The occurence of the human and rat epidermal SH-protease inhibitors in various human and rat tissues was studied by double radial immunodiffusion against specific antisera to the inhibitors. An immunoreactive protein was found in the extracts prepared from human and rat epidermis and from eosophageal and vaginal squamous epithelia, and from rat pro-ventricular squamous epithelium. No immunoreactive protein was found in man or rat in any other of their tissues, studied by us. The results strongly suggest that a protein reminiscent of the human or rat epidermal SH-protease inhibitor is present in squamous epithelia but not in other tissues. The identity of the epidermal inhibitor and the immunoreactive protein in the other squamous epithelia was confirmed by immunodiffusion, immunoelectrophoresis and gel chromatography, and by immunoinhibition of the papain inhibiting activity of the human epidermal and oesophageal inhibitors by gammaglobulins separated from antiserum to the human epidermal inhibitor.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.
