Activation of proteolytic enzymes during autolysis of disintegrated baker's yeast

Folia Microbiologica
B Bĕhalová, K Beran

Abstract

Disintegration substantially accelerates autolysis of yeast cells. Three proteases (A, B, and C) take part in the autolytic process, protease A being the activator of the other two enzymes. The role of proteases B and C in the process depends on temperature. At 40 degrees C both proteases are active while at 50 degrees C the major role is played by protease C. At 40 degrees C NaCl acts as inhibitor while at 50 degrees C it activates the process.

COVID-19

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.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration
