Affinity chromatography of mouse interferon: a modified purification procedure utilizing specifically purified antibodies

Acta Virologica

Interferon preparations of a high degree of purity were obtained by a one-step procedure using affinity chromatography on specifically purified immunoadsorbent. The procedure consisted of binding interferon harvested from serum-free medium and purified by Zn-acetate precipitation and SP-Sephadex chromatography to CNBr-activated Sepharose 4B (Column No. 1). In the next step, antiinterferon globulin was purified by affinity chromatography on Column No. 1 with the bound interferon. In this way, antibodies against purified interferon, which were free from non-antibody components, were obtained. The purified antibodies were then coupled to CNBr-activated Sepharose 4B forming Column No. 2. The latter had a binding capacity of 125 800 mouse interferon units per 4.8 ml of gel. This capacity was not altered during an 8-month period of use. The gel was capable to bind interferons obtained from fibroblasts and leukocytes and, partially, from serum. The resulting purified, products were similar, i.e. they were not influenced by volume, interferon activity, or purity of the starting material. The electrophoretic profiles of the products had a similar shape irrespective of the origin of the starting material.

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
