The antigenic composition was studied in the fraction of prealbumins obtained by preparative electrophoresis in the agar hel of proteins salted out from the aqueous extract of bull cerebral hemispheres with amminiom sulphate within saturation limits of 60-100% (fraction 0.6-1). The chickens antisera immunized with the fraction of bull brain prealbumins were used in the experiment. One organospecific and species-nonspecific antigen called the antigen D is found by the method of immunoelectrophoresis in the components of the prealbumin fraction by means of the antisera obtained. This antigen is detected in water-soluble proteins of the bull great cerebral hemispheres and optic nerve. The antigen immunologically identical to that of the bull is contained in the aqueous extract of the rabbit and rat brain and is not found in the chicken brain.

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.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
