Asynchronous synthesis of erythrocyte membrane proteins

The synthesis of membrane proteins of the mature mouse erythrocyte is asynchronous. During erythropoiesis, synthesis of the bulk of the spectrin and actin polypeptides is completed before that of the major transmembrane glycoprotein. Synthesis of the glycoprotein ceases before that of several minor proteins found on the inner surface of the red cell membrane, and one of these minor proteins is made predominantly by reticulocytes. These findings were the result of experiments in which a normal mouse was given a single injection of [35S]methionine. The appearance of radioactivity in the membrane proteins of circulating mature erythrocytes was followed. The earliest labeled proteins to emerge into the blood represent those synthesized at the last stages of erythropoiesis.

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.
