Axyl hydrocarbon hydroxylase in Morris hepatoma 5123D

Aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase activity in Morris hepatoma 5123D is very low, but apparently increases by the administration of 3-methylcholanthrene, as demonstrated in the host liver, small intestine, and lung from the rats bearing this tumor. The peak level of the increased activity in tumor appears 48 hr after the initial administration when the repeated treatment is given intragastrically every 24 hr. 7,8-Benzoflavone increases the enzyme activity in tumor and lung, but not in liver and small intestine. Among the subcellular fractions of the tumor cells, induction of the enzyme by 3-methylcholanthrene was observed in microsomes and nuclei, and the increased level of the activity was higher in microsomes than in nuclei.

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.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
