Bipiperidyl mustard, a new obesifying agent in the mouse

Science
R J RutmanW Bloomer

Abstract

Bipiperidyl mustard, after conversion to its bis-cyclic immonium ion forme, has been found to cause rapid and extensive lipid deposition in mice given single doses of the drug. The obe sity appears to result from an alkylation reaction; the responses of the treated ani mals to food restriction and realimenta tion resemble those observed in gold thioglucose-treated mice; also in anal ogy to gold thioglucose, the bipiperidyl mustard effects can be counteracted by sulfhydryl compounds. These observa tions are suggestive of a similarity of mode of action between the alkylating agent and gold thioglucose, a conclusion which is supported by preliminary find ings of ventromedial lesions in the hypo thalamus of the bipiperidyl mustard treated mice.

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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

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

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

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.
