The molecular weight of boar acrosin in neutral solution was estimated to be 41000 +/- 1000 by high-speed sedimentation equilibrium analysis. This result is in good agreement with the value found earlier[1] by sodium dodecylsulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The sedimentation coefficeint of acrosin obtained by active enzyme centrifugation of partly purified preparations is in accordance with the sedimentation coefficient of the pure preparation estimated by conventional sedimentation velocity analysis. The sedimentation coefficient of acrosin is considerably decreased in slightly acidic solution (pH 4), indicating that changes in the tertiary structure occur upon acidification. The amino acid composition of the acrosin preparation homogeneous by electrophoretic and chromatographic criteria and in sedimentation studies was determined. Valine was found as the unique N-terminal amino acid. However, in microheterogeneous forms of acrosin, alanine and methionine were also detected in end group analysis.

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.
