Characterization of 7-8S progestin binding protein in human prostate using vertical tube rotor

The specific binding of the synthetic progestin, 17 alpha-methyl[3H]promegestone (R5020), to the cytosol of human benign hyperplastic prostate has been studied in sucrose density gradients using a vertical tube rotor. The cytosol of human prostate was shown to contain substantial amounts of a 7-8S macromolecule with a high affinity (Kd = 0.5-1 nM) for R5020 which is saturated at low concentrations (10 nM). The conventional technique of sucrose density gradient analysis in a swinging bucket rotor was not suitable for reproducible optimal analysis of a 7-8S high affinity complex. The use of the salt, Na2MoO4, had a stabilizing effect on the complex. Comparison of saturation analysis assays using dextran charcoal assay and vertical tube rotor assay showed that the charcoal assay can give an over-estimation of the 7-8S saturable binding. Progestational steroids competed with R5020 for binding to 7-8S, whereas androgenic steroids, with the exception of 19-nor-testosterone, did not compete. Incubation of cytosol at elevated temperatures in the presence of DNA-cellulose resulted in the binding of the hormone-protein complex to DNA-cellulose. High ionic strength buffer was required to extract the complex which sedimented at 4.5S in suc...Continue Reading

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.
