We have characterized a soluble pertussis toxin (PT)-sensitive GTP-binding protein (G-protein) present in mouse mastocytoma P-815 cells. 65% of total ADP-ribosylation of PT substrate having a molecular mass of 40 kDa on SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in cell homogenate was detected in the supernatant after centrifugation at 100,000 x g for 90 min. [32P]ADP-ribosylation of cytosolic PT substrate was significantly enhanced on the addition of exogenous beta gamma complex. The molecular mass of the cytosolic PT substrate was estimated to be about 80 kDa on an Ultrogel AcA 44 column, but the beta gamma complex was not detected in the cytosol by using the anti-beta gamma complex antibody. Furthermore, the cytosolic PT substrate was found to have some unique properties: [35S]GTP gamma S binding was not inhibited by GDP and [32P]ADP-ribosylation was not affected by GTP gamma S treatment. Only after the cytosolic PT substrate had been mixed with exogenous beta gamma complex, did it copurify with exogenous beta gamma complex by several column chromatographies including an Octyl-Sepharose CL-4B column. The PT substrate was identified as Gi2 alpha by Western blot analysis and peptide mapping with S. aureus V8 protease. These result...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.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
