Fractionated polyuridylic acid with an average chain length of 55 nucleotides forms binary complexes with 30S subunits with a stoichiometry of I:I. These complexes are heterogeneous in stability. The more stable one is characterized by an association constant K2 - 5.5xI09 M-I, and the less stable-by KI = I06xM-I, at 20 mM Mg2+, 200 mM NH4(+) and 0 degrees C. The main reason for this heterogeneity is the presence or absence of the ribosomal protein SI in the presence or absence of the ribosomal protein SI in the subunits. Decrease of Mg2+ concentration down to 5 mM hardly changes the K2 values but reduction of the NH4(+) concentration to 50 mM results in a 25-fold increase of K2. Association constants K2 for the stable complex, i.e. in the presence of SI protein, were measured at different temperatures (0 - 30 degrees C) and the thermodynamic parameters of binding (delta H degrees, delta S degrees, delta G degrees) were determined. Analogous experiments were made with 70S ribosomes. K2 values as well as delta H degrees, delta S degrees, delta G degrees appeared the same both for 30S and 70S ribosomes in all conditions examined. This is strong evidence that the 50S subunits do not contribute to the interaction of poly(U) with the...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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

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.
