Content and properties of different classes of membrane-bound polyribosomes during embryogenesis in chickens

T A OborotovaV I Mazurov


The quantitative ratio, chemical composition and sedimentation properties of three polyribosomal fractions (free polyribosomes and polyribosomes tightly and loosely bound to the endoplasmic reticulum) isolated from chicken embryos of different age were studied. The fraction of polyribosomes loosely bound to the membranes was obtained from the total preparation of membrane-bound polyribosomes by treatment with high ionic strength solutions. It was found that the polyribosomes loosely bound to the membranes and free polyribosomes possess similar chemical composition and sedimentation properties. All the fractions studied were characterized by a much higher polyribosomal content as compared to the 80S monomers. In the course of embryogenesis the amount of polyribosomes loosely bound to the membranes is decreased, whereas that of tightly bound ones is increased. These data are indicative of an enhanced synthesis of secreted proteins, particularly collagen, on tightly bound polyribosomes during embryogenesis in chicken.

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

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.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

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