In this inestigation, a determination of the isoenzyme contents of LDH and HBD activities in lactate dehydrogenase preparations and the differences in the interaction of these preparations with NAD analogues were examined. The results obtained were as follows. 1. The activity ratio between oxidation and reduction in LDH reaction is shown to be similar in both H4 and M4 preparations, whereas for HBD activity, the ratio seems to be lower in the M4 preparation than in H4(H4/M = 1/2). 2. NAD and its analogues (NXD, TNAD, and TNXD) are shown to be useful coenzymes for the LDH reaction, while 3-acetyl derivatives appear to be unsuitable for this purpose because of their lower activity. HBD activity with 3-acetyl NXD is shown to be higher than with TNAD or TNXD. among these NAD analogues, 3-acetyl NXD gives the highest HBD activity, especially in the M4 preparation. 3. The LDH activity of H4 relative to M4 preparations has been shown to be maximal when 450 mM lactic acid with NAD or 15 mM lactic acid with TNXD are used. Under these conditions, the contents of LDH subunits can be estimated with considerable reliability. As to HBD activity, the content of LDH subunit having HBD activity has been estimated by determing the enzyme activit...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.

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 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.
