Determination of SRS-A release from guinea-pig lungs by a radioimmunoassay

Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications
D AharonyJ B Smith


A sensitive radioimmunoassay for leukotrienes (LTs) has been developed. Rabbits were immunized with a conjugate of LTD4 and bovine serum albumin, prepared by using 1,5-difluoro-2,4-dinitrobenzene as the coupling agent. The assay can detect 0.045 pmol LTD4 at a final plasma dilution of 1:72. 50% displacement of bound 3H-LTD4 was obtained with 0.43 +/- 0.03 pmol LTD4. LTC4, LTE4 and LTF4 cross-react 159%, 57% and 85%, respectively, whereas LTB4, 5-HETE and prostaglandins did not. The assay was validated by measuring the antigen-induced release of LTs from sensitized guinea-pig chopped lungs. High correlation (0.9434, p less than 0.05) was found when LTs were simultaneously determined by this assay and a bioassay on guinea pig ileum.

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.

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.
