Perfusion of the rat liver in situ for 150 min provides for maintaining optimal values of acid-base balance for the following indexes: surplus of bases, content of standard bicarbonate, buffer bases pH, pO2, pCO2, HbO2, the level of bile secretion, content of lactate, pyruvate, ATP, ADP, that evidences for a high functional activity in the tissue. Introduction of dinitro-ortho-cresol (DNC) into the perfusion liquid causes development of acidosis. DNC results in dissociation of oxidative phosphorylation: the content of ATP and intensity of inorganic phosphorus utilization decrease, oxygen uptake intensifies. A compensatory increase in the glycolysis intensity directed to maintaining the level of macroergs under these conditions is is pronounced in the intensified uptake of glucose, in a rise in the content of lactate in perfusate and an increase in the pyruvate kinase activity in the liver. The redox state of NAD-pairs (ratio of [NAD+] : [NADN] calculated from the content of redox metabolites and the equilibrium constant for the lactate dehydrogenase system shifts toward an increase in the reducing properties of hepatocytes cytoplasm. The phosphate potential value calculated from the ratio [ATP] : [ADP] - [Pinor] lowers under co...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

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.
