Electron spin resonance studies of erythrocytes from spontaneously hypertensive rats and humans with essential hypertension

K TsudaY Masuyama


The purpose of the present study was to investigate erythrocyte membrane abnormalities in hypertension by means of an electron spin resonance and spin-label technique. The erythrocytes from spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and humans with untreated essential hypertension were examined and compared with their normotensive counterparts, and electron spin resonance spectra were obtained for a fatty spin-label agent (5-nitroxy stearate) incorporated into the erythrocyte membranes. The value of outer hyperfine splitting (2T' parallel) was significantly higher in erythrocytes of SHR and humans with essential hypertension than in erythrocytes of normotensive controls (at 37 degrees C: SHR, 56.14 +/- 0.51 gauss [G], n = 8; Wistar-Kyoto rats, 52.22 +/- 0.86 G, n = 4, p less than 0.01; humans with essential hypertension, 56.94 +/- 0.27 G, n = 11; normotensive subjects, 55.44 +/- 0.36 G, n = 8, p less than 0.01). The order parameter (S) was also increased in the hypertensive rats and humans compared to their respective normotensive controls. When calcium was loaded to erythrocytes with calcium ionophore A23187 (0.9 microM) and CaCl2 (1.0 mM), the parameters of the spectra were increased. These changes were more prominent in the hyper...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.

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.
