Enhancement of sulphatide metabolism in the hypertrophied kidney of C3H/He mouse with reference to [Na+, K+]-dependent ATPase

Sulphatide (cerebroside sulphate) metabolism of C3H/He mouse kidney was investigated in the course of compensatory renal hypertrophy in association with the change of [Na+,K+]-dependent ATPase, arylsulfatase A and beta-galactosidase activity. A remarkable increase in 35S incorporation into kidney sulphatide was observed 24 hours and especially 7 days after unilateral nephrectomy. In contrast, no significant alteration of 32P incorporation into major phospholipids such as phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine and sphingomyelin was demonstrated in the compensatory hypertrophied mouse kidney. [Na+, K+]-dependent ATPase increased to 126% of control in the remaining kidneys on 7 days after operation. Specific increase in 35S specific activity of kidney sulphatide suggests its possible link with the process of active ion transport through membrane-bound [Na+,K+]-dependent ATPase. Arylsulphatase A activity increased to 151% of control on days, while little change was observed in beta-galactosidase activity. These results suggest a sole concern of a turnover of sulphate moiety of sulphatide molecule in the elevated metabolism.

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.
