Evidence for a biologically active, carrier-bound form of non-suppressible insulin-like activity (NSILA) in human serum

The International Journal of Biochemistry
H J Cornell, A C Herington


1. Quantitative gel filtration of Cohn fraction IV-1 has shown that high MW NSILA recovered under "neutral" conditions (pH 5.5) was greater in magnitude (approximately X 2) than acid-stable high MW NSILA obtained under acid conditions. 2. Recombination, at neutral poH, of high and low MW NSILA, obtained by previous acid gel filtration, gave quantitative recovery of activity which was solely of high MW. 3. These data indicate that a biologically active, and dissociable high MW form of NSILA exists in serum. 4. Con A-Sepharose affinity chromatography gave one unbound NSILA fraction and two bound fractions, which both gave high and low MW activity after acid chromatography. 5. This study provides the first evidence for a carrier-bound form of low MW NSILA which retains biological activity.

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.
