Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase: homologous molecules in deer mouse and man

C R Shaw


Two forms of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, A and B, have been reported in deer mouse tis sues. The B enzyme, which showed autosomally controlled polymorphism, is now found to be equally active to ward glucose-6-phosphate and galac tQse-6- phosphate; the A enzyme is specific for the former. Human and horse livers also have two forms of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase which exhibit the same substrate spe cifities as those in the deer mouse. A wide variety of electrophoretic patterns was seen in the human galactose-active enzyme.

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.
