Hydrolysis of collagen was studied in the bull bone tissues by the Str. griseus crystalline protease. The amount of collagen hydrolyzed by it composed 6.6% and 16% after 4-hour and 6-hour hydrolysis, respectively. When the enzyme:substrate ratio is 1:50 hydrolysis proceeds most intensively; with a decrease in the ratio up to 1:1000 the average amount of peptides increase from 2.6 up to 4 amino acidic residua, respectively. Under conditions of denaturated collagen hydrolysis the content of hydroxyproline in solution as compared with the native one increases; in this case the links with the presence of imino-acids are easier to split, the more resistant being those formed by hydroxyproline. Within the limit of 20-45 degrees C hydrolysis of protein intensifies with a temperature rise. Within the pH range of 5.0-11.0 the maximal amount of alpha- NH2-groups and hydroxyproline is observed at pH 8.5, the minimal--at PH 5.0. Hydroxyproline in the composition of peptides appears at the beginning of hydrolysis whereas the free one of enzymes of the longer effect 24 h after the beginning of the experiment composes 12.2% of its total content in the solved products. In the insoluble part of the substrate after 3-hour hydrolysis tyrosine com...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.

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

Position Effect Variegation

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.
