Identification of adenovirus 2 early region 4 polypeptides by in vitro translation and tryptic peptide map analysis

Journal of Virology
T MatsuoM Green


The mRNA species encoded by early region 4 (E4) (map position [mp] 91.5 to 99.3) of adenovirus 2 were isolated from the polysomes of infected KB cells and were purified by hybridization to the cloned HindIII-F fragment (mp 89.5 to 97.3) or to EcoRI-C fragment (mp 89.7 to 100). The mRNA's were translated in vitro using [35S]methionine as a labeled precursor in rabbit reticulocyte lysates treated with micrococcal nuclease as well as in wheat germ lysates. Five major (35,000-molecular-weight [35K], 23K, 22K, 21K, 18K) polypeptides were observed when the reticulocyte lysate was used. The 23K, 22K, 21K, and 18K polypeptides were also observed with the wheat germ lysate, as well as a very prominent 11K polypeptide; the 35K polypeptide was not observed. Assignment of these polypeptides to E4 was further established by hybrid arrested translation. Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of a wheat germ translate resolved five polypeptides ranging from 18K to 23K, the major 11K polypeptide, and polypeptides of 10K and 9K. The in vitro 23K to 18K and 11K polypeptides migrated to approximately the same positions on two-dimensional gels as did seven 26K to 21K polypeptides and an 11K polypeptide synthesized in vivo (Brackmann et al., J.

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.

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
