Immunological identification and localization of the predominant nuclear protein of the amphibian oocyte nucleus

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
G Krohne, W W Franke


Nuclei of vitellogenic oocytes of the frog, Xenopus laevis, contain a prominent protein, representing about 10% of nuclear protein, which is characterized by a polypeptide of M(r) 30,000. This protein is highly phosphorylated and acidic, displays several isoelectric variants with pI values ranging from 4.7 to 5.3, shows a high thermostability, is not stably complexed with other proteins, and is readily extracted in buffer solutions. Guinea pig antibodies against this protein have allowed its specific immunoprecipitation and localization by immunofluorescence microscopy, using both frozen tissue sections and cells grown in vitro. The protein is located almost exclusively in the nucleus where it appears to be spread throughout the nuclear interior. It is also a major nucleus-specific protein in vitellogenic and previtellogenic oocytes of other amphibian species as well as in other cell types, including hepatocytes, follicle epithelial cells, and cultured Xenopus cells, but is not detected in nuclei of transcriptionally inactive cells such as erythrocytes and spermatids. An immunologically related, if not identical, protein occurs in nuclei of higher vertebrate cells, including mammals. The properties of this abundant nuclear phos...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.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
