Diabetic rats were treated with insulin at various dosages and for various periods of time. The influence of metabolic control on the synthesis of protein and basement membrane collagen of isolated glomeruli was investigated. The protein and basement membrane collagen synthesis was increased in the untreated diabetic rats compared to non-diabetic controls. The synthesis was not affected by high doses of insulin with brief normalization of the blood sugar. Insulin treatment from the beginning of diabetes only led to a normalization of protein synthesis in moderate metabolic control. On the other hand, a rise of the basement membrane collagen synthesis could only be prevented by a strict metabolic control of the rats. The results show that basement membrane collagen synthesis reacts very sensitively to the diabetic metabolic situation. Insulin deficiency itself does not appear to be alone responsible for alterations of basement membrane synthesis in diabetes.

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.

Torsion Dystonia

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.
