Kinetics of the appearance of nuclear estrogen binding sites in chicken liver

Hoppe-Seyler's Zeitschrift für physiologische Chemie
W Schneider, M Gschwendt


A single injection of estradiol to immature male chickens results in a very rapid increase in the number of both soluble and tightly bound nuclear estrogen binding sites. After an intermediate levelling off, a second longer lasting increase in binding sites is observed. Whereas the first rapid increase seems to be independent of RNA and protein synthesis, the second one obviously requires intact RNA and protein synthesis. From these results we conclude that there is a pool of cytoplasmic estrogen binding sites, which supplies the precursor for the nuclear binding sites. After this pool is exhausted, it is replenished by new synthesis of binding sites. However, although several laboratories have attempted to demonstrate directly the existence of such a cytoplasmic estrogen receptor in the chicken liver, all have so far been unsuccessful.

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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
