L-asparaginyl-tRNA synthetase and L-asparagine synthetase activities of L-asparaginase-sensitive and -resistant forms of the mouse Gardner lymphoma 6C3HED

Clinical Science

1. The mouse Gardner lymphoma 6C3HED was grown in ascites fluid in a form sensitive to the action of L-asparaginase (line 1), in another form which was resistant to L-asparaginase (line 2) and in a third form with partial sensitivity to L-asparaginase (line 3). 2. The L-asparaginyl-tRNA synthetase activities of extracts of the tumour cells, cultured both in the mouse and in vitro, were determined. Two of the lines, 1 and 3, in early passage numbers, showed a derepression mechanism involving L-asparagine. Mutation occurred with these lines resulting in the L-asparaginyl-tRNA synthetase activity of all the tumour cell lines being the same. 3. Cells of line 1 had low L-asparagine synthetase activity, which was unchanged by altering the supply of L-asparagine in vitro. Cells of lines 2 and 3 exhibited L-asparagine synthetase activities, which changed with the supply of L-asparagine. 4. It is not certain that L-asparagine synthetase activity of L-asparaginase-sensitive cells is controlled by L-asparaginyl-tRNA acting as a corepressor.

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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
