Abstract

The properties of fructose-1.6-disphosphatase in supernatant of homogenate of liver, kidneys, and adductor muscles of cattle were tested. EDTA was found to activate the enzyme up to concentrations of 10 mMol. The pH optimum was 7.5 in the presence of EDTA. Even lower concentrations of magnesium ions caused activation of the enzyme, but an activating effect was obtained as well from relatively high Mg concentrations. Fructose-1.6-diphosphatase could by activated also by 0.2 mMol Mn or Co ions or 1 mMol Zn ions. Inhibitive action was obtained from Cu, Cd, Pb, and Hg ions. Microsomal fractions of cattle liver and kidney caused high activity of glucose-6-phosphatase, but only low action was obtained be using microsomal fractions of mesenteric mucous membrane or brain. Mg ions, basically, failed to trigger activation, and higher concentrations even caused inhibition. The relatively high activity of both fructose-1.6-diphosphatase and glucose-6-phosphatase in kidney of cattle appeared to suggest an involvement of those enzymes in gluconeogenesis.

COVID-19

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

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