Evidence is presented that Achromobacter iophagus produces two distinct collagenases. Achromobacter collagenases A and B were separated by high-performance liquid chromatography from partially purified enzyme. The main collagenase, A (EC, which has been already described, was eluted in the region of molecular mass 110-90 kDa. A minor collagenase B eluted in the region of 320 kDa, although in SDS-gel electrophoresis the apparent molecular masses of its main active forms were estimated as 55 and 110 kDa. The specificities of collagenases A and B are different. Collagenase A splits in its synthetic substrate Pz-Pro-Leu-Gly-Pro-DArg the bond Leu-Gly, collagenase B does not split this substrate. Both collagenases split bonds Gln-Gly and Leu-Gly in synthetic peptides DNP-Pro-Gln-Gly-Ile-Ala-Gly-Gln-DArg-OH and DNP-Pro-Leu-Gly-Ile-Ala-Gly-DArg-NH2, respectively. Collagenase B is twice as active as A on the native collagen type I. Both enzymes are inhibited by EDTA. The antibodies raised against the human tooth collagenase specifically inhibited the collagenase B, but did not influence the activity of collagenase A. These results indicate, to our knowledge for the first time, an immunological relationship between a bacterial ...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.

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.
