Newcastle disease virus-specific RNA: an analysis of 24 S and 35 S RNA transcripts

Abstract

The denaturation of Newcastle disease virus-specific 24 S and 35 S RNA by heat or formamide treatment led to a shift of a large part (60--80%) of RNA into the 18 S zone. The remaining 20--40% could not be dissociated further by repeated denaturation or by centrifugation in dimethyl sulfoxide-sucrose gradient. Hybridization-competition analysis revealed that the majority (approximately 75%) of the non-dissociable 35 S RNA and almost all the material present in the non-dissociable 24 S RNA were represented by nucleotide sequences homologous to 18 S RNA. On the other hand, the non-dissociable 35 S RNA lacked some of the sequences present in 18 S RNA, since no more than 45% of the labelled 18 S RNA could be displaced from the hybrid by an excess of unlabelled non-dissociable 35 S RNA. The possible origin of 24 S and 35 S RNA is discussed.

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.

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.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
