Physico-chemical characterization and partial purification of mouse immune interferon

The Journal of General Virology
J WietzerbinE Sulkowski


Mouse immune (type T) interferon was produced from suspensions of spleen cells (1 X 10(7) cells/ml) treated with 3 micrograms/ml of phytohaemagglutinin. The crude interferon was chromatographed on four sorbents with varying affinities, namely concanavalin A-Sepharose, Affi-Gel 202, Blue Sepharose CL-6B and Phenyl-Sepharose CL-4B. With each of these the interferon activity was observed to have considerable heterogeneity. By means of affinity chromatography, mouse immune interferon was purified 100 to 200 times with concomitant complete recovery of activity.

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

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.
