Polymorphism of the second component of human complement (C2). Observation of the rare phenotype (C2 2 (= C2 B) and data on the localization of the C2 locus in the HLA region

The polymorphism of the second component of human complement was studied by means of isoelectric focusing in polyacrylamide gels with subsequent complement-dependent lysis of sensitized sheep erythrocytes in an agarose overlay containing C2-deficient or normal human serum. In a material of 289 unrelated individuals the following gene frequencies were observed: C21=0.965 and C22=0.035. The rare phenotype C2 2 (=C2 B) could be seen once in a child of a C2 1--2 heterozygous mother. The investigation of the C2/HLA relationship revealed a very close linkage: Among 62 informative meiotic divisions one recombination between HLA-B and C2 was found (i.e. 1.61%); in addition, C2(2) was significantly associated with HLA-B15 and -Cw3. In a family with an HLA-B/D(DR) crossover C2 segregated together with HLA-D(DR). This supports the assumption of a C2 structural locus outside HLA-B, probably near HLA-D(DR).

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.

Social learning involves learning new behaviors through observation, imitation and modeling. Follow this feed to stay up to date on the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.
