Possible evolutionary relationships of the nitrogenase proteins

Journal of Molecular Evolution
D KleinerK Wallenfels

Abstract

Comparisons of the amino acid compositions of the nitrogenase proteins from different organisms and their correlation with cross-reactivities and taxonomical data suggest an evolution within bacterial genomes rather than within plasmids. Comparisons of the amino acid compositions of nitrogenases and other ATP-ases show similarities which might be due to the evolution of these ATP-ases from a common ancestral protein.

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.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration

HLA Genetic Variation

HLA genetic variation has been found to confer risk for a wide variety of diseases. Identifying these associations and understanding their molecular mechanisms is ongoing and holds promise for the development of therapeutics. Find the latest research on HLA genetic variation here.
