Properties of residual catalase in the erythrocytes of Japanese-type acatalasemia

Human Genetics
M Ogata, J Mizugaki


In Japanese-type acatalasemia erythrocytes, the presence and properties of residual catalase were determined and compared with those of normal erythrocyte catalase. Residual catalase activity was proved by titration, active staining after polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and measurement of oxygen evolution. Residual catalase protein, demonstrated by double immunodiffusion, was similar to that of normal catalase. The properties of residual catalase activity were identical with those of normal catalase activity. It occurred as three fractions of equal specific activity by DEAE column chromatography. These observations suggest that Japanese-type acatalasemia contains residual catalase with properties similar to those of normal catalase.

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.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Torsion Dystonia

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Central Pontine Myelinolysis

Central Pontine Myelinolysis is a neurologic disorder caused most frequently by rapid correction of hyponatremia and is characterized by demyelination that affects the central portion of the base of the pons. Here is the latest research on this disease.
