Proteolytic fragments from the lobster myosin molecule

The fragments produced by proteolysis of lobster abdominal muscle myosin with trypsin, alpha-chymotrypsin and papain have been investigated by sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) gel electrophoresis. Essentially monodisperse populations of long rods are produced by alpha-chymotryptic and papain digestion of rabbit myosin but corresponding digestion of lobster myosin yields multicomponent species. Similarly the low ionic strength insoluble fraction from tryptic digestion of lobster myosin is polydisperse in contrast to essentially monodisperse light meromyosin from rabbit myosin. Comparative tryptic digestion of rabbit and lobster myosin papain long rods shows that the latter have five susceptible cleavage sites in the subfragment-2 region while rabbit long rods have only one: both long rods appear to have three cleavage sites in the light meromyosin region. The fragments produced by tryptic digestion of rabbit myosin papain long rods have been tentatively identified by comparison with fragments isolated from papain digests of rabbit heavy meromyosin and tryptic digests of rabbit light meromyosin. The results suggest differences in sensitivity to enzymic proteolysis between the subfragment-2 regions in rabbit and lobster myosin as well...Continue Reading

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.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.

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.

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.
