Abstract

Seven blood group H active glycopeptides were isolated from the defatted seeds of Euonymus Sieboldiana by a procedure that included extraction with cold phosphate-buffered saline, fractionation with ammonium sulfate, chromatography with CM- and DEAE Sepharose CL 6B, and gel filtration on Sepharose 4B and Sephacryl S-200. Each glycopeptide, except three macromolecular ones, eluted as a single symmetrical peak from the Sephacryl S-200 chromatography. On the basis of their elution from a column that had been calibrated with FITC-dextrans as molecular weight markers, these glycopeptides had molecular weights of approximately 110,000, 15,000 and 8,000. All isolated H active glycopeptides inhibited eel anti-H reagent at concentrations of 1 to 63 microgram/ml and exhibited a single precipitation band against the eel reagent on immunodiffusion. Furthermore, all of them contained galactose and arabinose as major sugars, with fucose, rhamnose, mannose, glucose and glucosamine as minor sugars. Amino acid analysis of the four H active glycopeptides retarded by the Sepharose 4B column revealed the presence of hydroxyproline together with large amounts of threonine and serine. However, the three excluded macromolecular H active glycopeptides...Continue Reading

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.

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.

Autism: Motor Learning

A common feature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the impairment of motor control and learning, consistent with perturbation in cerebellar function. Find the latest research on ASD and motor learning here.

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.

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

Protein Localization in Disease & Therapy

Localization of proteins is critical for ensuring the correct location for physiological functioning. If an error occurs, diseases such as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative disorders and cancers can present. Therapies are being explored to target this mislocalization. Here is the latest research on protein localization in disease and therapy.

Genetic Screens in Bacteria

Genetic screens can provide important information on gene function as well as the molecular events that underlie a biological process or pathway. Here is the latest research on genetic screens in bacteria.
