Purification of hepatic microsomal cytochromes P-450 from beta-naphthoflavone-treated Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), a marine teleost fish

Four isozymes of cytochrome P-450 were purified to varying degrees of homogeneity from liver microsomes of cod, a marine teleost fish. The cod were treated with beta-naphthoflavone by intraperitoneal injection, and liver microsomes were prepared by calcium aggregation. After solubilization of cytochromes P-450 with the zwitterionic detergent 3-[(3-cholamidopropyl) dimethylammonio]-1-propansulfonate, chromatography on Phenyl-Sepharose CL-4B, and subsequently on DEAE-Sepharose, resulted in two cytochrome P-450 fractions. These were further resolved on hydroxyapatite into a total of four fractions containing different isozymes of cytochromes P-450. One fraction, designated cod cytochrome P-450c, was electrophoretically homogeneous, was recovered in the highest yield and constituted the major form of the isozymes. The relative molecular mass of this form (58 000) corresponds well with a protein band appearing in cod liver microsomes after treatment with beta-naphthoflavone. Both cytochrome P-450c and a minor form called cytochrome P-450d (56000) showed activity towards 7-ethoxyresorufin in a reconstituted system containing rat liver NADPH-cytochrome P-450 reductase and phospholipid. Differences between these two forms were observed...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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.
