The human platelet thromboxane A2/prostaglandin H2 receptor has been purified 6100-fold to apparent homogeneity by a three-step chromatographic procedure with an overall yield of 6%. A 6-fold purification of the receptor was first achieved by chromatography of 3-[(3-cholamidopropyl)dimethyl-ammonio]-1-propanesulfonate (CHAPS)-solubilized membrane proteins from human platelets on a diethylaminoethyl (DEAE)-Sepharose column. The DEAE eluate fractions containing receptor activity were then applied to a newly developed affinity column using the cyclohexyl derivative of SQ30,741 (SQ31,491) as the immobilized ligand. Elution of the receptor from the affinity column with BM13.177 yielded a further purification of 1700-fold. An additional 4-fold receptor purification from the affinity column eluate was achieved by HPLC using GPC 500 and GPC 100 columns connected in tandem. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and silver staining of the HPLC eluate containing purified receptor revealed a single, distinct band with a molecular weight of 55,000. The receptor binding activity was detected with [3H]SQ29,548 using a newly developed binding assay which involved immobilization of the receptor on polyethyleneimine-treated g...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.
