In this paper, the existence and purification of two species of phosphofructokinase regulatory factor activity are reported. The purification procedure included liver homogenization and ultracentrifugation, a 93 degrees C heat step on the supernate, precipitation with ammonium sulfate, DEAE-cellulose column chromatography, and Sephadex G-75 (fine) chromatography. Two discrete regions of factor activity were eluted from the DEAE-cellulose column with a 0 to 0.5 M linear NaCl gradient. The lesser anionic fraction was not significantly retarded by DEAE-cellulose at pH 7.6, and was referred to as factor A. The more anionic form, factor B, eluted at about 0.2 M NaCl. The presence of two active fractions was confirmed by separation of factor activity (prior to DEAE-cellulose chromatography) into two discrete species by preparative isoelectric focusing on granulated gel. The isoelectric points were approximately 7.0 for factor B and 8.5 for factor A. Factor A and factor B exhibited quite different elution volumes, i.e., apparent molecular weights, when applied to a Sephadex G-75 column. Rechromatography on a Sephadex G-75 column was used for further purification and estimation of native molecular weight. The gel filtration method yiel...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.
