Pyruvate cycling involving possible oxaloacetate decarboxylase activity

Biochimica Et Biophysica Acta
R Rognstad


With high concentrations of pyruvate as substrate for hepatocytes from fasted rats, high rates of cycling between pyruvate and the dicarboxylic acids occur, as shown isotopically. This rate of cycling is adequate to account for the hydrogen translocation from the mitochondria to the cytosol to furnish NADH for lactate formation. Addition of sufficiently high concentrations of mercaptopicolinate to block almost completely glucose formation from pyruvate, depresses isotopic cycling and lactate formation by only about 50-75%. Under some conditions, when the normal phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase activity is inhibited, cytosolic oxaloacetate may be decarboxylated directly to pyruvate, possibly via the decarboxylase activity of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase.

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.

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.
