Rapid paper chromatographic separation of [14C] angiotensen II from some metabolites: application to organ distribution

A rapid, inexpensive method for the separation of 5-1-isoleucyl[14C] angiotensin II (A-II) from its various metabolites has been devised. A-II was extracted from tissues with absolute methanol (recovery 96%) and paper chromatographed in a butanol-acetic acid-water (18:2:5) medium for two ascents at 60 degrees C. The resulting RF for A-II of 0.45 was then compared with the RF values of three A-II metabolites produced by enzymatic degradation of the 14C-A-II and [14C]isoleucine. Trypsin degradation produced the [14C]hexapeptide metabolite, chymotryptic degradation produced the [14C]tetrapeptide metabolite and carboxypeptidase A degradation produced the [14C]heptapeptide. Increases in temperature produced a continuous increase in RF values for all the substances examined but the resolution decreased above 60 degrees C. Similarly, increases in the temperature caused the appearance of secondary peaks with some but not all peptides. The tryptic digest (hexapeptide) and the chymotryptic digest (tetrapeptide) are apparently acid- and heat-stable under the experimental conditions. All of the peptides examined failed to produce secondary peaks when heated at neutral pH. The method was used to study the tissue distribution of 14C-A-II aft...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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

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.
