On the basis obtained in a preceding study, cholesterol solubilization in aqueous bile salt-lecithin solution was investigated. The alteration of mixing sequence was found to yield differences not only in the rate but also in the magnitude of cholesterol solubilization. Both the rate and the magnitude were remarkably bigger in the system solubilizing cholesterol and lecithin mixture by bile salt than that solubilizing cholesterol crystal by bile salt with solubilized lecithin. A linear relation between the quantity of solubilized cholesterol and the concentration of bile salt except for lower concentration range was obtained for every bile salt-lecithin system. Values of k, the slope of the partial straight line, determined for cholate, chenodeoxycholate, deoxycholate and equimolar cholate-deoxycholate systems were 5.85 X 10(-2), 7.60 X 10(-2), 9.50 X 10(-2) and 7.17 X 10(-2), respectively. Cholesterol solubilizing power of bile salt was thus enhanced by the addition of lecithin. Since the solubilizing power could be given by the ratio of the solubilizate to the solubilizer, it was expressed graphically by the ratio of cholesterol to bile salt as ordinate and the concentration of bile salt as abscissa. The saturability of chole...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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
