Regulation of avian erythrocyte AMP-deaminase

1. Kinetic data for avian erythrocyte AMP-deaminase in lysate supernatants and 2000-fold purified enzyme were consistent with an allosteric model having four binding sites for substrate. 2. Relative to the purified enzyme, AMP-deaminase in lysate supernatants exhibited a greater S0.5 and enhanced sensitivity toward phytic acid, but was far less sensitive toward potassium ion. 3. In the absence of potassium chloride, the enzymatic activity in lysates exhibited hysteresis at subsaturating 5'-AMP. This response was modified reversibly by allosteric ligands. 4. It is concluded that the characteristics of avian RBC AMP-deaminase, as expressed in lysates, may reflect important intermolecular interactions and better represent the regulatory properties of this enzyme in erythrocytes.

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.
