Restoration of enzyme induction, reduced as a result of long-term cortisol administration, in rat liver

Restoration of tyrosinamine transferase (TAT) with cortisol in the rat hepatocytes after the cessation of prolonged (for many days) administration of this hormone was investigated. The effect of the liver regeneration and insulin administration on this process was also studied. In single cortisol administration the TAT activity rose 5-fold; the induction response decreased after 21 days of daily administration. The TAT induction in response to cortisol administration was restored completely only on the 25th--30th day after the cessation of this hormone injection. A three-day insulin administration led to the restoration of TAT induction in response to cortisol administration. The process of the liver regeneration during the first 24 hours after partial hepatectomy induced TAT in the cells of both control animals and those given cortisol for prolonged periods; besides, it aided restoration of the induction response to cortisol administration.

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.

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.
