Sarcoplasmic reticulum from flounder muscle having improved lipid peroxidative activity

Analytical Biochemistry
M BorhanH O Hultin


A procedure for the isolation of sarcoplasmic reticulum from winter flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus) resulted in a fraction with a specific activity of lipid peroxidation two to three times that of previous preparations. In addition, good stability of the NADH-dependent lipid peroxidative activity was achieved. There appeared to be minimal contamination of the preparation with lysosomes and mitochondria. The flounder sarcoplasmic reticulum was highly active with respect to ATPase and calcium uptake. The membrane fraction contained 43% lipid and 57% protein; 60% of the lipids were phospholipids. Phosphatidylcholine was the major phospholipid present.

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.
