Separation of non-melatonin antiovulatory substances from bovine pineal powder by ultrafiltration

Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology
M OtaK Obara


An attempt was made to partially separate substances which inhibit the induced ovulation by PMS and hCG in immature mice from the sodium borate buffer extract of bovine pineal powder by means of ultramembrane filtration. The antiovulatory activities were concentrated in fractions which possess materials of a molecular weight greater than 10,000 and also in fractions containing substances of a molecular weight less than 1000. The proteinaceous large inhibitor was thermostable while the small inhibitor, which is different from melatonin or arginine vasotocin, was inactivated by heating.

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.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

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.
