Studies on ouabain-complexed (Na+ +K+)-ATPase carried out with vanadate

Vanadate is able to promote the binding of ouabain to (Na+ +K+)-ATPase and it is shown that vanadate is trapped in the enzyme-ouabain complex. Also ouabain-bound enzyme, the formation of which was facilitated by (Mg2+ +Na+ +ATP) or (Mg2+ +Pi), is accessible to vanadate when washed free of competing ligands used for the promotion of ouabain binding. For vanadate binding to (Na+ +K+)-ATPase and to enzyme-ouabain complexes a divalent cation (Mg2+ or Mn2+) is indispensable, indicating that the cation does not remain attached to the ouabain-bound enzyme. K+ further increases vanadate binding in the absence of ouabain, but seems to have no additional role in case of vanadate binding to enzyme-ouabain complexes. Mn2+ is more efficient than Mg2+ in promoting binding of vanadate and ouabain to (Na+ +K+)-ATPase. That K+ in combination with Mn2+, in analogy with the effect in combination with Mg2+, increases the equilibrium binding level of vanadate and decreases that of ouabain does not seem to favour the hypothesis of selection of a special E2-subconformation by Mn2+. The vanadate-trapped enzyme-ouabain complex was examined for simultaneous nucleotide binding which could demonstrate a two-substrate mechanism per functional unit of the e...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.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
