Studies on specific elution of rabbit muscle phosphofructokinase with allosteric ligands

I I RapanovichL Ia Tsybanova


The specific elution of rabbit skeletal muscle phosphofructokinase (PFK) from DEAE-cellulose is studied in the linear gradient of different allosteric ligands. Citrate and fructose-6-phosphate elute PFK at concentrations of 1.0 and 2.5 mM respectively, i.e. without increasing the ionic strength of the starting buffer (similar to 0.12). The specificity of elution is confirmed by comparison of the ionic strength of these solutions with that of buffer eluting PFK in buffer gradient (mu=0.17) as well as by comparison with the eluting ability of other ligands. Fructose-1,6-diphosphate elutes PFK only at the concentration of 5.5 mM which corresponds to the ionic strength 0.17. MgATP and AMP are inefficient as specific eluents whereas ATP and ADP elute only a small part of PFK with concomitant substantial increase of the ionic strength (up to 0.17--0.18). These results are discussed in terms of a charge compensation mechanism as a result of the displacement of PFK conformers equilibrium under the influence of the allosteric ligands.

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

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.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.
