The alteration of superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase, and NAD(P)H cytochrome c reductase in guinea pig polymorphonuclear leukocytes and alveolar macrophages during hyperoxia

The Journal of Clinical Investigation
M Rister, R L Baehner


Superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and NAD(P)H cytochrome c reductase were quantitated in polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) and alveolar macrophages (AM) obtained from guinea pigs exposed up to 90 h to 85% oxygen. PMN and AM were sonicated and separated into a 16,000-g pellet, a 100,000-g pellet, and a 100,00-g supernate. Superoxide dismutase activity increased in both cells within 18 h, persisted for 66 h and decreased by 90 h. The highest rate of increase was in the 100,000-g pellet containing 3.4% of total enzyme activity in PMN but 28% in AM. The enzyme induction in PMN and AM was partially inhibited by daily intracardiac injections of 50 mg/kg actinomycin D. During oxygen exposure, catalase activity in PMN and AM decreased to 60% of its original activity, and gluthathione peroxidase was reduced in PMN to 60% and in AM to 20% of control values. Although NAD(P)H cytochrome c reductase decreased to 50% in PMN, no change was noted in AM. Upon exposure to superoxide anion, purified catalase, the glutathione peroxidase of the 100,000-g supernate, NADH, and NADPH cytochrome c reductases of the 16,000-g pellet decreased to 66+/-5%, 72+/-4%, 52+/-8%, and 40+/-9%, respectively, of their original activity.

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.

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.
