The hydrogen isotope-effect that occurs in vitro during myo-inositol1-phosphate synthase-catalyzed conversion of D-[5-3H]glucose 6-phosphate into myo[2-3H]inositol 1-phosphate has been used to compare the functional role of the nucleotide sugar oxidation-pathway with that of the myo-inositol oxidation-pathway in germinating lily pollen. Results reveal a significant difference between the 3H/14C ratios of glucosyl and galactosyluronic residues from pectinase-amyloglucosidase hydrolyzates of the 70% ethanol-insoluble fraction of D-[5-3H, 1-14C]glucose-labeled, germinating lily pollen. This isotope effect at C-5 of D-glucose that occurred during its conversion into D-galactosyluronic residues of pectic substance is not explained by loss of 3H when UDP-D-[5-3H, 1-14C]glucose is oxidized by UDP-D-glucose dehydrogenase from germinating lily pollen. The evidence obtained from this study favors a functional role for the myo-inositol oxidation-pathway during in vivo conversion of glucose into galactosyluronic residues of pectin in germinating lily pollen.

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.
