The effects of fractions (chalones) obtained from lymphoid organs on lymphocyte proliferation in vitro

Agents and Actions
P C HiestandH F Stähelin


Aqueous extracts of lymphoid organs were prepared and fractionated by means of gel filtration, ion exchange chromatography, and isoelectric focusing. A protein-containing fraction with a molecular weight of approximately 80,000--90,000 and isoelectric points of 7.6 and 5.3--6.2 was isolated and shown to inhibit reproducibly both thymidine incorporation and proliferation of concanavalin A-stimulated mouse spleen lymphocytes in vitro. This effect appeared specific since proliferation of mastocytoma P-815 and leukemia L-1210 cells remained unaffected. A small molecular weight fraction (500 to 10,000 daltons) was also found to inhibit lymphocyte proliferation in vitro but was without apparent specificity for cell type.

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.
