Tritium-labelled 4-deoxy-D-glucose (4-dglc) and 6-deoxy-D-glucose (6-dgcl) were prepared by catalytic hydrogenolysis of the corresponding deoxyiodo derivatives with gaseous tritium. The two sugars are transported into Saccharomyces cerevisiae by both the constitutive glucose and the inducible galactose carrier. Uranyl ions are powerful inhibitors. The pH optimum in uninduced cells lies at 5.5 for both sugars, the apparent activation energies (between 15 and 35 degrees C) are 25.1 kJ/mol and 16.5 kJ/mol, respectively. The steady-state intracellular concentration of both sugars is less than the extracellular one (no uphill transport). Neither of them is a substrate of yeast hexokinase. 4-Deoxy-D-glucose undergoes a dinitrophenol-sensitive conversion to an unknown metabolite which is not phosphorylated and may represent one of its oxidation products.

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

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.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
