The Dunning rat prostate adenocarcinoma (R3327) is a reliable model that shares many similarities with the human tumor. Two sublines of the tumor, G and H, represent opposite extremes in histology and growth rate. Purified membrane fractions from G and H solid tumors were isolated by sucrose gradient. Tumor and normal prostate membrane proteins were labeled with 125I, incubated with G and H antisera, and precipitated by adsorption of antibody-antigen complexes to staphylococcal Protein A. Proteins were resolubilized and electrophoresed on two-dimensional gels, and the gels were autoradiographed. A total of eight labeled proteins were precipitated from the G and H tumors in the presence of G antisera. Of these, seven were homologous. One high-molecular-weight protein (Protein b) present on the G tumor was absent from the H tumor. The H tumor contained another high-molecular-weight protein (i) that was not found on the G tumor or on normal prostate. Normal prostate revealed a pattern similar to the G tumor except that Protein b appeared to be quantitatively reduced. Precipitation in the presence of H antisera showed similar patterns except that Protein b was not detected in the G tumor and was greatly reduced in the normal prosta...Continue Reading

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.
