Abstract.In this paper, a vector bundle $SL_{2}(\mathbb{C}) {\times }_{B_{2}}
\mathbb{C}[B_{2}]$ over $X=SL_{2}/B_{2}$ with fiber $\mathbb{C}[B_{2}]=\mathbb{C}[t_{1},t_{2}^{\pm 1}]$ is constructed, where $\mathbb{C}[SL_{2}]$ is the algebra of regular functions on the linear algebraic group $SL_{2}(\mathbb{C})$, and $B_{2}$ denotes a Borel subgroup of $SL_{2}(\mathbb{C})$. As well, an imbedding of $\mathbb{C}[SL_{2}]$ into ${\mathbb{H}^{0}}={H}^{0}\left(X,SL_{2}(\mathbb{C})\right.$ $\left.{\times }_{B_{2}} \mathbb{C}[B_{2}]\right)$, the algebra of holomorphic sections of the previous bundle, is explicitly given. Moreover, an inclusion of the universal central extension $\mathbf{\widehat{\mathcal{G}}}_{\mathbb{C}[SL_{2}]}$ of the Lie algebra ${\mathbb{C}}[SL_{2}]{\times }_{{\mathbb{C}}\,} {\mathcal{G}}$, with $\mathcal{G}$ a simple complex finite dimensional Lie algebra, into the universal central extension of the Lie algebra ${\mathbb{H}^{0}}$ is proved.
