Purification and characterization of thermostable and nonthermostable 2-haloacid dehalogenases with different stereospecificities from Pseudomonas sp. strain YL.
Two novel hydrolytic dehalogenases, thermostable L-2-haloacid dehalogenase (L-DEX) inducibly synthesized by 2-chloropropionate (2-CPA) and nonthermostable DL-2-haloacid dehalogenase (DL-DEX) inducedExpand

Carpel weight, grain length and stabilized grain water content are physiological drivers of grain weight determination of wheat
Abstract Among the yield components, grain weight is considered a conservative trait whose determination is still beyond our complete understanding. Crop physiology uses a whole approach to studyExpand

Combining high grain number and weight through a DH-population to improve grain yield potential of wheat in high-yielding environments
a b s t r a c t Previous yield gains in wheat have been achieved through increased expression of grain number per unit area, while fruiting efficiency has also been shown to explain improved grainExpand

Mechanisms of Arg-Pro-Pro-Gly-Phe inhibition of thrombin.
Investigations determined the mechanism(s) by which Arg-Pro-Pro-Gly-Phe (RPPGF) inhibits thrombin-induced platelet activation. High concentrations of RPPGF inhibit thrombin-induced coagulantExpand

A Taxonomic Review of the Bivalve and Gastropod Mollusc Fauna along the Saudi Intertidal Zone of the Arabian Gulf
The bivalve and gastropod fauna of Saudi Arabian intertidal zone of the Arabian Gulf were surveyed during 1993. The investigated area covered a distance of about 250 km . Sampling took place fromExpand

The Preparation and Characterization of Novel Peptide Antagonists to Thrombin and Factor VIIa and Activation of Protease-Activated Receptor 1
Thrombin and protease-activated receptor 1 (PAR1) activation antagonists were prepared based upon the peptide RPPGF, the angiotensin-converting enzyme breakdown product of bradykinin. A library of 72Expand

Thrombostatin, a bradykinin metabolite, reduces platelet activation in a model of arterial wall injury.
OBJECTIVE Thrombin activates platelets and contributes to the occlusion of arteries following thrombolytic therapy or angioplasty. Thrombostatin (RPPGF), the angiotensin converting enzyme degradationExpand

Mapping the interaction of bradykinin 1–5 with the exodomain of human protease activated receptor 4
The angiotensin converting enzyme breakdown product of bradykinin, bradykinin 1–5 (RPPGF), inhibits thrombin‐induced human or mouse platelet aggregation. RPPGF binds to the exodomain of humanExpand

Streptococcal inhibitor of complement-mediated lysis (SIC): an anti-inflammatory virulence determinant.
Since the late 1980s, a worldwide increase of severe Streptococcus pyogenes infections has been associated with strains of the M1 serotype, strains which all secrete the streptococcal inhibitor ofExpand
