Effect of l-Proline on Sake Brewing and Ethanol Stress in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
ABSTRACT During the fermentation of sake, cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae are exposed to high concentrations of ethanol, thereby damaging the cell membrane and functional proteins. l-ProlineExpand

A new rat mutant with chronic conjugated hyperbilirubinemia and renal glomerular lesions.
A new mutant strain of inbred Sprague Dawley rats with autosomal recessive hyperbilirubinuria, were studied by biochemical, histologic, and ultrastructural methods. The plasma bilirubin concentrationExpand

Desensitization of Feedback Inhibition of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae γ-Glutamyl Kinase Enhances Proline Accumulation and Freezing Tolerance
ABSTRACT In response to osmotic stress, proline is accumulated in many bacterial and plant cells as an osmoprotectant. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae induces trehalose or glycerol synthesis butExpand

Construction and analysis of self-cloning sake yeasts that accumulate proline.
We constructed self-cloning diploid sake yeast strains that accumulate proline. The appropriate proline level is important for its protective effect against ethanol stress in yeast cells. Sake brewedExpand

Characterization of new inbred strains of Dahl-Iwai salt-sensitive and salt-resistant rats.
Dahl-Iwai salt-sensitive (S) and salt-resistant (R) rat strains were newly established as inbred strains. To characterize the strains, the Dahl-Iwai S and R rats were fed low-salt (0.3% NaCl) andExpand

[Establishment of hyperbilirubinuria rat mutant--a new animal model for jaundice].
A new animal model for jaundice, a hyperbilirubinemic rat mutant (EHBR, Eizai hyperbilirubinuria rat), was established from Sprague-Dawley rats. Hyperbilirubinemia was inherited as an autosomalExpand

A new mutant rat with hyperbilirubinuria (hyb).
We have discovered mutant rats with hyperbilirubinuria at the laboratories of Eisai Co., Ltd., Gifu, Japan, and established a new inbred mutant strain, which was designated Eisai HyperbilirubinuriaExpand

Genetic profiles of newly inbred Dahl/Iwai salt-sensitive and salt-resistant rats.
Dahl-Iwai salt-sensitive (S) and salt-resistant (R) rat strains were established as inbred strains at Brookhaven National Laboratory, NY, and were introduced into Eisai Co., Ltd., Japan, andExpand

A new mutant rat with turning behavior (Tur).
A new rat mutant with abnormal behavior has been found in a closed colony of Slc: SD. The affected rats turned around after their own tails beginning 4-5 weeks after birth, in response toExpand
