A highly sensitive fluorometric assay for "enkephalinase," a neutral metalloendopeptidase that releases tyrosine-glycine-glycine from enkephalins.
A fluorogenic peptide, dansyl-D-Ala-Gly-Phe(pNO2)-Gly (DAGNPG), was synthesized as a selective substrate for the neutral metalloendopeptidase (EC involved in enkephalin metabolism, and the assay itself is rapid, convenient, and sensitive. Expand
New enkephalinase inhibitors as probes to differentiate "enkephalinase" and angiotensin-converting-enzyme active sites.
Results suggest that brain “enkephalinase” behaves as an endopeptidase although exhibiting a preference for peptides with a free C-terminal carboxyl group, a feature lacking in angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE). Expand
Analysis of 5-methyl cytosine and 5-hydromethyl cytosine content and distribution in different lineages during the bovine development
The data provide the first overview of the tissue/cell/nuclear distribution of 5-mC and 5-hmC during the development in bovine with a locus on the lineage origin, and will be a useful reference to determine the epigenetic alterations induced by situations affecting nuclear reprogramming, such as nuclear transfer.
