Vanadium Compounds: Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Therapeutic Applications
Vanadium is now known to be one of the more biologically important transition elements. This volume focuses on vanadium chemistry and biochemistry and summarizes the role of vanadium in treating… Expand
Structure of the membrane binding domain of CTP:phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase.
It has been proposed that the domain of the regulatory enzyme, CTP:phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase, which mediates reversible binding of the enzyme to membranes, is an amphipathic alpha-helix of… Expand

We have shown previously that bis(N,N-dimethylhydroxamido)hydroxooxovanadate (DMHV) is an excellent reversible inhibitor of protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) in vitro. DMHV does not carry a charge… Expand
(Z)6, (E)8-Heneicosadien-11-One: Synergistic Sex Pheromone Component of Douglas-Fir Tussock Moth, Orgyia pseudotsugata (McDunnough) (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae)
Three candidate sex pheromone components, (Z)6,(Z)9-, (Z)6,(E)8-, and (Z)6,(E)9-heneicosadien-11-one (Z6Z9, Z6E8, and Z6E9) were identified in pheromone gland extracts of female Douglas-fir tussock… Expand
Interaction of vanadate with phenol and tyrosine: implications for the effects of vanadate on systems regulated by tyrosine phosphorylation.

- 1 February 1986
The interaction of vanadate with phenol and N-acetyltyrosine ethyl ester in aqueous solution has been studied by using 51V nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. On the basis of these studies, it… Expand
Inhibition of phosphate-metabolizing enzymes by oxovanadium(V) complexes.
The chemical similarities between vanadate and phosphate combined with the ability of vanadate to readily undergo changes in coordination geometry allows this ion to strongly influence the function… Expand
Interaction of vanadate with uridine and adenosine monophosphate. Formation of ADP and ATP analogs
Vanadates as Phosphate Analogs in Biochemistry
There are two general kinds of ways in which vanadates can serve as phosphate analogs in biochemical systems. In the case of enzymes or other proteins which do not catalyse cleavage of a bond to the… Expand
