With a homologous gene region we successfully isolated a Na+/H+ antiporter gene from a halophytic plant, Atriplex gmelini, and named it AgNHX1. The isolated cDNA is 2607 bp in length and contains one open reading frame, which comprises 555 amino acid residues with a predicted molecular mass of 61.9 kDa. The amino acid sequence of the AgNHX1 gene showed more(More)
We have previously demonstrated that the tetraspanin CD9 is necessary for membrane fusion between sperm and oocyte during fertilization. While knockout mice for CD9 are viable, CD9(-/-) females are sterile due to the inability of their oocytes to fuse with sperm. While CD9 is not essential for subsequent development, a role in embryonic stem (ES) cell(More)
NADPH-cytochrome P-450 reductase was purified to 30.8 units/mg from monkey liver microsomes. The purified reductase showed one major protein band (78,000) and two minor ones (58,000 and 20,000) on analysis by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). Monkey, rat, and guinea pig reductases were not immunochemically identical to each other judged(More)
