L-Carnosine is a bioactive dipeptide present in mammalian tissues including the central nervous system. We have recently shown that L-carnosine is involved in the regulation of energy homeostasis through the autonomic nervous system, but the mechanisms for its biosynthesis and degradation have not yet been fully elucidated. Here we report the biochemical(More)
Neuronal nitric-oxide synthase (nNOS) has a PSD-95/Dlg/ZO-1 (PDZ) domain that can interact with multiple proteins. nNOS has been known to interact with PSD-95 and a related protein, PSD-93, in brain and with alpha1-syntrophin in skeletal muscle in mammals. In this study, we have purified an nNOS-interacting protein from bovine brain using an affinity column(More)
