In Escherichia coli high-level production of some heterologous proteins (specifically, human prorenin, renin, and bovine insulin-like growth factor 2) resulted in the induction of two new E. coli heat shock proteins, both of which have molecular masses of 16 kDa and are tightly associated with inclusion bodies formed during heterologous protein production.(More)
A deletion variant of human interleukin-3, hIL-3(15-125), was produced in the periplasmic space of Escherichia coli and had full activity in an AML193.1.3 cell proliferation assay. Libraries of random single-amino acid substitutions were constructed at each of 105 positions in the gene for hIL-3(15-125). Approximately eight single-site substitutions at each(More)
Osteoarthritis is characterized by the loss of aggrecan and collagen from the cartilage extracellular matrix. The proteinases responsible for the breakdown of cartilage aggrecan include ADAMTS-4 (aggrecanase 1) and ADAMTS-5 (aggrecanase 2). Post-translational inhibition of ADAMTS-4/-5 activity may be important for maintaining normal homeostasis of aggrecan(More)
α-Sulfone-α-piperidine and α-tetrahydropyranyl hydroxamates were explored that are potent inhibitors of MMP's-2, -9, and -13 that spare MMP-1, with oral efficacy in inhibiting tumor growth in mice and left-ventricular hypertrophy in rats and in the bovine cartilage degradation ex vivo explant system. α-Piperidine 19v (SC-78080/SD-2590) was selected for(More)
The drug resistance genes on the r-determinants component of the composite R plasmid NR1 were mapped on the EcoRI restriction endonuclease fragments of the R plasmid by cloning the fragments using the plasmid RSF2124 as a vector. The sulfonamide (Su) and streptomycin/spectinomycin (Sm/Sp) resistance genes are located on EcoRI fragment G of NR1. The(More)
The region of R plasmid NR1 that is capable of mediating autonomous replication was cloned by using EcoRI, SalI, and PstI restriction endonucleases. The only EcoRI fragment capable of mediating autonomous replication in either a pol+ or a polA host was fragment B. SalI fragment E joined in native orientation with the part of SalI fragment C that overlapped(More)
Precise measurement of the position of the eye as it follows a moving target makes possible the exact computation of retinal information about the path of movement of that target. Comparing this retinal information with the reported visual perception of the path of movement enables inferences to be made concerning what information about eye position was(More)
A combinatorial mutagenesis strategy was used to create a collection of nearly 500 variants of human interleukin 3 (IL-3), each with four to nine amino acid substitutions clustered within four linear, nonoverlapping regions of the polypeptide. The variants were secreted into the periplasm of Escherichia coli and supernatants were assayed for IL-3(More)
