We have isolated cDNA clones from thyrotoxic (pMHC alpha) and normal (pMHC beta) adult rabbit hearts. Restriction map analysis and DNA sequence analyses show that, although there is strong homology between overlapping regions of the two clones, they are distinctly different. The two clones exhibited 78-83% homology between the derived amino acid sequences(More)
Calicheamicin gamma 1I is a recently discovered diyne-ene--containing antitumor antibiotic with considerable potency against murine tumors. In vitro, this drug interacts with double-helical DNA in the minor groove and causes site-specific double-stranded cleavage. It is proposed that the observed cleavage specificity is a result of a unique fit of the drug(More)
We have isolated gene sequences coding for the alpha- and beta-myosin heavy chains (HC) of rabbit ventricular muscle. A rabbit genomic library was screened with previously characterized cDNA clones specifying part of the light meromyosin and the entire subfragment 2 portion of alpha- and beta-myosin HCs, as well as with a clone containing the 3'(More)
In the synchronous embryogenesis system of sandalwood developed in our laboratory, we observed that the early events of differentiation from freshly induced callus (stage 0) are accomplished in three distinct stages viz., preglobular masses (stage 1), globular embryos (stage 2), and bipolar embryos (stage 3). Transition from stage 0 to 1 was accomplished(More)
Two myosin heavy chain cDNA clones (251 and 110), constructed from chick embryonic skeletal muscle mRNA, were subjected to extensive DNA sequence analysis. A complete description of the DNA sequence of clone 251 was obtained. This 1.5-kilobase pair cDNA sequence specified the COOH-terminal 439 amino acids of the myosin heavy chain, and included the entire(More)
Aufgrund der zunehmenden Patientenanzahl und der Komplexität der modernen ICD-Geräte gewinnt eine effiziente Therapieüberwachung, wie sie durch Home Monitoring angeboten wird, zunehmend an Bedeutung. Wir berichten über einen ICD-Patienten mit einer unaufhörlichen Kammertachykardie, bei dem eine sofortige Übertragung der Rhythmusstörung durch Home Monitoring(More)
The expression of mRNAs for two cardiac myosins has been studied in the ventricles of hypo- and hyperthyroid rabbits by using cloned cDNA sequences corresponding to the mRNAs of the alpha- and beta-myosin heavy chains (HCs). The temporal change in relative levels of the alpha and beta HC mRNAs after triiodothyronine (T3) treatment of hypothyroid rabbits was(More)
Vibrio el tor cells contain a constitutive reductase enzyme which converts nitrofurantoin to an active principle that is responsible for the observed antibacterial activity of the drug. Acquisition of resistance of this strain towards nitrofurantoin is associated with the loss of this reductase. This enzyme is located in the periplasmic region of the(More)
AIM To evaluate the efficacy of single dose Azithromycin (1 gram) in treatment of cholera in adults. A randomized, controlled clinical trial on 120 adults with acute watery diarrhoea and moderate to severe dehydration compared the efficacy of azithromycin (1 gram) single dose and Norfloxacin (400 mg) twice daily for three days in treating cholera. Data were(More)
