A standardless X-ray microanalytical procedure has been developed to determine the number of gold-labelled surface receptors on whole single cells. The effect of the injection of K2PtCl4 into mice on gold-labelled concanavalin A (Con A) receptors on peritoneal macrophages was examined with an energy dispersive X-ray detector in an SEM. The numbers of gold(More)
Glucoamylase (alpha-1,4-glucan glucohydrolase, EC 3.2.1.3) has been covalently linked to dialdehyde cellulose resulting in an immobilized enzyme containing 0.98% protein and an activity of 4.5 mg of the native enzyme per g of matrix, i.e. 46% relative activity. The complex lost its activity in continuous and batch hydrolysis of starch at 55 degrees C down(More)
The effects of glutaraldehyde, formaldehyde, or osmium tetroxide fixation on the number of labeled Con A surface receptors on mouse peritoneal macrophages were compared. Gold-labeled Con A receptors were found to be isolatedly arranged and evenly distributed on cell surfaces independent of the fixative used. Only cells preincubated with Con A and(More)
Endo-polygalacturonase (EC 3.2.1.15.) from Aspergillus spec. is much changed as far as its mode of action and the interaction with vegetable inhibitors of pectinase (from green beans and cucumbers) are concerned when it is covalently bound to insoluble carriers (Sepharose, cellulose powder, macroporous glass and nonporous ballotinis). Whereas a 2%(More)
The pectinolytic enzymes are of practical interest for the clarification of fruit juice. In the present paper the covalent coupling of polygalacturonase (PG; E. C. 3.2.1.15) is reported. A commercially available enzyme (Rohament P; 5 U/mg) and purified Endo-PG (200 U/mg) are immobilized to the following carriers: BrCN-activated Sepharose,(More)
Trypsin was covalently bound to carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) azide and dialdehyde cellulose (DAC). Thereby the maximum protein binding capacity of CMC (420 mg/g) is 28 times that of DAC (15 mg/g). The high protein binding capacity of CMC is explained by a change in structure, i. e. by surface increase of the original cellulose powder due to chemical(More)
A procedure for preparing derivatives of dialdehyde dextran-glass-carriers and their use for immobilization of trypsin is described. The dextran to the support as well as the trypsin to dextran were covalently immobilized via dialdehyde groups. The relative activity of immobilized trypsin in these enzyme-carrier-complexes amounted 17.3% and 20,4 (determined(More)
Addition of four equivalents of lithium 2,5-dimethylpyrrolide to a solution of [Mo(NAr)(OR(F6))(2)(CHC(5)H(4))](2)Fe (OR(F6)=OCMe(CF(3))(2)) in dichloromethane led to [Mo(NAr)(Me(2)Pyr)(2)(CHC(5)H(4))](2)Fe (2; Me(2)Pyr=2,5-dimethylpyrrolide) and lithium hexafluoro-tert-butoxide, which crystallizes out upon cooling the reaction mixture to -35 degrees C.(More)
