The three-dimensional solution structure of the 1:1 complex between the synthetic peptide ZF-1 and zinc was determined by 1H NMR spectroscopy. The peptide, initially isolated from pig intestines, is identical in sequence to the 30 N-terminal amino acid residues of the human protein Lasp-1 belonging to the LIM domain protein family. The final set of 20(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigated the potential role of ADAMTS-1 (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin motif type I) in atherogenesis. METHODS AND RESULTS ADAMTS-1 is expressed at the highest levels in the aorta when compared with other human tissues examined. Immunolocalization studies in human aorta and coronary artery indicate that ADAMTS-1(More)
The disulfide-linked dimer of apolipoprotein A-IMilano (A-IM/A-IM), a natural Arg173-->Cys variant of apoA-I, was purified from carriers' plasma and produced in Escherichia coli. The recombinant A-IM/A-IM is identical to native A-IM/A-IM, by mass spectrometry, SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and isoelectric focusing. Lipid-free A-IM/A-IM undergoes(More)
Glutamine synthetase from Rhodospirillum rubrum can be isolated in two forms, with low and high activity, respectively, depending on the concentration of combined nitrogen in the medium before harvest. The two forms have been studied with respect to their dependence on Mn2+ and Mg2+ in both the transferase and the biosynthetic assay. There is no difference(More)
Expanded bed adsorption is a new downstream processing technique forcapture of proteins directly from unclarified feedstocks. Expanded bed adsorption reduces the number of operations in purification processes by combining clarification, concentration, and capture into one operation. It is based on stable fluidization and uses adsorbent particles with(More)
