The present study analyzed iNOS and eNOS mRNA expression and NO production during development of hepatic abscess caused by Entamoeba histolytica trophozoites. One 374-bp sequence, which displayed 88% identity to mammalian iNOS protein, was isolated from LPS-stimulated peritoneal hamster macrophages. A separate 365-bp cDNA sequence showed 99% identity with(More)
A DNA sequence homologous to a G alpha s DNA probe, and the corresponding G alpha s protein (stimulatory alpha-subunit of GTP-binding protein) were detected in Phycomyces blakesleeanus. The protein was demonstrated in membrane fractions of dormant spores of this fungus using three different experimental approaches. Photoaffinity-labelling experiments with(More)
Evidence has been obtained for the presence of the small 22 kDa GTP-binding Rho protein in dormant spores of Phycomyces blakesleeanus. Immunoblotting with a polyclonal antibody against RhoA revealed a soluble and membrane-associated 22 kDa protein. When [32P]ADP-ribosylated by Clostridium botulinum C3 exotoxin the protein had a pI of 5.7, a value similar to(More)
The dimorphic yeast Yarrowia lipolytica is used as a model to study fungal differentiation because it grows as yeast-like cells or forms hyphal cells in response to changes in environmental conditions. Here, we report the isolation and characterization of a gene, ZNC1, involved in the dimorphic transition in Y. lipolytica. The ZNC1 gene encodes a 782 amino(More)
