Preparations of 28S rRNA and 12S RNA, obtained from sheep lymphocytes, were shown to inhibit the translation of globin mRNA. An inhibition by a given amount of 12S or 28S RNA was only obvious at saturating or near saturating levels of globin mRNA, suggesting that the inhibitory RNAs interacted with some factor essential for protein synthesis other than(More)
Finding central nodes is a fundamental problem in network analysis. Betweenness centrality is a well-known measure which quantifies the importance of a node based on the fraction of shortest paths going though it. Due to the dynamic nature of many today’s networks, algorithms that quickly update centrality scores have become a necessity. For betweenness,(More)
The properties of the protein synthesising systems of different lymphocyte preparations have been compared with those of non-lymphoid tissues. Polysome profiles from rat thymocytes, sheep mesenteric lymphocytes, rat liver and mouse ascites tumours showed that the commitment of ribosomes to protein synthesis in lymphocytes was relatively low. Initiation(More)
Several fractions of RNA prepared from the post-ribosomal cytosol of sheep lymphoid cells were found to include messenger-like RNA as defined by the following criteria: a, template activity, i.e. the ability to promote the incorporation of radioactive amino acids into protein in cell-free protein-synthesising systems derived from wheat embryos or ascites(More)
Practical routes to 9 alpha-hydroxypregnenes were developed by epimerization and hydration of 17 alpha-ethynyl-9 alpha,17 beta-dihydroxyandrost-4-en-3-one. In the three different methods of epimerization which were used, the C-9 alpha hydroxy group was not susceptible to rearrangement or other side reactions. C-21 functionalized 9 alpha-hydroxypregnenes(More)
