Experiments on cancer cell lines and animal models indicated that alteration in expression of N-myc down-regulated gene 1 (NDRG1) is associated with development of colon cancer. However, few clinical data are available to assess the role of NDRG1 in progression of human colorectal cancer. This study was undertaken to reveal the prognostic and predictive(More)
1. Amino acid composition and immunological properties of the frog liver LMW AcPase forms: AcPase III and IV were examined. 2. AcPase III and IV show nearly identical amino acid composition and close immunological similarity. 3. These results indicate protein identity of both the enzyme forms and together with our previous data [Kubicz A., Szalewicz A. and(More)
The SeqA protein of Escherichia coli is not only the main negative regulator of DNA replication initiation but also a specific transcription factor. It binds to hemimethylated GATC sequences and, with somewhat different specificity, to fully methylated GATC regions. Recently, a microarray analysis was reported, in which transcriptomes of wild-type and(More)
A role for the Escherichia coli RNA polymerase alpha subunit in transcription antitermination dependent on bacteriophage lambda N protein has been previously inferred from the isolation of rpoA mutants that alter the efficiency of this process. This report describes studies on the efficiency of N-dependent transcription antitermination in a strain(More)
The cellular localization of the 35 kDa, low molecular mass acid metallophosphatase (LMW AcPase) from the frog (Rana esculenta) liver and its activity towards P-Ser and P-Tyr phosphorylated peptides were studied. This enzyme was localized to the cytoplasm of hepatocytes but did not appear in other cells of liver tissue (endothelium, macrophages, blood(More)
Frog liver acid phosphatase hydrolyzes phosphotyrosine at acidic pH optimum. Mn2+, Ca2+ and Mg2+ (but not Zn2+) ions modulate this activity by shifting its pH optimum to physiological pH. This effect is not observed when p-nitrophenylphosphate is used as a substrate. Phosphoserine and phosphothreonine are not hydrolyzed under the same conditions.
The lower molecular weight (35 kDa) acid phosphatase from the frog (Rana esculenta) liver is a glycometalloenzyme susceptible to activation by reducing agents and displaying tartrate and fluoride resistance. Metal chelators (EDTA, 1,10-phenanthroline) inactivate the enzyme reversibly in a time- and temperature-dependent manner. The apoenzyme is reactivated(More)
A well-defined CeOx/Pt(111) model catalytic system has been fabricated using the self-assembling of Ce adatoms on a Pt(111) surface with a subsequent oxidation of the nucleating Ce submonolayer (0.3 ML). The resulting system of the ‘‘inverse supported catalyst’’ type consists of CeOx nanoformations (2D islands of 5–15 nm size and 0.3 nm in height) more or(More)
A role for the Escherichia coli RNA polymerase α subunit in transcription antitermination dependent on bacteriophage λ N protein has been previously inferred from the isolation of rpoA mutants that alter the efficiency of this process. This report describes studies on the efficiency of N-dependent transcription antitermination in a strain containing the(More)
