Cell lysis in presence of SDS and proteinase K followed by salting-out of residual polypeptides by dehydration and precipitation with saturated sodium chloride solution [Miller, S.A., Dykes, D.D. and Polesky, H.F., Nucleic Acids Res., 16, 1215, 1988] efficiently resolves deproteinized DNA. However, this DNA is still associated with prominent polypeptides(More)
The tightly bound proteins (TBPs), a protein group that remains attached to DNA either covalently or noncovalently after deproteinization, have been found in numerous eukaryotic species. Some TBPs isolated from mammalian and yeast cells possess phosphatase or kinase activity. The aim of this study was to characterize further TBPs in barley (Hordeum vulgare)(More)
Although described some time ago, gamma-butyrobetaine esters and related compounds have not gained much attention from researchers, and their physiological function remains obscure. Formerly we detected GBB-esterase enzymatic activity in rat blood serum using phenylated gamma-butyrobetaine as an artificial substrate of the enzyme and HPLC. The aim of the(More)
Abbreviations: IUBMB nomenclature recommendations were used in this report. Elongation factor 1B complex was previously named eEF-1βγδ. The complex subunits are eEF1Bα, previously named eEF-1β, and eEF1Bγ, previously eEF-1γ. Abstract: The multi-subunit eukaryotic translation elongation factor 1 (eEF1) consists of two functionally distinct parts: G-protein(More)
BACKGROUND The tightly bound to DNA proteins (TBPs) is a protein group that remains attached to DNA with covalent or non-covalent bonds after its deproteinisation. The functional role of this group is as yet not completely understood. The main goal of this study was to evaluate tissue specific changes in the TBP distribution in barley genes and chromosomes(More)
