Three enolase isoenzymes can be distinguished after electrophoresis of yeast crude extracts. After adding glucose to derepressed cells, there was a coordinated increase in the activity of enolase I and decrease in enolase II activity. Enolase I was found to be repressed and enolase II simultaneously induced by glucose. The third enolase activity remained(More)
A method for the rapid isolation of yeast enolases, yielding three distinct isoenzymes, has been devised. In the first step anionic proteins were precipitated with polyethyleneimine, whereas hydrophobic enolase isoenzymes remained in the supernatant. Secondly, the supernatant was 45% saturated with ammonium sulfate and bound to phenyl-Sepharose CL-4B.(More)
Few studies are reported on the formation of reactive carbon-centred radical species from toxic xenobiotics. In this paper the formation of carbon radicals derived from the skin sensitizer linalyl hydroperoxide is described using radical trapping and EPR studies. Radical trapping used TMIO as scavenger agent and light, heat or TPP-Fe(3+) as radical(More)
Mn2+ binding to poly(acrylic acid) at different degrees of ionization, alpha, has been studied from the frequency dependence of the water protons' relaxation rates T1(-1) and T2(-1). Site binding is treated as an equilibrium with the concentration of free ions at the immediate vicinity (CIV) of the polyion. The CIV is calculated as the solution of the(More)
Chemical shift and relaxation time measurements on the water protons in polyelectrolyte solutions containing divalent paramagnetic counterions have shown the existence of three types of counterions: - site bound with loss of water molecules and partial or complete release of the electrostriction in the first hydration sphere, - atmospherically trapped with(More)
