Multicellular spheroids of a human glioma cell line (U-118 MG) and a human thyroid cancer cell line ( HTh -7) were analyzed for the presence of extracellular matrix (ECM) using light microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and indirect immunofluorescence staining for fibronectin, laminin, and collagen. These studies were supplemented by analyses of(More)
The glycosaminoglycans of human cultured normal glial and malignant glioma cells were studied. [35S]Sulphate or [3H]glucosamine added to the culture medium was incorporated into glycosaminoglycans; labelled glycosaminoglycans were isolated by DEAE-cellulose chromatography or gel chromatography. A simple procedure was developed for measurement of individual(More)
Synthesis of monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (GalDAG) and digalactosyldiacylglycerol (GalGalDAG), the major membrane lipids in cyanobacteria, begins with production of the intermediate precursor monoglucosyldiacylglycerol (GlcDAG), by monoglucosyldiacylglycerol synthase (MGS). In Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 (Synechocystis) this activity is catalyzed by an(More)
The biosynthesis pathway of carotenoids in cyanobacteria is partly described. However, the subcellular localization of individual steps is so far unknown. Carotenoid analysis of different membrane subfractions in Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 shows that "light" plasma membranes have a high carotenoid/protein ratio, when compared to "heavier" plasma membranes or(More)
Kinetics of interaction between the H+-translocating component of the mitochondrial ATPase complex and oligomycin or dicyclohexylcarbodiimide were studied in beef heart submitochondrial particles, and the results suggest that the two inhibitors have different binding sites with respect to the membrane and to F1. Oligomycin seems to be bound to a subunit or(More)
