OBJECTIVE To extend the knowledge on long-term effects of childhood abuse in psychiatric patients to a large sample, the authors explored childhood sexual and physical abuse in adult inpatients over 1,040 consecutive admissions. METHOD The 947 patients were admitted to a tertiary-care military medical center. Each patient was interviewed, and abuse(More)
Azotobacter vinelandii glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase isolated from cell sonicates was purified 81-fold to electrophoretic homogeneity and a specific activity of 73 units/mg protein using ion-exchange and Matrex Dye chromatography. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and molecular exclusion chromatography indicated the enzyme to be(More)
Haemophilus parasuis malate dehydrogenase ((S)-malate:NAD+ oxidoreductase; EC isolated from cell sonicates was purified 584-fold to electrophoretic homogeneity with a 19% recovery and a specific activity of 222 units/mg protein. SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and molecular exclusion chromatography indicated the purified enzyme to be a(More)
4-Dimethylamino-trans-cinnamaldehyde and chloroacetaldehyde are novel substrates of yeast alcohol dehydrogenase (EC In the present work, we have reported the steady-state kinetic constants for both substrates, and their chemical reactions with the enzyme protein itself. Both substrates are potentially useful for biotechnology, chemoenzyme(More)
The pH-dependence of the steady-state kinetic parameters and the ligand-binding parameters for competitive dead-end inhibitors for the yeast alcohol dehydrogenase (EC, constitutive, cytoplasmic) reaction was studied in the pH range 6-10. These studies were designed in order to assign the appropriate pKa values to all dissociation forms of enzyme in(More)
Glucose 6-phosphate oxidation, catalyzed by purified Azotobacter vinelandii glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase, was studied with respect to the selective utilization of NAD, NADP, thionicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or thionicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate as coenzyme. A sigmoidal relationship was observed for the effect of substrate(More)
Previous studies of Haemophilus influenzae documented the importance of several pyridine nucleotide-dependent enzymes in processing extracellular NAD and NMN to satisfy the V-factor growth requirement of the organism. The substrate specificities of two of these enzymes. NMN:ATP adenylyltransferase and NAD kinase, were investigated following partial(More)
