Lipid peroxidation and the thiobarbituric acid assay: standardization of the assay when using saturated and unsaturated fatty acids.
Saturated fatty acids are less vulnerable to lipid peroxidation than their unsaturated counterparts. In this investigation, individual fatty acids of the C(16), C(18) and (20) families were subjectedExpand

The cobalt-albumin binding assay: insights into its mode of action.
BACKGROUND We previously hypothesized that the N-terminus of human serum albumin (HSA) is altered during ischemic events, thus establishing the foundation for the cobalt-HSA binding assay phenomenon.Expand

Ca2+-related regulatory function of fibrinogen.
Fibrinogen displays a regulation of considerable physiological significance by lowering the Ca2+ requirement for the conversion of the fibrin-stabilizing factor (Factor XIII) zymogen to the range ofExpand

An analog of the human albumin N-terminus (Asp-Ala-His-Lys) prevents formation of copper-induced reactive oxygen species.
Copper mobilization and redox activity form damaging reactive oxygen species (ROS) and are implicated in the pathogenesis of ischemia-reperfusion injury, chronic inflammation, Alzheimer's disease,Expand

Alpha-chain domain of fibrinogen controls generation of fibrinoligase (coagulation factor XIIIa). Calcium ion regulatory aspects.
Fibrinogen (approximately 10(-5) M) labilizes heterologous interactions within the thrombin-modified factor XIII zymogen (i.e., XIII' = a2'b2) so that, in the time frame (ca. 10 min) of normalExpand

Relationships among bleeding severity, health‐related quality of life, and platelet count in children with immune thrombocytopenic purpura
Important outcomes for children with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) include health‐related quality of life (HRQOL) and bleeding severity. A HRQOL instrument for children with ITP, the Kids'Expand
