Ligand- and DNA-induced dissociation of RXR tetramers.
Unliganded bacterially expressed RXR alpha lacking the N-terminal region AB (apo-RXR alpha delta AB) was found in solution as an apparent mixture of 165 kDa tetramers and 42 kDa monomers which couldExpand

Calcium-independent cytoskeleton disassembly induced by BAPTA.
In living organisms, Ca2+ signalling is central to cell physiology. The Ca2+ chelator 1,2-bis(2-aminophenoxy)ethane-N,N,N',N'-tetraacetic acid (BAPTA) has been widely used as a probe to test the roleExpand

The interaction between lipid derivatives of colchicine and tubulin: consequences of the interaction of the alkaloid with lipid membranes.
Colchicine is a potent antimitotic poison which is well known to prevent microtubule assembly by binding tubulin very tightly. Colchicine also possesses anti-inflammatory properties which are notExpand

Structure of leukotriene C. Identification of the amino acid part.
Abstract Leukotriene C, a “Slow Reacting Substance” (SRS) from mouse mast cell tumors, was earlier shown to be a derivative of 5-hydroxy-7,9,11,14-eicosatetraenoic acid with a cysteine containingExpand
