Cell-free preparations from seeds of Marah macrocarpus L. and Malus domestica L. catalyzed the conversion of gibberellin A(9) (GA(9)) and 2,3-dehydroGA(9) to GA(7); GA(9) was also metabolized to GA(4) in a branch pathway. The preparation from Marah seeds also metabolized GA(5) to GA(3) in high yield; GA(6) was a minor product and was not metabolized to(More)
Mitogen-associated protein kinase (MAPK)- and protein kinase A (PKA)-dependent signal transductions play important roles in the regulation of gene expression. Both MAPK and PKA pathways can be activated by light exposure. In this study, we investigated the effect of light on MAPK and PKA signal transduction and their roles in the regulation of rhodopsin(More)
When the metabolism of [13C,3H]gibberellin (GA)20 in Pisum sativum L. was investigated using decapitated plants and stem sections, no evidence was obtained for the recently postulated inhibitor of GA20 3[beta]-hydroxylase (V.A. Smith [1992] Plant Physiol 99: 372-377). Instead, the results are consistent with the hypothesis that the mutation le reduces GA1(More)
This study has identified the range of plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations of the uncompetitive N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antagonist dizocilpine (MK-801) required for neuroprotection in the quinolinate-lesioned rat striatum. Dizocilpine was given i.v. as a bolus injection followed by a continuous infusion for 4 h, drug administration(More)
