BACKGROUND The expression of the rodent phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C delta-4 (PLCdelta4) has been found to be elevated upon mitogenic stimulation and expression analysis have linked the upregulation of PLCdelta4 expression with rapid proliferation in certain rat transformed cell lines. The human homologue of PLCdelta4 has not been extensively(More)
An improved method is reported for the isolation from cobra (Naja naja) venom of cobra factor (CoF), the anticomplementary protein which is derived from cobra C3. Sequential chromatography on DEAE-Sepharose, Sephacryl-S200, and finally hydroxylapatite yielded 6.25 mg CoF per gram of crude venom. The purified CoF had 1 unit of functional anticomplementary(More)
Background: The expression of the rodent phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C δ-4 (PLCδ4) has been found to be elevated upon mitogenic stimulation and expression analysis have linked the upregulation of PLCδ4 expression with rapid proliferation in certain rat transformed cell lines. The human homologue of PLCδ4 has not been extensively characterized.(More)
