The NAD(P)H:flavin oxidoreductase from Escherichia coli, Fre, is a monomer of 26.2 kDa that catalyzes the reduction of free flavins by NADPh or NADH. Overexpression in E. coli now allows the preparation of large amounts of pure protein. Structural requirements for recognition of flavins as substrates and not as cofactors were studied by steady-state(More)
The inhibition of human telomerase has been explored using peptide conjugated derivatives of a PNA pentamer directed at the RNA template of telomerase. It is demonstrated that the presence of cationic peptides at the N-terminus of the PNA results in enhanced inhibition of telomerase activity. Furthermore, inhibition depended on the specificity of PNA(More)
The intracellular transport of newly synthesized lysosomal hydrolases to lysosomes requires the presence of one or more phosphorylated high mannose-type oligosaccharides per enzyme. A receptor that mediates mannose-6-PO4-specific uptake of lysosomal enzymes is expressed on the surface of fibroblasts and presumably accounts for the intracellular transport of(More)
Some flooring-system designs might be sensitive to their vibrational performance, as there might be the risk that serviceability-limit-state problems may be encountered. For evaluating the vibrational performance of the flooring-system at the design stage, decisions need to be made by the engineer in charge of computations. On a flooring-system often(More)
