In this study, we present a novel technique for the synthesis of complex prokaryotic and eukaryotic proteins by using a continuous-exchange cell-free (CECF) protein synthesis system based on extracts from cultured insect cells. Our approach consists of two basic elements: First, protein synthesis is performed in insect cell lysates which harbor endogenous(More)
The inositol polyphosphate 5-phosphatase SHIP plays an important role in negative signalling in B cells and mast cells and in the down-regulation of cytokine receptor-mediated signals in myeloid cells. SHIP is expressed as a 145 kDa full-length protein and an isoform of 135 kDa due to alternative splicing. Additional smaller forms of SHIP which are(More)
Autophagy is a self-degradative process that involves turnover and recycling of cytoplasmic components in healthy and diseased tissue. Autophagy has been shown to be protective at the early stages of programmed cell death but it can also promote apoptosis under certain conditions. Earlier we demonstrated that oxygen contributes to the pathogenesis of(More)
Cooking of proteinous food results in the formation of heterocyclic amines. Among these, 2-amino-3-methyl-9H-pyrido[2,3-b]indole (MeAalphaC) has been identified as a mutagenic pyrolysis product of soya protein and has been detected in grilled or pan fried meat. It was subsequently proven to be carcinogenic in mice and, recently, in rats and to form covalent(More)
Open cell-free translation systems based on Escherichia coli cell lysates have successfully been used to produce antibodies and antibody fragments. In this study, we demonstrate the cell-free expression of functional single-chain antibody variable fragments (scFvs) in a eukaryotic and endotoxin-free in vitro translation system based on Spodoptera frugiperda(More)
EcoRV completely encircles bound DNA with two loops, forming the entry and exit gate for the DNA substrate. These loops were crosslinked generating CL-EcoRV which binds and releases linear DNA only slowly, because threading linear DNA into and out of the DNA-binding 'tunnel' of CL-EcoRV is not very effective. If the crosslinking reaction is carried out with(More)
2-Amino-9H-pyrido[2,3-b]indole (A alpha C) is among the most prevalent heterocyclic amines detected in grilled or panfried meat; it was shown to be carcinogenic in mice, to induce preneoplastic foci in rat liver, and to form covalent DNA adducts in vitro and in vivo. The corresponding nitro compound 2-nitro-9H-pyrido[2,3-b]indole (N alpha C) was prepared(More)
This study is among the first to examine the relationship between sexual orientation and rape myth adherence using a nationwide survey of primarily lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer (LGBQ) respondents (n = 184). The more established Illinois Rape Myth Acceptance Scale and a modified Male Rape Survey serve as the primary instruments to test both rape myth(More)
