In vitro formation of reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH)-nitrate reductase (NADPH: nitrate oxido-reductase, EC 1.6.6.2) has been attained by using extracts of the nitrate reductase mutant of Neurospora crassa, nit-1, and extracts of either photosynthetically or heterotrophically grown Rhodospirillum rubrum, which contribute the(More)
Malondialdehyde (MDA), an endogenous product of lipid peroxidation and prostaglandin biosynthesis, is mutagenic in bacterial and mammalian cells and carcinogenic in rats. In order to determine whether MDA-modified bases are formed in nucleic acids in vivo, sensitive immunoassays to detect MDA-DNA and MDA-RNA adducts are being developed in our laboratory.(More)
The kinetics of natural killer (NK) cytotoxicity mediated by the cloned interleukin 2 (IL 2)-dependent human natural killer cell line NK3.3 has been investigated. This cloned cell line exhibits strong cytotoxic activity that is restricted to NK target cells. The initial rate of lysis of K-562 target cells by these cloned NK cells was, as anticipated,(More)
The rate of disintegration of target cells subsequent to lytic programming by human peripheral blood natural killer (NK) cells was investigated using a quantitative calcium pulse technique. The rate of this initial calcium-independent target cell disintegration was indicative of a first-order decay process for programmed target cells with a calculated(More)
Motivation: Reactome is a free, open-source, open-data, curated and peer-reviewed knowledge base of biomolecular pathways. Pathways are arranged in a hierarchical structure that largely corresponds to the GO biological process hierarchy, allowing the user to navigate from high level concepts like immune system to detailed pathway diagrams showing(More)
A covalent conjugate between the plasminogen activator urokinase and polyclonal rabbit anti-human fibrinogen has been formed using the heterobifunctional coupling reagent N-succinimidyl 3-(2-pyridyldithio) propionate. The resultant urokinase-anti-human fibrinogen conjugate was separated from unreacted material by gel filtration. The conjugate exhibited(More)
