This paper reports the use of a new density gradient compound, Iodixanol, for the resolution of the major organelles from mouse liver. A major advantage of Iodixanol over other iodinated density gradient media is its ready ability to form self-generated gradients. Gradient-forming conditions have been modulated to provide optimal recoveries of Golgi(More)
Nuclei isolated from D. discoideum and incubated in vitro with 3H-NAD synthesise poly(ADP-Rib). The optimum incubation conditions for the poly(ADP-Rib) polymerase were determined. The Km of the enzyme is 18 μm NAD and it is inhibited by nicotinamide. Most of the poly(ADP-Rib) synthesised is attached to nuclear proteins.
The physical and biological properties of Iodixanol, a new nonionic density gradient medium, are described in this paper. It is effectively a dimer of Nycodenz and it exhibits two significant advantages over previous iodinated density gradient media--its aqueous solutions are iso-osmotic up to a density of 1.32 g/ml and it is capable of forming(More)
We have studied the attachment of immunomagnetic beads to different cells, with particular interest in cells that did not, as expected, appear to bind antibody-coated beads. Through the use of immunofluorescence and laser scanning confocal microscopy it was possible to demonstrate that beads can detach significant amounts of antigen from the surface of(More)
This paper describes a radical new, one-step method for the routine isolation of the mononuclear cells from human blood in high yield and purity. In this procedure the blood sample is mixed with a Nycodenz separation medium prior to centrifugation. Erythrocytes and polymorphogranulocytes are pelleted during centrifugation leaving the mononuclear cells in(More)
