Identical mutation in a novel retinal gene causes progressive rod-cone degeneration in dogs and retinitis pigmentosa in humans.
Progressive rod-cone degeneration (prcd) is a late-onset, autosomal recessive photoreceptor degeneration of dogs and a homolog for some forms of human retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Previously, theExpand

A protein engineering study of the role of aspartate 158 in the catalytic mechanism of papain.
The controversy concerning the various suggested roles for the side chain of Asp158 in the active site of papain has been clarified by using site-directed mutagenesis. Both wild-type papain and anExpand

Charge is the major discriminating factor for glutathione reductase versus trypanothione reductase inhibitors.
Benson et al. (Biochem. J. 1992, 286, 9) reported three novel competitive inhibitors of trypanothione reductase (TR), which were selected to complement a hydrophobic region identified on the TRExpand
