Reoxygenation of isolated rat cardiac myocytes following a period of hypoxia and substrate deprivation resulted in a 1.5-2-fold increase in the total Ca2+ content which could be inhibited by 1 microM antimycin A or ruthenium red (50% inhibition at 2.5 microM). This increase in Ca2+ content was not accompanied by any release of creatine kinase into the(More)
The amino acid sequence of the large cyanogen bromide fragment (residues 11 to 127) derived from the NH2-terminal half of alpha-tropomyosin has been determined. This was achieved by automatic sequence analysis of the whole fragment as well as manual sequencing of fragments derived from tryptic digestion of the maleylated fragment and thermolytic, Myxobacter(More)
The amino acid sequence of a trimethoprim-resistant dihydrofolate reductase (EC 1.5.1.3) specified by the R-plasmid R67 is described. The sequence was deduced from automatic and manual sequence analysis of the intact protein, the fragments produced by cyanogen bromide cleavage, and peptides derived from the largest cyanogen bromide fragment by digestion(More)
We have used stopped-flow rapid reaction methods, employing both fluorescence and absorbance monitoring, together with HPLC analysis of the products to study the activation of soybean 15-lipoxygenase by 13(S)-hydroperoxy-9, 11(E,Z)-octadecadienoic acid (13-HPOD). When lipoxygenase is mixed with an equimolar concentration of 13-HPOD, the enzyme undergoes a(More)
1 Dexamethasone and hydrocortisone induced the release of anti-phospholipase proteins into the peritoneal cavities of rats. 2 Adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) also releases these proteins in normal but not in adrenalectomized rats. 3 Peritoneal lavage proteins were separated by ion-exchange and size exclusion chromatography. The anti-phospholipase(More)
Reoxygenation of the hypoxic myocardium results in a number of processes, including an O2-dependent increase in total tissue Ca2+ and cell lysis in which mitochondrial electron transport plays a key role. In the present study we have isolated mitochondria from perfused rat hearts subjected to hypoxia and found no change in their respiratory function(More)
