Proteomics is a valuable tool for establishing and comparing the protein content of defined tissues, cell types, or subcellular structures. Its use in non-model species is currently limited because the identification of peptides critically depends on sequence databases. In this study, we explored the potential of a preliminary cDNA database for the(More)
The characterization of proteins released from filariae is an important step in addressing many of the needs in the diagnosis and treatment of these clinically important parasites, as well as contributing to a clearer understanding of their biology. This report describes findings on the proteins released during in vitro cultivation of adult Dirofilaria(More)
Uptake and metabolism of thymidine and adenosine have been studied in embryos of the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus. Uptake of these nucleosides is found to be mutually competitive, with the Km for uptake of thymidine similar to its Ki for inhibition of adenosine uptake and vice versa. The metabolic studies show that adenosine is rapidly and(More)
