The protein kinase activity of rabbit reticulocyte and erythrocyte hemolysate is due to multiple forms (casein kinases and histone kinases) which have been partially purified by Sepharose 6B filtration followed by phosphocellulose chromatography in the presence of 0.2% Triton X-100. The casein kinase activity is resolved by such a procedure into two forms(More)
Both cytosol and membranes of human erythrocytes display protein kinase activity towards exogenous protein substrates such as casein, phosvitin and histones. The histone kinase activity, unlike casein kinase, of both cytosol and membranes is increased by cyclic AMP. The protein kinase forms removed from the membranes with 0.7 M NaCl, phosphorylate only(More)
Human arylesterase is localized in liver microsomes where the presence of different electrophoretic bands corresponding to the serum bands can be recognized. Serum arylesterase is mainly a result of liver activity and its high level might be explained by a low rate of elimination in urine. The behaviour of arylesterase towards inhibitors shows certain(More)
The first observation of the B_{s}^{0}→D[over ¯]^{0}K_{S}^{0} decay mode and evidence for the B_{s}^{0}→D[over ¯]^{*0}K_{S}^{0} decay mode are reported. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0  fb^{-1} collected in pp collisions by LHCb at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The branching fractions are measured to be(More)
Using a pp collision data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0  fb^{-1}, collected by the LHCb detector, we present the first search for the strangeness-changing weak decay Ξ_{b}^{-}→Λ_{b}^{0}π^{-}. No b hadron decay of this type has been seen before. A signal for this decay, corresponding to a significance of 3.2 standard deviations, is(More)
Violations of CPT symmetry and Lorentz invariance are searched for by studying interference effects in B^{0} mixing and in B_{s}^{0} mixing. Samples of B^{0}→J/ψK_{S}^{0} and B_{s}^{0}→J/ψK^{+}K^{-} decays are recorded by the LHCb detector in proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 (More)
A search for the rare decays B_{s}^{0}→μ^{+}μ^{-} and B^{0}→μ^{+}μ^{-} is performed at the LHCb experiment using data collected in pp collisions corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 4.4  fb^{-1}. An excess of B_{s}^{0}→μ^{+}μ^{-} decays is observed with a significance of 7.8 standard deviations, representing the first observation of this decay(More)
The protein kinase activity located in the cytosol of hereditary spherocytosis erythrocytes is due to multiple forms which can be resolved by Sepharose 6B filtration at high ionic strength into two fractions phosphorylating the whole casein on different sites. The membrane-bound protein kinases, solubilized by 0.7 M NaCl, display an elution volume from(More)
A search for CP violation in D^{0}→K^{-}K^{+} and D^{0}→π^{-}π^{+} decays is performed using pp collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3  fb^{-1}, collected using the LHCb detector at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The flavor of the charm meson is inferred from the charge of the pion in D^{*+}→D^{0}π^{+} and D^{*-}→D[over(More)
The oscillation frequency, [Formula: see text], of [Formula: see text] mesons is measured using semileptonic decays with a [Formula: see text] or [Formula: see text] meson in the final state. The data sample corresponds to 3.0[Formula: see text] of pp collisions, collected by the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies [Formula: see text] = 7 and(More)
