A 2.1 kb DNA segment carrying the purine-cytosine permease gene (FCY2) of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was sequenced, the primary structure of the protein (533 amino acids) deduced and a folding pattern in the membrane is proposed for the permease protein. Expression of the FCY2 gene product requires a functional secretory pathway and is reduced in mnn9, a(More)
A panel of 13 sugar beet lines and one genotype each of the Beta vulgaris cultivars red beet and Swiss chard, and B. vulgaris ssp. maritima were used to identify polymorphisms in alignments of genomic DNA sequences derived from 315 EST- and 43 non-coding RFLP-derived loci. In sugar beet lines, loci of expressed genes showed an average SNP frequency of 1/72(More)
We present in this paper the nucleotidic sequence of the FUR4 gene encoding the uracil permease in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The deduced amino acid sequence of the permease has 633 residues; it consists of many hydrophobic stretches, only the N-terminal and C-terminal ends of the protein (about 100 and 50 amino acids respectively) being mostly(More)
An antiserum (ARK-1) specific to the gonadotropin-releasing hormone precursor (proGnRH) was produced by immunizing with a synthetic peptide (proGnRH 6-16; Gly-Leu-Arg-Pro-Gly-Gly-Lys-Arg-Asp-Ala-Glu) which bridges the proteolytic cleavage site of proGnRH. When used in the radioimmunoassay, ARK-1 bound 25% of the iodinated 5-16 fragment at a 1:30,000(More)
Recapture of lysosomal enzymes secreted by fibroblasts was inhibited by growing the cells in the presence of either free or immobilized antibodies against lysosomal enzymes or in the presence of phosphorylated carbohydrates known to interact with the cell-surface receptors for lysosomal enzymes. The following results were obtained. 1. Conditions that(More)
Adsorptive endocytosis of five different lysosomal enzymes from various human and non-human sources was susceptible to inhibition by mannose and l-fucose, methyl alpha-d-mannoside, alpha-anomeric p-nitrophenyl glycosides of mannose and l-fucose, mannose 6-phosphate and fructose 1-phosphate. A few exceptions from this general scheme were observed for(More)
