We describe a homogeneous enzyme immunoassay for measurement of cannabinoid metabolites, as well as delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (I) in urine. Malate dehydrogenase from pig heart mitochondria was labeled with a derivative of I. The compound used to calibrate the assay was the I metabolite, 11-nor-delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol-9-carboxylic acid (II). With 15(More)
1. Aneuploidy occurs rarely in roses: about a hundred instances have been recorded since 1920. All reports are on cultivated (mostly hybrid) seedlings: none has so far been found in the wild. 2. Chromosome variation in progenies is always associated with phenotypic variation, but it is not possible to determine which changes are due to loss or gain of(More)
We describe a "fluorescence protection immunoassay," in which formation of an immune complex of a fluorescer-labeled antigen sterically protects the fluorescer from binding by antibodies to it. Competitive binding of unlabeled antigen by its antibody prevents formation of the fluorescer-labeled antigen immune complex, and allows anti-fluorescein to quench(More)
Macromolecular beta-galactosidase substrates were prepared by attaching o-nitrophenyl-beta-galactoside to carboxymethyldextran with positively charged linking groups. Almost all of the substituents were susceptible to enzymic hydrolysis by two distinct pathways. Under some conditions, there was random reaction to give a soluble product. In other conditions,(More)
We determined the conditions for labeling rabbit Fab' with fluorescein isothiocyanate to provide maximal fluorescence intensity compatible with the preservation of integrity of its single thiol residue. We found that we could reproducibly substitute Fab' with two fluorescein moieties in 30 min at room temperature at pH 8.9. We achieved a high level of(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus-1 reverse transcriptase-p66 is surprisingly unstable at 4 degrees C in a typical reverse transcriptase buffer that provides complete stability when enzyme is frozen at -70 degrees C. Incorporation of (rA)n(dT)12-18 template-primer in the buffer vastly improved solution stability of dilute enzyme. Incorporation of 1.0 M ammonium(More)
Antimorphine antibodies inhibit the activity of morphine conjugates of mitochondrial malate dehydrogenase. Conjugation of malate dehydrogenase through tyrosine and amino groups resulted in only moderate losses of enzyme activity. On conjugation through disulfide bonds the enzyme activity first increased but dropped sharply with increasing substitution. Only(More)
