Cloning and characterization of a human angiotensin II type 1 receptor.
A human liver cDNA library was screened using a rat type 1 angiotensin II receptor cDNA coding sequence as a probe. cDNA clones were isolated which encoded a protein of 359 amino acids that sharedExpand

The nutrient factor queuine protects HeLa cells from hypoxic stress and improves metabolic adaptation to oxygen availability.
Queuine (q), a cyclopentendiol derivative of 7-aminomethyl-7-deazaguanine, is a nutrient factor for lower and higher eukaryotes, except yeast; it is synthesized in eubacteria partly at the level ofExpand

Structure and organization of Escherichia coli genes involved in biosynthesis of the deazaguanine derivative queuine, a nutrient factor for eukaryotes.
The plasmid pPR20 contains the gene tgt, which encodes tRNA guanine transglycosylase (Tgt), on a 33-kbp DNA insert from a region around 9 min on the Escherichia coli linkage map. The plasmid wasExpand
