Glycosaminoglycan-binding properties and secondary structure of the C-terminus of netrin-1.
Netrins are soluble neurite-outgrowth-promoting proteins related to the laminin B2 chain. Since these proteins and their receptor DCC (the "deleted in colorectal carcinoma" gene product) bindExpand

Sonographic tissue characterisation in thyroid gland diagnosis
SummaryPunch biopsy was carried out in 32 cases in which thyroid gland changes were sonographically classified as being of homogeneously normal or of homogeneously low echogenicity. Mean follicleExpand

Measurement of platelet-activating factor in a canine model of coronary thrombosis and in endarterectomy samples from patients with advanced coronary artery disease.
Platelet-activating factor (PAF, 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine) is a potent phospholipid mediator of numerous inflammatory and thrombotic responses. The purpose of this study was toExpand

The molecular species distribution of platelet-activating factor synthesized by rabbit and human neutrophils.
In this study, the molecular species distribution of 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (platelet-activating factor) synthesized by rabbit peritoneal and human peripheral neutrophils wasExpand

Biosynthesis of platelet activating factor in rabbit polymorphonuclear neutrophils.
The synthesis of platelet activating factor (1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine) was studied in rabbit peritoneal polymorphonuclear neutrophils. Upon stimulation with ionophore A23187 andExpand

Synthesis of 1-acyl-2-[3H]acetyl-SN-glycero-3-phosphocholine, a structural analog of platelet activating factor, by vascular endothelial cells.
Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECS) were challenged with thrombin in the presence of [3H]acetate to stimulate the production of radiolabeled platelet activating factor (PAF,Expand

Conversion of the Ca2+-ATPase from rhodospirillum rubrum into a Mg2+-dependent enzyme by 1,N6-etheno ATP.
Nucleoside triphosphate hydrolysis of R.rubrum ATPase complexes can be changed from Ca2+-dependence to Mg2+-dependence by replacing ATP with 1,N6-etheno ATP. Four ATPase complexes which have beenExpand
