Purification and physicochemical properties of a hemagglutinin (GVA-1) in the red alga Gracilaria verrucosa.
The red alga Gracilaria verrucosa was found to possess hemagglutinins against various kinds of animal erythrocytes; among these the horse, guinea pig, and chicken erythrocytes were strongly…
Venoms from six species of marine fish: lethal and hemolytic activities and their neutralization by commercial stonefish antivenom
Results of neutralization tests suggest that venoms from the six species were comparable in terms of antigenecity, and both lethal and hemolytic activities of S. verrucosa venom were remarkably neutralized by the commercial stonefish antivenom.
Post-mortem biochemical changes in the muscle of Kuruma prawn during storage and evaluation of the freshness
K value, VBN, and lactic acid contents appeared to be useful as potential indices for the freshness of kuruma prawn during storage at low temperatures and decreased as the decomposition progressed.
A possible interaction of thioredoxin with VDUP1 in HeLa cells detected in a yeast two-hybrid system.
A yeast two-hybrid system was employed to search for proteins that bind to hTrx in HeLa cells, a type of HPV-transformed human cervical cancer cell, and 3 clones were found to code in frame for the carboxyl-terminal portion of VDUP1 protein, lacking at most the first 155 residues from the start codon.
Agmatine as a Potential Index for Freshness of Common Squid (Todarodes pacificus)
Changes in amines (tyramine, putrescine, cadaverine, agmatine, and tryptamine) were examined in the muscle of common squid during storage at 0°C, 3.5°C, and 15°C. Agmatine appeared to be most useful…
Effect of Storage Temperature on Rigor-Mortis and ATP Degradation in Plaice Paralichthys olivaceus Muscle
The muscle showed full rigor when ATP completely disappeared and lactic acid attained the maximum plateau (40–50 μmol/g), and correlated well with the decrease of ATP.
Cadaverine as a Potential Index for Decomposition of Salmonoid Fishes
A chemical method to evaluate decomposition in chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) and rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) was developed. Ethyloxycarbonyl derivatives of polyamines were formed from extracts…
Post-mortem biochemical changes in the muscle of disk abalone during storage
The changes in content of ATP and its related compounds, free amino acids, polyamines, and D-and L-lactic acids were investigated in the muscle of disk abalone during storage at 0, 5, and 10°C in relation to freshness and a remarkable decrease in ATP and ADP was observed together with the accumulation of AMP.
Purification and characterization of a lethal factor in venom from the crown-of-thorns starfish (Acanthaster planci).
