In heat-stressed (HS) tomato (Lycopersicon peruvianum) cell cultures, the constitutively expressed HS transcription factor HsfA1 is complemented by two HS-inducible forms, HsfA2 and HsfB1. Because of its stability, HsfA2 accumulates to fairly high levels in the course of a prolonged HS and recovery regimen. Using immunofluorescence and cell fractionation(More)
The influenza virus M2 protein, target of the antiviral drugs amantadine and rimantadine, forms a proton channel which functions during virus uncoating and maturation by modifying the pH in virions as well as in trans-Golgi vesicles. We studied the influence of different ionic gradients on the inhibition of the proton translocation activity of isolated,(More)
Acetylcholinesterases (EC, AChE) have varying amounts of carbohydrates attached to the core protein. Sequence analysis of the known primary structures gives evidence for several asparagine-linked carbohydrates. From the differences in molecular mass determined on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel before and after deglycosylation with(More)
In order to establish reference values for corneal sensitivity in ophthalmologically healthy persians (n = 40) and domestic short hair cats (n = 60) a prospective study was conducted. Furthermore corneal sensitivity in 48 cats with a corneal sequestrum was measured. Corneal sensitivity was recorded with the help of the aesthesiometer according to Cochet and(More)
In this study the eyes of 15 cats in the terminal stage of FIV infection were examined. The findings were compared to those in cats, which were euthanized because of other infectious diseases for for non-infectious reasons. Thirteen FIV-infected cats showed an anterior uveitis by means of light microscopy. No accumulation of retinal lesions were found in(More)
Bilateral blindness was diagnosed in a 5-year-old Hanoverian gelding presented for evaluation of a corneal opacity in one eye. About 12 months prior to the examination, the gelding had fallen head over, hitting his head and the cornea. Clinical and electroretinographic findings as well as pathohistologic and ultrastructural lesions of both eyes including(More)
1. Comparison of partial amino acid sequences of G2-acetylcholinesterase (AChE) from bovine erythrocytes and G4-AChE from bovine caudate nucleus revealed no differences in primary structure between the two enzymes. The first 33 residues of the N-terminal sequences were identical. 2. In addition, the amino acid sequences of four peptides generated by tryptic(More)
