Western blot analysis (immunoblotting) of cell surface-associated proteins from Helicobacter pylori confirmed our previous findings that binding of human IgG is a common property (among H. pylori strains). Purification of the IgG-binding proteins (IGBP) was achieved by two purification steps, affinity chromatography on IgG-Sepharose and nickel chelate(More)
Bovine lactoferrin binds to a 60 kDa heat shock protein of Helicobacter pylori. Binding ability was related to human immunoglobulin G because bovine lactoferrin binding proteins were isolated by extraction of cell surface associated proteins with distilled water, applied on IgG-Sepharose and nickel sulphate chelate affinity chromatography. Binding was(More)
The endogenous cyclic adenosine monophosphate (AMP) antagonist, cyclic PIP, has been identified as a prostaglandylinositol cyclic phosphate. It inhibits protein kinase A 100% and activates protein serine phosphatase about sevenfold. It is biosynthesized by an enzyme of the plasma membrane when the assay mixture contains adenosine triphosphate (ATP), Mg2+,(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder in which the nigro-striatal dopaminergic (DAergic) neurons have been selectively lost. Due to side effects of levodopa, a dopamine precursor drug, recently cell replacement therapy for PD has been considered. Lack of sufficient amounts of, embryos and ethical problems regarding the use of(More)
We consider radiative corrections to the masses of the Higgs bosons in a minimal supersymmetric model that contains an additional non-anomalous U (1) ′ gauge symmetry. With some fine tuning of the U (1) ′ charges of the Higgs fields, it is possible to suppress the Z–Z ′ mixing. We use this fact, along with the lower bound on the lightest Higgs mass after(More)
We present broadband imaging polarimetry of DR21 at 2.2µm. Background stars shining through the lobes of the bipolar outflow show polarization aligned with the long axis of the outflow, indicating a magnetic field geometry oriented along the flow axis. There is no indication of a spiral or turbulent magnetic field geometry in the lobes. The polarization of(More)
