Staurosporine, microbial alkaloid which has been known to have antifungal activity was found to inhibit markedly phospholipid/Ca++dependent protein kinase (protein kinase C) from rat brain, with an IC50 value of 2.7 nM. However, it had little effect on the binding of 3H-phorbol-12, 13-dibutyrate (PDBu) to protein kinase C. The inhibition of protein kinase C(More)
We purified DNase II from human liver to apparent homogeneity. The N-terminal amino acid sequences of each of three components constituting the purified mature enzyme were then separately determined by automatic Edman degradation. A combination of this chemical information and the previously reported nucleotide sequence of the cDNA encoding human DNase II(More)
Human APOE ϵ4 allele is a strong genetic risk factor of Alzheimer disease. Neuropathological and genetic studies suggested that apolipoprotein E4 (apoE4) protein facilitates deposition of amyloid β peptide (Aβ) in the brain, although the mechanism whereby apoE4 increases amyloid aggregates remains elusive. Here we show that injection of Aβ protofibrils(More)
