Molecular defects in erythroid 5-aminolevulinate synthase (ALAS-E), the first enzyme in the heme biosynthetic pathway, cause X-linked sideroblastic anemia (XLSA). However, ring sideroblasts, the hallmark of XLSA, were not found in ALAS-E-deficient mouse embryos, indicating that simple ALAS-E-deficiency is not sufficient for ring sideroblast formation. To(More)
BACKGROUND Identification of the target proteins of bioactive compounds is critical for elucidating the mode of action; however, target identification has been difficult in general, mostly due to the low sensitivity of detection using affinity chromatography followed by CBB staining and MS/MS analysis. RESULTS We applied our protocol of predicting target(More)
