BG60 is an important allergen of Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon) pollen, which causes allergic responses in human. It was suggested that its carbohydrate moiety may be relevant to allergic reaction (Su, S. N., Lau, G. X., Shu, P., Yang, S. Y., Huang, S. W., and Lee, Y. C. (1996) J. Allergy Clin. Immunol., in press). Therefore, the structure of the(More)
Single-spin asymmetries for semi-inclusive electroproduction of charged pions in deep-inelastic scattering of positrons are measured for the first time with transverse target polarization. The asymmetry depends on the azimuthal angles of both the pion (phi) and the target spin axis (phi(S)) about the virtual-photon direction and relative to the lepton(More)
The HERMES hydrogen and deuterium nuclear-polarized gas targets have been in use since 1996 with the polarized electron beam of HERA at DESY to study the spin structure of the nucleon. Polarized atoms from a Stern-Gerlach Atomic Beam Source are injected into a storage cell internal to the HERA electron ring. Atoms diffusing from the center of the storage(More)
Because of the deleterious effects of toxic oxygen species, all aerobic and many anaerobic organisms have evolved an active oxygen-detoxifying system driven by several enzymes. Among them, a metalloenzyme, superoxide dismutase (SOD; superoxide:superoxide oxidoreductase, EC 1.15. 1.1) is initially functioning in the system by catalyzing the dismutation of(More)
Calcium hopantenate (HOPA) has been widely used as an activator of cerebral metabolism in Japan. However, several cases of acute encephalopathy during HOPA administration were recently reported, which were characterized by marked metabolic acidosis and hypoglycemia. The encephalopathy in these patients was named Reye-like syndrome because of the similarity(More)
A rare case of reversible hemiballism due to putaminal pathological process in a 51-year-old woman is described. She was hospitalized for evaluation of hemiballism and muscle weakness on the left side. A cranial computed tomography scan demonstrated a high density lesion in the right putamen with enhancement on delayed scan. Angiographic examination(More)
We have isolated and determined the nucleotide sequence of the structural gene (sodB) coding for one of the copper/zinc-superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn-SOD) isozymes from rice plants (Oryza sativa L.). The sodB gene is split into 8 exons spread about 2 kb of the chromosomal DNA, with the coding sequence beginning in the 2nd and ending in the 8th. Although none(More)
Double-spin asymmetries of semiinclusive cross sections for the production of identified pions and kaons have been measured in deep inelastic scattering of polarized positrons on a polarized deuterium target. Five helicity distributions including those for three sea quark flavors were extracted from these data together with reanalyzed previous data for(More)
