Purification and characterization of an anti-H(O) phytohemagglutinin of Ulex europeus.
Two anti-H(O) phytohemagglutinins have been separated by (NH4)2SO4 fractionation of extracts of Ulex europeus seeds. One was found to be inhibited by L-fucose and the other was inhibited most byExpand

Purification and properties of long-chain acyl-CoA hydrolases from the liver cytosol of rats treated with peroxisome proliferator.
Two long-chain acyl-CoA hydrolases, referred to as ACH1 and ACH2, were purified from the liver cytosol of rats fed a diet containing di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, a peroxisome proliferator. TheExpand

Molecular Basis for Recognition of an Arthritic Peptide and a Foreign Epitope on Distinct MHC Molecules by a Single TCR1
KRN TCR transgenic T cells recognize two self-MHC molecules: a foreign peptide, bovine RNase 42–56, on I-Ak and an autoantigen, glucose-6-phosphate isomerase 282–294, on I-Ag7. Because the latterExpand

Carbohydrate-binding specificity of silkworm lectin.
The binding specificity of a lectin from the hemolymph of silkworm larvae was examined quantitatively by taking advantage of the fluorospectrophotometric properties of the lectin. On excitation atExpand

Vitronectin diversity in evolution but uniformity in ligand binding and size of the core polypeptide.
We isolated vitronectins from the plasma or sera of 14 animal species including mouse and rat by heparin affinity chromatography. They cross-reacted with anti-vitronectin antibody and their aminoExpand

Characterization of the ligand binding activities of vitronectin: interaction of vitronectin with lipids and identification of the binding domains for various ligands using recombinant domains.
Vitronectin is a multifunctional plasma glycoprotein which may regulate the systems related to protease cascades such as the coagulation, fibrinolysis, and complement systems as well as cellExpand

Differential expression of the keratin-4, -13, -14, -17 and transglutaminase 3 genes during the development of oral squamous cell carcinoma from leukoplakia.
To identify differentially expressed genes during the development of oral malignancy, differential display, northern blotting, reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) andExpand

The plant aspartic proteinase-specific polypeptide insert is not directly related to the activity of oryzasin 1.
Many plant aspartic proteinases (APs) are different from animal and microbial APs in that they contain a polypeptide insert, approximately 100 amino acids in length, in the C-terminal region. ToExpand
