Although glutamine synthesis has a major role in the control of acid-base balance and ammonia detoxification in the kidney of herbivorous species, very little is known about the regulation of this process. We therefore studied the influence of acetate, which is readily metabolized by the kidney and whose metabolism is accompanied by the production of(More)
The thermal Fischer indolization of hydrazones resulting from 4-hydrazino-5-methyl-1H-pyridin-2-one and various beta- and alpha-tetralones led to 4-methyl-6,7-dihydro-2H,5H-pyrido[4,3- b]benzo[e]indol-1-ones and 4-methyl-11-dihydro-2H,5H-pyrido[4,3- b]benzo[g]indol-1-ones, respectively. After aromatization, these compounds were transformed by phosphorus(More)
The metabolism of variously labeled [13C]- and [14C]glucoses, used at a physiological concentration (5 mM), has been studied in isolated rabbit kidney tubules both in the absence and the presence of NH4Cl. When present as sole exogenous substrate, glucose was metabolized at high rates and converted not only into CO2 and lactate but also, in contrast to a(More)
MTCP1 (for Mature-T-Cell Proliferation) is the first gene unequivocally identified in the group of uncommon leukemias with a mature phenotype. The three-dimensional solution structure of the human p8(MTCP1) protein encoded by the MTCP1 oncogene was determined by homonuclear proton two-dimensional NMR methods at 600 MHz. After sequence specific assignments,(More)
BACKGROUND Chromosome rearrangements are frequently involved in the generation of hematopoietic tumors. One type of T-cell leukemia, T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, is consistently associated with chromosome rearrangements characterized by the juxtaposition of the TCRA locus on chromosome 14q11 and either the TCL1 gene on 14q32.1 or the MTCP1 gene on Xq28.(More)
The human oncoprotein p13MTCP1 is coded by the MTCP1 gene, a gene involved in chromosomal translocations associated with T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, a rare form of human leukemia with a mature T-cell phenotype. The primary sequence of p13MTCP1 is highly and only homologous to that of p14TCL1, a product coded by the gene TCL1 which is also involved in(More)
Two related oncogenes, TCL1 and MTCP1, are overexpressed in certain T-cell prolymphocytic leukemias as a result of chromosomal rearrangements that involve the translocation of one T-cell receptor gene to either chromosome 14q32 or Xq28, respectively. The human oncoprotein p13MTCP1 is coded by the MTCP1 gene and its primary sequence is highly and only(More)
Multinuclear nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy was used to follow the metabolism and kinetics of 5-fluorouracil (5FU) after i.v. administration at a dose of 100 mg/kg on Wistar rats. 31P spectra allow one to determine both the energetic status and the pH of the tissues under investigation, while serial 19F spectra reveal the drug clearance. Analyses(More)
The fluorescence and absorption properties of a series of reduced flavoproteins have been measured and compared with the properties of suitable model compounds. Contrary to common belief, a number of reduced flavoproteins have been found to exhibit appreciable fluorescence emission with maxima in the range 500-530 nm. In keeping with common observation, the(More)
