A method, called "protein blotting," for the detection of DNA-binding proteins is described. Proteins are separated on an SDA-polyacrylamide gel. The gel is sandwiched between 2 nitrocellulose filters and the proteins allowed to diffuse out of the gel and onto the filters. The proteins are tightly bound to each filter, producing a replica of the original(More)
1. The incorporation of [2-(14)C]uridine into nucleic acids of bone cells was studied in rat and pig trabecular-bone fragments surviving in vitro. 2. The rapid uptake of uridine into trichloroacetic acid-soluble material, and its subsequent incorporation into a crude nucleic acid fraction of bone or purified RNA extracted from isolated bone cells, was(More)
A unique permeabilized adipocyte model is described in which vigorous intracellular intermediary metabolism is preserved through both the pentose and glycolytic-Krebs pathways following saponin-induced pore formation in plasma membranes. Upon addition of appropriate cofactors, the cells metabolize both glucose and glucose 6-phosphate at rates which are(More)
SUMMARY Collagen turnover was studied in mouse fibroblast cultures (3T6) by radioactive labelling and compartmental analyses. The incorporation of [ 14 C]proline into protein during continuous labelling rapidly reached a maximum value which was directly proportional to the medium specific activity. Radioactivity appeared more slowly in hydroxyproline, and(More)
Protein adsorption is the first event which occurs when polymer surfaces are exposed to blood. The adsorption of proteins modifies the surface properties of the substrates and therefore influences subsequent cell-surface interactions. In an attempt to elucidate the fundamental mechanisms governing cell-proteinated-surface interactions, the extent of fresh(More)
