Characterization of Neutral Lipase BT-1 Isolated from the Labial Gland of Bombus terrestris Males
The highest lipase gene expression level was observed in freshly emerged bumblebees, and both gene expression and lipase activity were lower in bumblebee older than 3 days, the first report describing neutral lipase from the labial gland of B. terrestris. Expand
Separation of outer and inner membranes of mitochondria from the brown adipose tissue of infant rats.
Optimum conditions for the separation of outer and inner membranes from brown adipose tissue mitochondria are described and a large proportion of mitoplasts retained the orthodox configuration under these conditions. Expand
Molecular Mechanism of the Two-Component Suicidal Weapon of Neocapritermes taracua Old Workers.
This work identifies both components of this activated defense system and describes the molecular basis responsible for the toxicity of N. taracua worker autothysis, a sticky and toxic cocktail harmful to opponents. Expand
Metabolomic and transcriptomic data on major metabolic/biosynthetic pathways in workers and soldiers of the termite Prorhinotermes simplex (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) and chemical synthesis of
A metabolomics and transcriptomic data of the Prorhinotermes simplex termite workers and soldiers is provided to extend the poor knowledge of arthropod metabolome and transcriptome and would be useful for comparative study in termites or other arthropods. Expand
Ghrelin variants influence development of body mass index and plasma levels of total cholesterol in dialyzed patients
Common ghrelin variants may have an effect on changes in biochemical and anthropometric parameters in hemodialyzed patients over time and could be used in the future to plan individualized therapy. Expand
Differences in hydrolytic abilities of two crude lipases from Geotrichum candidum 4013
The fungus Geotrichum candidum 4013 produces two types of lipases (extracellular and cell‐bound). Both enzymes were tested for their hydrolytic ability to p‐nitrophenyl esters and compounds having aExpand
Highly selective purification of three lipases from Geotrichum candidum 4013 and their characterization and biotechnological applications
Abstract Simple purification steps were used to purify two lipases (Lip1 and Lip2) and one novel lipase (Lip3) produced by Geotrichum candidum 4013. The octyl-Sepharose at low ionic strength was usedExpand
Lipases as Tools in the Synthesis of Prodrugs from Racemic 9-(2,3-Dihydroxypropyl)adenine
Lipase from Candida antarctica was found to be the most efficient enzyme regarding chemical yield of the desired products, while transesterification by lipase from Aspergillus niger resulted in lower yields. Expand
