Identification of the phosphorylation site for cAMP-dependent protein kinase on Na+,K(+)-ATPase and effects of site-directed mutagenesis.
Phosphorylation of purified Na+,K(+)-ATPase by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (protein kinase A) decreases the activity of this enzyme. We have now shown, using several experimental approaches, that aExpand
SDR and MDR: completed genome sequences show these protein families to be large, of old origin, and of complex nature
Short‐chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) and medium‐chain dehydrogenases/reductases (MDR) are protein families originally distinguished from characterisations of alcohol dehydrogenase of these twoExpand
An ethanol-inducible MDR ethanol dehydrogenase/acetaldehyde reductase in Escherichia coli: structural and enzymatic relationships to the eukaryotic protein forms.
An ethanol-active medium-chain dehydrogenase/reductase (MDR) alcohol dehydrogenase was isolated and characterized from Escherichia coli. It is distinct from the fermentative alcohol dehydrogenase andExpand
Nomenclature of alcohol dehydrogenases.
Six different classes of mammalian alcohol dehydrogenase have been characterized. Most, if not all, are common to humans, mammals and many vertebrates, which therefore share class distinctions inExpand
Mutation of Arg-115 of human class III alcohol dehydrogenase: a binding site required for formaldehyde dehydrogenase activity and fatty acid activation.
The origin of the fatty acid activation and formaldehyde dehydrogenase activity that distinguishes human class III alcohol dehydrogenase (alcohol:NAD+ oxidoreductase, EC from all otherExpand
Molecular cloning and amino acid sequence of human 5-lipoxygenase.
5-Lipoxygenase (EC, a Ca2+-and ATP-requiring enzyme, catalyzes the first two steps in the biosynthesis of the peptidoleukotrienes and the chemotactic factor leukotriene B4. A cDNA cloneExpand
The gamma 1 and gamma 2 subunits of human liver alcohol dehydrogenase. cDNA structures, two amino acid replacements, and compatibility with changes in the enzymatic properties.
cDNA clones corresponding to two alleles of the ADH3 locus were identified by hybridization with synthetic oligodeoxyribonucleotides specific for class I human liver alcohol dehydrogenase. SequencesExpand
Distribution of alcohol and sorbitol dehydrogenases. Assessment of mRNA species in mammalian tissues.
The tissue distribution of mRNA of alcohol dehydrogenases of classes I, II and III, and sorbitol dehydrogenase, was studied. mRNA from 19 different rat tissues was purified and analyzed by NorthernExpand
Mammalian alcohol dehydrogenases of separate classes: intermediates between different enzymes and intraclass isozymes.
A comparison of the structure of class II human liver alcohol dehydrogenase (alcohol:NAD+ oxidoreductase, EC (containing pi subunits) with those of the human class I isozymes (containingExpand
Sorbitol dehydrogenase: cDNA coding for the rat enzyme. Variations within the alcohol dehydrogenase family independent of quaternary structure and metal content.
Two separate cDNA-clones, together coding for rat sorbitol dehydrogenase, have been isolated from a liver cDNA library in lambda gt11 by screening with oligonucleotide probes. One clone contained aExpand
