Effects of nine synthetic putative metabolites of primaquine on activity of the hexose monophosphate shunt in intact human red blood cells in vitro.
Suspensions of washed human red blood cells were treated with nine synthetic putative metabolic derivatives of primaquine (PQ'), and their individual effects on activity of the hexose monophosphateExpand

Enhanced plasma persistence of therapeutic enzymes by coupling to soluble dextran.
Conjugation of carboxypeptidase G and arginase, two enzymes of therapeutic interest, to a soluble dextran significantly enhanced plasma persistence in normal and tumour-bearing mice. A prolongedExpand

An in vitro micro-volume procedure for rapid measurement of erythrocytic hexose monophosphate shunt activity.
A radiometric micro-volume procedure for measurement of erythrocytic hexose monophosphate shunt (HMS) activity in intact cells in vitro is described. The procedure is rapid, allowing 200 individualExpand
