The proteins present in the thylakoid lumen of higher plant chloroplasts have not been rigorously examined. In this communication we present a simple and rapid procedure for the isolation of the soluble proteins and extrinsic membrane proteins present in the thylakoid lumen from spinach. Our procedure involves extensive washing of the thylakoid membranes(More)
Several recent reports (8, 10, 11, 13) have established the biological and molecular genetic similarity between the endogenous AKV virus of strain AKR, and an N-ecotropic endogenous virus found in the genome of feral Japanese mice, Mus musculus molossinus. The similarities are so striking as to suggest a common origin of these viruses, which are present in(More)
The genetic control of the cytotoxic T-cell response to the male histocompatibility antigen, H-Y, was analyzed in BALB/cKe(C) and SJL/J(J) which are both nonresponders. However, the (C X J)F1 hybrid is a responder. Therefore, two dominant complementing genes are involved. Analysis of a set of (C X J) recombinant inbred (RI) lines reveals that these two(More)
This review addresses the use of Norplant in women with or at-risk for noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Background information on NIDDM is given, including pathogenesis, effect on glucose and lipid metabolism, and management. The effect of exogenous estrogen and progestogens on glucose tolerance is briefly discussed. In reviewing the effects(More)
