The transmembrane orientation of the human erythrocyte glucose transporter was assessed based on polarized Fourier transform infrared and ultraviolet circular dichroism spectroscopic data obtained from oriented multilamellar films of the reconstituted transporter vesicles. Infrared spectra revealed that there are distinct vibrations for alpha-helical(More)
Hydrogen exchange kinetic behavior of human erythrocyte glucose transporter protein in vesicles was studied in the absence and in the presence of D-glucose or a well known inhibitor, cytochalasin B. This is to detect a proposed channel of water penetrating into the protein through which the sugar molecule passes and to monitor any conformational changes(More)
Chemical and functional purity of the human erythrocyte glucose transporter preparation obtained by DEAE column chromatography after octyl glucoside solubilization was assessed. The cytochalasin B binding capacity of the preparation indicates that the preparation is 60-85% functional glucose transporter. Gel filtration chromatography on TSK 250 column(More)
Hybridoma technology has been used successfully to generate monoclonal-antibody probes against protoplast membrane antigens. Hybridomas secreting monoclonal antibodies that either inhibit or stimulate a putative plasma-membrane marker enzyme, (K+ + Mg2+)-stimulated pH 6.5 ATPase, have been identified and cloned. The specificity of monoclonal-antibody probes(More)
We have made antigen-specific cytotoxic reagents by conjugating the chimeric antibody BR96 (chiBR96) to Pseudomonas exotoxin A (PE), as either native PE or a truncated form (LysPE40) devoid of the cell-recognition region (domain I). PE kills cells by ADP-ribosylation of elongation factor 2, thereby inhibiting protein synthesis. Chimeric BR96 immunotoxins(More)
The secondary structural compositions of the human erythrocyte glucose transporter in proteoliposome vesicles were assessed on the basis of circular dichroism (CD) spectra measured in the absence and in the presence of D-glucose or an inhibitor, cytochalasin B. We designed and used a scattered-light-collecting device, which corrects CD spectra for optical(More)
The effects of pH on the intrinsic fluorescence of purified human erythrocyte glucose transporter (HEGT) were studied to deduce the structure and the ligand-induced dynamics of this protein. D-Glucose increases tryptophan fluorescence of HEGT at a 320-nm peak with a concomitant reduction in a 350-nm peak, suggesting that glucose shifts a tryptophan residue(More)
Multiple clinical, business and operational use cases from Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems has resulted in the availability of large quantities of longitudinal data. The secondary use of these data for research provides opportunities to generate insights that can help shape the design and delivery of health care services. Methods that allow the(More)
