Vacuolar proton-translocating ATPase (holoATPase and free membrane sector) was isolated from bovine chromaffin granules by blue native polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. A 5-fold excess of membrane sector over holoenzyme was determined in isolated chromaffin granule membranes. M9.2, a novel extremely hydrophobic 9.2-kDa protein comprising 80 amino acids,(More)
but it could not have been accomplished without the guidance, support, and input of the workshop participants and additional contributors that assisted with the development and review of this plan. Contributors included graciously provided access to unpublished data. List of Tables Table 1. Most recent estimates of Laysan and black-footed albatross nesting(More)
Glycoprotein IV of bovine adrenal chromaffin granule membranes was purified by membrane fractionation with Triton X-114 and lectin affinity chromatography. An antiserum raised against this protein recognized the same component as one directed against subunit Ac45 of the proton-translocating adenosine triphosphatase in the granule membrane.

The phlogistic actions of six molecular species of platelet-activating factor (PAF) (1-O-alkyl-PAF homologs, 16:0-, 18:0- and 18:1-alkyl-PAF, 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (AGEPC) and their respective 1-acyl-PAF analog counterparts, 16:0-, 18:0- and 18:1-acyl-PAF, 1-acyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (AGPC)) were assessed relative to(More)
Human neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) stimulated with N'-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP) in the presence of cytochalasin B but in the absence of human serum albumin (HSA) synthesized only small amounts of platelet-activating factor (PAF) that attained maximum levels within 60-120 s after stimulation; in addition, no release of(More)
The molecular heterogeneity of platelet-activating factor (PAF) produced by stimulated human neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) was assessed by both normal and reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). As detected by rabbit platelet stimulation, at least 5 PAF molecules were separated by HPLC. Fast atom bombardment (FAB) mass(More)
Fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry was used to identify molecular species of platelet-activating factor (PAF) produced by stimulated human neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes. Normal and reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography were employed to separate the individual regions with PAF activity prior to mass spectrometric analysis. The(More)
Silica and C18 reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) were used to fractionate synthetic molecular species of 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (AGEPC) and semi-synthetic platelet-activating factor (PAF) synthesized from beef heart plasmalogens. A single coincident peak from silica HPLC was observed for either a mixture of(More)
