We have shown previously that the regulatory subunit (RII) of a type II cAMP-dependent protein kinase is an integral component of the mammalian sperm flagellum (Horowitz, J.A., H. Toeg, and G.A. Orr. 1984. J. Biol. Chem. 259:832-838; Horowitz, J.A., W. Wasco, M. Leiser, and G.A. Orr. 1988. J. Biol. Chem. 263:2098-2104). The subcellular localization of this(More)
It has been shown that cAMP-dependent phosphorylation of a soluble sperm protein is important for the initiation of flagellar motion. The suggestion has been made that this motility initiation protein, named axokinin, is the major 56,000-dalton phosphoprotein present in both dog sperm and in other cells containing axokinin-like activity. Since the(More)
Demembranated rat sperm flagellar polypeptides capable of binding the regulatory subunit (RII) of a type II cAMP-dependent protein kinase, having apparent subunit molecular masses of 120, 80 and 57 kDa were identified by an RII overlay procedure [Horowitz, J. A., Wasco, W., Leiser, M. & Orr, G. A. (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 2098-2104]. In this study it is(More)
The focus of this study was to examine the functional role of the unusual peripheral substitution of heme A. The effects of heme A stereochemistry on the reconstitution of the porphyrin have been examined in the heme A-apo-myoglobin complex using optical absorption and resonance Raman and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopies. The addition of one(More)
We have shown previously that the regulatory subunit (RII) of a type II cyclic AMP (cAMP)-dependent protein kinase is tightly associated with mammalian sperm flagella (J. A. Horowitz et al. (1984) J. Biol. Chem. 259, 832-838; J. A. Horowitz et al. (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 2098-2104). In the present study the flagellar RII was compared to other(More)
This paper describes a system that helps HCI practitioners and researchers manage and conduct experiments involving context-sensitive handheld applications, particularly related to navigation assistance. The system provides a software framework in which application, user interface and interaction monitoring components can be plugged, offering a simple(More)
