AIM To explore the possible role of p21, cyclin E and cyclin-dependent kinase 2 (CDK2) in the protection of ginsenoside Rg1 against tert-butylhydroperoxide (t-BHP)-induced senescence in WI-38 cells. METHODS The cellular ultrastructure, cytometric assay and beta-galactosidase (beta-gal) cytochemistry staining were used to evaluate cell senescence. The(More)
Tet(L) and Tet(K) are specific antibiotic-resistance determinants. They catalyze efflux of a tetracycline(Tc)-divalent metal complex in exchange for protons, as do other Tet efflux proteins. These Tet proteins also catalyze Na+ and K+ exchange for protons. Each of the "cytoplasmic substrates", Na+, K+ and the Tc-metal ion complex, can also be exchanged for(More)
Transposon insertions that stabilize the beta-galactosidase activity of a HemA-LacZ hybrid protein following carbon starvation were mapped to the atp operon of Salmonella typhimurium. This effect is similar to that seen with nuo mutants defective in the energy-conserving type I NADH dehydrogenase. Insertions in several other genes, including such highly(More)
A "Tet(L)-12" version of Tet(L), a tetracycline efflux protein with 14 transmembrane segments (TMS), was constructed by deletion of two central TMS. Tet(L)-12 catalyzed Na+/H+ antiport and antiport with K+ as a coupling ion as well as or better than wild-type Tet(L) but exhibited no tetracycline-Me2+/H+ antiport in Escherichia coli vesicles.
