The pharmacological properties of fatty acid amidohydrolase (FAAH) at different assay pH values were investigated using [(3)H]-anandamide ([(3)H]-AEA) as substrate in rat brain homogenates and in COS-1 [corrected] cells transfected with wild type and mutant FAAH. Rat brain hydrolysis of [(3)H]-AEA showed pH dependency with an optimum around pH 8-9. Between(More)
Thioredoxin (Trx) is a ubiquitous protein disulfide oxidoreductase with antioxidant, cytokine, and chemotactic properties. Previously, we showed that Trx, in synergy with interleukin 1 (IL-1), IL-2, IL-4, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), and CD40-ligation induced S-phase entry and mitosis in normal B cells and B-type chronic lymphocytic leukemia(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Drugs used clinically usually have a primary mechanism of action, but additional effects on other biological targets can contribute to their effects. A potentially useful additional target is the endocannabinoid metabolizing enzyme monoacylglycerol lipase (MGL). We have screened a range of drugs for inhibition of MGL and compared the(More)
It has been suggested that cell position regulates endodermal differentiation in mouse embryo inner cell masses and in aggregates of embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells. This hypothesis states that cells at the interface between the cell mass and blastocoel fluid or culture medium differentiate into endoderm, whereas internally located cells follow alternative(More)
Redox-regulation of receptors and transcription factors are important for lymphocyte activation, differentiation and apoptosis. Thioredoxin (Trx) is a key redox-regulating protein and oxidative stress sensor operating in synergy with Trx-reductase and protein disulfide isomerase (PDI). The expression of Trx, PDI, and the Trx-regulated transcription-factor(More) Updated information and services can be found at: (4217 articles) Neoplasia • Articles on similar topics can be found in the following Blood collections Information about reproducing this article in parts or(More)
