Phosphonoacetaldehyde hydrolase (phosphonatase) catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphonoacetaldehyde to acetaldehyde and inorganic phosphate. In this study, the genes encoding phosphonatase in Bacillus cereus and in Salmonella typhimurium were cloned for high-level expression in Escherichia coli. The kinetic properties of the purified, recombinant(More)
Phosphoenolpyruvate phosphomutase (PEP mutase) from Tetrahymena pyriformis catalyzes the rearrangement of phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to phosphonopyruvate (P-pyr). A spectrophotometric P-pyr assay consisting of the coupled actions of P-pyr decarboxylase, phosphonoacetaldehyde hydrolase, and alcohol dehydrogenase was devised to monitor mutase catalysis. The(More)
The enzyme phosphoenolpyruvate mutase was purified to homogeneity from the mollusk Mytilus edulis. The subunit size of the native homotetramer was determined to be 34,000 Da. The steady-state kinetic constants for catalysis of the conversion of phosphonopyruvate to phosphoenolpyruvate at pH 7.5 and 25 degrees C were measured at kcat = 34 s-1,(More)
Bangpungtongsung-san (BPTS), a traditional oriental herbal prescription, is widely used for expelling wind, draining heat, and providing general improvement to the immune system. In this study, we investigated the effects of BPTS on induction of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), proinflammatory cytokines, nuclear factor-kappa(More)
OBJECTIVE PG201 has been formulated using 12 herbs known to have anti-inflammatory and protective effects on damaged tissue and bone among other functions. The present study was done in order to assess the therapeutic effects of PG201 in collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) in mice. METHODS DBA/1 mice were immunized with bovine type II collagen. After a(More)
Bactericidal/permeability-increasing protein (BPI) had been shown to possess anti-inflammatory and endotoxin neutralizing activity by interacting with LPS of Gram-negative bacteria. The current study examines the feasibility of using murine BPI (mBPI) expressed on halophilic Archaeal gas vesicle nanoparticles (GVNPs) for the treatment of endotoxemia in(More)
We investigated the notion of " popularity " for machine-generated sentences. We defined a popular sentence as one that contains words that are frequently used, appear in many documents , and contain frequent dependencies. We measured the popularity of sentences based on three components: content morpheme count, document frequency, and dependency(More)
