Collagenase cleavage of human Type II and III collagens has been studied using a highly purified preparation of rabbit tumor collagenase. Progress of the reactions in solution was followed by viscometry and the results indicated that under the conditions employed Type III collagen molecules were cleaved at approximately five times the rate of Type II(More)
1 A breathalyser has been used to measure blood alcohol levels at short intervals to produce an absorption curve which we have shown is reproducible. 2 Changes in the rate of absorption which reflect changes in gastric emptying times produced by metoclopromide and propantheline have been demonstrated. 3 The breathalyser technique described appears to offer(More)
The covalent structure of the first 111 residues from the N-terminus of peptide alpha1(II)-CB10 from bovine nasal-cartilage collagen is presented. This region comprises residues 552-661 of the alpha1(II) chain. The sequence was determined by automated Edman degradation of peptide alpha1(II)-CB10 and of peptides produced by cleavage with trypsin and(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa grown in a chemostat under carbon- and magnesium-limited conditions showed varying resistance to killing by rabbit peritoneal exudate polymorphonuclear leukocytes. Slow-growing (D = 0.05 h-1), magnesium-limited cells were significantly more resistant to the lethal effects of the phagocytes than were fast-growing magnesium-limited(More)
During studies on the amino acid sequence of bovine nasal cartilage collagen, the cyanogen bromide peptide alpha1(II)-CB11 was degraded to smaller peptides with trypsin. One of the tryptic peptides, T5, which contained 39 residues was shown by amino acid and sequence analyses to occur in a predominant form that contained glutamine at position 5 and in a(More)
The amino acid sequence of 162 residues from the NH2-terminal region of bovine alpha 1 (II) is reported. Automated sequence analysis of chains from pepsin-treated type II collagen indicated the sequence and order of two CNBr peptides, alpha 1 (II)-CB2 and alpha 1 (II)-CB3, at the beginning of the repetitive triplet sequence of alpha 1 (II). The sequences of(More)
