Sequence specific cleavage of RNA can be achieved by hammerhead ribozymes as well as DNAzymes. They comprise a catalytic core sequence flanked by regions that form double strands with complementary RNA. While different types of ribozymes have been discovered in natural organisms, DNAzymes derive from in vitro selection. Both have been used for therapeutic(More)
Diagnostic reagents for detection of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) exposure with improved reliability may be provided by viral encoded proteins produced by recombinant DNA techniques or by synthetic peptides corresponding to appropriate viral epitopes. We have expressed at high levels in E. coli a gag gene segment corresponding to approximately 97% of(More)
We have recently described the purification and characterization of an insulin-degrading enzyme (IDE) from Drosophila melanogaster that can cleave porcine insulin, is highly conserved through evolution and is developmentally regulated. We now report that the IDE is, in fact, an insulin EGF-binding protein (dpl00) that we had isolated previously from(More)
