Effect of n-3 and n-6 fatty acids in broodstock diet on reproduction and fatty acid composition of broodstock and eggs in the Japanese eel Anguilla japonica
Abstract This study investigated the effect of n-3 to n-6 fatty acid ratios in broodstock diets on reproduction and fatty acid composition of broodstock and eggs of the Japanese eel. Broodstock wereExpand

Purification, subunit structure, and partial amino acid sequence of metapyrocatechase.
Crystalline metapyrocatechase with a specific activity of about 320 pmol/min/mg of protein was obtained from an extract of Pseudomonasputida mt-2 grown in a medium containing meat extract, peptone,Expand

Three conserved glycine residues in valine activation of gramicidin S synthetase 2 from Bacillus brevis.
The translated product from the gene fragment containing the second and third domains of gramicidin S synthetase 2 was purified to an essentially homogeneous state. It showed valine- andExpand

Isolation of Human Renin Inhibitor from Soybean: Soyasaponin I Is the Novel Human Renin Inhibitor in Soybean
We found human renin inhibitory activity in soybean and isolated the active compound, soybean renin inhibitor (SRI). The physico-chemical data on the isolated SRI were identical with those ofExpand

Effects of nucleotides on N-acetyl-d-glucosamine 2-epimerases (renin-binding proteins): comparative biochemical studies.
Renin-binding protein (RnBP) is an endogenous renin inhibitor originally isolated from porcine kidney as a complex of renin, so-called high molecular weight (HMW) renin. Our recent studiesExpand

Effect of single base substitutions at glycine-870 codon of gramicidin S synthetase 2 gene on proline activation.
The mutant gene coding for a proline-activating domain (grs2-pro) was cloned and sequenced from Bacillus brevis Nagano, BII-3 strain, which produces gramicidin S synthetase 2 defective inExpand

Purification and properties of branched chain amino acid aminotransferase from gramicidin S-producing Bacillus brevis.
The branched chain amino acid aminotransferase [EC] was purified to a homogeneous state from a gramicidin S-producing strain of Bacillus brevis. The enzyme had a molecular weight of aboutExpand

Inhibition of ionotropic neurotransmitter receptors by antagonists: strategy to estimate the association and the dissociation rate constant of antagonists with very strong affinity to the receptors.
Since binding of an agonist to an ionotropic neurotransmitter receptor causes not only channel opening, but also desensitization of the receptor, inhibition of the receptor by the antagonistExpand

Actin-actin contact: inhibition of actin-polymerization by subdomain 4 peptide fragments.
F-Actin was digested with alpha-chymotrypsin in 6 M urea, and two peptide fragments from subdomain 4 of actin molecule [Kabsch, W., Mannherz, H.G., Suck, D., Pai, E.F., & Holmes K.C. (1990) NatureExpand
