Three mutants of Escherichia coli B which are defective in components of the transport system for uridine and uracil were isolated and utilized to study the mechanism of uridine transport. Mutant U-Expand
Deoxycytidine transport in the presence of a cytidine deaminase inhibitor and the transport of uracil in Escherichia coli B.
Tetrahydrouridine, a cytidine deaminase inhibitor, prevents periplasmic degradation of deoxycytidine by Escherichia coli B. It does not inhibit deoxycytidine transport and therefore allows anExpand
A new deoxycytidine analog, 5-hydroxy-2'-deoxycytidine.
Abstract 5-Hydroxy-2′-deoxycytidine was synthesized as a new compound. It inhibits growth of E. coli only after deamination to 5-hydroxy-2′-deoxyuridine. 5-Hydroxy-2′-deoxycytidine is a moreExpand
Characteristics of deoxythmidine transport and deoxythymidine kinase in 3T3 cells.
Abstract The structural requirements for deoxythymidine transport are specific. Structural alteration of deoxythymidine at the 2′- and 5′-positions results in compounds which do not compete forExpand
Modifications of β-glucuronidase as a reporter gene for protein sorting in saccharomyces cerevisiae
Several carboxypeptidase Y-/3-glucuronidase (CPY-GUS) plasmids were expressed in yeast. The CPY-GUS fusion proteins were inactivated during passage through the secretory pathway. This work was doneExpand
