Dual role of the carboxyl-terminal region of pig liver L-kynurenine 3-monooxygenase: mitochondrial-targeting signal and enzymatic activity.
l-kynurenine 3-monooxygenase (KMO) is an NAD(P)H-dependent flavin monooxygenase that catalyses the hydroxylation of l-kynurenine to 3-hydroxykynurenine, and is localized as an oligomer in theExpand

Change in expression of GBP28/adiponectin in carbon tetrachloride-administrated mouse liver.
GBP28 (gelatin-binding protein of 28 kDa)/adiponectin is an adipocyte-producing plasma protein proposed to interact with the extracellular matrix. To examine the production of GBP28 in non-adiposeExpand

Regulation mechanism of the serine protease activity of plasma hyaluronan binding protein.
The inhibitor for the serine protease activity of plasma hyaluronan binding protein (PHBP) was purified from human plasma by polyethylene glycol (PEG) fractionation, diethylaminoethyl (DEAE)-SephacelExpand

Identification of the substrates for plasma hyaluronan binding protein.
Plasma hyaluronan biding protein (PHBP) is a novel serine protease, which has an amino acid sequence homology to that of hepatocyte growth factor activator (HGFA), and has a similar domain structureExpand

Kynurenine concentration of serum was increased by exercise.
Kynurenine pathway of tryptophan makes a lot of physiological active substances, such as quinolinate, NAD and so on, suggesting that kynurenine itself may play a very important role physiologically.Expand

Hepatic injury-specific conversion of mouse plasma hyaluronan binding protein to the active hetero-dimer form.
Plasma hyaluronan binding protein (PHBP) is produced only in liver and kidney in mouse. The induction of PHBP mRNA and the conversion of pro PHBP to the active hetero-dimer form were studied afterExpand
