The Occurrence of Three Isoforms of Heparan Sulfate 6-O-Sulfotransferase Having Different Specificities for Hexuronic Acid Adjacent to the TargetedN-Sulfoglucosamine*
We previously cloned heparan sulfate 6-O-sulfotransferase (HS6ST) (Habuchi, H., Kobayashi, M., and Kimata, K. (1998) J. Biol. Chem. 273, 9208–9213). In this study, we report the cloning andExpand

Bonding of dual-cured resin cement to zirconia ceramic using phosphate acid ester monomer and zirconate coupler.
This study evaluated the shear bond strength between dual-cured resin luting cement and pure zirconium (99.9%) and industrially manufactured yttrium-oxide-partially-stabilized zirconia ceramic, andExpand

The fusing ability of sperm is bestowed by CD9-containing vesicles released from eggs in mice
Membrane fusion is an essential step in the encounter of two nuclei from sex cells—sperm and egg—in fertilization. However, aside from the involvement of two molecules, CD9 and Izumo, the mechanismExpand

Domain Structure of Heparan Sulfates from Bovine Organs*
Samples of heparan sulfate, isolated from bovine aorta, lung, intestine, and kidney, were degraded by digestion with a mixture of heparitinases or by treatment with nitrous acid, with or withoutExpand

Effects of alumina-blasting and adhesive primers on bonding between resin luting agent and zirconia ceramics.
This study evaluated the effect of alumina-blasting and three commercial adhesive primers on the shear bond strength of a dual-cured resin luting agent to zirconia ceramics. Two different-sizedExpand

Heparan Sulfate d-Glucosaminyl 3-O-Sulfotransferase-3A SulfatesN-Unsubstituted Glucosamine Residues*
3-O-Sulfation of glucosamine by heparan sulfate d-glucosaminyl 3-O-sulfotransferase (3-OST-1) is the key modification in anticoagulant heparan sulfate synthesis. However, the heparan sulfatesExpand

A dioxin sensitive gene, mammalian WAPL, is implicated in spermatogenesis
2,3,7,8‐Tetrachlorodibenzo‐p‐dioxin (TCDD) is an endocrine disruptor that produces a variety of toxic effects. We have isolated a mouse homolog of the hWAPL gene, termed mouse WAPL (mWAPL), as aExpand

Tetrasulfated Disaccharide Unit in Heparan Sulfate
We previously reported that the heparan sulfate 3-O-sulfotransferase (3OST)-5 produces a novel component of heparan sulfate, i.e. the tetrasulfated disaccharide (Di-tetraS) unit ( Mochizuki, H.,Expand

Tetraspanin family protein CD9 in the mouse sperm: unique localization, appearance, behavior and fate during fertilization
A tetraspanin family protein, CD9, has not previously been identified in sperm cells. Here, we characterize sperm CD9 in the mouse, including its unique localization in sperm, appearance duringExpand
