The properties of the acyl-CoA:sn-glycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase in a 20,000g particulate fraction from maturing safflower seeds were investigated. The optimum pH of the reaction was 7.2. The apparent Km for glycerophosphate was 0.54 mM. Only monoacylglycerophosphate was accumulated in the particulate fraction under normal conditions. Position 1 of(More)
A 20,000 X g particulate preparation isolated from maturing safflower seeds catalyzed the acylation of 1-acyl-sn-glycerol 3-phosphate with acyl-CoA to form phosphatidate. The specific activity of the reaction exceeded 200 nmol min-1 mg protein-1. Although this preparation was also capable of catalyzing the acylation of sn-glycerol 3-phosphate with acyl-CoA,(More)
A total of 10,550 'normal' adults (8450 men and 2100 women) in the general population were screened by a paired assay method for serum PRL and 40 subjects with hyperprolactinaemia (greater than 75 micrograms/l) were detected. Of these, five patients (three men and two women) with pituitary prolactinoma, one man with empty sella syndrome, 10 cases of 'big'(More)
A full-length cDNA clone (RASC8) encoding glutaredoxin (thioltransferase) was isolated from a cDNA library of an aleurone layer prepared from a developing seed of rice (Oryza sativa L.). RASC8, 568bp in length, contained an ATG codon and two possible polyadenylation signals, and encoded 112 amino acid residues. Cys-Pro-Phe-Cys, which is the active site and(More)
CONTEXT Recent studies have demonstrated the potential cost-effectiveness of using 2-fluoro-2-D-[(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) in the management of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), but because of differences in health-care systems, those findings may not hold true in a Japanese hospital. OBJECTIVE To assess the(More)
This paper proposes an evaluation result of a high security distribution and rake technology for realizing disaster recovery. In an experimental evaluation, the encryption and spatial scrambling performance and the average response time have been estimated in terms of the file data size. Discussion is also provided on an effective shuffling algorithm to(More)
We have isolated a cDNA clone for a P-450, designated P-450ib (Ichihara, K., Kusunose, E., Kaku, M., Yamamoto, S., and Kusunose, M. (1985) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 831, 99-105), from a cDNA library of rabbit small intestine mucosa by using synthetic DNA fragment by the polymerase chain reaction, as a hybridization probe. The cDNA with a 1,829-base pair insert(More)
We have reported that fatty-acid alpha-hydroxylase partially purified from Sphingomonas paucimobilis required NADH and molecular oxygen. In this study, we found that the reaction was greatly inhibited by catalase. Glutathione and glutathione peroxidase also inhibited alpha-hydroxylation, but superoxide dismutase and mannitol did not. Replacement of NADH and(More)
In the nonischemic canine left ventricle, levels of glycogen, glucose-6-phosphate (G6P), and lactate, and phosphorylase activity in the endocardial layers were higher than those in the epicardial layers, but the phosphocreatine (PCr) level in the endocardial layers was lower than that in the epicardial layers, and there were no differences in the adenosine(More)
