NB-2 is one of the neural recognition molecules in the contactin subgroup, which belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. In rat, the six molecules in this subgroup that have been reported to date are contactin, TAG-1, BIG-1, BIG-2, NB-2, and NB-3. We have isolated cDNAs encoding the two splicing isoforms of human NB-2. The long isoform of human NB-2(More)
A new lysyl endopeptidase producing strain, Lysobacter sp. IB-9374, was isolated from soil. This strain secreted the endopeptidase to culture medium at 6-12-fold higher levels relative to Achromobacter lyticus and Lysobacter enzymogenes. The mature Lysobacter sp. enzyme was enzymatically identical to Achromobacter lysyl endopeptidase bearing lysyl bond(More)
The biological function of histone deacetylases (HDACs), namely, repression of gene expression by removing an acetyl group from a histone N-terminal tail, plays an important role in numerous biological processes such as cell cycle, differentiation, and apoptosis in the development of individual tissues, including the brain. We previously showed the possible(More)
