The human Na+/I- symporter (hNIS) is the plasma membrane protein that mediates active iodide uptake into several tissues, such as the thyroid and salivary glands. To study the distribution and cellular localization of the hNIS protein, we have generated a polyclonal antibody that could detect the hNIS protein by immunohistochemical staining on tissue(More)
The iodide concentrating activity of the thyroid gland is essential to the production of thyroid hormone and also provides a mechanism for the treatment of thyroid cancer by radioiodine ablation. We report here the nucleotide and amino acid sequence of the human sodium iodide symporter (hNIS), which mediates the iodide uptake activity in the thyroid gland.(More)
The active iodide uptake of the thyroid gland in humans is mediated by the human sodium iodide symporter (hNIS). In this report, we show that hNIS expression was detected primarily in thyroid tissue, but also in breast, colon, and ovary tissues. Expression of hNIS is greatly reduced in thyroid tumors compared to normal thyroid tissue. Among tumor tissues,(More)
The Na+/I- symporter (NIS) is the plasma membrane protein that mediates active iodide uptake into thyroid follicular cells. To understand the molecular mechanisms of human NIS (hNIS) gene regulation, the 2-kb immediate 5'-flanking region of hNIS was characterized. The tentative hNIS transcriptional start site was mapped to -375 nucleotide relative to the(More)
The sodium iodide symporter (NIS) is the plasma membrane protein that mediates active iodide uptake into thyroid follicular cells. To investigate whether human NIS (hNIS) mRNA levels in papillary thyroid carcinomas (PCs) correlate with the ability of tumors to concentrate radioiodide, we developed a reverse transcription-competitive polymerase chain(More)
The Na+/I- symporter is the molecule that mediates active iodide uptake in the thyroid gland. A 16.4 kb genomic DNA fragment of the rat Na+/I- symporter gene (rNIS) was isolated, restriction mapped and a 2 kb region immediate 5' to the ATG site was sequenced. The transcription start site for rNIS was mapped to -98 nucleotide (nt) relative to the ATG(More)
The mixotrophic growth with methanol plus thiosulfate was examined in nutrient-limited mixotrophic condition for Methylobacterium goesingense CBMB5 and Methylobacterium fujisawaense CBMB37. Thiosulfate oxidation increased the growth and protein yield in mixotrophic medium that contained 150 mM methanol and 20 mM sodium thiosulfate, at 144 h. Respirometric(More)
Sample preparation methods (pummeling, pulsifying, sonication, and shaking by hand) were compared for achieving maximum recovery of foodborne pathogens from iceberg lettuce, perilla leaves, cucumber, green pepper, and cherry tomato. Antimicrobial and dehydration effects also were examined to investigate causes of poor recovery of pathogens. Each produce(More)
Twenty-one thiosulfate-oxidizing bacteria were isolated from rhizosphere soils and 16S rRNA analysis revealed that the isolates were affiliated with seven different phylogenetic groups within the Beta and Gamma subclasses of Proteobacteria and Actinobacteria. Among these, five genera, including Dyella, Burkholderia, Alcaligenes, Microbacterium and Leifsonia(More)
