The characteristics of hydroperoxide activation of 5-lipoxygenase were examined in the high speed supernatant fraction prepared from rat polymorphonuclear leukocytes. Stimulation of 5-lipoxygenase activity by the 5-hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid (5-HPETE) reaction product was strongly dependent on the presence of thiol compounds. Various reducing agents(More)
The sorption and desorption of cyfluthrin mixture isomers were determined using batch equilibration method and mobility was studied under laboratory conditions, using packed soil column. The soil types used in the study were clayey, clay loam and sandy clay loam obtained from three tomato farms in Cameron Highlands. A low Freundlich adsorption distribution(More)
The effect of disulfiram on the 5-lipoxygenase activity from rat polymorphonuclear leukocyte cell-free lysates was determined and compared with that of other thiocarbamoyl and aryl disulfides. Disulfiram was a potent inhibitor of the soluble 5-lipoxygenase causing 50% inhibition at submicromolar concentrations (0.4-0.7 microM). The inhibition by disulfiram(More)
The stable nucleotide analog guanosine 5'-O-(3-thiotriphosphate) (GTP gamma S) was found to be a very potent activator of 5-lipoxygenase in cell-free preparations from rat polymorphonuclear (PMN) leukocytes, causing a 10-fold stimulation of arachidonic acid oxidation at concentrations as low as 0.5-1 microM. The enhancement of enzyme activity was not(More)
