The relationship between the concentration of Mg2+ and the binding of GDP and GTP to tubulin dimers was investigated by measuring the displacement of the nucleotide bound at the exchangeable site (E-site) by radiolabeled GDP and GTP. A wide range of concentrations of GTP, GDP, and Mg2+ was explored. In the near absence of Mg2+, the affinity of tubulin for(More)
The K+-evoked release of dynorphin A(1-8)-like immunoreactivity from guinea pig hippocampal mossy fiber synaptosomes was inhibited 53% by L(+)-2-amino-4-phosphonobutyrate (L(+)APB, 300 microM), a glutamate analogue. Equimolar L(+)APB also inhibited the Ca2+-dependent component of endogenous L-glutamate release from these mossy fiber synaptosomes by 40%. The(More)
The clinical expression of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) is undoubtedly influenced by modifying genetic and environmental factors. Lifestyle practices such as tobacco and alcohol use, poor nutritional intake, and physical inactivity are strongly associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes and increased mortality in the general population.

We have identified two protein kinase activities in homogenates of bovine parathyroid tissue following fractionation on DEAE columns. One of these is a protein kinase C based upon its requirement for calcium and phosphatidylserine and the other one is probably M kinase. The protein kinase C phosphorylated both proparathyroid hormone and parathyroid hormone(More)
The number of moles of guanine nucleotides (denoted GXP), either guanosine 5'-triphosphate (GTP) or guanosine 5'-diphosphate (GDP), bound to a mole of phosphocellulose-purified tubulin after gel filtration into a variety of nucleotide-free buffers has been measured (H. B. Croom, J. J. Correia, and R. C. Williams, Jr., unpublished results). All buffers we(More)
