The wheat mitochondrial orf25 nucleotide sequence of 576 pb has been determined. Its derived protein sequence shares 88% and 75% amino acid identity with those of maize and tobacco mitochondria, respectively. The wheat and tobacco orf25 sequences lack four inserts, of 6 bp to 36 bp, that are present in the maize homologue. The wheat orf25 gene is actively(More)
The albumin gene family is comprised of four genes encoding: serum albumin (ALB), alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), alpha-albumin (ALF), and vitamin D-binding protein (DBP; also known as GC). The genes are regulated developmentally, expressed in the liver, and the proteins are secreted into the bloodstream. The GC gene, and the tandemly linked ALB and AFP genes,(More)
The combination of polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and Concanavalin-A-Sepharose affinity chromatography has permitted the isolation on a preparative scale, of four molecular forms of rat alpha 1-fetoprotein: a "slow" and a "fast" fraction, each separable into Concanavalin-A-adsorbed ("high carbohydrate", i.e. rich in accessible alphaD-Mannosyl and(More)
The capacity of mitochondria isolated from livers of 5-day-old piglets to convert pyruvate to phosphoenolpyruvate, malate and citrate has been investigated. These mitochondria have a large capacity to flux pyruvate through the pyruvate carboxylase reaction causing an accumulation of malate, citrate and phosphoenolpyruvate. As much as 70% of the pyruvate(More)
