Functional cloning in yeast has been used to isolate full-length cDNAs encoding an endo-α-1,5-L-arabinanase from the filamentous fungus Aspergillus aculeatus. Screening of a cDNA library constructed in a yeast expression vector for transformants that hydrolysed AZCL-arabinan identified 44 Saccharomyces cerevisiae clones all harbouring the same(More)
Non-specific monoaminopeptidase (AP; E.C. 3.4.11) and X-prolyl dipeptidyl aminopeptidase (X-PDAP; E.C. 3.4.14.5), both from Aspergillus oryzae, demonstrate strong synergism in hydrolyzing proline-containing peptides. Incubation of AP alone with the peptide Ala-Pro-Gly-Asp-Arg-Ile-Tyr-Val-His-Pro-Phe does not generate free amino acids. However, when AP and(More)
OBJECTIVE To study processing and fermentability in the human gastro-intestinal tract of a newly isolated, enzymatically modified, soluble, and highly concentrated (> 80% dietary fibres) solubilised potato fibre (SPP). SETTING Gastroenterological laboratory. DESIGN, SUBJECTS AND INTERVENTIONS: Seven healthy volunteers ingested in random order on seven(More)
PROBLEM Elucidating immune mechanisms in the endometrium, which lead to the success of implantation and pregnancy, is important in reproductive medicine. Studies of immune cell abundance have shown conflicting results, and the expression and importance of HLA class Ib proteins in pre-implantation endometrium have not yet been investigated.
