The Orthogonal Subspace Projection (OSP) algorithm is substantially a kind of matched filter that requires the evaluation of a prototype for each class to be detected. The kernel OSP (KOSP) has recently demonstrated improved results for target detection in hyperspectral images. The use of the kernel method makes the method non-linear, helps to combat the(More)
Isolated oxoglutarate carrier (OGC) can be cross-linked to dimers by disulfide-forming reagents such as Cu2+-phenanthroline and diamide. Acetone and other solvents increase the extent of Cu2+ -phenanthroline-induced cross-linking of OGC. Cross-linked OGC re-incorporated in proteoliposomes fully retains the oxoglutarate transport activity. The amount of(More)
Phosphate and oxoglutarate carriers transport phosphate and oxoglutarate across the inner membranes of mitochondria in exchange for OH- and malate, respectively. Both carriers belong to the mitochondrial carrier protein family, characterized by a tripartite structure made up of related sequences about 100 amino acids in length. The results obtained on the(More)
Polyclonal antibodies were raised in rabbits against two synthetic peptides corresponding to the N- and C-terminal regions of the rat-liver mitochondrial tricarboxylate carrier. ELISA tests performed with intact and permeabilized rat-liver mitoplasts showed that both anti-N-terminal and anti-C-terminal antibodies bind only to the cytoplasmic surface of the(More)
The folding of the peptide chain of the bovine heart oxoglutarate carrier in the inner mitochondrial membrane and in the membrane of reconstituted proteoliposomes has been investigated by enzymatic and immunochemical approaches using proteinase K and polyclonal site-directed antibodies, respectively. Two peptides corresponding to the amino acid sequences(More)
The oxoglutarate carrier (OGC) purified from bovine heart mitochondria was treated, both in its active and in its SDS-denatured state, with the fluorescent N-(1-pyrenyl)maleimide and other SH reagents before and after reduction with dithioerythritol or beta-mercaptoethanol. The number of SH groups per OGC polypeptide chain was found to be about 1 for the(More)
The dicarboxylate carrier from rat liver mitochondria was purified by the Amberlite/hydroxyapatite procedure and reconstituted in egg yolk phospholipid vesicles by removing the detergent with Amberlite. The efficiency of reconstitution was optimized with respect to the ratio of detergent/phospholipid, the concentration of phospholipid and the number of(More)
The interaction of sulfhydryl reagents with the oxoglutarate carrier (OGC) of bovine heart mitochondria was investigated in proteoliposomes reconstituted from purified carrier and lipids. Incubation of the proteoliposomes with maleimides or mercurials led to inhibition of the oxoglutarate carrier protein. The inhibition of oxoglutarate transport by(More)
