Glutathione is an important antioxidant in most prokaryotes and eukaryotes. It detoxifies reactive oxygen species and is also involved in the modulation of gene expression, in redox signaling, and in the regulation of enzymatic activities. In this study, the subcellular distribution of glutathione was studied in Saccharomyces cerevisiae by quantitative(More)
Glutathione plays numerous important functions in eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. Whereas it can be found in virtually all eukaryotic cells, its production in prokaryotes is restricted to cyanobacteria and proteobacteria and a few strains of gram-positive bacteria. In bacteria, it is involved in the protection against reactive oxygen species (ROS),(More)
Aminopeptidase N (APN; CD13) is a ubiquitous membrane-bound enzyme. Expressed on haematopoietic cells APN participates in inflammatory and immune responses by regulating local concentration of chemotactic peptides and by fine-tuning antigen presentation. The data of this study have shown for the first time that cells of murine macrophage line, J774, often(More)
Chiral amino acid and biphenyl incorporating oxalamide gelators 4-7 with large, 9 bond distance between chiral centres and biphenyl units have been studied. CD investigation of 4-octanol gel and the crystal structure of rac-4 reveal that efficient central to axial chirality transfer occurs by intermolecular interactions in gel and solid state assemblies.
Working in synchrony, photosynthetic charge separation, electron transfer, and redox reactions generate proton motive force necessary for the synthesis of ATP and funneling of electrons toward stromal reducing equivalent NADPH. The last step of electron transfer from ferredoxin to NADP is catalyzed by ferredoxin-NADP oxidoreductase (FNR). Two proteins, TROL(More)
