Mature 53 kDa histidine decarboxylase (HDC) peptide is produced from a precursor 74 kDa peptide. The mechanism of specific cleavage by processing enzyme is unknown. Using the recombinant mouse 74 kDa HDC, we found that porcine pancreatic elastase specifically converted the inactive 74 kDa HDC to its active form of 53 kDa HDC.
A two-dimensional etching simulator named ESPRIT (FOOTNOTE: ESPRIT--Etching Simulation PRogram with an Improved sTring model.) has been developed to simulate LSI patterning. The etching simulator includes isotropic and anisotropic components. Its calculation method is based on the string model. ESPRIT can simulate etched profiles for multilayers with(More)
12-O-Tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA), a potent tumor-promoting phorbol ester, stimulates histidine decarboxylase (HDC) activity in mouse mastocytoma P-815 cells. Activation of a transcriptional factor is believed to be involved in the effect of TPA.In vitro experiments indicated that TPA-induced HDC activation is caused by transcriptional activation(More)
A new two-dimensional integrated process simulation system named SPIRIT-I (Simulation Processor for Integrated Representation of Impurity-profile and Topography-I) has been developed. This system includes elementary process simulators of deposition, lithography, etching, ion implantation, diffusion, and oxidation. SPIRIT features a closely coupled(More)
