A Novel Superoxide-producing NAD(P)H Oxidase in Kidney*
During phagocytosis, gp91 phox , the catalytic subunit of the phagocyte NADPH oxidase, becomes activated to produce superoxide, a precursor of microbicidal oxidants. Currently increasing evidenceExpand

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) mutations in Myanmar: G6PD Mahidol (487G>A) is the most common variant in the Myanmar population
AbstractWe conducted a survey of malaria diagnoses and treatments in remote areas of Myanmar. Blood specimens from more than 1,000 people were collected by the finger-prick method, and 121 (11%) ofExpand

Identification and Characterization of a Novel Family of Serine/Threonine Kinases Containing Two N-terminal LIM Motifs (*)
We previously isolated human cDNA coding for LIMK1 (LIM motif-containing protein kinase-1), a putative protein kinase containing two LIM motifs at the N terminus and an unusual protein kinase domainExpand

Male Fertility of Malaria Parasites Is Determined by GCS1, a Plant-Type Reproduction Factor
Malaria, which is caused by Plasmodium parasites, is transmitted by anopheline mosquitoes. When gametocytes, the precursor cells of Plasmodium gametes, are transferred to a mosquito, they fertilizeExpand

cDNA cloning of a novel bHLH-PAS transcription factor superfamily gene, BMAL2: its mRNA expression, subcellular distribution, and chromosomal localization.
We isolated a human cDNA encoding a novel member of the bHLH-PAS transcription factor superfamily, BMAL2, which is highly similar to, but distinct from, BMAL1. The composite cDNA covered a 1720-bpExpand

A gene outside the human MHC related to classical HLA class I genes.
By presenting antigenic peptides to T lymphocytes, major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules play important roles in the human immune system. Knowledge is limited on the evolutionaryExpand
