Superoxide release and NADPH oxidase components in mature human phagocytes: correlation between functional capacity and amount of functional proteins.
We evaluated the interrelationship between the respiratory activity and amount of proteins responsible for this function in normal and subnormal human phagocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils, monocytes,Expand

Purification and properties of trehalose-synthesizing enzyme from Pseudomonas sp. F1
The trehalose-synthesizing enzyme, which catalyzes the conversion of maltose to trehalose by intramolecular transglucosylation, was purified from a bacterium, Pseudomonas sp. F1. Its molecular massExpand

Activation of human monocyte functions by tumor necrosis factor: rapid priming for enhanced release of superoxide and erythrophagocytosis, but no direct triggering of superoxide release.
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF), like granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimul ating factor (GM-CSF), rapidly primed human monocytes for enhanced release of superoxide (O-2) stimulated by receptor-mediatedExpand

Stimulation and priming of human neutrophils by IL-1 alpha and IL-1 beta: complete inhibition by IL-1 receptor antagonist and no interaction with other cytokines.
Together, interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1 alpha) and IL-1 beta primed human neutrophils for enhanced release of superoxide (O2-) stimulated by chemotactic peptide, chemokine, and plant lectin, and alone,Expand

Signal transduction pathways in normal human monocytes stimulated by cytokines and mediators: comparative study with normal human neutrophils or transformed cells and the putative roles in
Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and interleukin (IL) -3 induced tyrosine phosphorylation of 92-kDa protein in normal human monocytes. We identified this 92-kDa protein asExpand

Helminth fauna of carnivores distributed in north-western Tohoku, Japan, with special reference to Mesocestoides paucitesticulus and Brachylaima tokudai.
In the winter of 1998-1999, we collected parasitological data from 54 wild carnivores in the north-western part of Tohoku region, Japan. These consisted of 38 martens (Martes melampus melampus), 14Expand

Effects of intravenous betaine on methionine-loading-induced plasma homocysteine elevation in rats.
An intravenous methionine-loading model was characterized, and the suppressive effect of betaine on plasma homocysteine elevation induced by methionine loading was examined in rats. The plasmaExpand

[Immunoblastic lymphadenopathy-like T cell lymphoma accompanied by autoimmune hemolytic anemia].
A 62-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of generalized lymphadenopathy, fever and skin eruptions. The histology of the right cervical lymph nodes showed immunoblastic lymphadenopathyExpand

Tyrosine phosphorylation of vav protooncogene product in primary human myelogenous leukemic cells stimulated by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor.
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor(G-CSF), but not granulocyte-macrophage CSF(GM-CSF), induced tyrosine phosphorylation of 95-kDa protein in 13 cases of primary human acute myelogenous leukemicExpand
