An allergenic pentasaccharitol, Gp-1 beta-b6, was isolated as a minimum structural unit responsible for the allergic reaction in skin of patients with sea squirt allergy from a saccharitol fraction, Gp-1 beta-b, that had been liberated by beta-elimination from a glycopeptide in a Pronase digest of a sea squirt antigen, Gi-rep. Methylation/GC-MS and FAB-MS(More)
Root apical meristem (RAM) organization in lycophytes could be a key to understanding the early evolution of roots, but this topic has been insufficiently explored. We examined the RAM organization of lycophytes in terms of cell division activities and anatomies, and compared RAMs among vascular plants. RAMs of 13 species of lycophytes were(More)
Histamine dehydrogenase from Nocardioides simplex (nHmDH) is a homodimer containing one 6-S-cysteinyl FMN (CFMN) and one [4Fe-4S] cluster per monomer. nHmDH catalyses the oxidative deamination of histamine to ammonia and imidazole acetaldehyde, but histamine inhibits its catalytic activity at high concentrations. We mutated gene-encoded residues (Tyr180,(More)
Histamine dehydrogenase from Nocardioides simplex (HmDH) which catalyzes the oxidative deamination of histamine is an iron-sulphur-containing flavoprotein. For our further understanding on the intramolecular electron transfer process, the reductive half reaction of HmDH with histamine has been studied by stopped flow spectrophotometry at pH 7.5 and 10. The(More)
Histamine dehydrogenase from Nocardioides simplex is a homodimer and belongs to the family of iron-sulfur flavoproteins having one [4Fe-4S] cluster and one 6-S-cysteinyl FMN per monomer. In the reductive titration with histamine, two-electron reduction occurred per monomer at pH<9, while single-electron reduction proceeded at pH>9. The substrate-reduced(More)
