We hypothesize that age-related skeletal muscle dysfunction and physical disability may be partially explained by alterations in the function of the myosin molecule. To test this hypothesis, skeletal muscle function at the whole muscle, single fiber, and molecular levels was measured in young (21-35 yr) and older (65-75 yr) male and female volunteers with(More)
BACKGROUND Tissue factor (TF) is a single polypeptide integral membrane glycoprotein composed of 263 residues and is essential to life in its role as the initiator of blood coagulation. Previously we have shown that the activity of the natural placental TF (pTF) and the recombinant TF (rTF) from Sf9 insect cells is different (Krudysz-Amblo, J. et al (2010)(More)
A classic problem in analytical chemistry has been determination of individual components in a mixture without availability of the pure individual components. Measurement of the distribution of isotopomers in a labeled compound or mixture of labeled compounds is an example of this problem that is commonly encountered when stable isotopically labeled(More)
BACKGROUND Tissue factor (TF), an in vivo initiator of blood coagulation, is a transmembrane protein and has two disulfides in the extracellular domain. The integrity of one cysteine pair, Cys186-Cys209, has been hypothesized to be essential for an allosteric "decryption" phenomenon, presumably regulating TF procoagulant function, which has been the subject(More)
Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry analysis following tryptic digestion of polyacrylamide gel pieces is a common technique used to identify proteins. This approach is rapid, sensitive, and user friendly, and is becoming widely available to scientists in a variety of biological fields. Here we introduce a simple and(More)
The effect of glycosylation on tissue factor (TF) activity was evaluated, and site-specific glycosylation of full-length recombinant TF (rTF) and that of natural TF from human placenta (pTF) were studied by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. The amidolytic activity of the TF.factor VIIa (FVIIa) complex toward a fluorogenic substrate showed that(More)
