Nanoparticles have been drawn attention in various fields ranging from medicine to industry because of their physicochemical properties and functions, which lead to extensive human exposure to nanoparticles. Bismuth (Bi)-based compounds have been commonly used in the industrial, cosmetic and medical applications. Although the toxicity of Bi-based compounds(More)
We have expressed the 57-amino acid Kunitz domain of the Alzheimer's beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP751) as a bacterial fusion protein. The protease inhibitory properties of the purified fusion protein, BX9, were virtually identical in all respects tested to those of purified secreted APP751. Both proteins strongly inhibited pancreatic trypsin (Kis =(More)
The mutagenicities of 2,2'-(di-3-hydroxyphenyl)-1H,1H'-[5,5']-bisbenzimidazole, 2,2'-(di-4-hydroxyphenyl)-1H,1H'-[5,5']-bisbenzimidazole, 2,2'-(di-3-methoxyphenyl)-1H,1H'-[5,5']-bisbenzimidazole, 2,2'-bis-(4-nitrophenyl)-1H,1H'-[5,5']-bisbenzimidazole, 2,2'-bis-(3-nitrophenyl)-1H,1H'-[5,5']-bisbenzimidazole,(More)
Evaluation and sequencing of heritable alterations in the human genome and the large-scale identification of gene polymorphism for understanding the genetic background of individuals in response to potential toxicants are provided by toxicogenetics. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes play role not only phase I-dependent metabolism of xenobiotics but also(More)
Pharmacogenetics is a vast field covering drug discovery research, the genetic basis of pharmacokinetics and dynamics, genetic testing and clinical management in diseases. Pharmacogenetic approach usually focuses on variations of drug transporters, drug targets, drug metabolizing enzymes and other biomarker genes. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, an essential(More)
Mouse nerve growth factor (NGF) is cleaved at a histidine-methionine bond to release an NH2-terminal octapeptide (NGF1-8). The enzyme responsible, beta-NGF-endopeptidase, is structurally and functionally similar to gamma-NGF and epidermal growth factor-binding protein (EGF-BP) and cleaves mouse low molecular weight kininogen to produce bradykinin-like(More)
