Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) was purified from three strains of Streptococcus bovis, and the gene ldh was cloned and sequenced. The ldh of S. bovis from a goat (TH1) was different from the ldhs of two other strains from cattle (TH2, JB1) in that Asp(220) was substituted for Glu. Northern blot analysis revealed that the LDH-mRNA of S. bovis was approximately(More)
Although an increased heart rate (HR) is a strong predictor of poor prognosis in cases of chronic heart failure (HF), the clinical value of HR as a predictor in acute decompensated HF (ADHF) is unclear. Seventy-eight patients with nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NIDCM) with sinus rhythm who were first hospitalized for ADHF from 2002 to 2010 were(More)
Endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) and late gadolinium enhancement cardiovascular magnetic resonance (LGE-CMR) imaging performed at baseline are both used to evaluate the extent of myocardial fibrosis. However, no study has directly compared the effectiveness of these diagnostic tools in the prediction of left ventricular reverse remodeling (LVRR) and prognosis in(More)
Nitrate reductase (NaR) of a strain of Selenomonas ruminantium was purified, and the gene encoding NaR (nar) was sequenced. The 6.4 kbp nar gene consisted of narG, H, J, and I in this order. The deduced amino acid sequences of these subunits resembled those of membrane-bound nitrate reductase-A reported for Escherichia coli. It was shown that narG, H, J,(More)
