BETA2/NeuroD1 is a bHLH transcription factor that is expressed during development in the mammalian pancreas and in many locations in the central and peripheral nervous systems. During inner ear ontogenesis, it is present in both sensory ganglion neurons and sensory epithelia. Although studies have shown that BETA2/NeuroD1 is important in the development of(More)
The very-low-density-lipoprotein receptor (VLDLR) is a recently described lipoprotein receptor that shows considerable similarity to the low-density-lipoprotein receptor (LDLR). This receptor has been suggested to be important for the metabolism of apoprotein-E-containing triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins, such as very-low-density-lipoprotein (VLDL),(More)
The complete nucleotide sequence of the cloned hepatitis B virus DNA subtype adr in pADR-1 was determined by Maxam and Gilbert's method. It is 3215 base pairs in size, which is 27 bp longer than the sequence of the adr pHBr330, as reported by Ono et al. The nucleotide difference between pADR-1 and adr pHBr330 is about 2% while those between pADR-1 and adw(More)
The expression of the hepatic lipase (HL) gene is highly tissue specific. In order to identify cis-acting elements which regulate the expression of this gene in the liver, multiple deletion mutants of the 5'-flanking region of the HL gene fused to the human growth hormone gene were transfected in HepG2 cells, which normally produce HL. Transient expression(More)
A complementary DNA for glucokinase (GK) was cloned from mouse liver total RNA by a combination of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and mouse liver cDNA library screening. Liver- and beta-cell-specific exons 1 were isolated by PCR using mouse and rat genomic DNAs. These clones were then used to screen a mouse genomic library; three genomic clones were(More)
The nucleotide sequence of the XhoI-BamHI fragment (1279bp), which contains the surface antigen gene (S gene) of HBVadr, was determined by Maxam and Gilbert's method. By comparing the differences both of the nucleotide sequence in the S gene and its coded amino acid sequence between adr and those reported for adw, ayw and adyw, some new variation sites were(More)
The effect of exerted pressure of the buffer rod on the sensitivity of ultrasonic testing of hot steel blooms by the pressure contact method is discussed. The formula describing their linear relation is introduced. Results show that, at a given temperature, sensitivity increases linearly with pressure until a certain pressure is reached where sensitivity is(More)
