The effect of C-protein on the assembly reaction of myosin was studied by flow birefringence, electron microscopy, and ultracentrifugation. Myosin filaments were formed by dilution to a lower ionic strength. Thinner filaments of 70-110 A in diameter were formed in the presence of C-protein. When dilution was effected by moderately slow dilution (dilution(More)
F-Protein has an amino acid composition distinctively different from those of myofibriller proteins so far reported to be of similar chain weight: M-protein component II, alpha-actinin, and AMP deaminase. Its molecular weight was estimated to be 121,000 by sedimentation equilibrium in 0.3 M KCl, 10 mM potassium phosphate, pH 6.5. Its binding to myosin was(More)
The electric dipole moment of rabbit skeletal myosin was estimated from the electric and flow birefringence properties. Myosin formed small polydisperse aggregates (0.2-1.1 microM in length) with an apparent electric dipole moment of 5,000-20,000 Debye in aqueous urea or sodium pyrophosphate at low ionic strength. Permanent dipole moment contributed(More)
Effect of Colcemid treatment of myeloma (X63-Ag8-6.5.3.) prior to fusion with mouse spleen cell was studied in terms of hybridoma formation. Spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with various soluble antigens were fused with the myeloma cells by using polyethylene glycol solution. Colcemid treatment of myeloma cells prior to fusion increased the average(More)
Magnesium-aluminum oxide (Mg-Al oxide) prepared by the thermal decomposition of a hydrotalcite-like compound was found to have potential for treating NaBF(4) wastewater. The Mg-Al oxide removed the BF(4)(-) and F(-) and H(3)BO(3) from the NaBF(4) solution. With increasing Mg-Al oxide quantity and time, the BF(4)(-) concentration decreased and the degree of(More)
In an effort to determine the lowest acceptable temperature for liquid preservation of red blood cells, the latter were stored at 5, 0, -2 and -5 degrees C. When polyvinylchloride (PVC) bags plasticized with di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) were used as containers, hemolysis of red cells stored for 42 days at 0 degree C was lower than at the other three(More)
The in vitro assembly of rabbit skeletal myosin was studied by flow birefringence. Filaments were obtained from a solution of myosin in 0.5 M KCl by rapid dilution to lower ionic strength. In most cases, the filament length as determined from extinction angle measurements increased or decreased gradually for about 1 h after dilution, depending on pH, KCl(More)
