Isolation and characterization of GBP28, a novel gelatin-binding protein purified from human plasma.
TLDR
Its adipocyte-specific expression suggests that GBP28 may function as an endogenous factor involved in lipid catabolism and storage or whole body metabolism, and appears to belong to a family of proteins possessing a collagen-like domain through which they form homo-trimers, which further combine to make oligomeric complexes.
The cerebrospinal-fluid soluble form of Alzheimer's amyloid beta is complexed to SP-40,40 (apolipoprotein J), an inhibitor of the complement membrane-attack complex.
TLDR
Using direct binding experiments, this work isolated and characterized an 80 kDa circulating protein that specifically interacts with a synthetic peptide identical with A beta, and retrieved soluble A beta from cerebrospinal fluid, indicating that the interaction occurs in vivo.
Population study and validation of paternity testing for Thoroughbred horses by 15 microsatellite loci.
TLDR
A paternity testing case for a Thoroughbred horse family, in which candidate sires had close relations, was analyzed using the Microsatellite 15 TKY System and it was concluded that the microsatellites can give sufficient and reliable information for paternity testing.
Quantification of fragments of human serum inter-alpha-trypsin inhibitor heavy chain 4 by a surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization-based immunoassay.
TLDR
The fragmentation patterns within the PRR of human serum ITIH4 are associated with different disease conditions and may hold important diagnostic information that could be useful as potential biomarkers for detection and classification of cancer.
Purification and characterization of a novel hyaluronan-binding protein (PHBP) from human plasma: it has three EGF, a kringle and a serine protease domain, similar to hepatocyte growth factor
TLDR
The amino acid sequence deduced from the nucleotide sequence of the cloned PHBP cDNA exhibited significant homology to that of hepatocyte growth factor activator (HGFA), indicating that PHBP was a novel hyaluronan-binding protein in human plasma.
High-density-lipoprotein-independent killing of Trypanosoma brucei by human serum.
Change in expression of GBP28/adiponectin in carbon tetrachloride-administrated mouse liver.
TLDR
The results suggest that the circulating GBP28 binds the extracellular matrices of hepatocytes during the initial stage of CCl(4)-induced hepatic injury and the damaged hepatocytes themselves started to produceGBP28 thereafter.
Isolation and characterization of the plasma hyaluronan-binding protein (PHBP) gene (HABP2).
TLDR
Two overlapping clones that encode the human plasma hyaluronan-binding protein (PHBP) gene (HABP2) were isolated and characterized and chromosome mapping of this gene by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) using a genomic DNA fragment as a probe is reported.
SP-40,40 is a constituent of Alzheimer's amyloid
TLDR
β-amyloid contained SP-40,40 in a form different from that in the soluble membrane attack complex (SMAC, SC5b-9) of the complement, which contains S-protein as well as SP- 40,40.
