Uridine diphosphate galactose 4-epimerase deficiency
The enzyme activity in a specimen of liver tissue obtained from the patient by needle biopsy revealed a normal value, and two other families with the condition were found by mass screening and these individuals were found to be heterozygotes. Expand
Remarkable Changes in the Plasma Levels of Pituitary Protein “7B2” during Childhood
Plasma levels of IR-7B2 decreased with age during childhood to reach the adult level at 15–20 yr of age, and the possibility of a relationship between the reduction of plasma IR- 7B2 levels and pubertal development warrants attention. Expand
Synthesis of dipeptide-type human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) protease inhibitors with a binding unit to gp120.
Some dipeptide-type human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) protease inhibitors derived from KNI-102, with a N-carbomethoxycarbonylprolyl-phenylalanine benzyl ester (CPF) moiety as a binding site toExpand
Cytochrome B558 Component of O‐2M Generating Oxidase in the Neutrophils From Patients With Chronic Granulomatous Disease
Cytochrome b558 from the neutrophils of two male patients with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) and their parents was studied, and abnormalities in NADPH oxidase of the two patients were different. Expand
IgM Antibody to Core Antigen of Hepatitis B Virus in Vertical Transmission
It is concluded that examination of this antibody is not useful for such purposes because IgM‐HBcAb may not be produced during the period when immune tolerance to HBV is maintained, since it was detected only in association with occurrence of liver cell injury. Expand
Immunoenzymatic studies of ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) in liver of patients with OTC deficiency by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
Antigen contents of ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) protein in the liver of 5 patients with OTC deficiency and mutant mice were studied by ELISA, which is more sensitive as compared with the radial immunodiffusion technique. Expand
