Glucokinase (GK) and glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase) regulate rate-limiting reactions in the physiologically opposed metabolic cascades, glycolysis and gluconeogenesis, respectively. Expression of these genes is conversely regulated in the liver in response to fasting and feeding. We explored the mechanism of transcriptional regulation of these genes by(More)
Immunohistochemical artifacts for nitrotyrosine were investigated in eosinophils with regard to fixatives. Immunoreactivity for nitrotyrosine was revealed in separated eosinophils and in gastric mucosa fixed with periodate, lysine-paraformaldehyde (PLP). The increase in immunoreactivity by PLP was due to periodate itself, a component of PLP. Nitrotyrosine(More)
The human eosinophilic leukemia cell line, EoL-1, differentiated with butyrate as an eosinophilic cellular model was evaluated for peroxidase-dependent tyrosine nitration. Butyrate suppressed cell growth and induced eosinophilic granules in EoL-1 cells after 9 days of culture. Peroxidase activity was detected biochemically and histochemically from 3-day(More)
In the present study, we investigated how cytochrome c catalyzed the nitration of tyrosine at various pHs. The cytochrome c-catalyzed nitration of tyrosine occurred in proportion to the concentration of hydrogen peroxide, nitrite or cytochrome c. The cytochromec-catalyzed nitration of tyrosine was inhibited by catalase, sodium azide, cystein, and uric acid.(More)
