Choline monooxygenase, an unusual iron-sulfur enzyme catalyzing the first step of glycine betaine synthesis in plants: prosthetic group characterization and cDNA cloning.
Plants synthesize the osmoprotectant glycine betaine via the route choline --> betaine aldehyde --> glycine betaine. In spinach, the first step is catalyzed by choline monooxygenase (CMO), aExpand

Phosphorylation of Serine-15 of Maize Leaf Sucrose Synthase (Occurrence in Vivo and Possible Regulatory Significance)
Experiments were conducted to determine whether sucrose synthase (SuSy) was phosphorylated in the elongation zone of maize (Zea mays L.) leaves. The approximately 90-kD subunit of SuSy wasExpand

The inhibitor protein of phosphorylated nitrate reductase from spinach (Spinacia oleracea) leaves is a 14‐3‐3 protein
The inhibitor protein (IP) that inactivates spinach leaf NADH:nitrate reductase (NR) has been identified for the first time as a member of the eukaryotic 14‐3‐3 protein family based on three lines ofExpand

High variation of PCDDs, PCDFs, and dioxin-like PCBs ratio in cooked food from the first total diet survey in Taiwan.
This study determined the levels of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs), and dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (dl-PCBs) in 240 individual food samples,Expand

An approach to locate phosphorylation sites in a phosphoprotein: mass mapping by combining specific enzymatic degradation with matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry.
A rapid, picomole-scale method is described to locate phosphorylation sites in phosphoproteins by using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS)Expand

Serum PCDD/F concentration distribution in residents living in the vicinity of an incinerator and its association with predicted ambient dioxin exposure.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the serum polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin (PCDD) and dibenzofuran (PCDF) concentration distribution in residents living in the vicinity of an incinerator andExpand

High average daily intake of PCDD/Fs and serum levels in residents living near a deserted factory producing pentachlorophenol (PCP) in Taiwan: influence of contaminated fish consumption.
An abandoned pentachlorophenol plant and nearby area in southern Taiwan was heavily contaminated by dioxins, impurities formed in the PCP production process. The investigation showed that the averageExpand

Evaluation of PCDD/Fs patterns emitted from incinerator via direct ambient sampling and indirect serum levels assessment of Taiwanese.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the PCDD/Fs patterns in ambient air based on data information emitted from incinerator generated from ambient air measurements and those in serum. Four circularExpand

Interrelationship between exposure to PCDD/Fs and hypertension in metabolic syndrome in Taiwanese living near a highly contaminated area.
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) consists of a constellation of metabolic abnormalities that confer increased risk of cardiovascular disease. There is a positive correlation between exposure to persistentExpand
