The interaction of Escherichia coli agmatinase (EC 3.5.3.11) with the substrate guanidinium group was investigated by kinetic and site-directed mutagenesis studies. Putrescine and guanidinium ions (Gdn+) were slope-linear, competitive inhibitors with respect to agmatine and their bindings to the enzyme were not mutually exclusive. By site-directed(More)
To examine the interaction of human arginase II (EC 3.5.3.1) with substrate and manganese ions, the His120Asn, His145Asn and Asn149Asp mutations were introduced separately. About 53% and 95% of wild-type arginase activity were expressed by fully manganese activated species of the His120Asn and His145Asn variants, respectively. The K(m) for arginine (1.4-1.6(More)
The present work investigates whether the hemispheric processing of both verbal and emotional stimuli, studied by means of a dichotic listening task, differs between normal high and low dissociators as assessed by the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES; Bernstein & Putnam (1986). Development, reliability and validity of a dissociation scale. Journal of(More)
Polarized infrared spectroscopy in attenuated total reflection was used to investigate the adsorption of PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) onto PS (polystyrene) that was previously adsorbed onto oxidized silicon from dilute solution in carbon tetrachloride at 30°C. The carbonyl group of PMMA forms hydrogen bonds with surface silanol groups, giving(More)
