Myosin is identified and purified from three different established Drosophila melanogaster cell lines (Schneider's lines 2 and 3 and Kc). Purification entails lysis in a low salt, sucrose buffer that contains ATP, chromatography on DEAE-cellulose, precipitation with actin in the absence of ATP, gel filtration in a discontinuous KI-KCl buffer system, and(More)
Human myosin heavy chains are encoded by a multigene family consisting of at least 10 members. A gene-specific oligonucleotide has been used to isolate the human beta myosin heavy chain gene from a group of twelve nonoverlapping genomic clones. We have shown that this gene (which is expressed in both cardiac and skeletal muscle) is located 3.6kb upstream of(More)
We have isolated a human cDNA which corresponds to a developmentally regulated sarcomeric myosin heavy chain. RNA hybridization and DNA sequence analysis indicate that this cDNA, called SMHCP, encodes a perinatal myosin heavy chain isoform. The nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequences of the 3.4-kb cDNA insert show strong homology with other sarcomeric(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of candesartan cilexetil (CC) in the management of blood pressure (BP) in diabetic and non-diabetic hypertensive patients. METHODS A selection of five randomized double-blind clinical trials in which patients were treated for hypertension with CC was analyzed. All of these were similar in design: i) a 4-week placebo run-in(More)
