Calcium Binding, but Not a Calcium-Myristoyl Switch, Controls the Ability of Guanylyl Cyclase-activating Protein GCAP-2 to Regulate Photoreceptor Guanylyl Cyclase*
Guanylyl cyclase-activating protein 2 (GCAP-2) is a recoverin-like calcium-binding protein that regulates photoreceptor guanylyl cyclase (RetGC) (Dizhoor, A. M., and Hurley, J. B. (1996)J. Biol.Expand

The Passage of Vitamin C across the Erythrocyte Membrane
Summary In all the species examined dehydroascorbic acid entered the erythrocyte considerably more rapidly than ascorbic acid (vitamin C). The uptake was pH‐dependent but did not appear to beExpand

Calcium-dependent solvation of the myristoyl group of recoverin.
Recoverin is an N-myristoylated calcium-binding protein present in the photoreceptor cells of the mammalian retina. It is believed to function as a calcium sensor in visual signal transduction byExpand

The dietary potential of the common nettle.
A leaf protein concentrate prepared from the young leaves of the common nettle (Urtica dioica) failed to support normal growth in young rats; supplementation with methionine produced a proteinExpand

The uptake of D-araboascorbic acid (D-isoascorbic acid) by guinea-pig tissues.
I. Guinea-pigs on a low, controlled intake of ascorbic acid (0.3 mg/Ioo g body-weight) were given daily an oral supplement of L-ascorbic acid (AA) or of D-isoascorbic acid (isoAA) (both 1.5 mg/Ioo gExpand

Plasma and leukocyte ascorbic acid levels in the elderly.
A survey of ascorbic acid blood levels was carried out in the elderly population of a South Wales town. Response rates of 88% for the men and 84% for the women were obtained, and 830 subjects wereExpand
