Meal fatty acid uptake in adipose tissue: gender effects in nonobese humans.
Significant gender differences in regional adipose tissue blood flow after meal ingestion were noted; the differences were in the direction that could support greater nutrient storage in lower body fat in women. Expand
Measurement of plasma glycerol specific activity by high performance liquid chromatography to determine glycerol flux.
A new high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method is described that permits the accurate and specific measurement of glycerol SA and offers improved specificity over existing methods of measuring Glycerol turnover using radiotracers. Expand
Kinetics of the DNA polymerase pyrococcus kodakaraensis
Abstract The polymerase chain reaction is one of the most important reactions in molecular biology. Single stranded DNA is copied in a complex series of steps, at the core of which lies the action ofExpand
Ethylene Sensitivity In Germinating Peanut Seeds: The Effect of Short-Chain Saturated Fatty Acids
Germination of non-dormant peanut seeds is characterized by a “climacteric-like” pattern in ethylene production, which may suggest an increase in EFE activity of the seeds. Expand
The multiple forms of mushroom tyrosinase. Structural studies on the isozymes.
Comparison of tryptic peptide maps point to a close similarity among the isozymes, though the α-isozyme displays some differences, while the β-tyrosinase is different in several respects. Expand
Purification and characterization of human kidney cytosolic cysteine conjugate beta-lyase activity.
Beta-Lyase activity was inhibited by aminooxyacetic acid, indicating that the human cytosolic enzyme contains pyridoxal phosphate, and by the nephrotoxins S-(1,2-dichlorovinyl)-L-cysteine and S-homocysteine, which serve as alternative substrates. Expand
The formation of chlorobenzene and benzene by the reductive metabolism of lindane in rat liver microsomes.
Results indicate that lindane interacts readily with heme and heme proteins, including cytochrome P-450, in the absence of oxygen to undergo multiple chloride eliminations forming chlorobenzene and benzene as end products. Expand
[79] Tyrosinase (mushroom)
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the assay, purification, and properties of tyrosinase. The rate of oxygen consumption catalyzed by the enzyme in the presence of 4-tert-butylcatechol asExpand
The release of inorganic fluoride from halothane and halothane metabolites by cytochrome P-450, hemin, and hemoglobin.
Two novel reductive pathways utilizing reduced cytochrome P-450, hemoglobin, or hemin liberate fluoride from halothane liberate fluoride in microsomes under air or nitrogen. Expand
Meal fatty acid uptake in human adipose tissue: technical and experimental design issues.
The adipose tissue triglyceride specific activity from bilateral biopsy sites agreed well, implying that a unilateral biopsy is satisfactory for measuring tracer uptake, and the findings have implications for the experimental design of future meal fatty acid tracer/adipose tissue biopsy studies.
