The double isotope technique of Arias, Doyle, and Schimke ((1969) J. Biol. Chem. 244, 3303) with radioactive leucine as precursor has been modified to yield accurate values for rate constants of protein degradation. The advantages of the method are that it is both rapid and reproducible in that the protein whose half-life is being measured is isolated only(More)
The amount of lactate dehydrogenase isozyme 4 in erythrocytes of mice is controlled by alleles at the Ldr-1 locus. The A subunits of lactate dehydrogenase from erythrocytes deficient in isozyme 4 cannot assemble in vitro with B subunits to form active isozyme. The inability to form hybrid enzyme is not due to a mutation in the structural gene for the A(More)
Published retrospective studies of the relationship between the use of oral contraceptives and disease have assumed that women are able to recall their oral contraceptive histories with reasonable accuracy. The validity of this assumption has been investigated by comparing oral contraceptive histories obtained from 75 women attending family planning clinics(More)
