We have cloned and sequenced the Lactobacillus casei ptsH and ptsI genes, which encode enzyme I and HPr, respectively, the general components of the phosphoenolpyruvate-carbohydrate phosphotransferase system (PTS). Northern blot analysis revealed that these two genes are organized in a single-transcriptional unit whose expression is partially induced. The(More)
Thiol groups of hemoglobin and blood glutathione are higher in Geochelone carbonaria than in Geochelone denticulata. Exposure of stripped hemolysate of both tortoises to terc-butyl hydroperoxide, resulted in a higher ferroheme oxidation of G. denticulata hemoglobin. In this example glutathione reductase and glutathione peroxidase, were not active due to the(More)
– Background: Physical activity during pregnancy provides countless benefits to pregnant women and results in a smaller number of falls during pregnancy. Thus, this study aims to verify the influence of physical activity and test conditions on the static and dynamic balance of pregnant women. Methodology: The study was an analytical, transversal, and(More)
The reaction of thiol reagents with G. carbonaria hemoglobin was studied, and the oxygen equilibrium and kinetic of oxidation of derivatives determined. The oxygen affinity and kinetic of oxidation of hemoglobin derivatives were modified to various extents depending on the nature of thiol reagents used. Diamide yielded approximately 80% polymeric(More)
