Algorithms belonging to the class of pixel-based reconstruction (PBR) algorithms, which are similar to simultaneous iterative reconstruction techniques (SIRTs) for reconstruction of objects from their fan beam projections in X-ray transmission tomography, are discussed. The general logic of these algorithms is discussed. Simulation studies indicate that,(More)
Replitase is a multienzyme complex of mammalian cells that produces deoxynucleoside triphosphates and delivers them to the DNA polymerase activity, which also resides in the complex. Structural interactions within this complex form the basis of internal controls to keep these key biosynthetic processes efficient and in balance. The active complex is formed(More)
The enzymes of DNA polymerization and DNA precursor synthesis are assembled in the replitase complex during the S phase of the cell cycle. Cross-inhibition is a phenomenon shown by enzymes of the replitase complex, in which inhibition of one enzyme of the complex leads to inhibition of a second, unrelated enzyme. This inhibition occurs only in vivo and only(More)
Chicken rod and cone pigments are chromatographically resolved using a combination of stepwise elution from a concanavalin A affinity column and a secondary ion exchange purification. The rod pigment rhodopsin and the cone pigment iodopsin are purified to homogeneity. There is a partial separation of three other cone pigments: chicken green, chicken blue,(More)
The main light-activated enzyme of the vertebrate photoreceptor is cGMP phosphodiesterase, whose product is GMP. GMP would be broken down to guanosine by the enzyme 5'-nucleotidase on the cytoplasmic (extradiscal) surface of the disks. The presence of 5'-nucleotidase on the cytoplasmic surface was verified by using sucrose continuous gradients to show its(More)
