Atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) is synthesized and stored in atrial cardiocytes as a 17-kilodalton (kDa), 126 amino acid polypeptide, proANF, but circulates as smaller, 24 and 28 amino acid peptide fragments of the carboxy terminus of proANF. It has previously been shown that proANF is secreted intact from cultured atrial cardiocytes and can be cleaved by a(More)
The similarities of two major peanut allergens, Ara h 2 and Ara h 6, in molecular size, amino acid sequence, and structure have made it difficult to obtain natural Ara h 6 free of Ara h 2. The objectives of this study were to purify natural Ara h 6 that is essentially free of Ara h 2 and to compare its IgE reactivity and potency in histamine release assays(More)
