Clp P represents a unique family of serine proteases.
The amino acid sequence of Clp P, the proteolytic subunit of the ATP-dependent Clp protease of Escherichia coli, closely resembles a protein encoded by chloroplast DNA, which is well conservedExpand

TANK2, a New TRF1-associated Poly(ADP-ribose) Polymerase, Causes Rapid Induction of Cell Death upon Overexpression*
Tankyrase (TANK1) is a human telomere-associated poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) that binds the telomere-binding protein TRF1 and increases telomere length when overexpressed. Here we reportExpand

PRMT5, Which Forms Distinct Homo-oligomers, Is a Member of the Protein-arginine Methyltransferase Family*
We found that JBP1, known as a human homolog (Skb1Hs) of Skb1 of fission yeast, interacts with NS3 of the hepatitis C virus in a yeast two-hybrid screen. Amino acid sequence analysis revealed thatExpand

Variation in isoflavone of soybean cultivars with location and storage duration.
Fifteen soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill] cultivars were grown in Seoul, Suwon, and Kyongsan, Korea, in 1998, 1999, and 2000, and their isoflavone contents were assessed. After harvest, the beansExpand

Identification of a unique ligand which has high affinity for all four bombesin receptor subtypes.
Four subtypes of bombesin receptors are identified (gastrin-releasing peptide receptor, neuromedin B receptor, the orphan receptor bombesin receptor subtype 3 (BB3 or BRS-3) and bombesin receptorExpand

Cognitive-enhancing and antioxidant activities of iridoid glycosides from Scrophularia buergeriana in scopolamine-treated mice.
The cognitive-enhancing activities of E-harpagoside and 8-O-E-p-methoxycinnamoylharpagide (MCA-Hg) isolated from Scrophularia buergeriana were evaluated in scopolamine-induced amnesic mice by theExpand

Retinoid‐mediated inhibition of interleukin‐12 production in mouse macrophages suppresses Th1 cytokine profile in CD4+ T cells
Interleukin‐12 (IL‐12) plays a central role in the immune system by driving the immune response towards T helper 1 (Th1) type responses characterized by high IFN‐γ and low IL‐4 production. In thisExpand

Presenilin 1 gene mutation (M139I) in a patient with an early-onset Alzheimer’s disease: clinical characteristics and genetic identification
Mutations in the presenilin 1 (PSEN1) gene are more commonly identified as genetic causes of early-onset familial Alzheimer’s disease than mutations in the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and theExpand

Lectins isolated from Korean mistletoe (Viscum album coloratum) induce apoptosis in tumor cells.
Cytotoxic lectins (KML-C) were isolated from an extract of Korean mistletoe [Viscum album C. (coloratum)] by affinity chromatography on a hydrolysed Sepharose 4B column, and the chemical andExpand
