Structures and physiological roles of 13 integral lipids of bovine heart cytochrome c oxidase
All 13 lipids, including two cardiolipins, one phosphatidylcholine, three phosphatidylethanolamines, four phosphatidylglycerols and three triglycerides, were identified in a crystalline bovine heartExpand
Evidence for the Covalent Binding of SHAP, Heavy Chains of Inter-α-Trypsin Inhibitor, to Hyaluronan (*)
We previously showed that serum-derived 85-kDa proteins (SHAPs, serum-derived hyaluronan associated proteins) are firmly bound to hyaluronan (HA) synthesized by cultured fibroblasts. SHAPs were thenExpand
Cloning of glycerol‐3‐phosphate dehydrogenase genes (ZrGPD1 and ZrGPD2) and glycerol dehydrogenase genes (ZrGCY1 and ZrGCY2) from the salt‐tolerant yeast Zygosaccharomyces rouxii
The ZrGPD1 and ZrGPD2 genes encoding putative glycerol‐3‐phosphate dehydrogenases were isolated from the salt‐tolerant yeast, Zygosaccharomyces rouxii. Both genes are homologous to GPD1 ofExpand
A nonsense mutation of PEPD in four Amish children with prolidase deficiency
Encoded by the peptidase D (PEPD) gene located at 19q12‐q13.11, prolidase is a ubiquitous cytosolic enzyme that catalyzes hydrolysis of oligopeptides with a C‐terminal proline or hydroxyproline. WeExpand
Proteomics profiling of the cone photoreceptor cell line, 661W.
Cultured retinal cells are convenient experimental systems offering great advantages in the assessment of numerous retinal processes. The two most important advantages are the ease of evaluation ofExpand
Cell type-dependent gene regulation by Staufen2 in conjunction with Upf1
BackgroundStaufen2 (Stau2), a double-stranded RNA-binding protein, is a component of neuronal RNA granules, which are dendritic mRNA transport machines. Although Stau2 is thought to be involved inExpand
Detection of Catalase as a major protein target of the lipid peroxidation product 4-HNE and the lack of its genetic association as a risk factor in SLE
BackgroundSystemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multifactorial disorder characterized by the presence of autoantibodies. We and others have implicated free radical mediated peroxidative damage inExpand
Structural and Immunochemical Characterization of aNeisseria gonorrhoeae Epitope Defined by a Monoclonal Antibody 2C7; the Antibody Recognizes a Conserved Epitope on Specific Lipo-oligosaccharides in
Lipo-oligosaccharides (LOS) produced byNeisseria gonorrhoeae are important antigenic and immunogenic components of the outer membrane complex. Previously, we showed that murine monoclonal antibodyExpand
Isolation and characterization of Diels–Alder adducts of C60 with anthracene and cyclopentadiene
The cycloadducts of C60 and typical dienes have been isolated by HPLC, and the anthracene and Cyclopentadiene adducts characterized by FAB mass and NMR spectroscopy.
Mass spectrometric evidence for a disulfide bond in aequorin regeneration
Tryptic digests of purified recombinant apoaequorin were analyzed, before and after reduction with DTT, by fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry. The results showed that apoaequorin contains aExpand
