To clarify the peritubular mechanism for renal handling of plasma glutathione (GSH), variation of GSH levels in plasma, urine, kidney and liver was examined after intravenous administration of GSH to three groups of animals; control, acivicin-treated and rats treated with buthionine sulfoximine (BSO). Treatment of animals with BSO, a potent inhibitor of de(More)
β-D-galactofuranose (Galf) is a component of polysaccharides and glycoconjugates and its transferase has been well analyzed. However, no β-D-galactofuranosidase (Galf-ase) gene has been identified in any organism. To search for a Galf-ase gene we screened soil samples and discovered a strain, identified as a Streptomyces species by the 16S ribosomal RNA(More)
Previously, we reported that GfsA is a novel galactofuranosyltransferase involved in the biosynthesis of O-glycan, the proper maintenance of fungal morphology, the formation of conidia and anti-fungal resistance in Aspergillus nidulans and A. fumigatus (Komachi Y et al., 2013. GfsA encodes a novel galactofuranosyltransferase involved in biosynthesis of(More)
