The nucleotide sequence of gene PBI, the putative translational product of which is homologous to salivary proline-rich protein P-B, has been determined. PBI is 6.4 kb long and contains 3 exons. PBI appears to code for the precursor of a proline-rich protein which we have designated P-B1. The P-B1 precursor is composed of 134 amino acid residues including(More)
We have developed a two-dimensional (2D-) gel system of zymography and reverse zymography for the detection and characterization of proteases and protease inhibitors. Isoelectric focusing (IEF) agarose gels with pH gradients were employed for separation in the first-dimension and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)-polyacrylamide gel copolymerized with gelatin(More)
Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (RFLP) related to cystatin gene (CST) family was detected in the Japanese population by using restriction enzyme Sac I. A polymorphic site, located at 0.9 kb from the 3' end of the CST2 gene, revealed a two allele polymorphism with band sizes of 3.5 kb and 8.3 kb by hybridization with probe including exon 2 of the(More)
