MDCK cells expressing the polymeric immunoglobulin (poly-Ig) receptor, cocultured with IgA-producing hybridoma cells, transported dimeric IgA (dIgA) from the basolateral into the lumenal compartment, where it was recovered as secretory component-dIgA complexes. The tail of the receptor was phosphorylated on serines 664 and 726. Each serine was mutated to(More)
The eukaryotic cell cycle is regulated by the sequential activation of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs). CDK activation is dependent on cyclin binding and phosphorylation of a conserved threonine (T161 in Cdc2) mediated by the CDK-activating kinase CAK. A CDK-related kinase, MO15 (ref. 10), has been identified as the catalytic subunit of CAK (refs 11-13).(More)
Impairment in semantic processing occurs early in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and differential impact on subtypes of semantic relations have been reported, yet there is little data on the neuroanatomic basis of these deficits. Patients with mild AD and healthy controls underwent 3 functional MRI auditory stimulation tasks requiring semantic or phonological(More)
The purpose of this study was to characterize the neuropsychological profiles of adult patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) alone and ADHD with active comorbid depression, and to evaluate changes in the neuropsychological profile in these two groups following a trial of methylphenidate. Forty patients with ADHD were classified into(More)
Nodule senescence is one aspect of nitrogen fixation that is important to study from the perspective of improving the host-bacteroid interaction. In winged bean nodules, a 21-kilodalton protein is specifically expressed when senescence begins. Using subcellular fractionation, we observed that this plant protein interacts with the bacteroids. Microsequencing(More)
These studies were designed to examine the effects of "hunger" induced by food deprivation, 2-deoxy-D-glucose (200 mg/kg), or insulin (2 U/kg) and "thirst" induced by water deprivation, sodium chloride (4 M), or polyethylene glycol (5 ml of 30% w/w) on lateral hypothalamic self-stimulation in 40 male Long-Evans rats. Changes in self-stimulation were(More)
We have characterized binding activities in yeast which recognise the T-rich strand of the yeast ARS consensus element and have purified two of these to homogeneity. One (ACBP-60) is detectable in both nuclear and whole cell extracts, while the other (ACBP-67) is apparent only after fractionation of extracts by heparin-sepharose chromatography. The major(More)
In a series of two experiments using rats, the effect of glucoprivation, induced by 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) or insulin injections, on self-stimulation rate-frequency functions, was evaluated at two levels of current intensity. At the higher current intensity, neither insulin nor 2-DG produced a significant change in rate-frequency function parameters. At(More)
