BACKGROUND Patients diagnosed with metastatic cancer have almost uniformly poor prognoses. The treatments available for patients with disseminated disease are usually not curative and have side effects that limit the therapy that can be given. A treatment that is selectively toxic to tumors would maximize the beneficial effects of therapy and minimize side(More)
We describe a case of septic arthritis in a child with no apparent predisposing conditions. Salmonella virchow was isolated from her knee and faeces, both isolates being identical except for the latter's resistance to ampicillin. Evidence is presented for the acquisition of ampicillin resistance in vivo, including the demonstration of the R plasmid and its(More)
Microsomal fractions isolated from rat corpus striatum catalyze the oxidation of thiobenzamide to the sulfoxide. The rate of thiobenzamide sulfoxidation is 6.9 +/- 4.8 nmol(min)-1 (mg microsomal protein)-1. The reaction is inhibited by an excess of sulfur- and nitrogen-containing substrates for the microsomal flavin-containing monooxygenase. These(More)
Low-molecular-weight chromium-binding substance (LMWCr), also known as chromodulin, is a chromium-binding oligopeptide proposed to have a function in chromium transport and insulin signaling in mammals. In this work, LMWCr has been isolated and purified for the first time from non-mammalian sources: chicken and American alligator. Milligram quantities of(More)
Rat hepatic microsomal and 100,000 g supernatant fractions catalyzed an NADH- and FMN-dependent reduction of amine oxides. Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) served as a model for the amine oxide reductase located in rat hepatic 100,000 g supernatant fraction. The HRP-catalyzed reaction displayed saturation kinetics with respect to NADH and the amine oxide(More)
