Mutation screening of the major autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) locus, PKD1, has proved difficult because of the large transcript and complex reiterated gene region. We have developed methods, employing long polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and specific reverse transcription-PCR, to amplify all of the PKD1 coding area. The gene was(More)
Grape pomace is a potential source of natural antioxidant and antimicrobial agents. Phenolic compounds, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties of pomace extracts from four Virginia-grown grape varieties were investigated. White grape pomaces had higher (P < 0.05) solvent extraction yield than red varieties. Concentrations of total phenolic (TPC), total(More)
The genes for the large and small subunits of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) from Anacystis nidulans have been expressed in Escherichia coli under the control of the lac promoter to produce active enzyme. The enzyme can be purified from the cells to yield up to 200 mg Rubisco/l cultured bacteria, and is indistinguishable from the(More)
Dye-ligand affinity chromatography is performed with an adsorbent consisting of a solid support matrix to which a dye has been cova-lently bonded. The protein mixture is passed through a packed bed of adsorbent that selectively binds proteins that are able to interact with the immobilized dye. Nonbound proteins are washed from the adsorbent bed and bound(More)
Penicillin amidase was coupled to a periodate-oxidised dextran by reductive alkylation in the presence of sodium cyanoborohydride. A loss of activity (25%) was observed but the conjugate enzyme dextran was more thermostable than the native enzyme. Native and dextran-conjugated penicillin amidase were immobilised on amino activated silica (Promaxon,(More)
