Mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli gene (which encodes a protein called APC) are associated with the formation of intestinal polyps and colon cancers. To facilitate the functional study of APC we have isolated its Drosophila homolog (D-APC) by screening an expression library with an antibody against human APC. The isolated cDNA encodes a predicted(More)
P1-zeta-crystallin (P1-ZCr) is an oxidative stress-induced NADPH:quinone oxidoreductase in Arabidopsis thaliana, but its physiological electron acceptors have not been identified. We found that recombinant P1-ZCr catalyzed the reduction of 2-alkenals of carbon chain C(3)-C(9) with NADPH. Among these 2-alkenals, the highest specificity was observed for(More)
