The stimulation of inositol phosphate generation by bombesin and GTP analogues was studied in Swiss 3T3 cells permeabilized by electroporation. Bombesin-stimulated inositol phosphate generation is potentiated by guanosine 5'-[gamma-thio]triphosphate (GTP[S]) and inhibited by guanosine 5'-[beta-thio]diphosphate at all peptide concentrations tested, with no(More)
The complete DNA sequence of the human polyomavirus AS virus (ASV) is presented. Although ASV can be differentiated antigenically from the other human polyomaviruses (BK and JC viruses), it shares 94.9% homology at the nucleotide level with the Dunlop strain of BK virus. Differences found in ASV relative to BK virus include the absence of tandem repeats in(More)
We examined the response of hybrid poplar to elevated CO2 in contrasting growth environments: controlled environment chamber (CE). open-top chamber (OTC) and poplar free air CO2 enrichment (POPFACE) in order to compare short versus long-term effects and to determine whether generalisations in response are possible for this fast growing tree. Leaf growth,(More)
Phosphatidylcholine-phospholipase D has been proposed to play a key role in the transduction of the proliferative responses of a wide range of mitogens and growth factors. We now report that the antigen receptors on T lymphocytes derived from human tonsillar or murine splenic preparations are coupled to phosphatidylcholine (PtdCho)-phospholipase D (PLD)(More)
Expression of oncogenic mutant p21 ras either in stably transformed NIH3T3 fibroblasts or transiently in COS-1 cells elevates the basal rate of inositol phosphate production. Additional mutations in the effector region or the carboxy terminal region which abolish transforming capacity on NIH3T3 cells block the effect of oncogenic mutant p21 ras on basal(More)
Recombinant DNA constructed from unit length BK virus DNA and from several defective viral forms was cloned in Escherichia coli HB101. The cloned unit length BK virus DNA retained its infectivity for human embryonic kidney cells, whereas the cloned defective DNA showed no infectivity. Restriction endonuclease digestion of cloned defective DNA and purified(More)
1-Stearoyl-2-arachidonoylglycerol (SAG) kinase was identified in the particulate fraction of pig testes. This activity was enriched by hydroxyapatite and blue dye chromatography. The enzyme was selective for polyunsaturated diradylglycerol species and activity was not modulated by other diradylglycerol species or sphingomyelin metabolites. Further(More)
