Aqualysin I is a subtilisin-type serine protease which is secreted into the culture medium by Thermus aquaticus YT-1, an extremely thermophilic Gram-negative bacterium. The nucleotide sequence of the entire gene for aqualysin I was determined, and the deduced amino acid sequence suggests that aqualysin I is produced as a large precursor, consisting of at(More)
Aqualysin I is an alkaline serine protease which is secreted into the culture medium by Thermus aquaticus YT-1. Aqualysin I was purified, and its apparent relative molecular mass was determined to be 28 500. The enzyme contained four Cys residues (probably as two cystines), and its amino acids composition was similar to those of cysteine-containing serine(More)
Hans Christian Jacobaeus performed the first clinical laparoscopic surgery in Stockholm. This pioneering procedure was based on the animal experiments of Georg Kelling (1866-1945), a German physician from Dresden, who performed the first laparoscopic intervention in 1901 using a Nitz cystoscope in a dog. In 1910, Jacobaeus published his initial experiences(More)
Aqualysin I is a heat-stable alkaline serine protease produced by Thermus aquaticus YT-1. Aqualysin I comprises 281 amino acid residues and contains four cysteine residues. The cysteine residues seemed to form disulfide bonds in the molecule. Thus, the positions of the disulfide bonds were investigated. Disulfide bond-containing peptides were identified by(More)
Aqualysin I is an alkaline serine protease which is secreted into the culture medium by Thermus aquaticus YT-1, an extreme thermophile [Matsuzawa, H., Hamaoki, M. & Ohta, T. (1983) Agric. Biol. Chem. 47, 25-28]. The gene encoding aqualysin I was cloned into Escherichia coli using synthetic oligodeoxyribonucleotides as hybridization probes. The nucleotide(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to evaluate urodynamic findings in patients with infantile cerebral palsy (CP) and to correlate the findings with impaired motor function. METHODS We conducted a videourodynamic investigation on a highly select group of 29 patients (3-53 years). Motor function was assessed in each patient by the Gross Motor Function(More)
Already 94 years ago in 1910, Dr. Hans Christian Jacobaeus performed the first clinical laparoscopic surgery in Stockholm. His pioneering procedure was based on the animal experiments of Georg Kelling (1866-1945), a German physician from Dresden, who performed the first laparoscopic intervention in 1901 using a Nitze cystoscope in a dog. In 1910 Jacobaeus(More)
Guidelines for assisted procreation impose a special responsibility upon physicians for the health of the expected child because of their active role in inducing pregnancy. Therefore, careful clinical evaluation of both partners has to precede every application of these methods. Risks for the mother's health or the development of the child count as a(More)
The impact of minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of postoperative male incontinence has significantly improved in recent years. These techniques are based on the continuous increase in urethral resistance. This resistance can be readjusted with balloons placed paraurethrally or with readjustable suburethral slings. The success rates depend on(More)
In den letzten Jahren haben minimal-invasive Verfahren zur Behandlung der postoperativen Belastungsinkontinenz des Mannes zunehmend an Bedeutung gewonnen. Diese Verfahren führen zu einer konstanten Erhöhung des urethralen Widerstands, welcher in Abhängigkeit vom gewählten Verfahren nachjustiert werden kann. Der Behandlungserfolg ist bei allen Verfahren(More)
