Identification of five novel SLC3A1 (rBAT) gene mutations in Japanese cystinuria.
Five novel mutations in the rBAT gene have been identified in Japanese patients with cystinuria and a racial difference was not apparent in the position and frequency of the mutations. Expand
Binding to R 1881 (methyltrienolone) of proteins from human benign prostatic hypertrophy.
Results suggested that a part of the cytosolic protein which bound to R 1881 entered the nuclei where it bound to nuclear such components as dihydrotestosterone-binding protein. Expand
Androphilic proteins in cytosols of human benign prostatic hypertrophy.
To examine the properties of androphilic proteins in human benign prostatic hypertrophy, the binding capacity and affinity of the proteins were determined after acetone-treatment, ammonium sulfateExpand
Measurement of androgen receptor in cytosols from normal, benign hypertrophic and cancerous human prostates.
The binding of R 1881 in cytosols from the normal, benign hypertrophic and cancerous human prostates was examined, and the binding in the presence of triamcinolone acetonide exhibited the characteristics of androgen receptor. Expand
Dihydrotestosterone-binding protein in cytosols of normal and hypertrophic human prostates, and influence of estrogens and anti-androgens on the binding.
No distinct correlation was detected between proportion of glandular constituent and binding characteristics (Ka and maximum binding capacity) in the hypertrophic prostates. Expand
Progestin-binding protein in human benign prostatic hypertrophy.
Although nuclear extract by 0.4 M KCl showed R 1881 binding, the extract did not contain the R 5020-binding protein, and this suggested that the progestin-bindingprotein observed in the cytosols does not seem to be the steroid receptor. Expand
Partial purification of androgen receptor from hypertrophic human prostate.
For purification of androgen receptor from hypertrophic human prostate, solutions used for elution of androgen receptor from DNA Sepharose, affinity labeling of the receptor and ability of affinityExpand
Androphilic proteins in the human prostate
Maximum binding sites to dihydrotestosterone, R1881, and R5020 in cytosols were very similar among “normal” and pathological prostates except that dihy‐drotestosterone binding was higher in “ normal” prostates than in the pathological ones. Expand
Detection and identification of oxalate‐degrading bacteria in human feces
It is speculated that oxalate‐degrading bacteria decrease oxalates absorption from the intestines and their absence in the gastrointestinal tract correlates with the formation of calcium‐oxalate urolithiasis. Expand
Properties of androphilic proteins in cytosols of human benign prostatic hypertrophy.
It was observed that the chromatographic behavior of the androphilic protein in IgG fraction was changed after incubation with nuclei, and the binding of the complexes to chromatin seems to be of low affinity and nonsaturable. Expand
