Metazoan cellulase genes from termites: intron/exon structures and sites of expression.
Endogenous endo-beta-1,4-glucanase (EGase, EC cDNAs were cloned from representatives of the termite families Termitidae and Rhinotermitidae. These EGases are all composed of 448 amino acidsExpand
Cellulose Digestion in the Wood-Eating Higher Termite, Nasutitermes takasagoensis (Shiraki): Distribution of Cellulases and Properties of Endo-β-1,4-gIucanase
Abstract β-Giucosidase ‘EC’ and endo-β-1,4-gIucanase ‘EC’ activities were measured in the wood-eating higher termite Nasutitermes takasagoensis. β-Glucosidase activity was presentExpand
Oxidation of phenylethanolamine and octopamine by type A and type B monoamine oxidase. Effect of substrate concentration.
Abstract Phenylethanolamine (PEOA) and octopamine (OA) were characterized as substrates for type A and type B monoamine oxidase (MAO) at various substrate concentrations, using rat brainExpand
Purification of cathepsin D from rabbit skeletal muscle and its action towards myofibrils.
Cathepsin D (EC was purified from rabbit skeletal muscle using acetone-dried muscle powder as starting material. After the acetone-dried powder was extracted with 0.2 mM ATP, the extractExpand
Modification of a single tryptophan residue in human Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase by peroxynitrite in the presence of bicarbonate.
Human recombinant Cu,Zn-SOD was reacted with peroxynitrite in a reaction mixture containing 150 mM potassium phosphate buffer (pH 7.4) 25 mM sodium bicarbonate, and 0.1 mM diethylenetriamineExpand
A structural study of calcium-binding equine lysozyme by two-dimensional 1H-NMR.
Since 1H-NMR spectra of the calcium bound form (holo) and the calcium free form (apo) of equine lysozyme have an overall similarity, the folded structure of apo equine lysozyme seems to be similar toExpand
Trace levels of pyrroloquinoline quinone in human and rat samples detected by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.
A detailed procedure for the assay of free pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) in human and rat samples by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) has been established with stable-isotopic PQQ asExpand
A fluorometric assay for total diamines in human urine using human placental diamine oxidase.
The detailed procedure for a new fluorometric assay for total diamines in human urine is described. The diamines were purified from the urine by cation-exchange chromatography and incubated withExpand
Oxidation of beta-phenylethylamine by both types of monoamine oxidase: effects of substrate concentration and pH.
Abstract β-Phenylethylamine (PEA) was characterized as substrate for both type A and type B monoamine oxidase (MAO) in rat brain mitochondria at different substrate concentrations and at differentExpand
Effect of pressure on the mechanism of hydrolysis of maltotetraose, maltopentaose, and maltohexose catalyzed by porcine pancreatic alpha-amylase.
Pressure effects on the time course of the products' composition accompanying the hydrolysis of maltooligosaccharides [maltotetraose (G4) maltopentaose (G5), and maltohexaose (G6)] catalyzed byExpand
