Purification and cDNA cloning of porcine brain GDP-L-Fuc:N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminide alpha1-->6fucosyltransferase.
GDP-L-Fuc:N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminide alpha1-->6fucosyltransferase (alpha1-6FucT; EC, which catalyzes the transfer of fucose from GDP-Fuc to N-linked type complex glycopeptides, wasExpand
Total synthesis of peptide antibiotic nisin
Abstract Total synthesis of a lanthionine peptide nisin was successfully achieved for the first time by application of new methods for preparations of dehydroalanine and lanthionine moieties,Expand
Induction of human interleukin 1 by bacterial and synthetic lipid A
Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) are well known inducers of interleukin 1 (IL1). Here we show that synthetic heptaacyl Salmonella minnesota (compound 516) and synthetic E. coli type (compound 506) lipid A,Expand
Arthritis-inducing ability of a synthetic adjuvant, N-acetylmuramyl peptides, and bacterial disaccharide peptides related to different oil vehicles and their composition.
A synthetic adjuvant, N-acetylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutamine (MDP), failed to produce polyarthritis with a wide dose range in a water-in-oil emulsion of mineral oil such as liquid paraffin, Drakeol,Expand
Immunological analysis of the phosphorylation state of maize C4-form phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase with specific antibodies raised against a synthetic phosphorylated peptide.
The phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) isozyme involved in C4 photosynthesis is known to undergo reversible regulatory phosphorylation under illuminated conditions, thereby decreasing theExpand
Identity of a major 3-deoxyglucosone-reducing enzyme with aldehyde reductase in rat liver established by amino acid sequencing and cDNA expression.
We have purified a rat liver enzyme that catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of 3-deoxyglucosone (3-DG), a major intermediate in the Maillard reaction and a potent cross-linker responsible forExpand
The structure of an antibiotic, dityromycin
Dityromycin is a peptide antibiotic isolated from the culture broth of the soil microorganism, Streptomyces sp. strain No. AM-2504, showing activities against Bacillus, Corynebacterium, andExpand
Vaccination of experimental monkeys against Plasmodium falciparum: a possible safe adjuvant.
Owl monkeys (Aotus trivirgatus griseimembra) were effectively immunized against a human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. Two injections of antigen, primarily mature segmenters with fullyExpand
Macrophage-stimulating effect of a synthetic muramyl dipeptide and its adjuvant-active and -inactive analogs for the production of T-cell activating monokines.
Abstract A synthetic muramyl dipeptide (MDP), which has the minimal adjuvant-active structure that can substitute for Mycobacterium in complete Freund's adjuvant, could stimulate peritonealExpand
