Arginine kinases (AKs) isolated from the adductor muscle of the clams Solen strictus and Corbicula japonica have relative molecular masses of 80 kDa as estimated by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) in contrast to the 40 kDa AKs found in Mollusca and Arthropoda. The cDNAs encoding Solen and Corbicula AKs have open reading(More)
Glucocorticoids are known regulators of the cell cycle, normally exerting an anti-proliferative effect. We have previously shown that glucocorticoids stimulate expression of p57(Kip2), a member of the Cip/Kip family of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors which, in some cell types, may account for the anti-proliferative responses seen after glucocorticoid(More)
