Two Shaker-related potassium channel genes (termed tsha1 and tsha2) expressed in the CNS of trout were cloned and sequenced. The coding regions of both genes were not interrupted by introns and exhibited a high overall sequence similarity to other members of the Shaker subfamily. By computer-assisted sequence alignments, tsha1 was identified as a fish(More)
Incubation of [3H]-tyrosine methionine5-enkephalin (MET) with human brain preparations (100,000g supernatant; sections of the limbic system, thalamus, basal ganglia, cerebellum, and cortex) results in its rapid and complete degradation; over 95% of the initial labeled tyrosine is recovered as the free aminoacid within 10 min. Results show a considerable(More)
Secure and reliable computing remains an open problem. Just in the past year, security vulnerabilities continued to be discovered in widely-used applications , and remote attacks that take advantage of these vulnerabilities can cause an enormous amount of damage. Runtime monitoring is a promising approach for addressing a wide range of security and(More)
After 10-minute incubation of [3H]-tyrosine methionine-enkephalin (MET) with 100,000 x g supernatant from select brain regions of patients with chronic schizophrenia (n = 3), essentially all of the labeled tyrosine was recovered as the free amino acid. Initial velocity and half-life of MET degradation obtained from different brain areas (limbic system,(More)
Two shaker-related potassium channel transcripts (tsha1, tsha2) were identified in glial cells of trout central nervous system (CNS) by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-cloning and sequencing. While tsha1 was highly similar to the mammalian Kv1.2 subtype of potassium channels, tsha2 did not show a preferential sequence homology with a particular subtype of(More)
