Estrogen receptor (ER) levels, formation of 3'-phosphoadenosine-5'phosphosulfate (PAPS), and sulfate transfer to estradiol-178, have been determined in 62 human primary carcinoma cytosol preparations. Whilst no differences between ER positive and ER negative tumors were found in the synthesis of [35S]PAPS, formation of estradiol-3-[35S]sulfate catalysed by(More)
Estrogen sulfotransferase (EC 2.8.2.4) activity and estrogen receptor levels were measured in 32 human primary breast cancer cytosol preparations. Two types of tumors were identified: type 1, in which estrogen sulfotransferase levels were low (less than 40 pmol 17 beta-estradiol 3-sulfate formed per mg protein per 2 hr) and were independent of(More)
A positive correlation between the expression of estrogen sulphotransferase (EC 2.8: 2.4) and the estrogen receptor (ER) in human breast cancer tissues was previously demonstrated. We have now established that a similar correlation exists between the expression of hydroxysteroid sulphotransferase (EC 2.8: 2.2) and ER in such tissues. Enzyme activity was(More)
Allatostatin (AST)-like immunoreactivity (IR) was localized in the eyestalk of Penaeus monodon by immunohistochemistry using four anti-AST antibodies. Depending on the antisera, AST-like immunoreactivity was detected in neuronal bodies of the lamina ganglionalis, cell bodies anterior to the medulla externa and cell bodies on the anterior and posterior of(More)
This study defined structural requirements for organophosphorous and methylcarbamate insecticides for altering the L-kynurenine pathway of L-tryptophan metabolism in mice. Kynurenine formamidase inhibition by organophosphorous acid triesters and methylcarbamates is the proposed primary event resulting in increase in xanthurenic acid urinary excretion and(More)
Using the DMBA-induced mammary tumour as a model, the effect of hormone manipulation on steroid sulphurylation and on oxidative and reductive metabolism has been investigated. Oestradiol-17 beta, or oestradiol-17 beta + progesterone, administered to oophorectomized animals, had no effect on adenosine-3'-phosphate-5'-phosphosulphate formation in the tumours.(More)
It was previously demonstrated that a correlation existed between estrogen receptor (ER) status and levels of estrogen sulfotransferase in human mammary cancer, high levels being associated with ER-positive and low levels with ER-negative tumors. We have now examined these same parameters, along with progesterone receptor (PGR) status, in 44 primary human(More)
Twenty-two isolates of Cymbidium mosaic virus (CyMV) were isolated from 35 orchid plants suspected of being infected with CyMV. Among the three methods used for detecting CyMV, immunoelectron microscopy (IEM-1) was shown to be the most sensitive method, being able to detect the virus in 71.43% of suspected CyMV-infected plants while the electron microscopic(More)
Diazinon [O,O-diethyl O-(2-isopropyl-6-methyl-4- pyrimidinyl)phosphorothioate] altered the formation of several L-tryptophan metabolites associated with the L-kynurenine pathway in mice. Liver kynurenine formamidase was inhibited almost completely by diazinon (10 mg/kg). The enzyme inhibition resulted in reduced L-kynurenine biosynthesis in livers with a(More)
