NH2-terminal amino acid sequence obtained from a UDP-GalNAc:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyl-transferase (GalNAc-transferase) isolated from bovine colostrum was used for the construction of synthetic oligonucleotide primers. Subsequent polymerase chain reaction and library screenings of a bovine intestine cDNA library produced seven positive clones. The(More)
We attempted to identify a locus for schizophrenia and related disorders in 24 nuclear families of schizophrenic probands using a predefined classification system for affected cases that included those disorders most clearly identified as sharing a genetic relationship with schizophrenia--schizoaffective disorder and schizotypal personality disorder.(More)
The CD60 antigen is expressed on a majority of T cells in autoimmune lesions, and anti-CD60 can activate T lymphocytes. CD60 has been defined as the GD3 ganglioside, and subsequently as the 9-O-acetylated form of GD3. However, other evidence suggests that anti-CD60 recognizes a glycoprotein or family of glycoproteins expressed by T lymphocytes. The current(More)
The N-linked oligosaccharide structures on bee venom phospholipase A2 were investigated. The oligosaccharides on purified phospholipase A2 were released by hydrazinolysis and labeled in vitro by reduction with NaB3H4. Following purification, the labeled oligosaccharides were characterized by size exclusion chromatography in combination with digestion with(More)
In capacitors for applications at temperatures of 150°C or above, such as automotive under-the-hood electronics and power electronics, a robust dielectric material is necessary. In traditional X8R ceramic capacitors (EIA specification, ΔC/C within ±15% between −55°C and +150°C compared that at 25°C), the dielectric material is designed for applications up(More)
The design and performance of a simple fluorescence cell for laser-spectrometric studies of metal vapors at elevated temperatures (T </=1000 K) are described. The cell is operated with Na as a radiator in a heat bath of noble gas perturbers. The gas temperature and metal vapor density in the fluorescence zone are obtained using a variant of a well-known(More)
