Anthranilate synthase is involved in tryptophan (Trp) biosynthesis. Functional expression of subunit I from Arabidopsis (ASA1) was achieved in bacteria as a protein fused with glutathione S-transferase (GST). The active product was purified in a single step on a glutathione-Sepharose column. The Vmax (45 nmol min-1mg-1), the apparent K(M) for chorismate(More)
A standardized endosonographic numeric method has been developed for the detection of prostate cancer. Eighty-six men were examined with a 5-MHz, 96-element linear-array probe. Mean gray-scale amplitudes were produced by a semiautomatic method for periprostatic fat and regions of interest within the external portion of the prostate gland that were visually(More)
The neuropeptide processing enzyme carboxypeptidase E (CPE) (E.C.3.4.17.10) has been well studied in vertebrates but its presence in invertebrates has not yet been reported. CPE activity in insects is present in membrane-bound and soluble forms. The soluble CPE has been purified to homogeneity from the brain of the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta. It is a 57(More)
The biologic aggressiveness of palpable versus nonpalpable prostate cancer was evaluated in 666 patients studied with endosonography over a 24-month period. Biologic aggressiveness was defined by a combined histologic and grade-stage category score. In 314 patients suspected of having prostate cancer 328 biopsies were performed. Carcinoma was detected in 99(More)
A retrospective chart review analyzed the effect of customized nutrition on the incidence of pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH), gestational diabetes (GDM), and small- and large-for-gestational-age (SGA, LGA) neonates, examining consecutive deliveries between January 1, 2011, and Decem ber 31, 2012, at a low-risk community hospital. The population was(More)
