Phospholipase D (PLD)-mediated transphosphatidylation of squid skin lecithin with L-serine was examined to prepare docosahexaenoic acid-containing phosphatidylserine (DHA-PS). When a biphasic system with organic solvent and 0.2 M acetate buffer (pH 5.5) was used, PS synthesis was significantly affected by the amount of 3.4 M L-serine-containing acetate(More)
Both testosterone (T) and 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) significantly increased colony-stimulating factor (CSF) as well as colony-inhibitory factor (CIF) in the submandibular gland (SMG) in female mice. The CIF activity was completely inactivated by heating at 60 degrees C for 15 min, while the CSF activity was stable against the heat treatment. It was(More)
Apolipoprotein A-I was released from human HDL particles by treatment with 8 M urea, and the free apolipoprotein exhibited identical antigenicity and the same low mobility as purified apolipoprotein A-I in electrophoresis. Treatment of serum with 8 M urea enabled enabled quantitation of apolipoprotein A-I by single radial immunodiffusion assay, as judged by(More)
A case of mast cell sarcoma in a 5-month-old Holstein female calf is described. Macroscopically, enlargement of the spleen, lymph nodes, tonsils and kidneys was noted, and there were tumor masses in the neck region and on the pleura and peritoneum. The pericardium and uterine and ureter walls were also involved by tumor. Most neoplastic cells had(More)
Resident peritoneal cells of monocyte/macrophage lineage were collected by lavage of mice and incubated in vitro for 1-3 d in a culture medium containing various concentrations of macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF). Stimulation of the cells by zymosan showed that the potency of producing luminol-dependent chemiluminescence had been markedly(More)
