To investigate the functional role of renal intrinsic antioxidant enzymes (AOEs), the levels of AOE activities in isolated glomeruli and the changes in renal function to oxidant insults were assessed in normal control rats (NC, N = 23) and rats subjected to 30-minutes of complete renal ischemia for three days (day-3, N = 20) or six days (day-6, N = 23)(More)
Members of the Puf family of RNA-binding proteins from Drosophila, Caenorhabditis elegans, and Dictyostelium are known to function as translational repressors. To identify mammalian proteins that might regulate posttranscriptional gene expression, we have characterized a novel murine Puf protein, PUM2. Pum2 transcripts were expressed in all murine tissues(More)
Cultured rat glomerular mesangial and epithelial cells and bovine glomerular endothelial cells were exposed to various concentrations of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Mesangial cells treated with 10 to 100 microM H2O2 for 24 hours showed a two- to ninefold increase in Mn-SOD mRNA expression associated with significantly (P < 0.005) increased Mn-SOD activity(More)
The present study describes a genome-wide method for biallelic mutagenesis in mammalian cells. Novel poly(A) gene trap vectors, which contain features for direct cloning vector-cell fusion transcripts and for post-entrapment genome engineering, were used to generate a library of 979 mutant ES cells. The entrapment mutations generally disrupted gene(More)
