We recently identified gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) as a novel bone-resorbing factor. The present study was undertaken to determine whether GGT is a marker of bone resorption in two genetic models of hyper- and hypo-function of osteoclasts, as well as in postmenopausal women with accelerated bone resorption, using type I collagen N-telopeptide (NTX) and(More)
Overproduction of microsomal cytochrome P450Alk1 (P450Alk1) of Candida maltosa in Saccharomyces cerevisiae resulted in an extensive proliferation of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and induction of Kar2p and Pdi1p. The ire1 null mutation severely suppressed ER proliferation, reduced the level of functional P450Alk1, and showed no induction of these ER(More)
(CYP52A4) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Using the mRNA differential display technique, six genes were found to be up-regulated: ASN2, MDJ1, YLR194c, YNL208w, YER175, and YGL121c. Genes coding for Dur1.2p, Dal2p, and Sps19p were down-regulated. Two strongly induced genes, which were found to accommodate the peroxisome box (YLR194c) and a 10-bp consensus(More)
