1. The activities of fatty acid synthetase, acyl-CoA synthetase, glycerol phosphate acyltransferase and phosphatidate phosphatase were measured in the mammary glands of rabbits from day 16 of pregnancy to day 15 of post partum. 2. There were significant correlations between the increases in activities of these enzymes during this period. This was the case(More)
1. A new assay system is described for monoglyceride acyltransferase (acylglycerol palmitoyltransferase, EC 2.3.1.22) in which palmitoyl-CoA is generated from palmitoyl-(-)-carnitine. 2. With the microsomal fraction from homogenates of guinea-pig intestinal mucosa, the V(max.) of this enzyme decreased with different acyl acceptors in the order(More)
Inhibition of return (IOR) is an attentional effect that has been much researched in the spatial domain, whereby people are slower to respond to stimuli presented in a previously attended location. Recently, Chao (2010) reported that participants were slower to respond to a negative schematic facial target compared with a positive facial target if they had(More)
1. The activities of some enzymes of glycerolipid synthesis were measured in homogenates obtained from the intestinal scrapings of 62-66-day foetuses and 2- and 8-day-old guinea pigs. 2. The ratio of protein concentration/DNA concentration was significantly higher (P greater than 0.001) in homogenized tissue from the neonatal compared with the foetal guinea(More)
