Using an affinity matrix in which a recombinant glypican-Fc fusion protein expressed in 293 cells was coupled to protein A-Sepharose, we have isolated from rat brain at least two proteins that were detected by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis as a single 200-kDa silver-stained band, from which 16 partial peptide sequences were obtained by(More)
The ATP2 gene, coding for the beta subunit of the mitochondrial F1-ATPase, was cloned from nine independent isolates of chemically mutagenized yeast. Seven different mutant alleles were identified. In one case the mutation occurs in the mitochondrial targeting sequence (M1I). The remaining six mutations map to the mature part of the beta subunit protein and(More)
The Bacillus thuringiensis insecticidal crystal protein CryIIA has both high mosquito activity and gypsy moth activity; in contrast CryIIB, which is 87% homologous, displays no mosquito activity and has a three-fold lower gypsy moth activity. The regions responsible for specificity against gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar) and mosquito (Aedes aegypti) larvae(More)
OBJECTIVE To report on adverse reactions associated with amiodarone and propylthiouracil. CASE SUMMARY A 64-year-old female with atrial fibrillation and nodular goiter progressed to overt thyrotoxicosis after receiving therapy with amiodarone 200 mg/day for less than 12 weeks. Thyroid scan revealed a hyperfunctioning nodule in the left lobe, while(More)
Total RNA was extracted from adult Boophilus microplus. RT-PCR was used to amplify the gene and the fragment was subcloned into the expression vector pET-28a. The cloned gene was expressed in E. coli Rosseta (DE3), induced by IPTG, and identified by SDS-PAGE. The results showed that the triosephosphate isomerase (tim) gene of B. microplus has 750bp and(More)
To examine the binding of Bacillus thuringiensis delta-endotoxins, CryIAa, CryIAb, and CryIAc, to Lymantria dispar (gypsy moth) brush border membrane vesicles (BBMV), saturation kinetic analyses were conducted according to a two-step interaction scheme [formula: see text] for delta-endotoxin binding to BBMV, rather than the one-step reversible binding(More)
Wnt family members are critical in developmental processes and have been shown to promote carcinogenesis when ectopically expressed in the mouse mammary gland. The gene expression pattern mediated by Wnt is pivotal for these diverse responses. The Wnt pathway has been conserved among different species. Genetic studies have shown that Wnt effects are(More)
Hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) is an intracellular lipase that plays an important role in the hydrolysis of triacylglycerol in adipose tissue. HSL has been shown to interact with adipocyte lipid-binding protein (ALBP), a member of the family of intracellular lipid-binding proteins that bind fatty acids and other hydrophobic ligands. The current studies have(More)
Type III protein-arginine methyltransferase from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (RMT2) was expressed in Escherichia coli and purified to apparent homogeneity. The cytosolic, ribosomal, and ribosome salt wash fractions from yeast cells lacking RMT2 were used as substrates for the recombinant RMT2. Using S-adenosyl-l-methionine as co-substrate, RMT2(More)
