Purification and characterization of a lipase from Pseudomonas aeruginosa KKA-5 and its role in castor oil hydrolysis
An extracellular lipase (triacylglycerol acylhydrolase, EC from Pseudomonas aeruginosa KKA-5 hydrolyzed castor oil by 90%. Purification of this castor oil-hydrolyzing lipase includedExpand
Properties of a novel D-stereospecific aminopeptidase from Ochrobactrum anthropi.
A novel aminopeptidase active toward D-amino acid-containing peptides, D-amino acid amides, and D-amino acid esters has been purified 2,800-fold to homogeneity from a bacterium Ochrobactrum anthropiExpand
Selective nitration of mitochondrial complex I by peroxynitrite: involvement in mitochondria dysfunction and cell death of dopaminergic SH-SY5Y cells
Summary. 3-Nitrotyrosine (3-NT) is a specific marker of protein nitration by peroxynitrite (ONOO−) produced from nitric oxide and superoxide. Increase in 3-NT containing protein (3-NT protein) wasExpand
An Alkaline D-Stereospecific Endopeptidase with β-Lactamase Activity from Bacillus cereus*
We purified a novel extracellular D-stereospecific endopeptidase, alkaline D-peptidase (D-stereospecific peptide hydrolase, EC 3.4.11.-), to homogeneity from the culture broth of the soil bacteriumExpand
Structural similarity of D-aminopeptidase to carboxypeptidase DD and beta-lactamases.
The gene for D-aminopeptidase (dap) has been isolated from the bacterium Ochrobactrum anthropi SCRC C1-38 [Asano, Y., Nakazawa, A., Kato, Y., & Kondo, K. (1989) J. Biol. Chem. 264, 14233-14239] andExpand
Characterization of lipopolysaccharides of polymyxin-resistant and polymyxin-sensitive Klebsiella pneumoniae O3.
Lipopolysaccharides isolated from the polymyxin-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae O3 mutant OM-5 and its polymyxin-sensitive parent LEN-1 were analyzed for chemical composition, and their lipid AExpand
Periarteritis of coronary arteries with severe eosinophilic infiltration. A new pathologic entity (eosinophilic periarteritis)?
A 40 year-old male presented symptoms of angina pectoris for about nine years and expired with symptoms of unstable angina, changing pattern at the terminal stage. At autopsy, both right and leftExpand
Transcardiac 8-iso-prostaglandin F(2 alpha)generation from acute myocardial infarction heart: insight into abrupt reperfusion and oxidant stress.
8-iso-prostaglandin F(2 alpha)(8-iso-PGF(2 alpha)), a representative isoprostane, has been reported to be a reliable marker for oxidant stress in vivo. To examine if 8-iso-PGF(2 alpha)is generated inExpand
Amino acid sequences of the cardiac L‐2A, L‐2B and gizzard 17 000‐M r light chains of chicken muscle myosin
Myosins separated from various vertebrate muscles contain 2 heavy chains of -200 000-M, and 4 light chains of -20 OOOllcl, [l-4]. In connection with a relationship between the light chain structureExpand
Inhibition of oxidation of low density lipoprotein by troglitazone.
The effect of a new oral hypoglycemic agent troglitazone, (+/-)-5-[4-(6-hydroxy-2,5,7,8-tetramethylchroman-2-yl-methoxy)benz yl]-2,4-thiazolidinedione as an antioxidant against the freeExpand
