Comparison of complete amino acid sequences and receptor-binding properties among 13 serotypes of hemagglutinins of influenza A viruses.
We determined the sequences of 7 serotypes (H4, H6, H8, H9, H11, H12, and H13) of hemagglutinin (HA) genes, which have not been reported so far. The coding regions consisted of 1692 nucleotides inExpand
Identification of a point mutation in the catalytic domain of the protooncogene c-kit in peripheral blood mononuclear cells of patients who have mastocytosis with an associated hematologic disorder.
Both stem cells and mast cells express c-kit and proliferate after exposure to c-kit ligand. Mutations in c-kit may enhance or interfere with the ability of c-kit receptor to initiate theExpand

Profound deficiency of a specific enzyme, galactocerebroside beta-galactosidase, has been demonstrated in the brains, liver, and spleen of three patients with Krabbe's globoid cell leucodystrophy.Expand
Molecular Cloning of a Novel Human Collectin from Liver (CL-L1)*
Collectins are a C-lectin family with collagen-like sequences and carbohydrate recognition domains. These proteins can bind to carbohydrate antigens of microorganisms and inhibit their infection byExpand
Mucopolysaccharidosis type IVA (Morquio A disease): clinical review and current treatment.
Mucopolysaccharidosis IVA (MPS IVA), also known as Morquio A, is a rare, autosomal recessive disorder caused by a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme N-acetylgalatosamine-6-sulfate-sulfatase (GALNS),Expand
Microbial Diversity in Inactive Chimney Structures from Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Systems
Massive chimney structures, which are characteristic of many hydrothermally active zones, harbor diverse microbial communities containing both thermophilic and hyperthermophilic microbes. However,Expand
Comparative studies on the catalytic roles of cytochrome P450 2C9 and its Cys- and Leu-variants in the oxidation of warfarin, flurbiprofen, and diclofenac by human liver microsomes.
S-Warfarin 7-hydroxylation, S-flurbiprofen 4'-hydroxylation, and diclofenac 4'-hydroxylation activities were determined in liver microsomes of 30 humans of which 19 were wild-type (Arg144.Ile359), 8Expand
The Membrane-type Collectin CL-P1 Is a Scavenger Receptor on Vascular Endothelial Cells*
Collectins are a family of C-type lectins that have collagen-like sequences and carbohydrate recognition domains (CRD). They are involved in host defense through their ability to bind to carbohydrateExpand
Mouse homologue of coq7/clk-1, longevity gene in Caenorhabditis elegans, is essential for coenzyme Q synthesis, maintenance of mitochondrial integrity, and neurogenesis.
coq7/clk-1 was isolated from a long-lived mutant of Caenorhabditis elegans, which showed sluggish behavior and an extended life span. Mouse coq7 is homologous to Saccharomyces cerevisiae coq7/cat5Expand
Elastase inhibitor elafin is a new type of proteinase inhibitor which has a transglutaminase-mediated anchoring sequence termed "cementoin".
Elafin was shown to be a new type of proteinase inhibitor which has an anchoring sequence. Human elafin, a potent inhibitor specific for elastase and proteinase 3, has a unique repeating sequence inExpand
