Primary structure of human plasma glutathione peroxidase deduced from cDNA sequences.
Human plasma glutathione peroxidase (GSHPx) has been shown to be a selenium-containing enzyme immunologically distinct from cellular GSHPx. Oligonucleotide probes, based on the partial amino acidExpand

Adsorption of albumin on calcium hydroxylapatite
Abstract Adsorption of bovine serum albumin (BSA) on calcium hydroxylapatite (HAP) with different Ca/P molar ratios ranging from 1.55 to 1.70 and on HAP surface-modified by silicate and fluoride ionsExpand

Biochemical and immunological characterization of the DNA binding protein (RBP-J kappa) to mouse J kappa recombination signal sequence.
We have investigated whether J kappa recombination signal sequence (RS) binding protein (RBP-J kappa) has any partial catalytic activities involved in the VDJ recombination reaction, such asExpand

Kinetic and structural studies on the catalytic role of the aspartic acid residue conserved in copper amine oxidase.
Copper amine oxidase contains a post-translationally generated quinone cofactor, topa quinone (TPQ), which mediates electron transfer from the amine substrate to molecular oxygen. The overallExpand

Molecular cloning and nucleotide sequence of the gramicidin S synthetase 1 gene.
The entire gene for gramicidin S synthetase 1 (GS 1) was cloned into the plasmid vector pUC18, and the nucleotide sequences of the GS 1 gene and its flanking region were determined. The full-lengthExpand

N.m.r. study of interaction between sugar and peptide moieties in mucin-type model glycopeptides.
In order to investigate the structural properties of the sugar and peptide linkage region in glycoprotein, some glycopeptides were synthesized as a model for AFGP (antifreeze glycoprotein), which isExpand

Copurification and separation of beta-galactosidase and sialidase from porcine testis.
A soluble sialidase was copurified apparently as an enzyme complex with acid beta-galactosidase from porcine testis. The sialidase exhibited its maximum activity at acidic pH. It was efficientlyExpand

Purification of natural human interferon-gamma by antibody affinity chromatography: analysis of constituent protein species in the dimers.
A simple procedure for purifying human interferon-gamma from leukocytes was established, based on monoclonal antibody affinity chromatography. The recovery of interferon activity was essentiallyExpand

Structural insights into the substrate specificity of bacterial copper amine oxidase obtained by using irreversible inhibitors.
Copper amine oxidases (CAOs) catalyse the oxidation of various aliphatic amines to the corresponding aldehydes, ammonia and hydrogen peroxide. Although CAOs from various organisms share a highlyExpand
