Neurocalcin (NC), a neuron-specific EF-hand Ca2+-binding protein, purified from bovine brain [Terasawa, Nakano, Kobayashi and Hidaka (1992) J. Biol. Chem. 267, 19596-19599] contains multiple isoforms. We previously cloned NCdelta from bovine brain and showed high expression in neuronal tissues [Okazaki, Watanabe, Ando, Hagiwara, Terasawa and Hidaka (1992)(More)
To isolate an S-adenosylmethionine (SAM)-accumulating yeast strain and to develop a more efficient method of producing SAM, we screened methionine-resistant strains using the yeast deletion library of budding yeast and isolated 123 strains. The SAM content in 81 of the 123 strains was higher than that in the parental strain BY4742. We identified ADO1(More)
