The first enzyme in the formation of GDP-L-fucose from GDP-D-mannose, which forms a GDP-4-keto sugar intermediate, was purified to homogeneity from cell extracts of Klebsiella pneumoniae. During purification, the enzyme was found to be highly activated by NADP. It was proven that the pyridine nucleotide coenzyme of the enzyme was NADP, not NAD, which(More)
Oxidative inactivation of AMP deaminase and its protection were analyzed under the in situ conditions of yeast cells. AMP deaminase was readily inactivated by an exposure to hydrogen peroxide plus copper in permeabilized yeast cells. Addition of ascorbic acid further enhanced the inactivation of the enzyme, suggesting the hydroxyl radical produced by the(More)
CD226 (DNAM-1) is an adhesion molecule involved in NK and T cell-mediated cytotoxicity against certain tumors. Here, we have identified the human poliovirus receptor-related (PRR) family members CD155 [poliovirus receptor (PVR)] and CD112 (nectin-2/PRR-2) as the ligands for human CD226. Ectopic expression of human CD155 and/or CD112 rendered mouse BW5147 T(More)
