In the post-genomic era, one of the challenges and a source of competition is the development of high-throughput, large-scale and low-cost eukaryotic cDNA cloning and expression systems. The baculovirus expression system is the most popular one and plays an important role in the high-level expression of eukaryotic proteins. In the present study, a(More)
Clozapine was oxidized to a reactive intermediate by HOCI, which is the major oxidant produced by activated neutrophils. A mass spectrum was obtained of this reactive intermediate by using a flow system in which the reactants were fed into a mixing chamber and the products flowed directly into a Sciex API III mass spectrometer. The intermediate was observed(More)
Ticlopidine is associated with a relatively high incidence of agranulocytosis and aplastic anemia. We have shown that other drugs associated with agranulocytosis are metabolized to reactive metabolites by activated human neutrophils or by HOCl, which is the major oxidant produced by activated neutrophils. We set out to test the hypothesis that ticlopidine(More)
5-Aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) is an agent widely used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. 5-ASA has been shown to be a potential scavenger of the oxidants, such as hypochlorous acid (HOCl), that are released by neutrophils present in inflammatory bowel disease. We studied the oxidation of 5-ASA by HOCl and characterized the reaction pathway(More)
