An Inhibitor of Desoxyribonuclease in Human White Blood Cells and Bone Marrow Cells and its Relationship to Cellular Maturity.
TLDR
Studies suggest that there exists a relationship between the degree of cellular maturity and the amount of inhibitory activity per cell and the existence of a specific inhibitor of desoxyribonuclease is reported.
Studies on the role of deoxyribonuclease in T2 bacteriophage development.
Effect of procedures for the reduction of the nucleic acid content of SCP on the DNA content of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

TLDR
Analysis for DNA by the diphenylamine reaction now shows that even when autolysis (following heat shock) is prolonged to the point at which the cells lose 42% of dry matter and half their protein content, no DNA leaves the cells.
DEOXYRIBONUCLEASE ACTIVITY OF MICROCOCCI FROM CLINICAL SOURCES
TLDR
A correlation between DNase activity and positive coagulase reaction observed in preliminary studies of stock culture collection strains suggested thatDNase activity might prove to be a taxonomic characteristic useful in studies of strains of the micrococcus-staphylococcus group.
Studies of Extracellular and Intracellular Bacterial Deoxyribonucleic Acids
TLDR
Highly polymerized bacterial deoxyribonucleic acids obtained from extracellular and from intracellular locations were analysed and it was found that a specific ribonuclease-sensitive DNase inhibitor protected slime DNA from depolymerization by culture DNase.
Studies of extracellular and intracellular bacterial deoxyribonucleic acids.
TLDR
This enzyme, detected by studying its action against solutions of calf thymus DNA prepared from dried fibres, was activated by various cations within the pH range of cultures, however, it has little capacity to attack the slime-layer DNA, which presumably is more nearly native.
RELEASE OF DEOXYRIBONUCLEASE BY ONION ROOTS GROWING IN SOLUTIONS OF RIBONUCLEASE
TLDR
Evidence is offered that this response to production in the meristematic cells of chromosomal aberrations and mitotic abnormalities in growing roots of onion is due to release of deoxyribonuclease into the solution by the action of ribonucleasing concomitantly with the modification of mitotic processes.
PREPARATION OF POLYNUCLEOTIDE COMPLEX FROM SALMONELLA TYPHOSA,
TLDR
A procedure for disrupting gram negative bacteria, which has been applied to pneumococci, avoids the danger of hydrolysis by alkaline or acid reagents and permits the preparation of a highly polymerized polynucleotide complex from S. typhosa.

Streptococcal Desoxyribonuclease
TLDR
The lytic action was found to be due to the presence of desoxyribonuclease which is elaborated during the growth of strains of hemolytic streptococci and is freely demonstrable in the fluid medium in which the organisms are cultivated.
Localization of Alkaline Phosphatase in Yeast
TLDR
The Gomori technique for alkaline phosphatase localization is applied to preparations of Saccharomyces cerevisie and the location of these enzymes in the cell has not previously been described.

TLDR
The enzyme requires activation by magnesium or manganese ion, and citrate serves as a potent inhibitor of the magnesium-activated enzyme, and its enzymatic activity is inhibited by the specific antibody present in the serum of rabbits immunized with enzyme protein.
CRYSTALLINE SOYBEAN TRYPSIN INHIBITOR
  • M. Kunitz

TLDR
Crystalline soy protein when denatured is readily digestible by pepsin, and less readily by chymotrypsin and by trypsin, which results in a proportional gain in the inhibiting activity.
Phosphatase on Chromosomes
TLDR
Phosphatase on the chromosomes in tissue culture mitoses, and in the mitoses of healing wounds, is found and sections may be obtained in which only the nuclei contain active phosphatase.
A METHOD FOR THE QUANTITATIVE DETERMINATION OF TRYPSIN AND PEPSIN
A quantitative method is described which permits a determination of the relative amount of trypsin or pepsin present in a gelatin-enzyme digestion mixture, provided the gelatin and trypsin solutions
