The effect of aflatoxins on mammalian acid deoxyribonucleases.
Decreased pancreatic digestive enzymes during aflatoxicosis.
TLDR
Aflatoxicosis was associated with reduced activity levels of enzymes that digest starch and lipid, and this digestive deficiency could account for a malabsorption syndrome observed in field outbreaks of a flatoxicosis.

TLDR
Scientists now found that AFB1 also affected epigenetic regulation, which might shed new light into AFB1 toxicity mechanism researches and detoxification of AFB1 has always been a hot spot.

New sterigmatocystin-producing species of Aspergillus section Versicolores from indoor air in Croatia
TLDR
A polyphasic approach, including sequence-based methods, morphological and physiological studies, was used for species characterization and in this paper is described as Aspergillus pepii, which is closely related to A. versicolor.

TLDR
It was concluded that the carcinogens tested might not act directly on DNAse II in the critical reaction of the carcinogenic process, and tryptophan, methionine, and/or histidine residues play important roles in the enzyme activity.

TLDR
The existence of a DNase-inhibitor complex is demonstrated by physicochemical experiments and the inhibitor is able to reactivate the DNase treated by urea, probably through a reassociation of the inactive monomers to a dimeric state.

TLDR
There is now evidence, almost all of it circumstantial, which suggests that DNase's may indeed perform some ac­ cessory function in DNA replication.
A comparative study of acid deoxyribonucleases extracted from different tissues and species.
TLDR
The results obtained strongly indicate that the enzymatic activity is associated with protein molecules endowed with very similar physical, chemical, and enzymic properties.
DNA polymerase from rat liver chromosomal proteins. Alteration of template specificity and alkaline deoxyribonuclease activity.
TLDR
It is shown that this alteration in template specificity is not the direct result of the action of an alkaline endonuclease present in the DNA polymerase preparation.

TLDR
Electron microscopical observations showed that ∼90 per cent of the isolated nuclei appear intact, with well preserved nucleoli, nucleoplasm, nuclear envelope, and pores, and that the isolated fraction contains 25 to 30% of the nuclei of the original homogenate.
