Murine hepatitis virus strain (MHV-3) produces a strain-dependent pattern of disease which has been used as a model for fulminant viral hepatitis. This study was undertaken to examine whether there was a correlation between macrophage activation and susceptibility or resistance to MHV-3 infection. Peritoneal macrophages were isolated from resistant A/J and susceptible BALB/cJ mice and, following stimulation with MHV-3 or lipopolysaccharide (LPS), analyzed for transcription of mRNA and production of interleukin-1 (IL-1), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta), mouse fibrinogen-like protein (musfiblp), tissue factor (TF), leukotriene B4, and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). Macrophages from BALB ...


In Vivo Regulation Of Wheat-Leaf Phosphoenolpyruvate Carboxylase By Reversible Phosphorylation, Stephen M. G. Duff, Raymond Chollet Jan 1995

In Vivo Regulation Of Wheat-Leaf Phosphoenolpyruvate Carboxylase By Reversible Phosphorylation, Stephen M. G. Duff, Raymond Chollet

Biochemistry -- Faculty Publications

Regulation of C3 phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) and its protein-serine/threonine kinase (PEPC-PK) was studied in wheat (Trificum aesfivum) leaves that were excised from low-N-grown seedlings and subsequently illuminated and/or supplied with 40 mM KNO3. The apparent phosphorylation status of PEPC was assessed by its sensitivity to i-malate inhibition at suboptimal assay conditions, and the activity state of PEPC-PK was determined by the in vitro 32P labeling of purified maize dephospho-PEPC by [y32PIATP/ Mg. lllumination (┬▒NO3-) for 1 h led to about a 4.5-fold increase in the 50% inhibition constant for i-malate, which ...


Molecular Cloning And Rare Cleavage Mapping Of Human 2p, 6q, 8q, 12q, And 18q Telomeres, Roberto A. Macina, Ken Morii, Xue-Lan Hu, Dimitri G. Negorev, Chrysanthe Spais, Lisa A. Ruthig, Harold C. Riethman Jan 1995

Molecular Cloning And Rare Cleavage Mapping Of Human 2p, 6q, 8q, 12q, And 18q Telomeres, Roberto A. Macina, Ken Morii, Xue-Lan Hu, Dimitri G. Negorev, Chrysanthe Spais, Lisa A. Ruthig, Harold C. Riethman

Large terminal fragments of human chromosomes 2p, 6q, 8q, 12q, and 18q were cloned using yeast artificial chromosomes (YACs). RecA-assisted restriction endonuclease (RARE) cleavage analysis of genomic DNA samples from 11 unrelated individuals using YAC-derived probes confirmed the telomeric localizations of the half-YACs studied. The cloned Fragments provide telomeric closure of maps for the respective chromosome arms and will supply the reagents needed for analyzing and sequencing these distal subtelomeric regions.
