amino acid metabolism and protein synthesis in streptomycin resistant vibrio el tor.metabolic activities in relation to protein synthesis and amino acid utilization are altered in vibrio el tor after development of resistance towards streptomycin. efficiency of in vivo and in vitro protein synthesis is markedly reduced in streptomycin resistant vibrio el tor. the rate of incorporation of 14c-amino acids into protein, uptake of 14c-valine and oxidation of certain amino acids are also altered.197659524
small fragments from the a subunit of cholera toxin capable of activating adenylate cyclase.exposure of cholera toxin to membrane particles prepared from sarcoma 180 cells gives rise to a variety of fragments which are capable of activating adenylate cyclase [atp:pyrophosphate-lyase (cyclizing), ec]. a major component of these fragments has an apparent molecular weight in the 8,000-10,000 range. the smallest stimulatory fragment has a molecular weight of approximately 1400. the small size of the fragments is confirmed by sephadex gel filtration, in the presence of either sodium ...197660760

effects of ph of the medium on flagellation of vibrio parahaemolyticus.formation of the lateral flagella by vibrio parahaemolyticus was inhibited under an alkaline condition of the medium. however, flagellation of the polar monotrichous flagellum was not affected in the same condition. flagellation of the lateral flagella depended on the ph of the medium.197939500

antigenic relationship between the common antigen (oep) of pseudomonas aeruginosa and vibrio cholerae.antibodies were found by the oep-passive hemagglutination test to cross-react with the common antigen (oep) of pseudomonas aeruginosa in sera of rabbits immunized with two serotype (inaba and ogawa) strains of vibrio cholerae. the titer in the oep-passive hemagglutination reaction rose later than did the agglutinin titer and reached a peak of 640 to 1,280. the titers of oep antibody formation in rabbits immunized with v. cholerae were almost the same as that of p. aeruginosa. the common antigen ...197875846

macrophage plasminogen activator: modulation of enzyme production by anti-inflammatory steroids, mitotic inhibitors, and cyclic nucleotides.plasminogen activator production by cultured mouse peritoneal macrophages can be modulated in vitro by low concentrations of various pharmacologically active molecules. glucocorticoid hormones and their synthetic derivatives, as well as cholera toxin, colchicine, and vinblastine markedly inhibit production of this enzyme without affecting other important macrophage functions. the effect of glucocorticoids is of particular interest, both because their relative in vivo anti-inflammatory potencies ...197661067
the effect of oral pancreatic extract on jejunal bactericidal activity in protein-deficient vervet monkeys challenged with vibrio cholerae.eleven vervet monkeys (cercopithecus aethiops) were fed with an "o" protein diet. after the serum albumin level fell below 2.5 g/100 ml the animals and 4 controls, which received regular monkey chow, were orally infected with a monkey-adapted strain of vibrio cholerae. the total bactericidal activity of the jejunal fluid decreased during feeding with "o" protein diet, but increased after challenge with v. cholerae in all groups. the non-immunoglobulin-bound bactericidal activity, which also decr ...197941422
