control of cell multiplication: preparation and immunological comparison of inhibitory factors in the homogenate and perfusate of the adult rat liver.the control of organ cell multiplication by a negative feed-back mechanism implies that factors of the inhibitory mechanism are present in the blood and are produced by the target organ itself. we have examined the inhibitors which are present in the cytosol of adult rat liver as well as in efferent fluid from an isolated perfused organ. these two materials yielded predominantly protein molecules having in common a molecular weight of approximately 80 000 daltons and an isoelectric point between ...1978100149
the enzymatic conversion of l-histidine to urocanic acid by whole cells of micrococcus luteus immobilized on carbodiimide activated carboxymethylcellulose.whole cells of micrococcus luteus (formerly sarcina lutea atcc 9341) have been covalently linked to a carboxymethylcellulose support system, with the retention of histidine ammonia-lyase activity. the dependence of the rate of urocanic acid formation on ph, temperature, and added surfactant concentration was similar for the free and the immobilized cells. the immobilization procedure used is based on the carbodiimide activation of carboxymethylcellulose and has been optimized for the histidine a ...197715677
[compartmentation of gramicidin 5 in membranes of sensitive bacteria and protein-lipid interactions].gramicidin s is sorbed on the isolated membranes of granicidin-sensitive micrococcus lysodeikticus strain. the antibiotic inhibits the membrane malate dehydrogenase within the temperature range of 9--42 degrees c, i.e. under conditions of gel and liquid-crystalline lipid state; however its effect at 10 degrees c is 10 times as low as is observed at 42 degrees c. the inhibitory effect of gramicidin s on malate dehydrogenase can be eliminated and the antibiotic can be removed from the membrane by ...197988965
[heterogeneity in organization of lipids in the bacterial membrane].the lipids of micrococcus lysodeikticus membranes were 50%-substituted by phosphatidyl choline using lipid-exchanging proteins isolated from rat liver. the incorporation of phosphatidyl choline into the membrane did not significantly change the malate dehydrogenase activity and the temperature dependence activity in the arrhenius plots for the enzyme. gramicidin s--modifier of membrane lipids--had similar effects both on the intact membranes and on the phosphatidyl-enriched membranes. a conclusi ...197988966
cyclic gmp system in epidermis: i. effect of ischemia.when keratome-sliced pig epidermis was floated on hank's balanced salt solution, we observed a rapid decrease in the intracellular level of cyclic gmp. a portion of the lost cyclic gmp was detected in the incubation medium. when the epidermis was kept in air at room temperature, the cyclic gmp level also decreased rapidly but to a lesser degree. incubating the epidermal slice at 37 degrees c in hank's balanced salt solution with the addition of 3-isobutyl-1-methyl xanthine (ibmx) prevented the d ...197989173
