Differences in the occurrence of glutathione transferase isoenzymes ec in rat lung and liver

, : Differences in the occurrence of glutathione transferase isoenzymes ec in rat lung and liver. Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 127(1): 80-86

Cytosolic GSH [glutathione] transferases were purified from rat lung by affinity chromatography followed by chromatofocusing. On the criteria of order of elution, substrate specificity, apparent subunit MW, sensitivity to inhibitors, and reaction with antibodies, transferase subunits equivalent to subunits 2, 3 and 4, in the binary combinations occurring in liver, were identified. However, subunit 1 (and therefore transferases 1-1 and 1-2) was not detected. The most conspicuous difference is the presence in lung of a new form, eluting at pH 8.7, which is not detected in rat liver. This isoenzyme (transferase pH 8.7) is characterized by its low apparent subunit MW and high efficiency in the conjugation of glutathione with anti-benzo(a)pyrene-7,8-dihydrodiol-9,10-epoxide, considered the ultimate carcinogen of benzo(a)-pyrene.

Krauss, H. H., 1965: Nutrient requirements of plants and conclusions about the need of mineral fertilizers for forest nurseries. For good plant growth the top 20 cm of soil should contain 2-3 % humus (55-80 tons/ha) and 3 % organic N (1700-2400 kg/ha). Mineral fertilizer was not needed for slow-growing conifers, but was required by vigorously growing larch and red oak.

Even though a survey may take only minutes to fill out, associations that rely on member data for benchmarking programs often have trouble getting those members to respond. But there are good reasons why you should participate, not least of which...

Ferenczy, L., 1957: Examinations on germination- and growth-inhibiting effect of some seed extracts. Water extracts of seeds of 20 crop plants were tested for their effect on seed germination and seedling root growth of Amaranthus albus. The root growth test was found to be more sensitive to the extracts than the germination test. The seeds extra...

In this study, we tested the hypothesis that the glycosylation of the pathogenic isoform of the prion protein (PrP(Sc)) might encode the selective neurotropism of prion strains. We prepared unglycosylated cellular prion protein (PrP(C)) substrate...

T cell activation results from the engagement of multiple receptors on T cells by their respective ligands on antigen presenting cells. Studies using artificial cell surface constructs have demonstrated that effective T cell response requires that...
