A transaminase (aminotransferase, EC 2. 6. 1) was extracted and
purified approximately 148-fold from shoot tips of pea (Pisum sativum
L. cv. Alaska) seedlings and some properties of the enzyme were
determined. The purification included acetone precipitation followed
by column chromatography on hydroxylapatite.
With a-ketoglutarate as co-substrate, the acetone precipitated...
There is growing public concern about the high proportion of saturated fatty acids in milk fat; however, feed intake, energy partitioning toward milk synthesis, and milk fat concentrations can decrease when cows are fed high concentrations of unsaturated lipids. The objective of this study was to identify the optimal rate...
The effects of ultraviolet (UV) irradiation on photosynthesis and
various partial reactions involving the individual photoreactions of
photosynthesis were examined. These reactions included photo-reduction in adapted green algae, Hill reaction, cyclic photophosphorylation,
the 520 nm absorbance change and variable-yield fluorescence.
The reactions were measured in spinach chloroplasts and
(HIOMT) in chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus
tshawytscha). Various body tissues, as well as several
morphological brain divisions were tested for the presence
of HIOMT. Activity was found in the retina, the dorsal
portion of the diencephalon, and in the pineal gland of
chinook. However, the activity was significantly higher
Hydrocarbon solvents are widely used in the production of paints,
adhesives, dyes, polymers, plastics, textiles, printing inks, agricultural products and
pharmaceuticals. While the neuropathic potential of aliphatic solvents was shown
in the 1970s, little is known about the neuropathic potential of aromatic solvents.
The present study examines such solvents, 1,2-diethylbenzene...
Nitrogen management recommendations for yellow mustard (Sinapis alba L.) production in the high rainfall environment of Oregon's Willamette Valley (WV) are not available. The objectives of this investigation were: (i) to determine the effect of applied nitrogen (N) on seed yield and yield components in yellow mustard, and (ii) to...
The effects of five cytokinin antagonists on the growth
of cytokinin-autonomous lines of Phaseolus lunatus cv.
Kingston, Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Great Northern, and
Nicotiana tabacum cv. Wisconsin 38 callus tissues have been
compared. The antagonists tested included four N⁴-substituted 4-amino-2-methylthiopyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidines
bearing the following N⁴ side chains, 4-n-pentyl-
(ms²pnN⁴Prp), 4-n-hexyl- (ms²HxN⁴Prp),...
