The radioisotope test using 1-131 labelled serum albumin, performed during a period of reactive hyperemia, provides quantitative data which express the rate at which radioactive blood flowing from the leg replaces the nonradioactive blood present in the foot. It has been applied in normal subjects and in patients with arterial occlusions in the lower limbs. High washout rates, i.e. small M/2 index values, were found in the former, whereas low washout rates with higher M/2 indices were observed in the latter. Surprisingly, patients with a very low washout rate could be without subjective symptoms. The usefulness of the test in clinical practice is explained.

    The authors sandwiched protein molecules into the layered structure of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Light emission from the OLEDs was suppressed on the area with the protein submonolayers of 4–7 nm thick. They found that this suppression depended on the density of the proteins...

    The photoreactions of 3,3' ,4' ,5-tetrachlorosalicylanilide anion (TCSA-) with two serum proteins were studied. TCSA- and anions of two similar compounds, N-ethyl-3,5-dichlorosalicylamide and salicylanilide, bind noncovalently to human serum albumin (HSA) without irradiation in aqueous...

    The most frequent results of trauma to tooth germs are enamel hypoplasia and enamel hypocalcification. These differing results may be due to the stage of amelogenesis at which trauma occurs. The cellular and biomolecullar events involved in the genesis of these defects are poorly understood. We...

    The effect of human serum albumin (HSA) addition on the rate of hydrolysis of N-glutaryl- L-phenylalanine p-nitroanilide (GPNA) catalyzed by α-chymotrypsin has been measured in phosphate buffer saline at pH = 7.4. The presence of HSA (up to 200 μM) leads to a decrease in the rate of the...

    We have studied the effect of 2,2,2-trifluoroethanol (TFE), an α-helix inducer, versus methyl cyanide (MeCN), a β-sheet inducer, on acid-denatured human serum albumin (HSA) using far-UV circular dichroism, intrinsic fluorescence, 1-anilino-8-naphthalene sulfonate binding, and acrylamide...

John; Gillespie, Matthew T.; Nagahama, Masami; Tsuji, Akihiko; Matsuda, Yoshiko // Journal of Biochemistry;1999, Vol. 125 Issue 3, p627 

    Serum albumin is synthesized as a larger precursor form, proalbumin, which undergoes proteolytic processing at a dibasic site by a hepatic proprotein convertase within the secretory pathway to generate the mature form. Although furin, a member of the subtilisin-like proprotein convertase (SPC)...
