Antigen(s) immunologically related to pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAGs) have previously been detected in the serum of pregnant goats. In this work, we describe a partial characterization of a family of PAGs isolated from the placenta of the goat. The procedure, monitored by RIA, included extraction of proteins at neutral pH, acidic, and ammonium sulfate precipitations; and gel filtration and ion exchange chromatographies. Immunoreactivity, initially located in the acidic supernatant and in the 40-80% ammonium sulfate fractions, was equally apportioned between the 0.04 and 0.08 M NaCl DEAE fractions. After further purification of both DEAE fractions, the preparations were subjected to one- and two-dimensional electrophoresis, and individual polypeptides were analyzed by amino acid sequencing. Three PAGs, which differed in amino acid sequence and apparent molecular masses (62, 59, and 55 kDa), were detected, each containing several isoforms with different pls: caprine (c) PAG62 (pl: 5.1, 4.8), cPAG59 (pl: 6.2, 5.9, 5.6), and cPAG55 (pl: 5.3, 5.1, 4.9). These proteins had high sequence identities to each other and to PAGs purified from other species. Each had two putative N-glycosylation sites within the 27 amino terminal residues sequenced. This work demonstrates that PAGs are present in goat placenta and that multiple forms are expressed. [less ▲]

Pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAGs) are synthesized in the outer epithelial layer of the placenta in artiodactyls. In this work, three novel ovine PAGs were isolated from late-pregnancy fetal cotyledons and characterized biochemically. The isolation procedure included acid and ammonium sulfate precipitations and anion and cation exchange chromatographies. The isolated PAGs have different NH2-terminal amino acid sequences (RGSXLTILPLRNMRDIVY, ISRVSXLTIHPLRNIMDML, and RGSNLTIHPLRNIRD) and apparent molecular masses (55, 57, and 59 kDa). Each shows several isoforms with different pl values. The three proteins share high sequence identity with each other and with other ovine, bovine, and caprine PAGs. They have not been described previously. The ovPAG-59 sequence differs from the previously identified ovPAG-4 sequence (determined by DNA cloning and sequencing) at only one position among the 15 N-terminal residues. The newly characterized ovPAGs and the procedure used to isolate them will be helpful in producing new antisera for investigating PAG secretion in pregnant ewes. [less ▲]

The isolation and identification of major phenylpropanoid esters from Marrubium vulgare: (+) (E)-caffeoyl-L-malic acid 1, acteoside 2, forsythoside B 3, arenarioside 4, ballotetroside 5, as well as their anti-inflammatory activity are reported for the first time, We evaluated the inhibitory effects of these five compounds on cyclooxygenase (Cox) catalysed prostaglandin biosynthesis activity. Only the glycosidic phenylpropanoid esters showed an inhibitory activity towards the Cox-2 enzyme and three of them: acteoside 2, forsythoside B 3, arenarioside 4, exhibited higher inhibitory potencies on Cox-2 than on Cox-1. These results are of interest, as Cox-2 is mainly associated with inflammation and the Cox-1 inhibition with adverse side effects often observed with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The occurence of these phenylpropanoid esters could also explain some other pharmacological properties of M. vulgare. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Venoms are a rich source of ligands for ion channels, but very little is known about their capacity to modulate G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) activity. We developed a strategy to identify novel toxins targeting GPCRs. Experimental approach: We studied the interactions of mamba venom fractions with a1-adrenoceptors in binding experiments with 3H-prazosin. The active peptide (AdTx1) was sequenced by Edman degradation and mass spectrometry fragmentation. Its synthetic homologue was pharmacologically characterized by binding experiments using cloned receptors and by functional experiments on rabbit isolated prostatic smooth muscle [less ▲]

High Speed Counter Current Chromatography (HSCCC) has been used to isolate and purify two quaternary alkaloids from a sample of curare prepared by the Panare Indians of Estado Bolivar, Venezuela. One of the compounds is the known base Macusine B. The other one is a new but related base named panarine. Its structure has been established unequivocally by spectral and X-ray cristallographic analysis. [less ▲]

The 37 kD precursor of the 67 kD laminin receptor (37LRP) is a polypeptide whose expression is consistently upregulated in aggressive carcinoma. Interestingly, the 37LRP appears to be a multifunctional protein involved in the translational machinery and has also been identified as p40 ribosome-associated protein. Although highly conserved cDNAs corresponding to this polypeptide have been isolated from several species including vertebrates, invertebrates, plants and prokaryotes, characterization of any of the corresponding active genes has never been reported. In this study, we have cloned an intron-containing fragment which permitted us to isolate the active 37LRP/p40 human gene. This gene contains seven exons and six introns. Ribonuclease protection experiments suggest multiple transcription start sites. The promoter area does not bear a TATA box but contains four Sp1 sites. The first intron is also GC rich containing five Sp1 sites. Intron 4 contains the full sequence of the small nuclear RNA E2 and two Alu sequences are found in intron 3. Fluorescent in situ hybridization localized the 37LRP/p40 active gene on chromosome 3 in the locus 3p21.3 which, interestingly, is a hot spot for genetic alterations in several cancers and particularly in small cell lung carcinoma.
