A new type of enzyme hydrolyzing the elastase substrate succinyl-L-alanyl-L-alanine-4-nitroanilide has been found in cell-free rheuma todi synovial fluid. Normal plasma and osteoarthritic synovial fluid contained relatively little enzyme. The pH optimum was 8.0. Unexpectedly, the enzyme activity was not

The olfactory system of fish comprises several classes of olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs). The odourants L-alanine and taurocholic acid (TCA) specifically activate microvillous or ciliated OSNs, respectively, in fish. We recorded electro-olfactograms (EOG) in fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas; a laboratory-reared
