Apolipoprotein J (apoJ; also known as clusterin and sulfated glycoprotein (SGP)-2) is associated with senile plaques in degenerating regions of Alzheimer's disease brains, where activated microglia are also prominent. We show a functional link between apoJ and activated microglia by...

Modification of transducin (T) with iodoacetic acid (IAA) inhibited its light-dependent guanine nucleotide-binding activity. Approximately 1 mol of [(3)H]IAA was incorporated per mole of T. Cys(347), located on the alpha-subunit of T (T(alpha)), was identified as the major labeled residue...

We investigated the pressure effect on the conformation of beta-amylase by monitoring the chemical reaction of the unpaired cysteine. Sweet potato beta-amylase is composed of four identical subunits, each of which contains six cysteine residues. These residues are inert to...

The reagent 2-nitro-5-thiocyanatobenzoic acid (NTCB) is commonly used to cyanylate and cleave proteins at cysteine residues, but this two-step reaction requires lengthy incubations and produces highly incomplete cleavages. In previous reports, incomplete cleavage was attributed to a competing beta-elimination reaction...

In addition to its kinase activity, myosin light chain kinase has an actin-binding activity, which results in bundling of actin filaments [Hayakawa et al., Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 199, 786-791, 1994]. There are two actin-binding sites on the kinase: calcium-...
