141. THE SYNTHESIS AND TURNOVER OF RAT LIVER PEROXISOMES : I. Fractionation of Peroxisome Proteins Full Text available with Trip Pro

THE SYNTHESIS AND TURNOVER OF RAT LIVER PEROXISOMES : I. Fractionation of Peroxisome Proteins Rat liver peroxisomes isolated by density gradient centrifugation were disrupted at pH 9, and subdivided into a soluble fraction containing 90% of their total proteins and virtually all of their catalase, D-amino acid oxidase, L-alpha-hydroxy acid oxidase and isocitrate dehydrogenase activities, and a core fraction containing urate oxidase and 10% of the total proteins. The soluble proteins were (...) chromatographed on Sephadex G-200, diethylaminoethyl (DEAE)-cellulose, hydroxylapatite, and sulfoethyl (SE)-Sephadex. None of these methods provided complete separation of the protein components, but these could be distributed into peaks in which the specific activities of different enzymes were substantially increased. Catalase, D-amino acid oxidase, and L-alpha-hydroxy acid oxidase contribute a maximum of 16, 2, and 4%, respectively, of the protein of the peroxisome. The contribution of isocitrate

group. This high value suggests that most if not all nascent peptides contain valine in the N-terminal position. 3. Cell-free preparations containing reticulocyte ribosomes and pH5 enzymes incorporated alpha-hydroxy-[(14)C]isovaleryl-tRNA (where tRNA refers to transfer RNA), which was obtained by deamination of [(14)C]valyl-tRNA from yeast or liver with nitrous acid, into both soluble and nascent protein. 4. When the soluble protein was chromatographed on CM-cellulose, radioactivity was found (...) The initiation of haemoglobin synthesis in rabbit reticulocytes 1. The incorporation of labelled valine by rabbit reticulocytes into the N-terminal position of nascent haemoglobin was investigated by deaminating the nascent peptides with nitrous acid and isolating labelled alpha-hydroxyisovaleric acid and valine after acid hydrolysis. 2. The amount of radioactivity in alpha-hydroxyisovaleric acid relative to that in valine indicated the presence of 12.3% N-terminal valine having a free amino

the appearance of a peroxisome-within-a-peroxisome, and (b) narrow, dense extensions of canaliculi or cisterns from the periphery of the peroxisome, forming partial circlets or surrounding irregular areas of cytoplasm. The unusual enzyme responses were (a) elevation of catalase activity in liver and kidney in female rats, (b) increased activity of three hydrogen peroxide-producing oxidases (urate oxidase, L-alpha-hydroxy acid oxidase, and D-amino acid oxidase) in the liver of both sexes, and (c) elevation (...) Unusual responses of rat hepatic and renal peroxisomes to RMI 14, 514, a new hypolipidemic agent RMI 14, 514 ([5-tetradecycloxy]-2-furancarboxylic acid) represents a new class of hypolipidemic agents which cause unusual ultrastructural changes in liver of male rats and in selected peroxisomal enzymes in liver and kidney of both sexes. Among the principal ultrastructural changes in peroxisomes of male rat liver were (a) cavitation and compartmentalization of the matrix, often giving

metabolized by the enzyme, but was not an intermediate in the pathway. No intermediate before IDA was found, but an unstable alpha-hydroxy-NTA intermediate was postulated. IDA did undergo cleavage in the presence of the purified monooxygenase to give glyoxylate and glycine, but was not metabolized in cell-free extracts. Glyoxylate was further metabolized by cell-free extracts to yield CO2 and glycerate or glycine, products also found from NTA metabolism. Of the three bacterial isolates in which the NTA (...) Pathway of degradation of nitrilotriacetate by a Pseudomonas species. The pathway of degradation of nitrilotriacetate (NTA) was determined by using cell-free extracts and a 35-fold purification of NTA monooxygenase. The first step in the breakdown was an oxidative cleavage of the tertiary amine by the monooxygenase to form the aldo acid, glyoxylate, and the secondary amine, iminodiacetate (IDA). NTA N-oxide acted as a substrate analog for induction of the monooxygenase and was slowly

At an acid pH, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and acetyl phosphate are produced, and carbon dioxide is exchanged into the carboxyl group of pyruvate. A concentration of approximately 1 m phosphate is required for the phosphoroclastic reaction and formate exchange; the production of carbon dioxide and hydrogen is greatly inhibited by high concentrations of phosphate. Formate exchange requires a divalent metal ion and is stimulated by reducing agents

and management (1). On treatment this states: “Medical Care Ammonium lactate and alpha hydroxy acids have been reported to reduce the height of seborrheic keratoses. Superficial lesions can be treated by carefully applying pure trichloroacetic acid and repeating if the full thickness is not removed on the first treatment. Topical treatment with tazarotene cream 0.1% applied twice daily for 16 weeks caused clinical improvement in seborrheic keratoses in 7 of 15 patients. Surgical Care A variety of techniques (...) nitrogen generally gives better results than liquid nitrogen alone. • Application of 70% glycolic acid for 3-5 minutes prior to curetting also is effective.” 1.

An emollient, preferably plain petrolatum, mineral oil, or lotions containing urea or alpha-hydroxy acids (eg, lactic, glycolic, and pyruvic acids), should be applied twice daily, especially after bathing while the skin is still wet. Blotting with a towel removes excess applied material. Ichthyosis typically responds well to the topical keratolytic propylene glycol. To remove scale (eg, if ichthyosis is severe), patients can apply a preparation containing 40 to 60 (...) % propylene glycol in water under occlusion (eg, a thin plastic film or bag worn overnight) every night after hydrating the skin (eg, by bathing or showering); in children, the preparation should be applied twice daily without occlusion. After scale has decreased, less frequent application is required.

hydroxy acid peels [ ] (AHAs) are naturally occurring such as , a natural constituent of sugar cane juice and lactic acid, found in sour milk and tomato juice. This is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. Alpha hydroxy acids can also be mixed with facial washes, serums or creams in lesser concentrations as part of a daily skin-care regimen to improve the skin's texture. There are five usual fruit acids (...) : , , , and . Many other alpha hydroxy acids exist and are used. AHA peels are not indicated for treating wrinkles. AHA peels may cause stinging, , mild skin irritation, and . Higher pH levels and lower percentages of hydroxy acids are commonly used as home peels. These will not work as quickly as an in-office procedure, but can be economical for many people. Beta hydroxy acid peels [ ] is a beta hydroxy acid. It is antibacterial and antiinflammatory and, as a result, works well for acne. Salicylic acid also has

(humectant) agents, such as: Urea Salicylic acid Alpha-hydroxy acids Saccharide isomerate Feet should be inspected daily and on the first sign of any cracking, a moisturising routine 2-3 times a day may be all that is needed to heal the heel. A pumice stone can be rubbed gently against the callus to take away some of the thick hard skin before applying moisturiser. The fissures may be treated with a liquid, gel or spray bandage to reduce pain, protect and allow more rapid healing. For severely cracked (...) heels or if no improvement is seen after a week of self-treatment a visit to a podiatrist may be required. Treatments may involve the following. Debridement – cutting away hard thick skin (this should not be attempted at home using scissors or razor blade as there is a risk of removing too much skin and infection occurring) Strapping – bandage/dressings around the heel to reduce skin movement Prescription for stronger softening or debriding agents, e.g. urea or salicylic acid creams Insoles, heel

months. The control group showed modest improvements in surface properties only. These results demonstrate that significant appearance benefits can be derived from use of exfoliative proteolytic enzymes. Such improvements are the result of changes to the epidermis and dermis and are strikingly similar to results observed with higher concentrations of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids). (...) Topical proteolytic enzymes affect epidermal and dermal properties. Although proteolytic enzymes have a history of use in skin care products it is not known whether they simply induce superficial exfoliation or with continued use can alter epidermal and dermal skin properties. We examined herein whether enhanced exfoliation resulting from treatment with an aspartyl dependent acid protease produces appearance improvements and over time, changes in the epidermis and dermis.
