Phenylalanine hydroxylase is an enzyme which catalyses the reaction responsible for the addition of a hydroxyl group to the end of the 6-carbon aromatic ring of phenylalanine, such that it becomes tyrosine: Image:L-phenylalanine-skeletal. png|Phenylalanine Image:L-tyrosine-skeletal. png|Tyrosine Phenylalanine hydroxylase is the rate-limiting enzyme of the metabolic pathway which degrades excess phenylalanine. The other substrates in the reaction are molecular oxygen and tetrahydrobiopterin.
In the field of molecular biology, BK channels, also called Maxi-K or slo1, are ion channels which conduct potassium (K) ions through cell membranes. These channels are activated (opened) by changes in membrane electrical potential and/or by increases in concentrations of intracellular Ca.
Clathrin is a protein which plays a major role in the formation of coated vesicles. Clathrin was first isolated and named by Barbara Pearse in 1975. It forms a triskelion shape which is composed of three clathrin heavy chains and three light chains. When the triskelion interact they form a polyhedral lattice which surrounds the vesicle.
Lysozyme, also known as muramidase or N-acetylmuramide glycanhydrolase, are a family of enzymes which damage bacterial cell walls by catalyzing hydrolysis of 1,4-beta-linkages between N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in a peptidoglycan and between N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in chitodextrins. Lysozyme is abundant in a number of secretions, such as tears, saliva, human milk and mucus.
alpha-2-Macroglobulin, also known as α2-macroglobulin and abbreviated as α2M and A2M, is a large plasma protein found in the blood. It is produced by the liver, and is a major component of the alpha-2 band in protein electrophoresis.
Von Willebrand factor (vWF) is a blood glycoprotein involved in hemostasis. It is deficient or defective in von Willebrand disease and is involved in a large number of other diseases, including thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, Heyde's syndrome, and possibly hemolytic-uremic syndrome.
Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), which was once called somatomedin C, is a polypeptide protein hormone similar in molecular structure to insulin. It plays an important role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults.
Keratin 1 is a member of the keratin family. It is specifically expressed in the spinous and granular layers of the epidermis with family member keratin 10. Mutations in this gene have been associated with the variants of bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma in which the palms and soles of the feet are affected.
Keratin, type II cytoskeletal 7 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the KRT7 gene. Keratin 7 is a member of the keratin family. It is specifically expressed in the simple epithelia lining the cavities of the internal organs and in the gland ducts and blood vessels.
Auglaize County is a county located in the state of Ohio, United States with a population of 46,611 as of the 2000 U.S. census. It is included in the Wapakoneta, Ohio Micropolitan Statistical Area. Its county seat is Wapakoneta. The county is named for the Auglaize River. Some sources say it is a corruption of the French description of the clay (glaise) water (eau) while others say it comes from a Native American word meaning "fallen timbers".
William Scheuneman Kenyon (December 13, 1820 - February 10, 1896) was a U.S. Representative from New York. Born in Catskill, New York, Kenyon attended a private academy in Catskill, and the Kinderhook Academy. He was graduated from Rutgers College, New Brunswick, New Jersey, in 1842. He studied law in Kingston, New York. He was admitted to the bar in Albany, New York in 1846 and commenced practice in Kingston.
Sir Joseph Ignatius Little (1835 – July 14, 1902) was a lawyer, politician, and judge in the Colony of Newfoundland. Born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, the son of Cornelius Little and Brigid Costin, he was a lawyer by profession. Little was elected to the Newfoundland and Labrador House of Assembly for Harbour Main in an 1867 by-election.
