Summary Phosphorylation sites of sepiapterin reductase (SPR) phosphorylated by Ca 2+ -dependent protein kinase II (CaM KII) were studied. By immunoreaction against phosphorylated amino acids, we found that Ser residues of SPR were phosphorylated. We constructed several point mutants of SPR by...
Summary Evidence accumulates suggesting that the pathogenesis in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is associated with modulations in the Fas/FasL system. Serum concentrations of soluble Fas ligand (sFasL) were found to be elevated in patients with SLE. In this study we wanted to determine the...
Summary Dihydroneopterin has recently been shown to either promote or decrease formation of free radicals or radicalmediated reactions, depending on the conditions. We report here the scavenging activity of dihydroneopterin on nitrogen centered radicals. Diphenylpicrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and tl. e...
Summary In 40 cataract patients and in 51 patients without pseudoexfoliation (PES) we determined serum concentrations of neopterin, kynurenine, and selenium and concentrations of neopterin in aqueous humour from the anterior chamber of the eye. In addition, selenium content in lenses was...
Summary The photoinduced cleavage of plasmid DNA by UV -A light in the presence of pterin was investigated. Electrophoretic analysis of the irradiated plasmid pUCI8 in the presence of pterin showed that UV light of 350 nm induced the transformation of a significant proportion of the supercoiled...
