Disease relevance of Hexamine


High impact information on Hexamine


Chemical compound and disease context of Hexamine


Biological context of Hexamine

  • Furthermore, the electric potential across the tight junction will be equal to the difference in membrane potentials of the two cells. dpa- can therefore be expected to move electrophoretically from cell membrane to cell membrane across the junction in response to an intercellular voltage difference [8].
  • Silicatein, an enzymatic biocatalyst from the marine sponge Tethya aurantia, is demonstrated to catalyze and template the hydrolysis/condensation of the molecular precursor BaTiF6 at low temperature to form nanocrystalline BaTiOF4, an orthorhombic oxofluorotitanate [14].
  • To test this model we have microinjected cobalt hexamine trichloride into interphase nuclei and have observed the rapid condensation of the interphase chromatin into thick fibers with a spacing similar to the native-state interphase correlation length determined from our image analysis [15].
  • To understand the molecular characteristics of the proteins composing this silk, we constructed tubuliform-gland-specific cDNA libraries from three different spider families, Nephila clavipes, Argiope aurantia, and Araneus gemmoides [16].
  • The average cell velocity was 26 micron/s. A quantitative assay for chemotaxis was used to test various chemicals for their ability to attract S. aurantia M1 [17].

Anatomical context of Hexamine

  • Second, this electrophoretic removal or addition of dpa- from a cell's membrane through the tight junction must reduce or increase its dpa- content and thus its capacitance [8].
  • More importantly, the DPA treatment produced a sevenfold increase in the size of the capacitance steps observed upon the exocytotic fusion of single secretory granules [18].
  • The methods are used to determine the diffusion coefficients of oxygen and ruthenium(III) hexamine [Ru(NH3)6(3+)] in laryngeal cartilage [19].
  • We have found that incubations of normal mouse mast cells with the hydrophobic anion dipicrylamine (DPA), increases cell membrane capacitance by about three times [18].
  • The theory predicts the salt dependence and binding free energies, of Mg(2+) ions to polynucleotides, of hexamine cobalt(III) to calf thymus DNA, of polyamines to T7 DNA, of oligolysines to poly(U) and poly(a), and of tripeptides to heparin, a charged polysaccharide [20].

Associations of Hexamine with other chemical compounds

  • The effect is observed with both cytochrome c and hexamine ruthenium as reductants [21].
  • A recently characterized fucose-specific lectin from Aleuria aurantia bound reversibly approximately 60% of the applied protein-bound radioactivity [22].
  • In the presence of a hexamine analogue of spermine at a concentration of 25 microM, the hybrids were stabilized with Tm values of 80 and 78 degrees C, for RNA-PODNA and RNA-PSDNA, respectively [23].
  • Ten lectins were investigated for their binding to Phl p I components: Aleuria aurantia agglutinin showed strong reactivity (indicating fucose residues), while Galanthus nivalis agglutinin (indicating mannose residues) and concanavalin A (indicating mannose, glucose or N-acetylglucosamine residues) showed weak binding [24].
  • The antigenic carbohydrate was present in glycopeptide fractions that either interact with Pisum sativum agglutinin-agarose or were bound by Aleuria aurantia agglutinin-digoxigenin, indicating that these structures contained alpha(1-6)fucose residues [25].
