Associations of Electrophorus with chemical compounds

  • Antisera against each of the two major subunits of detergent-solubilized electroplax (sodium plus potassium)-activated adenosine triphosphatase from Electrophorus electricus were prepared [17].
  • Comparisons of these and other properties of the CBPs suggest that CBP16 and CBP13.5 may be the murine counterparts of lactose-specific lectins previously identified in electric eel and in several bovine and avian tissues [18].
  • Fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled alpha-cobratoxin. Biochemical characterization and interaction with acetylcholine receptor from Electrophorus electricus [19].
  • In addition to the previously reported in situ product syn-TZ2PA6, we discovered three new inhibitors, syn-TZ2PA5, syn-TA2PZ6, and syn-TA2PZ5, derived from tacrine and phenylphenanthridinium azides and acetylenes, in the reactions with Electrophorus electricus and mouse AChE [20].
  • Calcium-binding sites were detected in the electrocyte of Electrophorus electricus (L.) using the Oschman & Wall technique, in which CaCl2 was added to the fixative and washing solutions [21].
