A specific and direct method for the evaluation of monomethoxypolyethylene glycol (MPEG) in enzyme adducts has been developed. The method is based on extensive modification by trinitrobenzensulfonic acid (TNBS) of the MPEG-enzyme, to form an acid-stable TNBS adduct with the available amino groups of lysine and alpha-amino acid. The MPEG-modified ...

Phosphoinositide hydrolysis is elicited by alpha-adrenoceptor stimulation in the myocardium, resulting in the generation of 1,2-diacylglycerol by the direct activation of phospholipase C. However, the physiological role of 1,2-diacylglycerol accumulation in the heart has been largely unexplored. Therefore, we studied the effects of norepinephrine on the accumulation of 1,2-diacylglycerol and ...
