- Head J, Hahn M, Kennedy S. Key amino acids in the aryl hydrocarbon receptor predict dioxin sensitivity in avian species. Environ Sci Technol. 2008;42:7535-41 pubmed..Given the large degree of variation in species sensitivity and the paucity of species-specific toxicity data, a genetic screen based on these findings could substantially improve risk assessment for dioxin-like compounds in wild birds...
- Schenk M, Koppisetty C, Santos D, Carmona E, Bhatia S, Nyholm P, et al. Interaction of arylsulfatase-A (ASA) with its natural sulfoglycolipid substrates: a computational and site-directed mutagenesis study. Glycoconj J. 2009;26:1029-45 pubmed publisher..However, our dockings suggested additional intermolecular hydrogen bonding and hydrophobic interactions between ASA and SGC/SGG, thus contributing to the specificity of SGC/SGG as natural substrates. ..
- Pelland A, Corbett H, Baltz J. Amino Acid transport mechanisms in mouse oocytes during growth and meiotic maturation. Biol Reprod. 2009;81:1041-54 pubmed publisher..In some cases, however, follicular cells coupled to the oocyte enhanced uptake of amino acids by the same systems present in the oocyte. ..
