 Title    Ruthenium Red Staining of Chromatin in Epon Sections  
 Abstract    Ruthenium Red, C hrom atin Staining After staining with a 50% ethanol solution o f ruthenium red, chrom atin from onion and mouse cells showed red color and high contrast in the light and electron m icro­ scope, respectively. When applied to glutaraldehyde-fixed, Epon-embedded tissues, this selective staining technique proved to be dependent on the DNA content o f chromatin.

 Title    Immobilization of Human Red Blood Cells  
 Abstract    H uman red blood cells were immobilized in an alginate network which was cross-linked with C a2+ ions. The im ­ mobilized cells were stored for longer than 5 weeks at 4 °C in an isotonic buffered NaCl solution containing glucose, inosine, adenine, and guanosine for energy supply. The im ­ mobilized cells were released from the alginate network by dissolving the matrix with citrate. Both the im mobilized and released cells retain their biconcave shape over the storage period. Measurements of the released cell popula­ tion in a hydrodynamically focussing Coulter C ounter demonstrated that the mean size of the size distribution, the breakdown voltage, and the internal conductivity have not changed in contrast to control m easurem ents on red blood cells stored conventionally in suspension indicating that im mobilization preserves cellular functions.

 Title    Probable Phase Composition of the Mineral in Bone  
 Abstract    Formulas proposed for the mineral of bone were reviewed. Literature data were collected where Ca, P, Na, Mg and C 0 3 are determined in the same samples. These data were analyzed for their conformity to the above mentioned formulas. According to this analysis Mg is contained in a phase having the Ca/P of magnesium whitlockite within the limits o f error. Na is contained in a carbonated calcium phosphate phase which in analogy with synthetic systems must have the apatite structure. The Ca/P ratio o f the remaining "rest phase" is 2. This is based on the composi­ tion of 101 bone mineral samples taken from fishes, reptiles, amphibians, birds and mammals. The C 0 3 content of the bone samples agrees with the formula Ca8 (P 0 4)4 (C 0 3) (OH)2 • x H20 for the "rest phase" within the limits of experimental error. Such a compound has, however, not been found in synthetic systems. Human bone contains about 15% magnesium whitlockite, 25% of the Na and C 0 3 containing apatite and the rest is the carbonated calcium phosphate with Ca/P = 2. It is presumed that this compound has a structure similar to that o f octo calcium phosphate and that most o f the citrate ions which always occur in bone mineral samples are in­ corporated in that phase.

 Title    Chemical Synthesis of Tropoyl Coenzyme A  
 Abstract    Tropoyl coenzyme A has been synthesized in good yields via the corresponding N-hydroxysuc-cinimide ester. The UV-spectrum o f the purified thioester has an absorption maximum at 257 nm; at this wavelength, a molar extinction coefficient o f 19.2 x 106 [cm2 mol-1] has been determined. Upon alkaline hydrolysis o f the thioester bond a difference spectrum with Amax at 235 nm (zfe235= 4.8 x 106 [cm2 m ol-1]) has been observed. Attempts to prepare 2-phenylmalonyl coenzyme A by the same technique gave negative results.

 Title    Circular Dichroism of C-Phycoerythrin: A Conformational Analysis  
 Abstract    An extensive study o f the chiroptical properties o f C-phycoerythrin and the a-and ^-subunits in the spectral region from 700 -200 nm is presented. Based on the VIS-circular dichroism inherently chiral conform ations are proposed for the co­ valently linked chromophores. By means o f mean residue ellipticities and the experimental circular dichroism spectra in the region o f the n -* n* peptide transition the a-helix contents o f the apoproteins o f the ac-and ß-subunits are estimated to amount to 60% and 40%, respectively. The circular dichroism spectrum o f native C-phycoerythrin is congruent with a linear superposition o f the a-and /?-subspectra, in the whole spectral region studied. Since a-and /?-subunits are associated in native C-phycoery-thrin as revealed by sedim entation analysis the interactions between the subunits in the native chromoprotein are not accom panied by substantial conform ational changes. In the temperature range 0 ° -4 0 °C the thermally induced changes o f the chrom ophores in native C-phycoerythrin are not associated with changes o f the secondary structure o f the apoprotein. Unfolding occurs at 60 0 -7 0 °C but slowly leads to irreversible denaturation. Protein unfolding starts at 3 M urea. The random coil secondary structure o f the apoproteins is reached at 8 M urea. At this concentration the absorbance and the optical activity o f the chrom o­ phores are reduced by a factor 3 and 10, respectively. The conformational changes in the peptide with increasing denaturant concentration are not synchronous with those induced in the Chromo­ phore indicating that a m ultistep process is operative during unfolding. The C D results on dena­ turation are supplem ented by absorption and em ission spectroscopy.

 Title    Glutamate Dehydrogenase from Medicago sativa L., Purification and Comparative Kinetic Studies of the Organ-Specific Multiple Forms  
 Abstract    NAD-specific glutamate dehydrogenase [L-glutamate: N A D + oxidoreductase (deaminating) EC 1.4.1.2] from Medicago sativa constitutes organ-specific patterns o f isoenzymes. The isoenzyme-pattems o f seeds (GDH-I) and roots (GDH-II) were purified 1520-fold and 92-fold, respectively. All isoenzymes o f both patterns remain stable throughout the purification procedures. Isoenzyme a7, the only isoenzyme common to both patterns was isolated from the GDH-I pattern. The three enzyme preparations were found to be identical in pH optima, substrate specificity and general ki­ netic properties. A comparative kinetic analysis revealed no pronounced differences between the various kinetic constants evaluated for the three enzyme preparations. Furthermore an identical order of substrate binding and product release could be established. Both initial rate measure­ ments and product inhibition studies are consistent with an ordered ternary-binary kinetic mecha­ nism. The results suggest that tissue-specific enzyme multiplicity of plant glutamate dehydrogen­ ase is not related to differences in general or kinetic properties.

 Title    Competition of Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate with Ribulose 1,5-Bisphosphate and Effector Sugar Phosphates at the Reaction Centers of the Spinach Ribulose 1,5-Bisphosphate Carboxylase/Oxygenase  
 Abstract    Ribulose 1,5-Bisphosphate Carboxylase/Oxygenase, Effector Studies, Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate Inhibition The Stimulation of the carboxylase reaction by effectors o f ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxyl­ ase/oxygenase displays higher sensitivity towards pyridoxal 5'-phosphate inhibition than the catalytical process itself. Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate binding to the enzyme is not affected by the modulators 6-phospho-gluconate and fructose 1,6-bisphosphate at low concentrations at which these agents stimulate the carboxylation rate. At higher concentrations these sugar phosphates protect the enzyme against pyridoxal 5'-phos-phate inhibition in a similar fashion like the substrate ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate. Such protection experiments in combination with spectrophotometrical studies of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate binding demonstrate two binding states o f ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate at the reaction centers o f the enzyme with different requirements for Mg2+. 6-Phosphogluconate functions as protector only in the presence o f Mg2+. Our results imply a competition between pyridoxal 5'-phosphate and substrate or effector sugar phosphates at the reaction centers of the spinach carboxylase. It is proposed that the pyridoxal 5'-phosphate inhibition o f the stimulatory activity o f these effectors originates from a modification o f the regulatory sites o f the enzyme caused by pyridoxal 5'-phosphate binding to the catalytical sites.

 Title    Formation of Cyclic Adenosine-S'-S'-monophosphate (cAMP) from Adenosine-5'-phosphosulfate (APS) in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii CW 15?  
 Abstract    Cyclic AMP, Adenosine-5'-phosphosulfate, Adenosine-5'-phosphoramidate, APS-Cyclase, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii Levels of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) have been determined in the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii strain CW 15. In the early exponential growth no cAMP was detected, however, in the middle o f the exponential growth phase 2.4 pmol cAMP/mg protein were found and the cAMP level increased to 18.8 pmol/mg protein in the stationary phase. An enzyme fraction has been isolated from Chlamydomonas, which produced cAMP in vitro using adenosine-5'-phosphosulfate (APS) as a substrate. This protein fraction was isolated by am-moniumsulfate precipitation, DEAE-cellulose chromatography and Sephadex-G-100 gel filtration. A solvent system was developed for thin layer chromatography to separate cAMP from APS, adenosine-5'-phosphoramidat (APN), 5'-AMP and adenosine. The product was identified as cAMP by cochromatography, coelectrophoresis, treatment with phosphodiesterase, chromato­ graphy on Biorad-columns and by the protein-binding assay. The so far purified protein fraction produced 151 pmol cAMP/mg protein and hour in vitro, using APS as a substrate.

 Title    Tropomyosin-Troponin-Induced Changes in the Partitioning of Free Energy Release of Actomyosin-Catalyzed ATP Hydrolysis as Measured by ATP-Phosphate Exchange  
 Abstract    ATPase activity and ATP-Pj exchange o f unregulated (without tropomyosin-troponin) and regulated (with tropomyosin-troponin) acto-HMM were measured in media containing 0.2 mg/ml actin, HMM, and (when present) tropomyosin-troponin, 2 m M MgCl2, 10 m M KC1, 2 m M N aN 3, 10 m M Pi (pH 7.0), 3 mM ATP. The following mean values for ATPase activity and for the rate o f incorporation of P, into ATP (each per mg HMM and per min) were obtained: unregulated acto-HMM 0.33 |imol Pj and 0.33 nmol Pi? regulated acto-HMM 0.54 nmol Pi and 1.06 nmol P*. The ratio o f P4 incorporation rate to ATPase activity was 1.01 x 10-3 for unregulated and 2.02 x 10-3 for regulated acto-HMM. From these ratios and from the overall free energy change o f ATP hydrolysis it was calculated that under the prevailing experimental conditions in unregulated acto-HMM 62% and in regulated acto-HMM 66% o f the free energy change o f ATP hydrolysis occurs after the release o f phosphate from actomyosin. It is probably this part of the free energy change that is used by the muscle for the performance o f work.

 Title    Ammonia Assimilation by Thiocapsa roseopersicina Grown on Various Nitrogen and Carbon/Electron Sources  
 Abstract    Batch cultures o f the phototrophic bacterium, Thiocapsa roseopersicina, were grown anaero­ bically in the light either on sulfide with various ammonia concentrations, N 2 or amino acids as nitrogen sources, or on several simple organic substrates in the absence o f reduced sulfur com­ pounds using 6 mM N H 4C1 as source o f nitrogen. At high ammonia concentrations high activities of (NADPH-linked) glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH), but rather low transferase and no bio­ synthetic activity of glutamine synthetase (GS) were obtained, while under conditions o f ammonia deficiency (growth with N 2 or glutamate) GDH activity was very low and both GS activities were strongly increased. Glutamate synthase (GOGAT) activity (NADH-dependent) showed little variation. These data indicate that at high NH+ concentrations ammonia is assimilated via GDH, under NHJ limitation, however, via the G S/G O G A T system. Glutamine as nitrogen source may be utilized via GOGAT as well as via an active glutaminase plus GDH. Ammonia, but not glutamine, seems to cause repression and inactivation of GS. Alanine and asparagine inactivate the enzyme inhibiting the biosynthetic, but not the transferase activity. These amino acids in part also influence the activities o f GDH, GOGAT, malate dehydrogenase (MDH) and isocitrate dehydro­ genase (ICDH). Cultures grown on acetate or pyruvate instead of sulfide showed increased GDH activities and high GS transferase activities possibly reflecting an increase o f intracellular a-ketoglutarate con­ centration. On malate or fructose also increased GS transferase activities, but rather low GDH activities were observed. High biosynthetic GS activities and elevated GOGAT activities were found only in fructose-grown cells. On the organic substrates the ICDH activities always were somewhat higher than after lithoautotrophic growth. With the exception of acetate, the MDH activities were considerably elevated, especially on pyruvate. The different pathways of ar-keto-glutarate formation and their influence on the enzymes of ammonia assimilation are discussed.
