Monoclonal antibodies were prepared against pyruvate kinase (PyKi; ATP: pyruvate phosphotransferase, EC 22.214.171.124) and used to quantitate PyKi content in L2 lung cells and WI-38 fibroblasts cultivated under hypoxic and normoxic conditions. After 96 h of hypoxic cultivation, PyKi activity was significantly increased in both cell types (L2: normoxia [Po2 = 142 torr], 0.11 +/- 0.01 [SD]; hypoxia [Po2 = 14 torr], 0.25 +/- 0.04 U/microgram DNA, P < 0.01). PyKi content increased proportionately in both cell lines (L2: normoxia, 0.44 +/- 0.13; hypoxia, 0.94 +/- 0.13 microgram enzyme protein/microgram DNA). Specific activity was not significantly different after 96 h (L2: normoxia, 261 +/- 11; hypoxia, 261 +/- 14 U/mg enzyme protein). These results indicate that regulation of glycolysis during chronic hypoxia occurs at the level of enzyme content. Chronic O2 depletion leads to either an increased rate of biosynthesis or a decreased rate of biodegradation of PyKi, causing augmented glycolytic capacity. Monoclonal antibodies provide a highly specific, convenient approach to charcterizing enzymes, as well as quantitating cellular enzyme content. PMID:7440714

Recent theoretical study of the chiral graphene nanoribbons(CGNR) has demonstrated the magnetic ordering of the edge states below a certain chiral angle1. Based on the Hubbard model for the CGNR, we study the static properties of the magnetic edge states such as the intra-edge and inter-edge spin stiffness, which are the two crucial parameters to control the thermodynamics of the effective magnetic hamiltonian. For the systematic study of the anti-ferromagnetic inter-edge spin correlations, we calculate the inter-edge spin stiffness as a function of ribbon width and transverse electric field. We also attempt to calculate the electronic and magnetic properties for the other edge geometries such as a reconstructed edge geometry, which has been experimentally confirmed as an edge shape other than zigzag or armchair nanoribbon2 1.
