The characteristics of protein tyrosine phosphorylation were examined in Rat-1 fibroblasts in response to endothelin-1 (ET-1) and 1-oleoyl-lysophosphatidic acid (LPA). Both agonists stimulated the biphasic tyrosine phosphorylation of at least three major proteins of approx. 120 kDa (pp116, pp120 and pp130) and two of 80 kDa (pp80 and pp70).(More)
The arrangement of the proton-translocating formate dehydrogenase of the anaerobic respiratory chain of Escherichia coli within the cytoplasmic membrane was examined by direct covalent modification with non-membrane-permeant reagents. Three methods were employed, lactoperoxidase-catalysed radioiodination, labelling with diazotized [125I] di-iodosulphanilic(More)
The lux C, D, and E genes of the Vibrio fischeri luminescence operon code for three polypeptides of 54, 33, and 42 kDa, respectively, which are required for synthesis of the aldehyde substrate for the luminescent reaction. These polypeptides have been identified in V. fischeri and V. harveyi as well as in recombinant E. coli harboring the cloned genes by(More)
Serial passage of reovirus temperature-sensitive (ts) mutant C(447) produced by passage 9 (P9) a heavily defective population of virus from which the double-stranded RNA genomic segments L(1), L(3), and M(1) were largely missing. Viral cores obtained from this P9 population were heterogeneous with respect to buoyant density in CsCl gradients, suggesting(More)
The DNA downstream of the lux structural genes in the Vibrio fischeri lux operon has been sequenced and a new lux gene (luxG) has been identified. A hairpin loop that begins with a poly(A) region and ends with a poly(T) region and thus can function as a bidirectional termination site for luxG and a convergent gene is located immediately downstream of luxG.(More)
DNA coding for the alpha and beta subunits of Vibrio harveyi luciferase, the luxA and luxB genes, and the adjoining chromosomal regions on both sides of these genes (total of 18 kilobase pairs) was cloned into Escherichia coli. Using labeled DNA coding for the alpha subunit as a hybridization probe, we identified a set of polycistronic mRNAs (2.6, 4, 7, and(More)
1. In this study we examined the signalling events that regulate lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated induction of interferon regulatory factor (IRF)-1 in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). 2. LPS stimulated a time- and concentration-dependent increase in IRF-1 protein expression, an effect that was mimicked by the cytokine, tumour necrosis(More)
