1 The small protein Bv8, secreted by the skin of the frog Bombina variegata, belongs to a novel family of secreted proteins whose orthologues have been identified in snakes (MIT) and in mammals (prokineticins (PKs)). A characteristic feature of this protein family is the same N-terminal sequence, AVITGA, and the presence of 10 cysteines with identical(More)
The synthetic flavone flavopiridol can be cytostatic or cytotoxic to mammalian cells, depending on the concentration of the drug and the duration of exposure. It has been shown to inhibit the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) family of cell cycle regulatory enzymes. However, the existence of additional potential targets for drug action remains a matter of(More)
Flavopiridol has been shown to induce cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in various tumor cells in vitro and in vivo. Using immobilized flavopiridol, we identified glycogen phosphorylases (GP) from liver and brain as flavopiridol binding proteins from HeLa cell extract. Purified rabbit muscle GP also bound to the flavopiridol affinity column. GP is the(More)
