The nucleotide sequences of rbsD, rbsA, and rbsC have been determined. These genes encode components of the high affinity ribose transport system in Escherichia coli, and together with the sequences of rbsB (Groarke, J.M., Mahoney, W.C., Hope, J.N., Furlong, C.E., Robb, F.T., Zalkin, H., and Hermodson, M.A. (1983) J. Biol. Chem. 258, 12952-12956) and rbsK(More)
A mass spectrometric analysis of proteins partitioning into Triton X-114 from purified hepatic Golgi apparatus (84% purity by morphometry, 122-fold enrichment over the homogenate for the Golgi marker galactosyl transferase) led to the unambiguous identification of 81 proteins including a novel Golgi-associated protein of 34 kDa (GPP34). The membrane protein(More)
We report more than 1400 proteins of the secretory-pathway proteome and provide spatial information on the relative presence of each protein in the rough and smooth ER Golgi cisternae and Golgi-derived COPI vesicles. The data support a role for COPI vesicles in recycling and cisternal maturation, showing that Golgi-resident proteins are present at a higher(More)
Despite numerous advances in the identification of the molecular machinery for clathrin-mediated budding at the plasma membrane, the mechanistic details of this process remain incomplete. Moreover, relatively little is known regarding the regulation of clathrin-mediated budding at other membrane systems. To address these issues, we have utilized the(More)
The TUC (TOAD-64/Ulip/CRMP) proteins are homologs of UNC-33, a protein that is required for axon extension and guidance in Caenorhabditis elegans. The TUC proteins are expressed in newly born neurons in the developing nervous system and have been implicated in semaphorin signaling and neuronal polarity. Here, we identify several new variants of the TUC(More)
Many biological processes are coupled to ATP hydrolysis. We describe here a class of closely related ATP-binding proteins, from several bacterial species, which are associated with a variety of cellular functions including membrane transport, cell division, nodulation in Rhizobium and haemolysin export. These proteins comprise a family of structurally and(More)
GTP phosphorylation of rough microsomes in vitro is limited to four integral membrane proteins. Two of these, a phosphoprotein (pp90) and a phosphoglycoprotein (pgp35) were purified as a complex with two nonphosphorylated membrane glycoproteins, gp25H and gp25L. The authenticity of this complex was confirmed using two different purification procedures and(More)
We have investigated the relevant protease activity in rat liver, which is responsible for most of the receptor-mediated epidermal growth factor (EGF) degradation in vivo. EGF was sequentially cleaved by endosomal proteases at a limited number of sites, which were identified by high performance liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. EGF proteolysis is(More)
Chondroitin lyases (EC 4.2.2.4 and EC 4.2.2.5) are glycosaminoglycan-degrading enzymes that act as eliminases. Chondroitin lyase AC from Arthrobacter aurescens (ArthroAC) is known to act on chondroitin 4-sulfate and chondroitin 6-sulfate but not on dermatan sulfate. Like other chondroitin AC lyases, it is capable of cleaving hyaluronan. We have determined(More)
The acidic glucagon-degrading activity of hepatic endosomes has been attributed to membrane-bound forms of cathepsins B and D. Endosomal lysates processed full-length nonradiolabeled glucagon to 32 different peptides that were identified by amino acid analysis and full-length sequencing. These indicated C-terminal carboxypeptidase, endopeptidase as well as(More)
