The non-essential mouse proteasome beta-type subunits LMP2 and LMP7 are thought to connect proteasomes to the MHC class I antigen processing pathway. Both subunits are synthesized as proproteins. We have studied the processing of both subunits, correlated with the maturation of 20 S proteasomes in mouse T cells. Our data show that proteasome assembly occurs(More)
Cytotoxic T lymphocytes recognize fragments (peptides) of protein antigens presented by major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules. In general, the peptides are derived from cytosolic proteins and are then transported to the endoplasmic reticulum where they assemble with the MHC class I heavy chains and beta 2-microglobulin to form stable and(More)
The lipid bilayer is the diffusion barrier of biological membranes. Highly protective membranes such as the blood-brain barrier (BBB) are reinforced by ABC transporters such as P-glycoprotein (MDR1, ABCB1) and multidrug resistance associated proteins (MRPs, ABCCs). The transporters bind their substrates in the cytosolic lipid bilayer leaflet before they(More)
The cross-sectional area, AD, of a compound oriented in an amphiphilic gradient such as the air-water or lipid-water interface has previously been shown to be crucial for membrane partitioning and permeation, respectively. Here, we developed an algorithm that determines the molecular axis of amphiphilicity and the cross-sectional area, ADcalc, perpendicular(More)
