We have recently shown that in PC12 cells, PACAP and NGF synergistically increase PACAP gene transcription and mRNA level, and that the MAPK/ERK kinase inhibitor PD98059 blocks the PACAP mRNA expression induced by either PACAP or NGF, but not that induced by the combination, suggesting involvement of multiple signaling pathways. Here we show that the p38(More)
We have recently shown that in PC12 cells, pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) and NGF synergistically stimulate PACAP mRNA expression primarily via a mechanism involving a p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)-dependent pathway. Here we have analyzed p38 MAPK activation by PACAP and the mechanism underlying this action of PACAP(More)
Streptomyces lividans FtsY (SlFtsY) was cloned and overexpressed in Escherichia coli. Analysis of the amino acid (aa) sequence showed a concentration of hydrophilic aa's in the N-terminal half region of SlFtsY as observed in that of E. coli FtsY (EcFtsY). However, the length of the hydrophilic region was shorter in SlFtsY than in EcFtsY. Overexpression of(More)
