The lectin wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), which has been reported to inhibit nuclear protein uptake in vitro by isolated nuclei (Finlay et al. (1987) J. Cell Biol. 104, 189), also blocks, on microinjection into living cells, the migration of proteins into the cell nucleus. Radioactively labeled nuclear proteins were injected into the cytoplasm of Xenopus(More)
Low-pH-induced hemolysis of erythrocytes is inhibited by dextrans. The protective effect was observed with dextrans larger than 40 kDa. Electron microscopy showed dextrans of 150 kDa in a tight association with the erythrocyte membrane. These results indicate that dextrans stop the low-pH-induced hemolysis by interacting with the acid-induced defects in the(More)
Fluorescence microphotolysis was employed to measure in single living cells the kinetics of nucleocytoplasmic transport and the coefficients of intracellular diffusional mobility for the nuclear non-chromosomal protein nucleoplasmin. Nucleoplasmin was isolated from Xenopus ovary and labeled fluorescently. By injection into Xenopus oocytes it was ascertained(More)
The nuclear poly(A) binding protein (PABPN1) stimulates poly(A) polymerase and controls the lengths of poly(A) tails during pre-mRNA processing. The wild-type protein possesses 10 consecutive Ala residues immediately after the start methionine. Trinucleotide expansions in the coding sequence result in an extension of the Ala stretch to maximal 17 Ala(More)

The low-pH interaction of proteins with erythrocyte membranes has been found to be correlated with pH-induced changes in the erythrocyte membrane. Using a 90 degree lightscattering method it was shown that red blood cell hemolysis was slow between pH 5.8 and 5 (t1/2 above 1 h) but became fast at and below pH 4.7 (t1/2 less than 20 min). At pH 4.7, the(More)
Glycophorin and CD4 proteins are tightly associated with intact human erythrocyte membranes after a short-time incubation at low pH (1-2 min, pH lower than 5, 37 degrees C). Flow cytometry and epifluorescence microscope observations showed that after incubation of red cells with fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) labeled glycophorin at pH values lower than(More)
Cytosolic Ca2+ concentration, [Ca2+]i, and aggregation behavior of hirudinized platelet suspensions were examined under stimulation with thrombin, adenosine diphosphate, platelet-activating factor, collagen and the calcium ionophore, ionomycin. A rise in [Ca2+]i, a key step in platelet activation, was only inhibited by recombinant hirudin r-hirudin using(More)
