H1 histones, isolated from logarithmically growing and mitotically enriched human lymphoblastic T-cells (CCRF-CEM), were fractionated by reversed phase and hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography, subjected to enzymatic digestion, and analyzed by amino acid sequencing and mass spectrometry. During interphase the four H1 subtypes present in these cells(More)
Methylation of the N-terminal region of histones was first described more than 35 years ago, but its biological significance has remained unclear. Proposed functions range from transcriptional regulation to the higher order packing of chromatin in progress of mitotic condensation. Primarily because of the recent discovery of the SET domain-depending(More)
Penicillium antifungal protein (PAF) is a promising antimycotic without toxic effects on mammalian cells and therefore may represent a drug candidate against the often lethal Aspergillus infections that occur in humans. The pathogenesis of PAF on sensitive fungi involves G-protein coupled signalling followed by apoptosis. In the present study, the solution(More)
Histone H1(0) is known to consist of two subfractions named H1(0)a and H1(0)b. The present work was performed with the aim of elucidating the nature of these two subfractions. By using reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography in combination with hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography, we fractionated human histone H1(0) into even four(More)
Methylation and acetylation of position-specific lysine residues in the N-terminal tail of histones H3 and H4 play an important role in regulating chromatin structure and function. In the case of H3-Lys(4), H3-Lys(9), H3-Lys(27), and H4-Lys(20), the degree of methylation was variable from the mono- to the di- or trimethylated state, each of which was(More)
CONTEXT Previous studies have implicated a deficiency in the inflammatory response in women who develop endometriosis. The specific immunological deficits have not been completely elucidated. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to identify differences in protein expression in serum that might shed light on the pathophysiology of endometriosis. DESIGN AND(More)
The cell cycle-associated phosphorylation of histone H1.5 is manifested as three discrete phosphorylated forms, occurring exclusively on Ser17, Ser172, and Ser188 during interphase. During late G2 and mitosis the up-phosphorylation occurs exclusively on threonine at either Thr137 or Thr154 to build the tetraphosphorylated forms of H1.5, whereas the(More)
Antiangiogenic effects of the proteasome inhibitor bortezomib were analyzed on tumor xenografts in vivo. Bortezomib strongly inhibited angiogenesis and vascularization in the chicken chorioallantoic membrane. Bortezomib's inhibitory effects on chorioallantoic membrane vascularization were abrogated in the presence of distinct tumor xenografts, thanks to a(More)
BACKGROUND The specific forms of pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (proBNP) that occur in human blood are not yet clear. We demonstrated the presence of several proBNP forms in human plasma with a new affinity chromatography method that can be used in combination with nano-liquid chromatography electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry(More)
Hydrophilic-interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) has recently been introduced as a highly efficient chromatographic technique for the separation of a wide range of solutes. The present work was performed with the aim of evaluating the potential utility of HILIC for the separation of postranslationally acetylated histones. The protein fractionations(More)
