Because of the broad clinical interest which tissue polypeptide antigen (TPA) has attracted as a tumor marker, human cell lines and human tissues have been analyzed for TPA expression using immunofluorescence microscopy. Epithelial cell lines including HeLa, MCF-7, and A-431 are recognized by TPA antibodies whereas human lines of non-epithelial origin are(More)
Tissue Polypeptide Antigen (TPA)*** which is a protein isolated from e.g. human carcinoma cells, has previously been separated into subfractions and studied with biochemical methods. Gel diffusion studies show that the antigenic determinants are retained through the isolation and purification procedures. Specific modifications of the amino acid residues(More)
We describe a novel approach to study tyrosine-phosphorylated (PY) integrins in cells transformed by virally encoded tyrosine kinases. We have synthesized a peptide (PY beta 1 peptide) that represents a portion of the cytoplasmic domain of the beta 1 integrin subunit and is phosphorylated on the tyrosine residue known to be the target of oncogenic tyrosine(More)
Bone sialoprotein contains a cell-binding RGD sequence followed by a threonine residue. Since the protein is extensively phosphorylated, this threonine may also be modified. To study whether such a phosphorylation may alter cell-binding properties, the hexapeptide Pro-Arg-Gly-Asp-Thr(O-phosphoryl)-Tyr has been synthesized by the Fmoc technique using benzyl(More)
Phosphoserine peptides related to the casein kinase II substrate consensus sequence ESLSSSEE have been synthesized using N-Boc-O-diallylphosphono-L-serine by solid-phase methods. The allyl groups were removed, while the peptide was still attached to the solid support, by Pd0 with azide as the nucleophile. Far UV circular dichroism measurements indicate that(More)
