Histone methyltransferases direct different degrees of methylation to define distinct chromatin domains.
The functional significance of mono-, di-, and trimethylation of lysine residues within histone proteins remains unclear. Antibodies developed to selectively recognize each of these methylated statesExpand

Differential regulation of CENP-A and histone H3 phosphorylation in G2/M.
After DNA replication, cells condense their chromosomes in order to segregate them during mitosis. The condensation process as well as subsequent segregation requires phosphorylation of histone H3 atExpand

Molecular cloning and expression of a cDNA encoding endothelial cell nitric oxide synthase.
Endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF), identified as nitric oxide (NO), is derived from a guanidino nitrogen of L-arginine via its metabolism by nitric oxide synthase (NOS). Herein, we reportExpand

Characterization of phosphorylation sites on histone H1 isoforms by tandem mass spectrometry.
Histone H1 isoforms isolated from asynchronously grown HeLa cells were subjected to enzymatic digestion and analyzed by nano-flow reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC)Expand

The enhancement of histone H4 and H2A serine 1 phosphorylation during mitosis and S-phase is evolutionarily conserved
Histone phosphorylation has long been associated with condensed mitotic chromatin; however, the functional roles of these modifications are not yet understood. Histones H1 and H3 are highlyExpand

RTA, a candidate G protein-coupled receptor: cloning, sequencing, and tissue distribution.
Genomic and cDNA clones, encoding a protein that is a member of the guanine nucleotide-binding regulatory protein (G protein)-coupled receptor superfamily, were isolated by screening rat genomic andExpand

Mutation of N-myristoylation site converts endothelial cell nitric oxide synthase from a membrane to a cytosolic protein.
Endothelial cell nitric oxide synthase (ECNOS) is a membrane-associated enzyme that generates endothelium-derived relaxing factor/nitric oxide (EDRF/NO) from L-arginine. We have suggested, from theExpand

Modifications of human histone H3 variants during mitosis.
Phosphorylation of histone H3 is a hallmark event in mitosis and is associated with chromosome condensation. Here, we use a combination of immobilized metal affinity chromatography and tandem massExpand

Molecular cloning of a novel rat G‐protein‐coupled receptor gene expressed prominently in lung, adrenal, and liver
A gene and cDNA (named G10d) encoding a novel member of the G‐protein‐coupled receptor (GCR) superfamily has been isolated from a rat genomic library and a rat liver cDNA library by tandom polymeraseExpand

Molecular characterization of a rat alpha 2B-adrenergic receptor.
Alpha 2-adrenergic receptors comprise a heterogeneous population based on pharmacologic and molecular evidence. We have isolated a cDNA clone (pRNG alpha 2) encoding a rat alpha 2-adrenergicExpand
