Drosophila P elements are mobile DNA elements that encode an 87-kDa transposase enzyme and transpositional repressor proteins. One of these repressor proteins is the 207-amino-acid KP protein which is encoded by a naturally occurring P element with an internal deletion. To study the molecular mechanisms by which KP represses transposition, the protein was(More)
P elements are a family of mobile DNA elements found in Drosophila. P-element transposition is tightly regulated, and P-element-encoded repressor proteins are responsible for inhibiting transposition in vivo. To investigate the molecular mechanisms by which one of these repressors, the KP protein, inhibits transposition, a variety of mutant KP proteins were(More)
The Met tyrosine kinase receptor is a widely expressed molecule, which mediates pleiotropic cellular responses following activation by its ligand, hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF). Previously, one of the authors identified an alternatively spliced form of Met (Met-SM) that lacked a single exon of a 47-amino-acid segment in the juxtamembrane(More)
We have previously identified a chromosomal rearrangement between fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) and a novel gene, FRAG1, in a rodent model of osteosarcoma. To assess the potential role of FRAG1 in disease further, we have isolated cDNA and genomic clones of human FRAG1. Sequence analysis of the cDNA revealed the presence of an insertion not(More)
