We have found that the mammalian Ran GTPase-activating protein RanGAP1 is highly concentrated at the cytoplasmic periphery of the nuclear pore complex (NPC), where it associates with the 358-kDa Ran-GTP-binding protein RanBP2. This interaction requires the ATP-dependent posttranslational conjugation of RanGAP1 with SUMO-1 (for small ubiquitin-related(More)
RanBP2, a protein containing FG repeat motifs and four binding sites for the guanosine triphosphatase Ran, is localized at the cytoplasmic periphery of the nuclear pore complex (NPC) and is believed to play a critical role in nuclear protein import. We purified RanBP2 from rat liver nuclear envelopes and examined its structural and biochemical properties.(More)
During the postnatal development, astrocytic cells in the neocortex progressively lose their neural stem cell (NSC) potential, whereas this peculiar attribute is preserved in the adult subventricular zone (SVZ). To understand this fundamental difference, many reports suggest that adult subventricular GFAP-expressing cells might be maintained in immature(More)
We report here that the negative cell cycle regulator protein p53 is an in vivo and in vitro substrate for protein kinase C, a cellular receptor for the tumor-promoter phorbol esters. We also demonstrate that p53 interacts in a calcium-dependent manner with S100b, a member of the S100 protein family involved in cell cycle progression and cell(More)
The use of permeabilized cell models to study nuclear protein import has led to the identification of cytosolic components of the import machinery, including the NLS receptor, p97, Ran/TC4, and nuclear transport factor 2 (NTF2). These proteins are required to reconstitute docking of transport ligand at the nuclear pore complex and subsequent translocation(More)
Remodelling of the plasma membrane cytoarchitecture is crucial for the regulation of epithelial cell adhesion and permeability. In Madin-Darby canine kidney cells, the protein AHNAK relocates from the cytosol to the cytosolic surface of the plasma membrane during the formation of cell-cell contacts and the development of epithelial polarity. This targeting(More)
The Zn(2+)- and Ca(2+)-binding S100B protein is implicated in multiple intracellular and extracellular regulatory events. In glial cells, a relationship exists between cytoplasmic S100B accumulation and cell morphological changes. We have identified the IQGAP1 protein as the major cytoplasmic S100B target protein in different rat and human glial cell lines(More)
A 25 kbp DNA fragment from the chromosome of Rhodobacter capsulatus B10 carrying hydrogenase (hup) determinants was completely sequenced. Coding regions corresponding to 20 open reading frames were identified. The R. capsulatus hydrogenase-specific gene (hup and hyp) products bear significant structural identity to hydrogenase gene products from Escherichia(More)
Selective immunoisolation of P53 from Sf9 cells coexpressing wild-type P53 and casein kinase II yielded a preparation containing casein kinase II, thus suggesting that the two proteins may associate in a molecular complex in the intact cell. Such a complex could indeed be demonstrated in vitro between purified recombinant P53 and oligomeric casein kinase II(More)
Clone 112 cells, a rat embryo fibroblast cell line cotransfected by an activated ras gene and a temperature-sensitive mutant p53 gene (p53val135) grow well at 37 degrees C but cease DNA synthesis and cell division when shifted to 32 degrees C (Michalovitz, D., Halevy, O., and Oren, M. (1990) Cell 62, 671-680). Characterization of the p53 protein in(More)
