NHERF, a 55 kDa PDZ-containing protein, binds receptors and ion transporters to mediate signal transduction at the plasma membrane. Recombinant NHERF demonstrated an apparent size of 150 kDa on gel filtration, which could be reduced to approximately 55 kDa by protein denaturing agents, consistent with the formation of NHERF dimers.

Fatal chemotherapy overdoses at prestigious institutions have prompted extensive reviews of policies and procedures in medical centers throughout the country. Improving medication use systems for chemotherapy requires a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach. A process to develop a medical center policy on chemotherapy based on the medication use model(More)
Prior studies have indicated a requirement for the PDZ domain-containing protein, Na(+)/H(+) Exchanger Regulatory Factor (NHERF), for protein kinase A (PKA)-mediated inhibition of the renal basolateral Na(+)-HCO(3)(-) co-transporter (NBC). The present studies explore the potential mechanisms by which NHERF transduces cAMP signals to inhibit NBC. In BSC-1(More)
PURPOSE An integrated effort to maintain continued access to pharmacy services and prescribed medications for patients in an inner-city community before and during the implementation of the Medicare prescription drug benefit is described. SUMMARY An academic medical center and college of pharmacy in a culturally diverse, inner-city Chicago community(More)
The murine tumor cell DnaJ-like protein 1 or MTJ1/ERdj1 is a membrane J-domain protein enriched in microsomal and nuclear fractions. We previously showed that its lumenal J-domain stimulates the ATPase activity of the molecular chaperone BiP/GRP78 (Chevalier, M., Rhee, H., Elguindi, E. C., and Blond, S. Y. (2000) J. Biol. Chem. 275, 19620-19627). MTJ1/ERdj1(More)
