Annexin II, a member of the annexin family of Ca(2+)- and lipid-binding proteins, is a major substrate of the pp60src kinase. It is unique within the annexin protein family, since it can form a tight heterotetrameric complex with the cellular protein ligand p11, a member of the S100 protein family. Within the cell, the annexin II2p11(2) complex is localized(More)
Pseudomonas lemoignei is equipped with at least five polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) depolymerase structural genes (phaZ1 to phaZ5) which enable the bacterium to utilize extracellular poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB), poly(3-hydroxyvalerate) (PHV), and related polyesters consisting of short-chain-length hxdroxyalkanoates (PHA(SCL)) as the sole sources of carbon and(More)
Annexin II, a major cytoplasmic substrate of the src tyrosine kinase, is a member of the annexin family of Ca2+/phospholipid-binding proteins. It is composed of a short N-terminal tail (30 residues) followed by four so-called annexin repeats (each 70-80 residues in length) which share sequence homologies and are thought to form (a) new type(s) of(More)
Recombinant annexin II mutants were generated to identify amino acids involved in the formation of the discontinuous epitope of the monoclonal antibody H28. Analysis of the various mutant proteins by immunoblotting and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay revealed that residues Lys27, Arg62, Glu65, and Arg67 are indispensable for H28 reactivity. Residues in(More)
Murine teratocarcinoma F9 cells, which remain undifferentiated under standard cell culture conditions, can form cellular layers resembling early embryonic tissues upon induction of differentiation by retinoic acid and cyclic AMP. We have employed a combination of Northern and Western blot analyses to elucidate the regulation of expression of the tyrosine(More)
The mitotic spindle in eukaryotic cells is composed of a bipolar array of microtubules (MTs) and associated proteins that are required during mitosis for the correct partitioning of the two sets of chromosomes to the daughter cells. In addition to the well-established functions of MT-associated proteins (MAPs) and MT-based motors in cell division, there is(More)
Physiological and ultrastructural studies of synapses between hippocampal neurons of animals with knock-out of a mammalian actin-binding protein, mAbp1, demonstrated that recycling of synaptic vesicles undergoes, in this case, significant modifications. Thus, mAbp1 is rather important from this aspect, which can be related to the noticeable role of actin in(More)
Myosin motor proteins convert chemical energy into force and movement through their interactions with nucleotide and filamentous actin (F-actin). The evolutionarily conserved lysine-265 (K265) of the myosin-2 motor from Dictyostelium discoideum (Dd) is proposed to be a key residue in an allosteric communication pathway that mediates actin-nucleotide(More)
Annexin II (AnxII) is one of the Ca(2+)-dependent membrane- and phospholipid-binding proteins (annexins) which are encoded by a multigene family. AnxII was originally described as a major cellular substrate for the tyrosine kinase encoded by the src oncogene, and is also phosphorylated by protein kinase C in vivo and in vitro.
