The processing of pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) was examined in GH3 cells, a rat sommatomammotrope cell line, by transiently-transfecting the cells with mouse POMC cDNA. The peptide products were extracted, chromatographed on HPLC and identified by specific radioimmunoassay. POMC was processed to generate ACTH-related peptides, beta-endorphin and Lys-gamma 3-(More)
The subcellular localization and functionality of transfected yeast aspartic protease 3 (YAP3p) in a mammalian cell line were investigated. The complementary DNAs encoding the prohormone-processing enzyme (YAP3p) and a prohormone, bovine POMC, were cotransfected into PC12 (rat pheochromocytoma) cells. Immunocytochemical analysis of the cells using a YAP3p(More)
BACKGROUND p21(WAF1/CIP1/SDI1), a cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor has been shown to influence cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis; but more recently, p21 has been implicated in tissue repair. Studies on p21(-/-) knockout mice have demonstrated results that vary from complete regeneration and healing of tissue to attenuated healing. There(More)
