In Escherichia coli, acetylation of proteins at lysines depends largely on a non-enzymatic acetyl phosphate-dependent mechanism. To assess the functional significance of this post-translational modification, we first grew wild-type cells in buffered tryptone broth with glucose and monitored acetylation over time by immunochemistry. Most acetylation occurred(More)
Tumors that develop in lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) as a consequence of biallelic loss of TSC1 or TSC2 gene function express melanoma differentiation antigens. However, the percentage of LAM cells expressing these melanosomal antigens is limited. Here, we report the overexpression of ganglioside D3 (GD3) in LAM. GD3 is a tumor-associated antigen otherwise(More)
Complex media are routinely used to cultivate diverse bacteria. However, this complexity can obscure the factors that govern cell growth. While studying protein acetylation in buffered tryptone broth supplemented with glucose (TB7-glucose), we observed that Escherichia coli did not fully consume glucose prior to stationary phase. However, when we(More)
