Nonaspanins are characterised by a large N-terminal extracellular domain and nine putative transmembrane domains. This evolutionarily conserved family comprises three members in Dictyostelium discoideum (Phg1A, Phg1B and Phg1C) and Drosophila melanogaster, and four in mammals (TM9SF1-TM9SF4), the function of which is essentially unknown. Genetic studies in(More)
Initially described as a nonspecific degradation process induced upon starvation, autophagy is now known also to be involved in the degradation of specific ubiquitinated substrates such as mitochondria, bacteria and aggregated proteins, ensuring crucial functions in cell physiology and immunity. We report here that the deubiquitinating enzyme USP36 controls(More)
We have shown that several isoforms of triadin, a protein involved in calcium release process through the ryanodine receptor, are expressed in rat skeletal muscle, and we have cloned two of these isoforms. One is the rat homolog of the 95-kDa triadin identified in rabbit skeletal muscle, and the second one, shorter, is a truncated form of the previous one,(More)
We have cloned two new triadin isoforms from rat skeletal muscle, Trisk 49 and Trisk 32, which were named according to their theoretical molecular masses (49 and 32 kDa, respectively). Specific antibodies directed against each protein were produced to characterize both new triadins. Both are expressed in adult rat skeletal muscle, and their expression in(More)
Murine embryonic stem (ES) cells are able to differentiate into erythroid, mast, and granulomonocytic cells by using appropriate culture conditions. Because we were interested in the regulation of tissue-specific expression of the platelet glycoprotein IIb gene, we studied the culture conditions, aiming at the reproducible production of myeloid cells that(More)
Ubiquitin proteases remove ubiquitin monomers or polymers to modify the stability or activity of proteins and thereby serve as key regulators of signal transduction. Here, we describe the function of the Drosophila ubiquitin-specific protease 36 (dUSP36) in negative regulation of the immune deficiency (IMD) pathway controlled by the IMD protein.(More)
Glycoprotein IIb (GPIIb) is an early and specific marker of the megakaryocytic lineage. We have previously shown that a fragment extending 643 base pairs upstream the transcription start site of the human GPIIb promoter was able to control the tissue-specific expression of the CAT gene in transfection experiments. Four potential GATA-binding sites, located(More)
Much information on regulation of the transcription of megakaryocytic genes stems from studies on the glycoprotein IIb (GPIIb) gene, an early and specific marker of this lineage. Transcriptional activity is controlled by the association of positive promoter elements corresponding to binding sites for the transcription factor GATA-1 and a member of the Ets(More)
The gene coding for glycoprotein IIb (GPIIb), the alpha subunit of platelet integrin GPIIb/IIIa is an early and specific marker of the megakaryocytic lineage. Thus, studies on the regulation of this gene may provide helpful information on the mechanisms controlling cell specificity and differentiation in this lineage. The promoter region of this gene was(More)
We obtained the gene organization of human triadin gene by aligning the DNA coding sequence of human 95-kDa triadin (Trisk 95) with human genomic database. We identified a novel human triadin isoform, a potential human homologue of rat Trisk 51. We show that both isoforms of triadin, Trisk 51 and Trisk 95, are alternative splice variants of the same gene.(More)
