Exosomes are small membrane vesicles that are released into the extracellular environment during fusion of multivesicular bodies with plasma membrane. Exosomes are secreted by various cell types including hematopoietic cells, normal epithelial cells and even some tumor cells. They are known to carry MHC class I, various costimulatory molecules and some(More)
Human Bfl-1 is an anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 family member. Here, we found that Bfl-1 was converted into a potent death-promoting protein by green fluorescent protein (GFP) fusion with its N-terminus. The transient expression of GFP-Bfl-1 induced cytochrome c release and triggered apoptosis in 293T cells, which depended on the mitochondrial localization of(More)
Asparagus officinalis seedlings treated with either thiocarbamates or carbamates are induced to flower within 2-3 weeks of application. SDS-PAGE and 2-D PAGE resolutions of total soluble proteins of treated seedlings showed the accumulation of an acidic 17 kDa polypeptide. Partial amino acid sequence of the acidic protein showed homology to the(More)
