Vinculin: A cytoskeletal target of the transforming protein of rous sarcoma virus
Vinculin, a protein associated with the cytoplasmic face of the focal adhesion plaques which anchor actin-containing microfilaments to the plasma membrane and attach a cell to the substratum,Expand

Stomatin-Like Protein 2 Binds Cardiolipin and Regulates Mitochondrial Biogenesis and Function
ABSTRACT Stomatin-like protein 2 (SLP-2) is a widely expressed mitochondrial inner membrane protein of unknown function. Here we show that human SLP-2 interacts with prohibitin-1 and -2 and binds toExpand

A collagen-binding protein in the endoplasmic reticulum of myoblasts exhibits relationship with serine protease inhibitors.
Several cDNA clones encoding a 46-kDa collagen-binding glycoprotein (gp46) from rat skeletal myoblasts were isolated and sequenced. The cDNA encoded a 17-amino acid signal peptide and a 400-aminoExpand

Regulation of T-Cell Activation by Phosphodiesterase 4B2 Requires Its Dynamic Redistribution during Immunological Synapse Formation
ABSTRACT Stimulation of T cells through their antigen receptors (TCRs) causes a transient increase in the intracellular concentration of cyclic AMP (cAMP). However, sustained high levels of cAMPExpand

Expression and membrane assembly of a transmembrane region from Neu.
Transmembrane domains of receptor tyrosine kinases are increasingly seen as key modulatory elements in signaling pathways. The present work addresses problems surrounding expression, isolation,Expand

Interaction of the N- and C-terminal Domains of Vinculin
The vinculin head to tail intramolecular self-association controls its binding sites for other components of focal adhesions. To study this interaction, the head and tail domains were expressed,Expand

Phosphorylation of the cytoskeletal protein talin by protein kinase C.
Talin, a component of the focal contact of cultured cells, is an in vitro substrate for protein kinase C. Immunoprecipitation confirms that talin is the phosphorylated protein. Phosphorylation isExpand
