Most cellular processes are carried out by multiprotein complexes. The identification and analysis of their components provides insight into how the ensemble of expressed proteins (proteome) is organized into functional units. We used tandem-affinity purification (TAP) and mass spectrometry in a large-scale approach to characterize multiprotein complexes in(More)
The GATA-1 transcription factor is capable of suppressing the myeloid gene expression program when ectopically expressed in myeloid cells. We examined the ability of GATA-1 to repress the expression and function of the PU.1 transcription factor, a central regulator of myeloid differentiation. We found that GATA-1 is capable of suppressing the myeloid(More)
Pleckstrin homology (PH) domains may act as membrane localization modules through specific interactions with phosphoinositide phospholipids. These interactions could represent responses to second messengers, with scope for regulation by soluble inositol polyphosphates. A biosensor-based assay was used here to probe interactions between PH domains and(More)
In the present study, the glucose transport into the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been investigated. The approach suggested is based on a rapid sampling technique for studying the dynamic response of the yeast to rapid changes in extracellular glucose concentrations. For this purpose a concentrated glucose solution has been injected into a continuous(More)
The commitment of multipotent cells to particular developmental pathways requires specific changes in their transcription factor complement to generate the patterns of gene expression characteristic of specialized cell types. We have studied the role of the GATA cofactor Friend of GATA (FOG) in the differentiation of avian multipotent hematopoietic(More)
