HIV-1 Nef Downregulates MHC-I by a PACS-1- and PI3K-Regulated ARF6 Endocytic Pathway
The HIV-1 Nef-mediated downregulation of cell surface MHC-I molecules to the trans-Golgi network (TGN) enables HIV-1 to escape immune surveillance. However, the cellular pathway used by Nef toExpand

PACS-1 Defines a Novel Gene Family of Cytosolic Sorting Proteins Required for trans-Golgi Network Localization
We report the role of one member of a novel gene family, PACS-1, in the localization of trans-Golgi network (TGN) membrane proteins. PACS-1 directs the TGN localization of furin by binding to theExpand

HIV-1 Nef protein binds to the cellular protein PACS-1 to downregulate class I major histocompatibility complexes
Major-histocompatibility-complex (MHC) proteins are used to display, on the surface of a cell, peptides derived from foreign material — such as a virus — that is infecting that cell. Cytotoxic TExpand

Rapamycin suppresses 5′TOP mRNA translation through inhibition of p70s6k
Treatment of mammalian cells with the immunosuppressant rapamycin, a bacterial macrolide, selectively suppresses mitogen‐induced translation of an essential class of mRNAs which contain anExpand

Human furin is a calcium-dependent serine endoprotease that recognizes the sequence Arg-X-X-Arg and efficiently cleaves anthrax toxin protective antigen.
Previous work demonstrated that human furin is a predominantly Golgi membrane-localized endoprotease that can efficiently process precursor proteins at paired basic residues (-Lys-Arg- or -Arg-Arg-)Expand

Intracellular trafficking and activation of the furin proprotein convertase: localization to the TGN and recycling from the cell surface.
Furin is a membrane‐associated endoprotease that efficiently cleaves precursor proteins on the C‐terminal side of the consensus sequence, Arg‐X‐Lys/Arg‐Arg1, and has been proposed to catalyze theseExpand

Ewing sarcoma 11;22 translocation produces a chimeric transcription factor that requires the DNA-binding domain encoded by FLI1 for transformation.
The 11;22 chromosomal translocation specifically linked to Ewing sarcoma and primitive neuroectodermal tumor results in a chimeric molecule fusing the amino-terminal-encoding portion of the EWS geneExpand

Influenza virus hemagglutinin with multibasic cleavage site is activated by furin, a subtilisin‐like endoprotease.
Many viruses have membrane glycoproteins that are activated at cleavage sites containing multiple arginine and lysine residues by cellular proteases so far not identified. The proteases responsibleExpand

PACS‐1 binding to adaptors is required for acidic cluster motif‐mediated protein traffic
PACS‐1 is a cytosolic protein involved in controlling the correct subcellular localization of integral membrane proteins that contain acidic cluster sorting motifs, such as furin and humanExpand

The principal target of rapamycin‐induced p70s6k inactivation is a novel phosphorylation site within a conserved hydrophobic domain.
The immunosuppressive agent rapamycin induces inactivation of p70s6k with no effect on other mitogen‐activated kinases. Here we have employed a combination of techniques, including mass spectrometry,Expand
