In the amphibian oocyte, most of the non-chromatin-bound histones are not free but form complexes with specific karyophilic proteins, the most prominent being nucleoplasmin and 'protein N1/N2'. Using antibodies against polypeptide N1 and N2 (Mr approximately 105,000 and approximately 110,000) we have isolated, from a Xenopus laevis ovary lambda gt11(More)
Neutrophils contain a soluble guanine-nucleotidebinding protein, made up of two components with molecular masses of 23 and 26 kDa, that mediates stimulation of phospholipase C-beta2 (PLCbeta2). We have identified the two components of the stimulatory heterodimer by amino acid sequencing as a Rho GTPase and the Rho guanine nucleotide dissociation inhibitor(More)
The APO-1 antigen as defined by the mouse monoclonal antibody anti-APO-1 was previously found to be expressed on the cell surface of activated human T and B lymphocytes and a variety of malignant human lymphoid cell lines. Cross-linking of the APO-1 antigen by anti-APO-1 induced programmed cell death, apoptosis, of APO-1 positive cells. To characterize the(More)
Cytokeratins are constituent proteins of intermediate filaments (IFs) that form heterotypic tetrameric IF subunits containing two polypeptide chains of each of the two cytokeratin subfamilies, i.e. the acidic (type I) and the basic (type II). To locate the molecular domains involved in the formation of these heterotypic complexes, we have developed a(More)
Chicken erythrocyte nuclei were incubated with DNA intercalating agents in order to isolate from chromatin specific DNA-binding proteins whose binding specificity may be determined by DNA secondary and/or tertiary structure. The intercalating agents ethidium bromide (EtBr) and propidium iodide induce the specific release of high mobility group proteins HMG(More)
Navigation procedures in orthopedic surgery require fixation of reference markers to the anatomic region of interest. Inadequate fixation might lead to micromotion or loosening of the reference marker, consequently causing registration failures or errors in navigation. Osseous rigid fixation is usually achieved by minimally invasive Schanz screws or pins.(More)
Proteoglycans of the human B lymphoblastoid cell line LICR-LON-HMy2 were metabolically labeled with [35S]sulfate. High-density fractions of 35S-labeled material separated by CsCl gradient ultracentrifugation were further purified by anion exchange chromatography and gel filtration. Two proteoglycans, isolated from cell lysates and culture supernatants, were(More)
Several autoimmune sera from patients with Raynaud phenomenon decorated mammalian kinetochores and bound to a 47-kDa protein on immunoblots of nuclear lysates. Antibody affinity-purified from immunoblots of the 47-kDa band recognized kinetochores, but due to crossreaction with an 18-kDa protein, localization remains elusive. We used one of these sera to(More)
The stimulation of cell proliferation by insulin like growth factor IGF-1 has previously been shown to depend on activation of voltage gated K(+) channels. The signaling involved in activation of voltage gated K(+) channel Kv1.3 includes the phosphatidylinositol-3 (PI3) protein kinase, 3-phosphoinositide dependent protein kinase PDK1 and the serum and(More)
