Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) stimulated the tyrosine phosphorylation of the GTPase activating protein (GAP) in 3T3 cells and in CHO cells expressing wild-type PDGF receptors, but not in several CHO cell lines expressing mutant receptors defective in transmitting mitogenic signals. Following PDGF treatment of cells, GAP physically associated with(More)
p62 is a tyrosine phosphoprotein that associates with p21ras GTPase-activating protein (GAP). Purification and cDNA cloning of p62 reveal extensive sequence similarity to a putative hnRNP protein, GRP33. Recombinant human p62 purified from insect Sf9 cells binds to DNA and to mRNA and, like many proteins involved in mRNA processing, recombinant p62 is(More)
Presenilin proteins play critical roles in the proteolytic processing of both Notch and amyloid precursor protein (APP). Presenilin itself undergoes endoproteolytic processing to generate an N-terminal and C-terminal fragment. As demonstrated previously, overexpression of presenilin 1 (PS1) holoprotein does not change the levels of the N-terminal and(More)
The ras p21 GTPase-activating protein (GAP) was purified from human placental tissue. Internal amino acid sequence was obtained from this 120,000-dalton protein and, by means of this sequence, two types of complementary DNA clones were isolated and characterized. One type encoded GAP with a predicted molecular mass of 116,000 daltons and 96% identity with(More)
The proteins encoded by the ras oncogene are thought to trigger expression of the transformed phenotype in some types of cancer cells. In human cells, the ras protein family consists of several members including normal (proto-oncogene) and mutant (oncogene) forms. In general, the proto-oncogene forms are thought to be involved in the normal growth control(More)
E levated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLC) levels in the plasma is the most important causative factor of atherosclerosis and associated ischemic cardiovascular diseases. The LDL receptor (LDLR) is the preferential pathway through which LDLs are cleared from the circulation. LDLs bound to the LDLR are internalized into clathrin-coated pits and(More)
Antisera raised to a set of chemically synthesized peptides spanning position 12 of ras Mr 21,000 protein (p21) (residues 5 to 17) were able to distinguish between different forms of p21 according to the amino acid at the twelfth codon. The peptide immunogens differed in one amino acid corresponding to position 12 of the protein; the substitutions were(More)
