The human 57 kDa Ki-1 antigen (Ki-1/57) is a cytoplasmic and nuclear protein, associated with Ser/Thr protein kinase activity, and phosphorylated at the serine and threonine residues upon cellular activation. We have shown that Ki-1/57 interacts with chromo-helicase DNA-binding domain protein 3 and with the adaptor/signaling protein receptor of activated(More)
Dysregulation of pre-mRNA splicing machinery activity has been related to the biogenesis of several diseases. The serine/arginine-rich protein kinase family (SRPKs) plays a critical role in regulating pre-mRNA splicing events through the extensive phosphorylation of splicing factors from the family of serine/arginine-rich proteins (SR proteins).

The human SFRS9/SRp30c belongs to the SR family of splicing regulators. Despite evidence that members of this protein family may be targeted by arginine methylation, this has yet to be experimentally addressed. In this study, we found that SFRS9 is a target for PRMT1-mediated arginine methylation in vitro, and that it is immunoprecipitated from HEK-293(More)
The fasciculation and elongation protein Zeta 1 (FEZ1) is the mammalian orthologue of the Caenorhabditis elegans protein UNC-76, which is necessary for axon growth. Human FEZ1 interacts with Protein Kinase C (PKC) and several regulatory proteins involved in functions ranging from microtubule associated transport to transcriptional regulation. Theoretical(More)
The human protein Ki-1/57 was first identified through the cross reactivity of the anti-CD30 monoclonal antibody Ki-1, in Hodgkin lymphoma cells. The expression of Ki-1/57 in diverse cancer cells and its phosphorylation in peripheral blood leukocytes after mitogenic activation suggested its possible role in cell signaling. Ki-1/57 interacts with several(More)
BACKGROUND Visceral leishmaniasis is an important tropical disease, and Leishmania infantum chagasi (synonym of Leishmania infantum) is the main pathogenic agent of visceral leishmaniasis in the New World. Recently, ecto-nucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolases (E-NTPDases) were identified as enablers of infection and virulence factors in many pathogens.(More)
The cytoplasmic and nuclear protein Ki-1/57 was first identified in malignant cells from Hodgkin's lymphoma. Despite studies showing its phosphorylation, arginine methylation, and interaction with several regulatory proteins, the functional role of Ki-1/57 in human cells remains to be determined. Here, we investigated the relationship of Ki-1/57 with RNA(More)
Ki-1/57 is a cytoplasmic and nuclear protein of 57 kDa first identified in malignant cells from Hodgkin's lymphoma. Based on yeast-two hybrid protein interaction we found out that Ki-1/57 interacts with adaptor protein RACK1 (receptor of activated kinase 1), CIRP (cold-inducible RNA-binding protein), RPL38 (ribosomal protein L38) and FXR1 (fragile X mental(More)
The mapping of protein-protein interactions of a determined organism is considered fundamental to assign protein function in the post-genomic era. As part of this effort, screenings for pairwise interactions by yeast two-hybrid system have been used popularly to reveal protein interaction networks in different biological systems. Through the identification(More)
