In this study we examined the distribution of U-snRNPs during mitosis using a monoclonal antibody which recognizes the 28 kD protein associated with U-snRNP particles. During interphase U-snRNPs are concentrated within discrete intranuclear protein clusters. The onset of mitosis is accompanied by a breakdown of these nuclear protein clusters and U-snRNPs(More)
Polyclonal antibodies have been produced which react with a nuclear protein having a molecular weight of 107kD and a pI of 8.7-8.8 (designated p107). This protein is shown to be a component of the residual ribonucleoprotein (RNP) network of the nuclear matrix. P107 localized exclusively to the nuclear interior but not within nucleolar or chromatin domains.(More)
Inorganic-organic hybrid materials designed to facilitate bone tissue regeneration use a calcium phosphate mineral layer to encourage cell adhesion, proliferation, and osteogenic differentiation. Mineral formed on porous materials is often discontinuous through the thickness of the scaffold. This study aimed to uniformly coat the pores of three-dimensional(More)
The intranuclear distribution of nuclear matrix-associated protein p107 and the 28-kD Sm antigen of U-snRNPs have been studied using double-label immunofluorescence and immunoperoxidase electron microscopy. In interphase nuclei of HeLa cells, Novikoff hepatoma cells, and rat kangaroo kidney cells, p107 was confined to discrete interchromatin domains. The(More)
The objective of this work was to identify peptide sequences with high affinity to bone-like mineral (BLM) to provide alternative design methods for functional bone regeneration peptides. Adsorption of preferential binding peptide sequences on four apatite-based substrates [BLM and three sintered apatite disks pressed from powders containing 0% CO(3)(2-)(More)
Ischemic stress of cells within solid tumors arises from inadequate perfusion of regions of the tumor and results in microenvironments which are hypoxic and deficient in nutrient delivery and waste product removal. Stressed cells within these microenvironments show growth inhibition and synthesize unique sets of proteins referred to as glucose and oxygen(More)
We have directly compared two independently published methods for isolating operationally defined nuclear matrices by studying EM ultrastructure, protein composition and distribution of replicating DNA. Nuclear matrices prepared by extraction with 2 M NaCl consisted of fibrous pore complex lamina, residual fibrillar and granular components of nucleoli and(More)
The phosphosulfonates are a new class of soil-active herbicides which control a variety of annual grass and broadleaf weeds. Chirality at the phosphorus atom afforded the opportunity to explore stereospecific requirements for herbicidal activity. Chiral (hydroxymethyl)phosphinate intermediates were enzymatically resolved (Pseudomonas fluorescens lipase)(More)
