In a genetic screen for nucleoporin-interacting components, a novel nuclear pore protein Nup84p, which exhibits homology to mammalian Nup107p, was isolated. Nup84p forms a complex with five proteins, of which Nup120p, Nup85p, Sec13p, and a Sec13p homolog were identified. Upon isolation of Sec13p-ProtA, nucleoporins were still associated, but the major(More)
The amino-terminal domain of Nic96p physically interacts with the Nsp1p complex which is involved in nucleocytoplasmic transport. Here we show that thermosensitive mutations mapping in the central domain of Nic96p inhibit nuclear pore formation at the nonpermissive temperature. Furthermore, the carboxyterminal domain of Nic96p functionally interacts with a(More)
Using a yeast one-hybrid screen with a DNA-bound Ets-1 protein, we have identified MafB, an AP-1 like protein, as a direct interaction partner. MafB is specifically expressed in myelomonocytic cells and binds to the DNA-binding domain of Ets-1 via its basic region or leucine-zipper domain. Furthermore, it represses Ets-1 transactivation of synthetic(More)
Intracellular mRNA localization is a common mechanism of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. In a wide range of organisms, mRNA localization coupled with translational regulation target the proteins to their site of function. Here, we describe recent exciting evidence that some mRNAs are transported as particles along the cytoskeleton by the(More)
Monoclonal antibodies specific for unsulfated, 4-sulfated, and 6-sulfated disaccharide "stubs" that remain attached to the core protein after chondroitinase ABC digestion of chondroitin/dermatan sulfate proteoglycans have been used to study the localization of chondroitin and the two isomeric chondroitin sulfates in developing rat cerebellum. At 1-2 weeks(More)
We have characterized the structural properties of heparan sulfates from brain and other tissues after depolymerization with a mixture of three heparin and heparan sulfate lyases from Flavobacterium heparinum. The resulting disaccharides were separated by HPLC and identified by comparison with authentic standards. In rat, rabbit, and bovine brain, 46-69% of(More)
To study nucleocytoplasmic transport during multicellular development, we developed a sensitive nuclear protein import assay in living blastoderm embryos. We show that dominant negative truncations of the human nuclear transport receptor karyopherinbeta/Importinbeta (DNImpbeta) disrupt mRNA export and protein import in Drosophila. To test the sensitivity of(More)
