UV irradiation of normal or immortalized cells induces a rapid increase in the expression of several transcription factors and is thought to serve a protective function. The human fibrosarcoma cell line, HT1080 clone H4, expresses almost undetectable levels of Egr-1 and does not respond to UV-C irradiation by the induction of Egr-1. The H4 cells are(More)
The PTEN tumor suppressor phosphatase directly counteracts the multiple functions of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase by removing phosphate from the D3 position of inositol phospholipids. Like many lymphomas and leukemias, the Jurkat T cell line lacks PTEN protein due to frame-shift mutations in both PTEN alleles and therefore survives in long-term cell(More)
Tropomyosin kinase is partially purified from 14-day-old chicken embryos using DEAE-cellulose, cellulose phosphate and gel filtration chromatography. The purest enzyme preparation consists of two major bands of Mr = 76,000 and 43,000 on SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The molecular weight of the enzyme is 250,000 determined by gel filtration(More)
