Biochemical experiments over the past 40 years have shown that nucleoside diphosphate (NDP) kinase activity, which catalyzes phosphoryl transfer from a nucleoside triphosphate to a nucleoside diphosphate, is ubiquitously found in organisms from bacteria to human. Over the past 10 years, eight human genes of the nm23/NDP kinase family have been discovered(More)
Highly ATP- and GTP-specific isoforms of succinyl-CoA synthetase in pigeon incorporate the same alpha-subunit, but different beta-subunits (Johnson, J. D., Muhonen, W. W., and Lambeth, D. O. (1998) J. Biol. Chem. 273, 27573-27579). The sequences of the mature subunits were determined by methods based on reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. The(More)
The NME (nm23/nucleoside diphosphate kinase) gene family in human is involved in the phosphorylation of nucleoside diphosphates and a variety of regulatory phenomena associated with development, oncogenic transformation, and metastasis. Here we report the cDNA sequence for a sixth member of this family, NME6. The cDNA sequence predicts a 186-residue protein(More)
Nucleoside-diphosphate kinase (NDP kinase) from the matrix space of mitochondria in pigeon liver was purified to homogeneity. Degenerate oligonucleotide primers to the N-terminal sequence of the purified protein and the region containing the active site histidine were used in reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction to obtain a major portion of the(More)
