Forty original sequences of peptide substrates and inhibitors of protein kinases and phosphatases were aligned in a chain matrix without artificial gaps. Fifteen protein kinase peptide substrates and inhibitors (PKSI peptides) contained a common dipeptide ArgArg and also additional important tetra-, tri- and dipeptide homologies. Three further peptide(More)
Sequences of immunoglobulin (Ig) domains of adhesive molecule GSAMS from the living fossil spongeGeodia cydonium were compared with the important motif of peptide protein kinase substrates and inhibitors (PKSI), detail PKSI sequences, and a common template sequence, derived from structures determined previously. We found the site-restricted sequence(More)
The motif DGYW/WRCH (Mh) and its frequently discussed simplified derivative GYW/WRC (Mhs) are involved in immunoglobulin (Ig) hypermutation. Both these motifs appear to be markedly shorter than the corresponding conventionally predicted minima of valid sequence lengths (MVSL). The same conclusion concerning both Mh and Mhs can also be obtained in the(More)
Some leukocyte effector cell-surface molecules movement toward the adjoining target cells takes place during the reaction of NK cytotoxicity (NK R). The majority of the moving molecules are usually anchoredvia a divalent-ion-dependent interaction (PMM-M2+). The released PMM-M2+ can interact also with the secreted tumor necrosis factor alfa (TNF-α). In(More)
Oligosaccharides with four different types of branching were prepared from purified human transferrin, alpha 2-macroglobulin, caeruloplasmin and alpha 1-acid glycoprotein and labelled with NaBH3 3H. Binding of these oligosaccharides to rat liver plasma membrane, rat leucocytes, pig liver plasma membranes and pig leucocyte plasma membranes was investigated.(More)
Inhibition of pig NK cell activity by asialooligosaccharides (aOS) isolated from human serum glycoproteins was investigated. Train-tennary aOS (aOSIII) of ceruloplasmin was found to be the most potent inhibitor up to the concentration 0.1 micrograms/ml, which is in agreement with its highly specific binding to NK-activity-enriched pig lymphocytes (with a(More)
This review summarizes some important data, principles, opinions, commentaries, and modern methodology concerning the receptor structure, interactions, signaling and receptor-mediated cell functions. Three sections give a brief overview of the signaling synergy, multivariant signaling, and some reactions in phosphorylation networks. A concise report about(More)
Many structures and molecules closely related to those involved in the specific process of immunoglobulin (Ig) hypermutation existed before the appearance of primordial Ig genes. Consequently, these structures can be found even in animals and organisms distinct from vertebrates; likewise, homologues of hypermutation enzymes are present in a broad range of(More)
Prolonged cultivation of separated rat lung mast cells (LMC) in vitro is necessary to better investigate a possible role of LMC in different stages of tissue remodeling induced by hypoxia. Rat lung mast cells (LMC) were separated using a protocol including an improved proteolytic extraction and two subsequent density gradient separations on Ficoll-Paque(More)
Virtual interactomics represents a rapidly developing scientific area on the boundary line of bioinformatics and interactomics. Protein-related virtual interactomics then comprises instrumental tools for prediction, simulation, and networking of the majority of interactions important for structural and individual reproduction, differentiation, recognition,(More)
