Integrin-mediated cell adhesion cooperates with growth factor receptors in the control of cell proliferation, cell survival, and cell migration. One mechanism to explain these synergistic effects is the ability of integrins to induce phosphorylation of growth factor receptors, for instance the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor. Here we define some(More)
Crystals were discovered within the aged lung and at sites of chronic inflammation in a mouse model of chronic granulomatous disease. Following re-crystallization at neutral pH, the crystals were identified as the chitinase-like protein Ym1, expressed in organs of the lymphoreticular system, the lung, and distal stomach. Ym1 was shown to be a neutrophil(More)
The protein-tyrosine phosphatase SHP-1 binds to and dephosphorylates the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), and both SH2 domains of SHP-1 are important for this interaction (Tenev, T., Keilhack, H., Tomic, S., Stoyanov, B., Stein-Gerlach, M., Lammers, R., Krivtsov, A. V., Ullrich, A., and Böhmer, F. D. (1997) J. Biol. Chem. 272, 5966-5973). We mapped(More)
Fear memories elicit multiple behavioral responses, encompassing avoidance, or behavioral inhibition in response to threatening contexts. Context-specific freezing, reflecting fear-induced behavioral inhibition, has been proposed as one of the main risks factors for the development of anxiety disorders. We attempted to define the key hippocampal mediators(More)
Rat bradykinin B2 receptor from unstimulated Chinese hamster ovary cells transfected with the corresponding cDNA has been isolated, and subsequent mass spectrometric analysis of multiple phosphorylated species and of the palmitoylation attachment site is described. Bradykinin B2 receptor was isolated on oligo(dT)-cellulose using(More)
We investigated the coupling of the fMLP (N -formyl-L-methionyl-L-leucyl-L-phenylalanine; 'chemotactic peptide') receptor with phosphorylation of the actin-binding protein L-plastin in neutrophils. Using two-dimensional IEF (isoelectric focusing)/PAGE and MALDI-TOF (matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time-of-flight)-MS, L-plastin was identified as(More)
A prominent tyrosine-phosphorylated protein of approximately 100 kDa (designated pp100) in epidermal growth factor (EGF)-stimulated A431 cells was found to be a main interaction partner of the protein-tyrosine phosphatase SHP-1 in pull-down experiments with a glutathione S-transferase-SHP-1 fusion protein. Binding was largely mediated by the N-terminal SH2(More)
High and low molecular mass kininogen, two multidomain plasma proteins, bind to endothelial cells, platelets, and neutrophils in the intravascular compartment. The specific cell attachment site on their common heavy chain is mediated by domain-3, a cystatin-like structure with inhibitory capacity for papain-like proteinases (Jiang, Y., Müller-Esterl, W.,(More)
Posttranslational modifications of the endothelin receptors A and B from human lung fibroblasts were investigated before and after stimulation of the cells with (dA)(30)-5'-S-EMC-endothelin-1. The patterns of phosphorylation and palmitoylation of both receptors were much more complicated than expected. In both the stimulated and the unstimulated states,(More)
