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)
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)
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)
Perturbation of DNA replication initiation arrests human cells in G1, pointing towards an origin activation checkpoint. We used RNAi against Cdc7 kinase to inhibit replication initiation and dissect this checkpoint in fibroblasts. We show that the checkpoint response is dependent on three axes coordinated through the transcription factor FoxO3a. In arrested(More)
Cyclin-dependent kinase subunit (CKS) proteins interact with cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) with high affinity. Mammalian CKS1 and CKS2 bind CDK1 and CDK2 and partake in the control of cell cycle progression. We identified CKS-interacting proteins by affinity purification followed by mass spectrometry in the human lymphocytic cell line Ramos. Apart from(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 three-dimensional structure of the Manduca sexta midgut V(1) ATPase has been determined at 3.2 nm resolution from electron micrographs of negatively stained specimens. The V(1) complex has a barrel-like structure 11 nm in height and 13.5 nm in diameter. It is hexagonal in the top view, whereas in the side view, the six large subunits A and B are(More)
We report efficient methods for using functional proteomics to study signal transduction pathways in mouse fibroblasts following stimulation with PDGF. After stimulation, complete cellular proteins were separated using two-dimensional electrophoresis and phosphorylated proteins were detected with anti-phosphotyrosine and anti-phosphoserine antibodies.

In the post-genomics era there has been an acceleration of understanding of cellular and organismal biology and this acceleration has moved the goalposts for proteomics. Higher eukaryotes use alternative promoters, alternative splicing, RNA editing and post-translational modification to produce multiple isoforms of proteins from single genes. Switching(More)
