TGN38/41, an integral membrane protein predominantly localized to the trans-Golgi network, has been shown to cycle to the plasma membrane and return to the TGN within 30 min. (Ladinsky, M. S., and K. E. Howell. 1992. Eur. J. Cell Biol. 59:92-105). In characterizing the proteins which associate with TGN38/41, a peripheral 62-kD protein, two forms of rab6 and(More)
Adenosine deaminase (ADA) is a purine catabolic enzyme that manages levels of the biologically active purines adenosine and 2'-deoxyadenosine in tissues and cells. ADA-deficient mice die at 3 wk of age from severe respiratory distress. This phenotype is progressive and is linked to perturbations in pulmonary purine metabolism. The inflammatory changes found(More)
Blood vessels originate as simple endothelial cell tubes. It has been proposed that platelet-derived growth factor B polypeptide (Pdgfb) secreted by these endothelial cells drives the formation of the surrounding muscular wall by recruiting nearby mesenchymal cells1,2. However, targetted inactivation of the Pdgfb gene3 or the Pdgf receptor β(Pdgfrb) gene4,(More)
