The hormonal stimulation of mammary gland morphogenesis is believed to occur through growth factor receptor signaling pathways. To determine the importance of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) pathway, we examined extracts of inguinal mammary glands from prepubertal and pubertal mice for tyrosine-phosphorylated EGFR and other erbB receptors.(More)
Rabbit antibodies against Artemia RNA polymerase II have been raised and utilized to study the immunological relationships between the subunits from RNA polymerases I, II and III from this organism and RNA polymerase II from other eukaryotes. We describe here for the first time the subunit structure of Artemia RNA polymerases I and III. These enzymes have 9(More)
The signaling pathways associated with estrogen-induced proliferation of epithelial cells in the reproductive tract have not been defined. To identify receptor tyrosine kinases that are activated in vivo by 17 beta-estradiol (E2), uteri from ovariectomized mice were examined for enhanced tyrosine phosphorylation of various receptors and a receptor substrate(More)
A cyclic-AMP-independent nuclear protein kinase has been purified from Dictyostelium discoideum amoebae. The purification procedure involves chromatography of DEAE-Sephadex, phosphocellulose and heparin-Sepharose. The purified enzyme phosphorylates threonine and serine of acidic proteins as casein and phosvitin. Phosphorylation of casein is stimulated by(More)
1. The subcellular distribution of the enzymes involved in oxaloacetate metabolism and certain related enzymes in the liver of normal fed and starved rats has been studied. A simplified fractionation procedure was developed in the course of this work. Pyruvate carboxylase and citrate synthase were found to precipitate exclusively associated to mitochondria.(More)
Some of the actions of estradiol occur through stimulation of growth factor pathways in target organs. Tyrosine-phosphorylated (Tyr(P)) insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) and the insulin receptor substrate (IRS)-1 are found in the uterus of mice treated with estradiol. Immunoprecipitates of uterine Tyr(P) IRS-1 contained both p85, the regulatory(More)
