OBJECTIVE To obtain international consensus around processes that support the delivery of high-quality care to patients with childhood-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) based on current recommendations and scientific evidence. METHODS To identify process quality indicators (QIs) for the medical care of children and adolescents with childhood-onset(More)
Chemical cross-linking and high resolution MS have been integrated successfully to capture protein interactions and provide low resolution structural data for proteins that are refractive to analyses by NMR or crystallography. Despite the versatility of these combined techniques, the array of products that is generated from the cross-linking and proteolytic(More)
Phosphorylase kinase (PhK) is a hexadecameric (αβγδ)(4) complex that regulates glycogenolysis in skeletal muscle. Activity of the catalytic γ subunit is regulated by allosteric activators targeting the regulatory α, β, and δ subunits. Three-dimensional EM reconstructions of PhK show it to be two large (αβγδ)(2) lobes joined with D(2) symmetry through(More)
Understanding the regulatory interactions among the 16 subunits of the (alphabetagammadelta)(4) phosphorylase b kinase (PhK) complex can only be achieved through reconstructing the holoenzyme or its subcomplexes from the individual subunits. In this study, recombinant baculovirus carrying a vector containing a multigene cassette was created to coexpress in(More)
Phosphorylase kinase (PhK), an (alphabetagammadelta)(4) complex, stimulates energy production from glycogen in the cascade activation of glycogenolysis. Its large homologous alpha and beta subunits regulate the activity of the catalytic gamma subunit and account for 81% of PhK's mass. Both subunits are thought to be multidomain structures, and recent(More)
BACKGROUND The increase in therapeutic options for juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) has added complexity to treatment decisions. Shared decision making has the potential to help providers and families work together to choose the best possible option for each patient from the array of choices. As part of a needs assessment, prior to design and(More)
Skeletal muscle phosphorylase kinase (PhK) is an (alphabetagammadelta) 4 hetero-oligomeric enzyme complex that phosphorylates and activates glycogen phosphorylase b (GP b) in a Ca (2+)-dependent reaction that couples muscle contraction with glycogen breakdown. GP b is PhK's only known in vivo substrate; however, given the great size and multiple subunits of(More)

For over four decades free Mg(2+) ions, that is, those in excess of MgATP, have been reported to affect a wide variety of properties of phosphorylase kinase (PhK), including its affinity for other molecules, proteolysis, chemical crosslinking, phosphorylation, binding to certain monoclonal antibodies, and activity, which is stimulated. Additionally, for(More)
