1. A series of defined peptides which span the complete sequence were produced from troponin I isolated from white skeletal muscle of the rabbit. 2. Two peptides, CF1 (residues 64-133) and CN4 (residues 96-117) inhibited the Mg2+-stimulated adenosine triphosphatase of desensitized actomyosin. This inhibition was potentiated by tropomyosin and the(More)
Troponin C has been isolated from rabbit slow skeletal and cardiac muscle and the complete amino acid sequence of the slow muscle protein determined. Amino acid analysis and peptide mapping of the cardiac protein showed it to be very similar to, if not identical with, the slow muscle protein. This identity has been proved by the isolation and(More)
The inhibitory properties of a panel of snake-venom-derived RGD (Arg-Gly-Asp) proteins, including the disintegrins kistrin, elegantin and albolabrin, and the neurotoxin homologue dendroaspin, were investigated in a platelet-adhesion assay using three immobilized ligands of the glycoprotein IIb-IIIa complex (alpha IIb beta 3), namely fibrinogen, fibronectin(More)
We have characterized a panel of 6 monoclonal antibodies raised against human platelet talin by Western blotting, immune precipitation, and immunofluorescence, and shown that antibodies TA205 and TD77 disrupt actin stress fibers and focal adhesions, and inhibit cell motility when microinjected into human fibroblasts. Using a series of chick talin fusion(More)
Dysregulation of Na⁺/H⁺ exchanger isoform one (NHE1) activity is a hallmark of cells undergoing tumorigenesis and metastasis, the leading cause of patient mortality. The acidic tumor microenvironment is thought to facilitate the development of resistance to chemotherapy drugs and to promote extracellular matrix remodeling leading to metastasis. Here, we(More)
1. Inhibitory-factor preparations isolated from myofibrils were shown to consist principally of proteins with molecular weights of 37000 and 23000. Under certain preparative procedures an additional component of molecular weight 14000 was present. 2. The 23000-dalton protein, the inhibitory factor, was the major active component. Its activity was enhanced(More)
A panel of six monoclonal antibodies produced against cell surface glycoproteins of a rabbit T lymphocyte line was used with flow cytometry to define rabbit lymphocyte subpopulations. Four thymocyte populations were characterized by size and expression of cell surface antigens and appear to represent stages in thymocyte differentiation. Rabbit spleen(More)
The complete amino acid sequence of troponin I from rabbit cardiac muscle was determined by the isolation of four unique CNBr fragments, together with overlapping tryptic peptides containing radioactive methionine residues. Overlap data for residues 35-36, 93-94 and 140-145 are incomplete, the sequence at these positions being based on homology with the(More)
Two monoclonal antibodies, L12/36 and L13/112, prepared from spleens of BALB/c mice immunized with extracts of the rabbit lymphoid cell line RL-5, precipitate a 42,000 mol. wt molecule from detergent lysates of this cell line. This molecule is not associated with beta-2-microglobulin (beta 2m) and has been shown by sequential precipitation experiments to be(More)
