We report here that the negative cell cycle regulator protein p53 is an in vivo and in vitro substrate for protein kinase C, a cellular receptor for the tumor-promoter phorbol esters. We also demonstrate that p53 interacts in a calcium-dependent manner with S100b, a member of the S100 protein family involved in cell cycle progression and cell(More)
On the basis of the physico-chemical principles underlying silver-staining of proteins, which are recalled in this paper, several methods of silver-staining of proteins after SDS electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gels or isoelectric focusing were tested. The most valuable protocols are presented in this report, including standard methods for unsupported(More)
We describe a modification in the sample application mode for isoelectric focusing with immobilized pH gradients. Instead of being applied at the surface of the gel in a sample cup, the sample is introduced into the gel during the immobilized pH gradient strip rehydration step. This modification implies the use of low percentage gels (below 3.5% T) and(More)
In this study we show a striking correlation between histone H1(0) gene expression and histone acetylation. Trichostatin A, a highly specific inhibitor of histone deacetylase, efficiently induces H1(0) gene expression. Moreover, using a cell line sensitive to trichostatin A (FM3A) and a derived cell line selected for its resistance to this inhibitor(More)
Histone H1(0) is a differentiation-specific member of the histone H1 family. The accumulation of the protein is associated with the terminal stage of cell differentiation and is regulated at various levels. In mouse, the analysis of the expression of the single copy gene encoding H1(0) has shown that another H1(0)-related mRNA species (0.9 kb) is present in(More)
Pharmacological and molecular biological evidence indicates the existence of multiple types of NMDA receptors within the CNS. We have characterized pharmacological properties of receptors assembled from the combination of NR 1a and NR 2B subunits (NR 1a/2B) expressed in transfected cells using both 125I-MK-801 binding assays and electrophysiological(More)
In this paper we look at the manual analysis of arguments and how this compares to the current state of automatic argument analysis. These considerations are used to develop a new approach combining a machine learning algorithm to extract propositions from text, with a topic model to determine argument structure. The results of this method are compared to a(More)
