Activation of T and natural killer (NK) cells leads to the tyrosine phosphorylation of pp36 and to its association with several signaling molecules, including phospholipase Cgamma-1 and Grb2. Microsequencing of peptides derived from purified rat pp36 protein led to the cloning, in rat and man, of cDNA encoding a T- and NK cell-specific protein with several(More)
Multiple signaling pathways are thought to control the selective expression of genes over the course of neuronal differentiation. One approach to elucidating these pathways is to identify specific cis-acting elements that serve as the final targets for these signaling pathways in neural-specific genes. We now identify a novel repressive element from the(More)
Tissue-specific gene transcription can be determined by the use of either positive-acting or negative-acting DNA regulatory elements. We have analyzed a promoter from the growth-associated protein 43 (GAP-43) gene and found that it uses both of these mechanisms to achieve its high degree of neuron-specific activity. Two novel transcription factor binding(More)
The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) is the principal means by which the Executive Branch coordinates science and technology policy across the diverse entities that make up the Federal research and development (R&D) enterprise. A primary objective of the NSTC is to establish clear national goals for Federal science and technology investments.(More)
Stimulation of the T cell antigen receptor (TCR) activates a protein tyrosine kinase and leads to the tyrosine phosphorylation of phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C-gamma 1 (PLC gamma 1). The molecular interactions involved in this phosphorylation are not known. After stimulation of the TCR on Jurkat T cells, tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins of 36,(More)
