Interactions of drebrin and gephyrin with profilin.
Profilin is an actin monomer-binding protein which stimulates actin polymerization. Recent studies have revealed that profilin interacts with VASP, Mena, Bnilp, Bnrlp, and mDia, all of which have theExpand

Isolation and characterization of a 34,000-dalton calmodulin- and F-actin-binding protein from chicken gizzard smooth muscle.
We isolated a 34,000-dalton protein from the heat-soluble fraction of avian smooth muscle using the procedures of ammonium sulfate fractionation, cation exchange chromatography and gel filtration.Expand

Crystal structures of recombinant and native soybean beta-conglycinin beta homotrimers.
The crystal structures of recombinant and native beta homotrimers of soybean beta-conglycinin were determined by X-ray crystallography at 2.7 and 2.8 A resolutions, respectively. The crystals of theExpand

Identification of calponin as a novel substrate of Rho-kinase.
Calponin, an F-actin-associated protein implicated in the regulation of smooth muscle contraction, is known to be phosphorylated in vitro by protein kinase C (PKC) and Ca(2+)/calmodulin dependentExpand

Glucose uptake in vivo in skeletal muscles of insulin-injected chicks.
Glucose uptake across the plasma membrane in animal cells plays a crucial role in whole-body glucose homeostasis. Insulin-stimulated glucose transport activity in vivo in several tissues wasExpand

Production performance of laying hens fed L-tryptophan.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether supplementing L-tryptophan to a nutritionally complete diet would influence egg production rate and egg shell quality in laying hens. One hundredExpand

Effects of changing glutamate 487 to lysine in rat and human liver mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase. A model to study human (Oriental type) class 2 aldehyde dehydrogenase.
Many Oriental people possess a liver mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase where glutamate at position 487 has been replaced by a lysine, and they have very low levels of mitochondrial aldehydeExpand

A novel ligand for an SH3 domain of the adaptor protein Nck bears an SH2 domain and nuclear signaling motifs.
Nck is a small protein composed of Src homology regions (SH) 2 and 3, paralleling the adaptors c-Crk and Grb2/Ash, but its function remains enigmatic. To clarify Nck signaling, a human brain cDNAExpand

Induction of the human gene for p44, a hepatitis-C-associated microtubular aggregate protein, by interferon-alpha/beta.
A hepatitis-C-associated microtubular aggregate protein, referred to as p44, has been identified as a cytoplasmic antigen in the hepatocytes of chimpanzees infected with hepatitis C virus. TheExpand
