NADPH oxidases produce reactive oxygen species (ROS) that serve as co-stimulatory signals for cell proliferation. In mouse lung epithelial cells that express Nox1, Nox2, Nox4, p22(phox), p47(phox), p67(phox), and Noxo1, overexpression of Nox1 delayed cell cycle withdrawal by maintaining AP-1-dependent expression of cyclin D1 in low serum conditions.

Calcium has been implicated in regulating vesicle fusion reactions, but its potential role in regulating other aspects of protein transport, such as vesicle assembly, is largely unexplored. We find that treating cells with the membrane-permeable calcium chelator, 1,2-bis(2-aminophenoxy)ethane-N,N,N',N'-tetraacetic acid tetrakis(acetoxymethyl ester)(More)
Inactivation of eukaryotic 2-Cys peroxiredoxins (Prxs) by hyperoxidation has been proposed to promote accumulation of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) for redox-dependent signaling events. We examined the oxidation and oligomeric states of PrxI and -II in epithelial cells during mitogenic signaling and in response to fluxes of H2O2. During normal mitogenic(More)
