A working model for haematopoietic cytokine signal transduction has been hypothesised as follows. Binding of cytokines to specific receptor molecules leads to phosphorylation and activation of receptor associated members of the Janus kinase family. This is followed by tyrosine phosphorylation of the associated receptor and members of the STAT (signal(More)
We have investigated the possible involvement of the MAPK pathway in the growth hormone(GH)-induced activation of one of the members of signal transducers and activators of transcription, STAT5, by using the MAPK kinase (MEK) inhibitor PD98059. PD98059 treatment of Chinese hamster ovarian cells, stably transfected with the GH receptor (CHOA cells),(More)
Steroid hormone receptors and signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT) factors constitute two distinct families of transcription factors activated by different signaling pathways. In previous reports, cross-talk between STAT5 and several steroid receptors has been demonstrated. We investigated putative cross-talk between ERalpha and ERbeta(More)
The growth hormone regulated serine protease inhibitor (SPI) 2.1 and 2.2 gene promoters have been shown to contain a response element similar to the gamma-interferon activated sequence (GAS) family of signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) response elements. We have investigated the STAT and cytokine specificity of the SPI 2.1 STAT(More)
Basal parameters for binding and cross-linking of 125I-rat prolactin (rPRL) to lactogenic (PRL) binding species present in crude membrane fraction (CMF) or detergent-solubilized preparations of rat liver have been investigated. (1) The highest specific binding to CMF was obtained with an incubation time of 50 h at 20 degrees C and with a 50 mM potassium(More)
Affinity cross-linking technique revealed the presence of three growth hormone-binding proteins (GHBP) in dealbuminized rat serum. The apparent molecular weights, as estimated by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, were 52,000, 44,000 and 39,000. By use of carbohydrate chain cleaving enzymes it was found that the binding proteins(More)
