Mammalian transcriptome analysis has uncovered tens of thousands of novel transcripts of unknown function (TUFs). Classical and recent examples suggest that the majority of TUFs may underlie vital intracellular functions as non-coding RNAs because of their low coding potentials. However, only a portion of TUFs have been studied to date, and the functional(More)
Soluble oligosaccharides derived from the surface of human erythrocytes were tested for their ability to competitively inhibit invasion of erythrocytes by Plasmodium falciparum, a malarial parasite. Invasion was most effectively inhibited by erythroglycan, a carbohydrate component of the band 3 transmembrane protein. The lactosamine chains of erythroglycan(More)
The substrate specificity of cAMP-dependent protein kinase A (PKA) is controlled by its interaction with the A-kinase anchoring protein (AKAP) family. Individual AKAP members are localized to particular intracellular sites and tether PKA specifically to the subcellular compartments where target substrates exist. Here, we report that the human hypothetical(More)
