Phosphoinositide 3-kinase gamma is a multifunctional enzyme with lipid and protein kinase activities that also acts as a scaffold protein in many diverse signalling processes. The enzyme contains five different domains, but their individual contributions to membrane binding are not fully understood. Here, using in vitro liposome binding assays of individual(More)
Recently, meizothrombin (MT), an intermediate enzyme in the prothrombin cleavage cascade has been shown to activate cells of a brain tumor cell line by interaction with PAR-1-type thrombin receptors with a potency comparable to that of thrombin. In this study, we investigated the effect of recombinant human MT (rMT) on calcium mobilization in primary(More)
A merocrine released protein (named 115k protein) was highly enriched from the secretion of the rat coagulating gland. The protein has a molecular mass of 115 kDa as calculated by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions. Furthermore, the 115 kDa protein is glycosylated, and carries Man, GlcNAc, Gal, Fuc and sialic acid residues. For identification, N-terminal(More)
Phosphoinositide 3-kinase γ (PI3Kγ) has been implicated in a variety of cellular signaling processes. It is a multifunctional enzyme with lipid and protein kinase activity that also acts as a scaffold protein. Although it is well known that membrane recruitment is essential for the phosphorylation of phosphoinositides, the cellular localization of PI3Kγ as(More)
