HIP was originally identified as a gene expression in primary liver cancers, and in normal tissues such as pancreas and small intestine. Based on gene data base homologies, the HIP protein should consist of a signal peptide linked to a single carbohydrate recognition domain. To test this hypothesis HIP and the putative carbohydrate recognition domain(More)
Nuclear proteins were extracted in 2 M NaCl from membrane-depleted nuclei isolated from HL60 cells. Extracted proteins were submitted to affinity chromatography columns containing immobilized glucose, galactose or lactose. The polypeptides present in the different eluted fractions were resolved by SDS-PAGE and were either silver stained or analysed by(More)
The expression of the carbohydrate-binding protein CBP70 was analyzed in undifferentiated HL60 cells, HL60 cells differentiated into monocytes/macrophages or granulocytes, healthy monocytes and in vitro monocyte-derived macrophages (MDM) using an anti-CBP70 serum. This study was performed by immunoblotting analysis of nuclear and cytoplasmic extracts before(More)
CBP70 is a glycoslylated lectin that interacts through either glycan-lectin or protein-protein interactions. In addition, depending on its cellular localization, this lectin has different partners, for example, galectin-3, an 82-kDa ligand in the nucleus, or Bcl-2 in the cytoplasm. In this study, we observed the persistence of plurilocalized lectin CBP70(More)
Prion diseases are characterized by the presence of an abnormal isoform of the cellular prion protein (PrPc) whose physiological role still remains elusive. To better understand the function of PrPc, it is important to identify the different subcellular localization(s) of the protein and the different partners with which it might be associated. In this(More)
We have previously reported that two carbohydrate-binding proteins (CBP35 and CBP70) can, under appropriate conditions of affinity chromatography, be isolated from HL60 cell nuclear extracts as a complex. Moreover, we have demonstrated that, during affinity chromatography, the CBP70-CBP35 association can be modified by the binding of lactose to CBP35. To(More)
Traditional software modeling tools are rigid and formal. There is no support for, e.g. freeform sketching that does not conform to the used meta-model, and hence, a lot of the actual modeling work gets done with other methods. Modeling tools are used merely for documenting the work later on, which is not economical. There is a need for flexible modeling(More)
Some years ago, a lectin designated CBP70 that recognized glucose (Glc) but had a stronger affinity for N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc), was first isolated from HL60 cell nuclei. Recently, a cytoplasmic form of this lectin was described, and one 82 kDa nuclear ligand was characterized for the nuclear CBP70. In the present study, the use of Pronase digestion(More)
Using neoglycoproteins, lectins that recognize different sugars, including N-acetylglucosamine residues, were previously detected in animal cell nuclei. We report herein the isolation of two N-acetylglucosamine-binding proteins from HL60 cell nuclei: i) a 22 kDa polypeptide (CBP22) with an isoelectric point of 4.5 was isolated for the first time and ii) a(More)
