We present here LOCATE, a curated, web-accessible database that houses data describing the membrane organization and subcellular localization of proteins from the FANTOM3 Isoform Protein Sequence set. Membrane organization is predicted by the high-throughput, computational pipeline MemO. The subcellular locations of selected proteins from this set were(More)
Application of a computational membrane organization prediction pipeline, MemO, identified putative type II membrane proteins as proteins predicted to encode a single alpha-helical transmembrane domain (TMD) and no signal peptides. MemO was applied to RIKEN's mouse isoform protein set to identify 1436 non-overlapping genomic regions or transcriptional units(More)
Endocytosis of the protein C activation cofactor thrombomodulin (TM) is thought to be induced by interaction of TM with its ligand, thrombin, or by the action of inflammatory cytokines on endothelial cells. To examine the internalization of TM in the absence of thrombin or cytokines we used two assays. The first was a two-colour indirect immunofluorescence(More)
Integrins promote cell-substratum and cell-cell adhesion by acting as transmembrane linker molecules between extracellular adhesion proteins and the actin-rich cytoskeleton. The integrin alpha IIb beta 3 (platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa) is essential for platelet spreading, aggregation, fibrin clot retraction, and for the transduction of extracellular(More)
Loss of thrombomodulin (TM) from the endothelial cell surface is thought to contribute to thrombosis encountered in malignant and inflammatory disease. Internalization or endocytosis of TM from the cell surface has been proposed to be one mechanism by which TM levels are reduced. Previous work has led to a view that TM is rapidly internalized using a(More)
