The nuclear pore complex (NPC) gates the only known conduit for molecular exchange between the nucleus and cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells. Macromolecular transport across the NPC is mediated by nucleocytoplasmic shuttling receptors termed karyopherins (Kaps). Kaps interact with NPC proteins (nucleoporins) that contain FG peptide repeats (FG Nups) and(More)
A thorough analysis of the protein interaction partners of the yeast GTPase Gsp1p was carried out by a multidimensional chromatography strategy of strong cation exchange fractionation of peptides followed by reverse phase LC-ESI-MSMS using a QSTAR instrument. This dataset was then analyzed using the latest developmental version of Protein Prospector. The(More)
The nucleoporins Nup60p, Nup2p, and Nup1p form part of the nuclear basket structure of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae nuclear pore complex (NPC). Here, we show that these necleoporins can be isolated from yeast extracts by affinity chromatography on karyopherin Kap95p-coated beads. To characterize Nup60p further, Nup60p-coated beads were used to capture its(More)
The novel tumor suppressor RASSF1A is frequently inactivated during human tumorigenesis by promoter methylation. RASSF1A may serve as a node in the integration of signaling pathways controlling a range of critical cellular functions including cell cycle, genomic instability, and apoptosis. The mechanism of action of RASSF1A remains under investigation. We(More)
An in-depth analysis of a multidimensional chromatography-mass spectrometry dataset acquired on a quadrupole selecting, quadrupole collision cell, time-of-flight (QqTOF) geometry instrument was carried out. A total of 3269 CID spectra were acquired. Through manual verification of database search results and de novo interpretation of spectra 2368 spectra(More)
Mass spectrometry has become the technology of choice for detailed identification of proteins in complex mixtures. Although electrophoretic separation, proteolytic digestion, mass spectrometric analysis of unseparated digests, and database searching have become standard methods in widespread use, peptide sequence information obtained by collision-induced(More)
The RASSF1A tumor suppressor binds and activates proapoptotic MST kinases. The Salvador adaptor protein couples MST kinases to the LATS kinases to form the hippo pathway. Upon activation by RASSF1A, LATS1 phosphorylates the transcriptional regulator YAP, which binds to p73 and activates its proapoptotic effects. However, although serving as an adaptor for(More)
