Syk is a protein tyrosine kinase that is widely expressed in haematopoietic cells. It is involved in coupling activated immunoreceptors to downstream signalling events that mediate diverse cellular responses including proliferation, differentiation and phagocytosis. Syk expression has been reported in cell lines of epithelial origin, but its function in(More)
The intracellular precipitation of nonerythrocyte spectrin has been achieved by the microinjection into cells of either a monoclonal antibody (IgM) directed against the alpha chain of nonerythrocyte spectrin or an affinity-purified polyclonal antibody raised against bovine brain spectrin (fodrin). This antibody-induced precipitation of spectrin was observed(More)
In this review we discuss some of the proteins for which a role in linking actin to the fibroblast plasma membrane has been suggested. We focus on the family of proteins related to erythrocyte spectrin, proteins that have generally been viewed as having an organization and a function in actin-membrane attachment similar to those of erythrocyte spectrin.(More)
The trafficking of the androgen receptor (AR) in transfected cells was studied using a green fluorescent protein (GFP)-AR chimera. The reporter molecule GFP enabled the localization of AR in living cells with a good spatial and temporal resolution. After the construction of GFP-AR and verification of the size of the fusion protein produced, we demonstrated(More)
The gastric parietal (oxyntic) cell is presented as a model for studying the dynamic assembly of the skeletal infrastructure of cell membranes. A monoclonal antibody directed to a 95-kD antigen of acid-secreting membranes of rat parietal cells was characterized as a tracer of the membrane movement occurring under physiological stimuli. The membrane(More)
The ubiquitous Na,K- and the gastric H,K-pumps are heterodimeric plasma membrane proteins composed of an alpha and a beta subunit. The H,K-ATPase beta subunit (beta HK) can partially act as a surrogate for the Na,K-ATPase beta subunit (beta NK) in the formation of functional Na,K-pumps (Horisberger et al., 1991. J. Biol. Chem. 257:10338-10343). We have(More)
Levels of the c-fos protein were assayed in mouse cerebellar granule cells during their in vitro development under different culture conditions. When grown in media favoring both their survival and differentiation, i.e. in the presence of 30 mM K+ or 12.5 mM K+ plus 100 microM N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), the c-fos protein becomes detectable in the nucleus(More)
Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), secretin, catecholamines and prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) in the presence of a cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase inhibitor stimulate the accumulation of cyclic AMP in two colorectal carcinoma cell lines (HT 29 and HRT 18) with subsequent activation of the cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinases. In HT 29 cells incubated(More)
