The binding of 125I-labeled nerve growth factor (NGF) to human melanoma cell (A875) membranes, detergent-soluble membrane extracts, and membrane extracts reconstituted into phospholipid vesicles was significantly increased when binding was carried out in the presence of wheat germ agglutinin (WGA). In the absence of WGA, all 125I-NGF binding was rapidly(More)
Using site-directed mutagenesis, we have changed the asparagine in human single-chain urinary plasminogen activator (u-PA) at position 302 to an alanine. This alteration removes the only known amino acid residue glycosylated in the protein. The single-chain u-PA containing an alanine residue at position 302 instead of asparagine (scu-PA(N302A] cDNA gene was(More)
Microsomal membranes from A875 human melanoma cells contain nerve growth factor receptors (NGF-receptors) which appear to belong to a single class with homogeneous binding properties, as determined by Scatchard plots. NGF-receptors in these membrane preparations are also uniformly highly sensitive to tryptic proteolysis, and 125I-NGF bound to NGF-receptor(More)
The receptor for nerve growth factor (NGF) has been purified to near homogeneity from octylglucoside extracts of A875 melanoma cell membranes by the use of repetitive affinity chromatography on NGF-Sepharose. Elution of purified receptor (NGF receptor) was accomplished with 0.15 M NaCl, pH 11.0, containing phosphatidylcholine and octylglucoside.(More)
