ADP-ribosylation factors (ARFs) are small GTP-binding proteins that are regulators of vesicle trafficking in eukaryotic cells [1]. ARNO is a member of the family of guanine nucleotide exchange factors for ARFs which includes cytohesin-1 and GRP-1 [2] [3-5]. Members of this family contain a carboxy-terminal pleckstrin homology (PH) domain which, in the case(More)
Peroxisome-to-mitochondrion mistargeting of the homodimeric enzyme alanine:glyoxylate aminotransferase 1 (AGT) in the autosomal recessive disease primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) is associated with the combined presence of a normally occurring Pro(11)Leu polymorphism and a PH1-specific Gly170Arg mutation. The former leads to the formation of a novel(More)
Alanine/glyoxylate aminotransferase 1 (AGT) is peroxisomal in most normal humans, but in some patients with the hereditary disease primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1), AGT is mislocalized to the mitochondria. In an attempt to identify the sequences in AGT that mediate its targeting to peroxisomes, and to determine the mechanism by which AGT is mistargeted in(More)
The molecular basis of the variable species-specific peroxisomal and/or mitochondrial targeting of the enzyme alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase 1 (AGT) has been studied in human fibroblasts by confocal immunofluorescence microscopy after intranuclear microinjection of various human, rabbit, marmoset, and feline AGT cDNA constructs. The expression of(More)
Centaurin-α is a 46 kDa in Šitro binding protein for the lipid second messenger PtdIns(3,4,5)P $ . In this report we have addressed whether centaurin-α " , a human homologue of centaurin-α, binds PtdIns(3,4,5)P $ in ŠiŠo and furthermore, identified a potential physiological function for centaurin-α " . Using confocal microscopy of live PC12 cells,(More)
