Mutations in the parkin gene are responsible for a common familial form of Parkinson's disease. As parkin encodes an E3 ubiquitin ligase, defects in proteasome-mediated protein degradation are believed to have a central role in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease. Here, we report a novel role for parkin in a proteasome-independent ubiquitination(More)
Several enzymes involved in the phosphoinositide metabolism have been shown to be present in nuclei of rat liver and Friend cells. In this paper we demonstrate that nuclear matrices of mouse NIH 3T3-fibroblasts and rat liver cells, isolated by nuclease treatment and high salt extraction, contain phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase (PdtIns 4-kinase),(More)
Both the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and the insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) can contribute to tumor development and -progression through their effects on cell proliferation, inhibition of apoptosis, angiogenesis, anchorage-independent growth and tumor-associated inflammation. EGFR-targeting monoclonal antibodies and small(More)
Correlative microscopy is a powerful technique that combines the strengths of fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy. The first enables rapid searching for regions of interest in large fields of view while the latter exhibits superior resolution over a narrow field of view. Routine use of correlative microscopy is seriously hampered by the(More)
Cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) kill target cells through the polarized release of lytic molecules from secretory lysosomes. Loss of munc13-4 function inhibits this process and causes familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis type 3 (FHL3). munc13-4 binds rab27a, but the necessity of the complex remains enigmatic, because studies in knockout models suggest(More)
Phosphatidylinositol 4-kinasebeta (PI4Kbeta) plays an essential role in maintaining the structural integrity of the Golgi complex. In a search for PI4Kbeta-interacting proteins, we found that PI4Kbeta specifically interacts with the GTP-bound form of the small GTPase rab11. The PI4Kbeta-rab11 interaction is of functional significance because inhibition of(More)
Over the past decades advances in bioengineering and expanded insight in tumor immunology have resulted in the emergence of novel bispecific antibody (bsAb) constructs that are capable of redirecting immune effector cells to the tumor microenvironment. (Pre-) clinical studies of various bsAb constructs have shown impressive results in terms of immune(More)
In a number of recent studies it has been shown that in vivo part of the EGF receptor (EGFR) population is associated to the actin filament system. In this paper we demonstrate that the purified EGFR can be cosedimented with purified filamentous actin (F-actin) indicating a direct association between EGFR and actin. A truncated EGFR, previously shown not to(More)
In this paper we demonstrate that cytoskeletons isolated from A431 cells have associated with them high activities of several kinases involved in inositol lipid metabolism, such as phosphatidylinositol kinase, phosphatidylinositol phosphate kinase, and diacylglycerol kinase. In addition also phospholipase C activity was detected on isolated cytoskeletons.(More)
The hepatocyte growth factor receptor (HGFR, c-Met or Met) is a receptor tyrosine kinase that is involved in embryogenesis, tissue regeneration and wound healing. Abnormal activation of this proto-oncogene product is implicated in the development, progression and metastasis of many cancers. Current therapies directed against Met, such as ligand- or,(More)
