Poly C binding protein 1 (PCBP1) is an expressional regulator of the mu-opioid receptor (MOR) gene. We hypothesized the existence of a PCBP1 co-regulator modifying human MOR gene expression by protein-protein interaction with PCBP1. A human brain cDNA library was screened using the two-hybrid system with PCBP1 as the bait. Receptor for activated protein(More)
OBJECTIVES PolyC binding protein 1 (PCBP1) is a transcriptional regulator of human mu-opioid receptor (hMOR) gene in the CNS and is also related to cancer/diseases. It possesses multi-roles that can be mediated by protein-protein interactions. To understand the mechanism controlling PCBP1 functions, PCBP1-interacting protein was investigated. METHODS(More)
Vascular calcification is an important pathological condition associated with increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. Hydroxyapatite (HA) found in such deposits is the same polymorph of calcium (Ca) found in bone, indicating calcification may involve mechanisms akin to bone formation. Vascular smooth muscle cells (Vsmcs) have been shown to undergo(More)
