p47v-crk (v-Crk), a transforming gene product containing Src homology (SH)-2 and -3 domains, induces an elevated level of tyrosine phosphorylation of several cellular proteins. Among these proteins, a 125-135 kDa protein (p130) shows marked phosphorylation at tyrosines and tight association with v-Crk, suggesting a direct signal mediator of v-Crk. Here we(More)
p130Cas (Cas), the protein encoded by the Crkas gene (also known as Cas), is an adaptor molecule with a unique structure that contains a Src homology (SH)-3 domain followed by multiple YXXP motifs and a proline-rich region. Cas was originally cloned as a highly tyrosine-phosphorylated protein in cells transformed by v-Src (refs 2,3) or v-Crk (ref. 4) and(More)
p130cas (Cas) is an adapter protein that has an SH3 domain followed by multiple SH2 binding motifs in the substrate domain. It also contains a tyrosine residue and a proline-rich sequence near the C terminus, which are the binding sites for the SH2 and SH3 domains of Src kinase, respectively. Cas was originally identified as a major tyrosine-phosphorylated(More)
p130Cas (Cas) has been recently identified as a 130-kDa protein that is highly phosphorylated on tyrosine residues and is stably associated with p47v-crk (v-Crk) and p60v-src (v-Src) oncogene products in cells transformed by the respective genes. Cas is a novel signaling molecule having a single Src homology (SH) 3 domain and a cluster of multiple(More)
The active form of vitamin D3, 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25-(OH)2-D3), suppresses in vitro immunoglobulin (Ig) production by activated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBM) from normal human subjects by inhibiting T helper/inducer TH cell activity. Normal PBM were fractionated into B, TH and T suppressor/cytotoxic (Ts) cells by(More)
p130Cas is a major tyrosine-phosphorylated protein that tightly binds v-Crk in v-crk-transformed cells and v-Src in v-src-transformed cells. The "substrate domain" of p130Cas contains 15 possible Src homology (SH) 2-binding motifs, most of which conform to the binding motif for the Crk SH2 domain. Another region near its C terminus contains possible binding(More)
p130(cas) (Cas) is a docking protein that contains an SH3 domain and multiple tyrosine residues. p130(cas) is located at focal adhesions, is tyrosine phosphorylated in response to integrin stimulation, and is thought to transmit signals, via c-Crk and other proteins, for the remodeling of actin stress fibers and cell movement. In a search for the ligands of(More)
Eighty patients receiving hematological stem cell transplantation (HCT) with a preparative regimen consisting of total body irradiation (12.5 Gy), cyclophosphamide (4000 or 4500 mg/m2), and thiotepa (400 mg/m2) were evaluated for the development of cardiac toxicity. Patients in whom the pretransplant cumulative dose of anthracycline was more than or equal(More)
The transforming gene v-crk found in CT10 and ASV-1 avian sarcoma viruses induces marked phosphorylation of several proteins in cells expressing p47v-crk (v-Crk). In this work, the main tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins in ASV-1-infected chicken cells and v-crk-transfected rat cells were characterized biochemically. Both these proteins have a molecular mass(More)
[structure: see text] A new excitatory amino acid, neodysiherbaine A (2), was isolated as a minor constituent of the aqueous extract from the marine sponge Dysidea herbacea. The structure was deduced by spectroscopic methods and established unambiguously by the total synthesis. The present synthesis, including as a key step cross-coupling of the(More)
