We have cloned and expressed nine Ca(2+)-activated K+ channel isoforms from human brain. The open reading frames encode proteins ranging from 1154 to 1195 amino acids, and all possess significant identity with the slowpoke gene products in Drosophila and mouse. All isoforms are generated by alternative RNA splicing of a single gene on chromosome 10 at band(More)
During embryogenesis, the beta 3 tubulin gene of Drosophila is transcribed predominantly in the mesoderm. We have raised antibodies specific to the C-terminal domain of the beta 3 tubulin and analysed by immunostaining the distribution of this tubulin isotype during Drosophila embryogenesis. The protein is first detectable in the cephalic mesoderm at(More)
Sodium dodecyl sulfate-solubilized Sendai virus large (L) protein was highly purified by a one-step procedure, using hydroxylapatite column chromatography. Monoclonal antibodies addressed to the carboxyl-terminal amino acid sequence of the L protein were used for monitoring L protein during purification. By removing sodium dodecyl sulfate from purified L(More)
Retroviruses code for a virus-specific protease which is essential for polyprotein processing and viral infectivity. The human immune deficiency virus-1 protease is an aspartic protease of 9 kDa which was synthesized by recombinant DNA technology and arises by autocatalytic processing from a polyprotein precursor which has recently been demonstrated by use(More)
We have cloned and expressed a Ca(2+)-activated K+ channel beta-subunit from human brain. The open reading frame encodes a 191-amino acid protein possessing significant homology to a previously described subunit cloned from bovine muscle. The gene for this subunit is located on chromosome 5 at band q34 (hslo-beta). There is no evidence for alternative RNA(More)
The paper describes a rapid and sensitive assay for DNA binding proteins which interact with specific and defined binding sites. It exploits the observation that complexes of proteins and small synthetic DNA fragments (40 bp) containing the protein/DNA binding site can enter native polyacrylamide gels and remain stably associated during electrophoresis(More)
Transcription from one of the two initiation sites, P1 and P2, of the dual human MYC promoter seems to be essential in all proliferating cells. To identify proteins and target structures for MYC regulation, a DNA region was analyzed that is critical for P2 promoter activity. Here, we show that a nuclear factor binds to a DNA element within P2, which is(More)
Three sequence components direct high affinity binding of dimeric SV40 T antigen to SV40 origin region I. Two signals are encoded by two directly repeated 5'-GAGGC-3' pentanucleotides. Approximately equal contributions to binding stability are made by each pentanucleotide, and both spacing and orientation of the pentanucleotides are important for binding(More)
