We isolated a gene encoding a 218 kDa myosin-like protein from Saccharomyces cerevisiae using a monoclonal antibody directed against human platelet myosin as a probe. The protein sequence encoded by the MLP1 gene (for myosin-like protein) contains extensive stretches of a heptad-repeat pattern suggesting that the protein can form coiled coils typical of(More)
A novel cytokine from a thymic stromal cell line (thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP)) promotes the development of B220+/IgM+ immature B cells when added to fetal liver cultures, long term bone marrow cultures, or bone marrow cells plated in semisolid medium. Because the activities of TSLP overlap with those of IL-7 in some in vitro assays, we compared the(More)
The partial sequence of a gene encoding the COOH terminus of a protein of apparent molecular weight of 160 kD associated with the flagellum of trypomastigotes of Trypanosoma cruzi (FL-160 now renamed to FL-160-1) has been previously reported. The COOH terminus of FL-160-1 has an epitope, defined by 12 amino acids, which molecularly miMics a nervous tissue(More)
