The phosphorylation of protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) on tyrosine residues is a critical regulatory event that modulates catalytic activity and triggers the physical association of PTKs with Src homology 2 (SH2)-containing proteins. The integrin-linked focal adhesion kinase, pp125FAK, exhibits extracellular matrix-dependent phosphorylation on tyrosine and(More)
Expression of the Rous sarcoma virus-encoded oncoprotein, pp60v-src, subverts the normal regulation of cell growth, which results in oncogenic transformation. This process requires the intrinsic protein-tyrosine kinase activity of pp60v-src and is associated with an increase in tyrosine phosphorylation of a number of cellular proteins, candidate substrates(More)
Transformation of cells by the src oncogene results in elevated tyrosine phosphorylation of two related proteins, p80 and p85 (p80/85). Immunostaining with specific monoclonal antibodies revealed a striking change of subcellular localization of p80/85 in src-transformed cells. p80/85 colocalizes with F-actin in peripheral extensions of normal cells and(More)
Cellular transformation by oncogenic retroviruses encoding protein tyrosine kinases coincides with the tyrosine-specific phosphorylation of multiple protein substrates. Previous studies have shown that tyrosine phosphorylation of a protein of 120 kDa, p120, correlated with src transformation in chicken embryo fibroblasts. Additionally, we previously(More)
Transformation of chicken embryo cells with the tyrosine kinase oncogene src results in the tyrosine phosphorylation of numerous cellular proteins. We have recently generated monoclonal antibodies to individual tyrosine phosphorylated cellular src substrates, several of which are directed to the phosphotyrosine-containing proteins p130 and p110. These(More)
We have developed an episomal inducible gene expression system in Entamoeba histolytica based on the TetR repressor. The tetR gene was placed under control of 5' and 3' ferredoxin (fdx) regulatory sequences on a plasmid encoding the hygromycin resistance gene directed by 5' and 3' hgl sequences. The reporter luciferase constructs were introduced on a second(More)
In studies aimed at identifying and characterizing pp60c-src substrates that participate in the enhanced mitogenic response to epidermal growth factor (EGF) observed in murine C3H10T1/2 fibroblasts overexpressing c-src, we have identified a 75-kDa protein (p75) whose properties are consistent with those expected of such a substrate. We present evidence to(More)
GTPase-activating protein (GAP) is a cytosolic protein that stimulates the rate of hydrolysis of GTP (GTP to GDP) bound to normal p21ras, but does not catalyze the hydrolysis of GTP bound to oncogenic, activated forms of the ras protein. Transformation of cells with v-src or activated transforming variants of c-src or stimulation of cells with epidermal(More)
Killing of human cells by the parasite Entamoeba histolytica requires adherence via an amebic cell surface lectin. Lectin activity in the parasite is regulated by inside-out signaling. The lectin cytoplasmic domain has sequence identity with a region of the beta2 integrin cytoplasmic tail implicated in regulation of integrin-mediated adhesion. Intracellular(More)
