Extracellular matrix (ECM), prepared from chick embryo fibroblasts, contains fibronectin as the major structural protein along with collagen and other polypeptides as less abundant protein components. When Rous sarcoma virus-transformed chick embryo fibroblasts are cultured on the ECM in the presence of the tumor promoter tetradecanoyl phorbol acetate, the(More)
Efficient stop codon recognition and peptidyl-tRNA hydrolysis are essential in order to terminate translational elongation and maintain protein sequence fidelity. Eukaryotic translational termination is mediated by a release factor complex that includes eukaryotic release factor 1 (eRF1) and eRF3. The N terminus of eRF1 contains highly conserved sequence(More)
A 1610-bp DNA duplex coding for human tissue-type plasminogen activator has been chemically synthesized using the phosphoramidite procedure, adapted for a custom-built gene synthesizer. The synthesizer, which was designed for both simplicity and speed, permits the rapid construction of relatively large genes and compares favorably in speed with alternative(More)
