The largest subunit of RNA polymerase II contains a unique C-terminal domain (CTD) consisting of tandem repeats of the consensus heptapeptide sequence Tyr1-Ser2-Pro3-Thr4-Ser5-Pro6-Ser7. Two forms of the largest subunit can be separated by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The faster migrating form termed IIA contains little or no phosphate on the(More)
Recent biochemical and sequence data suggest a possible relationship between Pgp-1 (identical to CD44/Hermes 1/p85) and a hyaluronic acid-binding function. Here, we have studied the hyaluronic acid-binding activity of a series of murine hematopoietic cell lines using several assays: cell aggregation by hyaluronic acid, binding of fluorescein-conjugated(More)
It has been suggested that effects of anti-transferrin receptor antibodies on cell growth and receptor expression are the result of varying degrees of receptor crosslinking by bi- and multivalet binding agents. In order to study this question directly, we have cultured murine lymphoma cells in mono- and divalent fragments from IgG and IgM monoclonal(More)
Ligation of the antigen receptor on B cells induces the rapid phosphorylation of tyrosine on a number of cellular proteins. A monoclonal antibody that recognized a tyrosine-phosphorylated cell surface protein that was present in activated B cells was generated. Amino acid sequence analysis showed that this 140-kilodalton protein was CD22, a B cell-specific(More)
A mAb produced by immunization of mice with tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins from activated B lymphocytes was found to recognize valosin-containing protein (VCP). VCP is the mammalian homologue of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae CDC48 protein and has localized regions of sequence identity with the yeast Sec18 and Pas1 proteins and the mammalian NSF protein,(More)
We have used a monoclonal antibody against the murine transferrin receptor to study the expression of the transferrin receptor on the hematopoietic progenitor cells (BFU-E, CFU-E, and CFU-C) present in mouse bone marrow. Elutriation and cell-sorting data are consistent with the hypothesis that most CFU-E are transferrin receptor positive while most BFU-E(More)
A rat monoclonal antibody against the murine transferrin receptor has been identified. The receptor is a 95,000 molecular weight species that exists in the cell membrane as a disulphide-bonded dimer. Whereas 29 of 29 murine hematopoietic tumor cell lines express detectable numbers of transferrin receptors, less than 1% of adult thymocytes or spleen cells(More)
The Pgp-1 glycoprotein is found on the bone marrow prothymocyte; however, only a few percent of cells within the normal thymus express significant quantities of Pgp-1 glycoprotein. One hypothesis is that some or all of these Pgp-1+ thymocytes represent thymocyte progenitors or the immediate descendents of the bone marrow-derived prothymocyte. A cell present(More)
Five anti-murine transferrin receptor monoclonal antibodies have been characterized with respect to immunoglobulin class, effects on binding of transferrin, and effects on AKR1 lymphoma cell growth in vitro. The immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies, but not the IgG antibodies, prevent cell growth. We suggest that the profound effects of the IgM antibodies on(More)
Some anti-murine transferrin receptor monoclonal antibodies block iron uptake in mouse cell lines and inhibit cell growth. We report here the selection and characterization of mutant murine lymphoma cell lines which escape this growth inhibition by anti-transferrin receptor antibody. Growth assays and immunoprecipitation of transferrin receptor in hybrids(More)
