Regulated fusion of secretory granules with the plasma membrane in secretory cells requires ATP, Ca2+ and cytosolic as well as membrane proteins. ATP-dependent steps in Ca(2+)-activated secretion from PC12 cells require three cytosolic PEP proteins (priming in exocytosis proteins, PEP1-3), the identity of which will provide insights into the required(More)
The cytoskeleton underlying the membrane of erythrocytes is thought to control changes in cell shape such as the diskocyte to the echinocyte. Since the binding of lectins to the transmembrane protein glycophorin blocks the cell shape change, we have proposed that the cytoplasmic end of glycophorin is linked to the cytoskeleton. Here we show that the(More)
Many of the physical properties of the erythrocyte membrane appear to depend on the membrane skeleton, which is attached to the membrane through associations with transmembrane proteins. A membrane skeletal protein, protein 4.1, is pivotal in the assembly of the membrane skeleton because of its ability to promote associations between spectrin and actin.(More)
A phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PIP) kinase was isolated and purified to near homogeneity from bovine erythrocyte membranes. The PIP kinase was extracted from bovine erythrocyte membranes with a high salt wash, followed by phosphocellulose and phenyl-Sepharose chromatography. The predominant protein after phenyl-Sepharose purification had a molecular(More)
In interphase cells, alpha-casein kinase I (alpha-CKI) is found associated with cytosolic vesicular structures, the centrosome, and within the nucleus. To identify the specific vesicular structures with which alpha-CKI is associated, established cell lines and primary rat neurons were immunofluorescently labeled with an antibody raised to alpha-CKI. In(More)
Food acquisition mode in lizards (i.e., ambush vs. widely searching) has been intensely scrutinized for the past decade to identify correlations between food acquisition mode, diet, sprint speed, and other aspects of phenotypic diversity. To begin to understand these correlations, we studied foraging mode variation in natural foraging behavior and attack(More)
