Osmotically active fragments of chromogranin A (Chr A) were studied in lysates from bovine chromaffin granules (CG) disrupted in the presence or absence of inhibitors of endogenous proteolytic activities. The effects of various methods of lysis were examined by micro-osmometry, PAGE-SDS electrophoretic techniques and immunoblots with polyclonal anti-Chr A(More)
Cross-linking analysis of protein complexes and structures by tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) has advantages in speed, sensitivity, specificity, and the capability of handling complicated protein assemblies. However, detection and accurate assignment of the cross-linked peptides are often challenging due to their low abundance and complicated fragmentation(More)
Microtubules (MTs) composed of αβ-tubulin heterodimers are highly dynamic polymers, whose stability can be regulated by numerous endogenous and exogenous factors. Both the antimitotic drug Taxol and microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) stabilize this dynamicity by binding to and altering the conformation of MTs. In the current study, amide(More)
PURPOSE Quantitation of β-tubulin isotype expression in taxane resistant human tumor tissue has been difficult to achieve because of the limited availability of validated antibodies. Here we present a label-free MS method to quantitate relative expression levels of β-tubulin isotypes. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Using isotype-specific reporter peptides, we(More)
UNLABELLED The arginine methyltransferase family (PRMT) has been implicated in a variety of cellular processes, including signal transduction, epigenetic regulation, and DNA repair pathways. PRMT1 is thought to be responsible for the majority of PRMT activity in Toxoplasma gondii, but its exact function is unknown. To further define the biological function(More)
Synthesis and CD and (13)C(alpha)-NMR studies in a near-neutral saline buffer are reported for a 65-residue peptide ((190)Tm(254)) comprising residues 190-254 of the alpha-tropomyosin chain. CD on a version disulfide cross-linked via the N-terminal cysteine side chains indicates that this dimer is highly helical and melts near 48 degrees C. The CD is(More)
To determine the levels of post-translational modifications, we needed a quantitative technique that would allow comparison of the amounts of acetylated versus mono-, di-, and tri-methylated lysines in histones. One method, IVICAT, generates trimethyl-amines and could be used, but is technically challenging. We have modified this technique to be used with(More)
