Human infection by Marburg (MBG) or Ebola (EBO) virus is associated with fatal haemorrhagic fevers. While these filoviruses may both incite disease as a result of explosive virus replication, we hypothesized that expression of individual viral gene products, such as the envelope glycoprotein (GP), may directly alter target cells and contribute to(More)
Human infections by Marburg (MBG) and Ebola (EBO) viruses result in lethal hemorrhagic fever. To identify cellular entry factors employed by MBG virus, noninfectible cells transduced with an expression library were challenged with a selectable pseudotype virus packaged by MBG glycoproteins (GP). A cDNA encoding the folate receptor-alpha (FR-alpha) was(More)
Since the Marburg (MBG) and Ebola (EBO) viruses have sequence homology and cause similar diseases, we hypothesized that they associate with target cells by similar mechanisms. Pseudotype viruses prepared with a luciferase-containing human immunodeficiency virus type 1 backbone and packaged by the MBG virus or the Zaire subtype EBO virus glycoproteins (GP)(More)
To study the role of protein kinase C (PKC) and its substrates in neuronal function, we have investigated the in vitro endogenous phosphorylation of the neuronal phosphoprotein F1 after induction of synaptic plasticity by long-term potentiation (LTP). The protein F1 phosphorylation was found to increase 5 min (Routtenberg et al., 1985), 1 hr (Lovinger et(More)
miR-203 is a tumour suppressor microRNA (miRNA). We studied the methylation of hsa-miR-203 in 150 samples including acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL), chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) by methylation-specific PCR, and miRNA expression by stem-loop RT-qPCR.(More)
GAP-43 is a fast-axonally transported protein whose expression correlates with periods of axon growth both during development and during regeneration. Similarities in molecular weight (43-47 kDa), pI (4.3-4.5), and aberrant behavior in acrylamide gels suggested that GAP-43 might be related or identical to protein F1, a protein kinase C substrate that has(More)
In previous work ( Papazian , D., H. Rahamimoff , and S. M. Goldin (1979) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U. S. A. 76: 3708-3712), an ATP-dependent calcium transport activity derived from rat brain synaptosomes was reconstituted into artificial lipid vesicles and substantially purified by transport-specific fractionation. When this procedure was applied to bovine(More)

The fruiting bodies of the edible mushroom Pleurotus sajor-caju were extracted with an aqueous buffer and then subjected to affinity chromatography on Affi-gel Blue gel, ion exchange chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and gel filtration on Superdex 75. From the fraction of the extract adsorbed on Affi-gel Blue gel and unadsorbed on DEAE-cellulose, a 9.5 kDa(More)
