Autophagy is a diverse family of processes that transport cytoplasm and organelles into the lysosome/vacuole lumen for degradation. During macroautophagy cargo is packaged in autophagosomes that fuse with the lysosome/vacuole. During microautophagy cargo is directly engulfed by the lysosome/vacuole membrane. Piecemeal microautophagy of the nucleus (PMN)(More)
P-glycoprotein (MDR1), that confers multidrug resistance in cancer, and the cystic-fibrosis transmembrane-conductance regulator (CFTR), that is causative defective in cystic fibrosis, belong to the family of ATP-binding transport proteins. The expression of MDR1 and CFTR in human epithelial tissues and the cell lines T84 and HT29 was estimated by(More)
Poly(A)+RNA was prepared from primary cultures of human nasal polyp epithelia and from native bovine tracheal epithelia. Six to fifty nanograms mRNA were injected into prophase-arrested immature Xenopus laevis oocytes. One to four days later the oocytes were probed with electrophysiological techniques for induction of novel ion conductances. Oocytes(More)
We have measured the frequency of the ΔF508 mutation in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene and its association with cystic fibrosis (CF)-linked marker haplotypes in the German population. Based on the analysis of 400 CF chromosomes, the frequency of the ΔF508 mutation is estimated to be 77.3%, the vast majority being(More)
The F508 deletion in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene was found in 8 out of 30 Turkish cystic fibrosis (CF) chromosomes (27%). Five Turkish ΔF508 CF chromosomes were associated with the risk haplotype B in KM19 (2 allele)/XV2c (1 allele). In the Turkish population, cystic fibrosis is predominantly caused by mutations other(More)
