The Gadd45 family of proteins includes Gadd45alpha, MyD118/Gadd45beta, and CR6/OIG37/Gadd45gamma. These proteins play important roles in maintaining genomic stability and in regulating the cell cycle. This study reports the cloning of a novel protein called CR6-interacting factor 1 (CRIF1) which interacts with Gadd45alpha, MyD118/Gadd45beta, and(More)
Triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells (TREM)-like transcript-1 (TLT-1) is an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM)-baring TREM family protein. In this study, we identified an alternative transcript form of TLT-1, namely TLT-1s, which has very short extracellular immunoglobulin domain consisting of only 202 amino acids. TLT-1s was(More)
Osteoclasts differentiate from macrophage-lineage cells to become specialized for bone resorption function. By a proteomics approach, we found that Lyn was down-regulated by the osteoclast differentiation factor, receptor activator of NF-kappaB ligand (RANKL). The forced reduction of Lyn caused a striking increase in the RANKL-induced PLCgamma1, Ca(2+), and(More)
CKII plays a significant role in cell proliferation and cell cycle control. In this report, yeast two-hybrid assay and pull-down assay demonstrate that CKBBP2/CRIF1 associates with the beta subunit of CKII in vitro and in vivo. Recombinant CKBBP2/CRIF1 is phosphorylated in vitro by purified CKII and by CKII inhibitor apigenin-sensitive protein kinase in(More)
Resveratrol is a phytoalexin found in grapes and other foods that has been shown to have anticancer and anti-inflammatory effects. Because protein kinase CKII is involved in cell proliferation and oncogenesis, we examined whether resveratrol could modulate CKII activity. Resveratrol was shown to inhibit the phosphotransferase activity of CKII with IC(50) of(More)
The CKII (EC 2.7.1.37) inhibitory compound was purified from the root barks of Cudrania tricuspidata and identified as (2S)-2-[2,4-dihydroxy-5-(3-methyl-but-2-enyl)-phenyl]-5,7-dihyroxy-6-(3-methyl-but-2-enyl)chroman-4-one (euchrestaflavanone B). Euchrestaflavanone B was shown to inhibit the phosphotransferase activity of CKII with IC50 of about 78 microM.(More)
Elevated phospholipase D (PLD) expression prevents cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. However, the roles of PLD isoforms in cell proliferation and apoptosis are incompletely understood. Here, we investigated the physiological significance of the interaction between PLD2 and protein kinase CKII (CKII) in HCT116 human colorectal carcinoma cells. PLD2 interacted(More)
Nuclear factor of activated T cells c1 (NFATc1) is a transcription factor crucial for the differentiation of osteoclasts. In this study we discovered new signaling pathways involving cAMP regulators that modulate NFATc1 during osteoclastogenesis. The osteoclast differentiation factor receptor activator of NF-κB ligand (RANKL) increased the expression of(More)
Lipid raft microdomains have important roles in various cellular responses. Caveolae are a specialized type of lipid rafts that are stabilized by oligomers of caveolin proteins. Here, we show that caveolin-1 (Cav-1) plays a crucial role in the regulation of osteoclastogenesis. We found that caveolin-1 was dramatically up-regulated by receptor activator of(More)
Cellular DNA topoisomerase I is an important target in cancer chemotherapy. A chloroform extract of the root barks of Cudrania tricuspidata showed an inhibitory effect on mammalian DNA topoisomerase I. The topoisomerase I inhibitory compound was purified and identified as 2',5,7-trihydroxy-4',5'-(2,2-dimethylchromeno)-8-(3-hydroxy-3-methylbutyl) flavanone.(More)
