The receptor on human neutrophils (polymorphonuclear leukocytes or PMN) that mediates cellular adherence has been purified from the peripheral blood PMN obtained from an individual with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). This receptor consists of two noncovalently associated subunits, designated alpha M (Mac-1 alpha, CD11b) (Mr = 170,000) and beta (Mac-1(More)
An intronless gene encoding a protein of 652 amino acid residues with an M(r) of 71,266, showing between 79% and 59% identity in nucleotide sequence with heat shock protein 70 (HSP 70) genes of Bremia lactucae (a parasitic Oomycete of lettuce) and a wide range of organisms that include humans, was isolated from the nonparasitic Oomycete Achlya klebsiana.(More)
Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by bone marrow failure, congenital abnormalities, and an increased risk for cancer and leukemia. Components of the FA-BRCA pathway are thought to function in the repair of DNA interstrand cross-links. Central to this pathway is the monoubiquitylation and chromatin localization of 2 FA proteins, FA(More)
Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by bone marrow failure and an increased risk for leukemia and cancer. Fifteen proteins thought to function in the repair of DNA interstrand crosslinks (ICLs) comprise what is known as the FA-BRCA pathway. Activation of this pathway leads to the monoubiquitylation and chromatin localization of(More)
Secretion of biologically active human interferon α2 and a bacterial (Cellulomonas fimi) endoglucanase from Aspergillus nidulans is described. The genes encoding these proteins were linked to NH2–terminal fungal secretion signal sequences, synthetic or natural, and expression was regulated by the strong controllable promoters of the A. nidulans alcohol(More)
Fanconi anemia is a genetic disease resulting in bone marrow failure, birth defects, and cancer that is thought to encompass a defect in maintenance of genomic stability. Mutations in 16 genes (FANCA, B, C, D1, D2, E, F, G, I, J, L, M, N, O, P, and Q) have been identified in patients, with the Fanconi anemia subtype J (FA-J) resulting from homozygous(More)
The finished sequence of human chromosome 20 comprises 59,187,298 base pairs (bp) and represents 99.4% of the euchromatic DNA. A single contig of 26 megabases (Mb) spans the entire short arm, and five contigs separated by gaps totalling 320 kb span the long arm of this metacentric chromosome. An additional 234,339 bp of sequence has been determined within(More)
Chromosome 9 is highly structurally polymorphic. It contains the largest autosomal block of heterochromatin, which is heteromorphic in 6-8% of humans, whereas pericentric inversions occur in more than 1% of the population. The finished euchromatic sequence of chromosome 9 comprises 109,044,351 base pairs and represents >99.6% of the region. Analysis of the(More)
The promoter region of the human factor H gene was cloned and a 3 kb Eco RI fragment was sequenced. Primer extension and S1 nuclease analysis were used to determine the transcription start site, which was found to be 10-11 nucleotides upstream of the published cDNA sequence. No canonical TATA or CCAAT boxes were found in conjunction with this site. The(More)
