The endocytic accessory clathrin assembly lymphoid myeloid leukemia protein (CALM) is the ubiquitously expressed homolog of the neuron-specific protein AP180 that has been implicated in the retrieval of synaptic vesicle. Here, we show that CALM associates with the alpha-appendage domain of the AP2 adaptor via the three peptide motifs 420DPF, 375DIF and(More)
We have characterized a novel clathrin-binding 68-kDa epsin N-terminal homology domain (ENTH-domain) protein that we name clathrin interacting protein localized in the trans-Golgi region (Clint). It localizes predominantly to the Golgi region of epithelial cells as well as to more peripheral vesicular structures. Clint colocalizes with AP-1 and clathrin(More)
Receptor-mediated endocytosis of ligands, such as transferrin and LDL, is suppressed when clathrin synthesis is blocked by RNA interference in HeLa cells. We have found that domains containing the adapter complex 2 (AP2)-coated vesicle adapter and the endocytic accessory proteins CALM (clathrin assembly lymphoid myeloid leukemia protein), epsin, and(More)
The Na(+)/H(+) exchanger isoform NHE2 is highly expressed in the intestinal tract, but its physiological role has remained obscure. The aim of this study was to define its expression, location, and regulatory properties in murine colon and to look for the compensatory changes in NHE2 (-/-) colon that allow normal histology and absorptive function. To this(More)
Zur Behandlung von durchgreifenden Makulalöchern wird allgemein empfohlen, bei der Vitrektomie die hintere Glaskörperrinde und ggf. epiretinale Membranen von der Netzhaut zu entfernen, um die Makula von den vermuteten intravitrealen Zugkräften zu entlasten. Zusätzlich zu diesen Strukturen haben wir seit einiger Zeit auch noch die Membrana limitans interna(More)
Two new components of basal laminar deposit (BlamD) occurring in samples of submacular neovascular membranes surgically removed from patients with a wet (exudative) form of age-related macular degeneration are described. They are: (1) minute ribbon-like structures which occur singly and/or in a bunch and extend from the inner surface of the BlamD layer into(More)
Epoxy resins provide optimal tissue morphology at both the light and the electron microscopic level and therefore enable correlative studies on semithin and thin sections from the same tissue block. Here we report on an approach to retain these advantages for immunolabeling studies by adapting and combining well-known techniques, i.e., surface etching with(More)
The present study was designed to evaluate different techniques for the in situ detection of apoptosis in human and rat small intestinal epithelium. The techniques included light microscopy (LM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) observation of epoxy resin-embedded tissue, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), TUNEL assay, and antibodies directed(More)
Parietal cell (PC) proton secretion via H(+)/K(+)-ATPase requires apical K(+) recycling. A variety of K(+) channels and transporters are expressed in the PC and the molecular nature of the apical K(+) recycling channel is under debate. This study was undertaken to delineate the exact function of KCNQ1 channels in gastric acid secretion. Acid secretory rates(More)
Hereditary pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (herPAP) is a rare lung disease caused by mutations in the granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) receptor genes, resulting in disturbed alveolar macrophage differentiation, massive alveolar proteinosis, and life-threatening respiratory insufficiency. So far, the only effective treatment for(More)
