Multivalent binding proteins, such as the yeast scaffold protein Sterile-5, coordinate the location of kinases by serving as platforms for the assembly of signaling units. Similarly, in mammalian cells the cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate-dependent protein kinase (PKA) and phosphatase 2B [calcineurin (CaN)] are complexed by an A kinase anchoring(More)
Studies were performed in vivo using 35S-(1,2-dichlorovinyl)-L-cysteine, a nephrotoxin that damages the S3 segment of the proximal tubule after metabolism to a reactive intermediate. Initiation of damage (35S covalent binding) was complete by 6 hour, and an early proliferative response was observed by 24 hour in the S2 or S3C segments. Necrosis in the S3M(More)
We recently cloned a partial cDNA (35H) for a protein kinase C (PKC) binding protein from a rat kidney cDNA library and demonstrated that it is a PKC substrate in vitro (Chapline, C., Ramsay, K., Klauck, T., and Jaken, S. (1993) J. Biol. Chem. 268, 6858-6861). Additional library screening and 5' rapid amplification of cDNA ends were used to obtain the(More)
We have previously used an overlay assay technique to detect proteins that interact with protein kinase C (PKC) (Hyatt, S. L., Klauck, T., and Jaken, S. (1990) Mol. Carcinogenesis 3, 45-53). In some cases, binding proteins were also identified as substrates. Therefore, we used the overlay assay approach to screen a rat kidney lambda gt11 cDNA library to(More)
Oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of various degenerative diseases including cancer. It is now recognized that low levels of oxidants can modify cell-signaling proteins and that these modifications have functional consequences. Identifying the target proteins for redox modification is key to understanding how oxidants mediate pathological(More)

As most cells express more than one type of protein kinase C (PKC), it has been difficult to establish the role of individual PKCs in cellular functions. Isozyme differences in cofactor requirements and subcellular location, in addition to variability in expression of PKCs and substrates among various cell types, are all involved in determining the effects(More)
Treatment of HC11 mouse mammary epithelial cells with the lactogenic hormones dexamethasone, insulin, and prolactin (DIP) leads to cellular differentiation and production of the milk protein beta-casein. The following experimental evidence suggests the involvement of protein kinase C (PKC) in DIP induced signal transduction. Down-regulation of PKC by(More)
PURPOSE To define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) of the novel protein kinase inhibitor, UCN-01 (7-hydroxystaurosporine), administered as a 72-hour continuous intravenous infusion (CIV). PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-seven patients with refractory neoplasms received UCN-01 during this phase I trial. Total, free plasma, and(More)
Previously, we showed caveolae contain a population of protein kinase Calpha (PKCalpha) that appears to regulate membrane invagination. We now report that multiple PKC isoenzymes are enriched in caveolae of unstimulated fibroblasts. To understand the mechanism of PKC targeting, we prepared caveolae lacking PKCalpha and measured the interaction of(More)
TRH and phorbol dibutyrate (PDBu) stimulate PRL secretion and synthesis from GH4C1 rat pituitary cells through activation of protein kinase C (PKC). TRH responses are mediated by increases in cellular levels of two PKC activators, Ca2+ and diacylglycerol (DAG), whereas PDBu acts as a DAG analog. We conducted experiments to compare the effects of Ca2+ and(More)
