Kinesin heavy chain and kinesin-related polypeptides (KRPs) comprise a family of motor proteins with diverse intracellular transport functions. Using pan-kinesin peptide antibodies that react with these proteins, we have previously purified from sea urchin eggs a trimeric microtubule-binding and bundling protein, KRP (85/95) (ref. 8) comprising subunits of(More)
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide and causes over 250,000 deaths each year. Overtreatment of indolent disease also results in significant morbidity. Common genetic alterations in prostate cancer include losses of NKX3.1 (8p21) and PTEN (10q23), gains of AR (the androgen receptor gene) and fusion of ETS family transcription(More)
To elucidate the role of ETS gene fusions in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), we characterized the transcriptome of 54 CRPC tumor samples from men with locally advanced or metastatic disease. Trefoil factor 3 (TFF3) emerged as the most highly differentially regulated gene with respect to ERG rearrangement status and resistance to hormone(More)
Primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) is a rare autosomal (2q37.3) recessive metabolic disease caused by a deficiency of the hepatic peroxisomal enzyme alanine:glyoxylate amino transferase. Molecular heterogeneity is important in PH1 as most of the patients (if the parents are unrelated) are compound heterozygotes for rare mutations. We describe the first(More)
Almost three decades have passed since actin-cytoskeleton (acto-myosin complex) was first discovered in non-muscle cells. A combination of cell biology, biochemistry, and molecular biology has revealed the structure and function of many actin-binding proteins and their physiological role in the regulation of cell motility, shape, growth, and malignant(More)
