To identify biomarkers for predicting sensitivity to phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitors, we have developed a proteomics-based approach. Using surface-enhanced laser desorption-ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (SELDI-TOF MS), we measured the expression of 393 proteins in 39 human cancer cell lines (JFCR-39), and combined it with our(More)
A novel SELDI-TOF MS-based method for analyzing phosphoproteins was developed using a series of recombinant wild-type and mutant ribosomal P2 proteins. We demonstrated that the phosphorylation status of the overexpressed proteins in cells was easily and rapidly confirmed using this method. The ribosomal P2 protein contained two phosphorylation sites, which(More)
Class I phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K) consists of four isoforms of the catalytic subunit, p110alpha, -beta, -delta and -gamma, generated from the genes PIK3CA, -B, -D and -G, respectively. These isoforms show different tissue distribution and some specific and indispensable functions in various biological pathways such as development, inflammation,(More)
Phosphoproteins play important roles in a vast series of biological processes. Recent proteomic technologies offer the comprehensive analyses of phosphoproteins. Recently, we demonstrated that surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass (SELDI-TOF MS) would detect phosphoproteins quantitatively, which was a new application of SELDI-TOF(More)
Downregulated in renal cell carcinoma 1 (DRR1) has important roles in tumor cell growth, neuron survival and spine formation, and was recently shown to bind actin. However, the roles of nuclear DRR1 remain largely unexplored. Here, we identified an interaction between filamentous actin (F-actin) and DRR1 in the nucleus, and demonstrated that copper(More)
