125I-labeled gp120 (120-kDa envelope glycoprotein) from the BH10 isolate of human immunodeficiency virus is cleaved to a limited extent with the glutamate-specific protease from Staphylococcus aureus. After disulfide bond reduction, fragments with approximate molecular masses of 95, 60, 50, and 25 kDa are produced. Tests for binding to CD4-positive cells(More)
Hsp90 encodes a ubiquitous molecular chaperone protein conserved among species which acts on multiple substrates, many of which are important cell-signaling proteins. Inhibition of Hsp90 function has been promoted as a mechanism to degrade client proteins involved in tumorigenesis and disease progression. Several assays to monitor inhibition of Hsp90(More)
Recombinant proteins representing gag and env amino acid sequences of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) (HTLV-IIIb) were produced in Escherichia coli and used to analyze sera for the presence of antibodies to HIV. ENV-9 is a protein representing the carboxy terminus of gp120 and part of gp41 which is highly immunoreactive. GAG-1 represents 83% and(More)
Inhibitors of checkpoint kinase 1 (CHK1) are of current interest as potential antitumor agents, but the most advanced inhibitor series reported to date are not orally bioavailable. A novel series of potent and orally bioavailable 3-alkoxyamino-5-(pyridin-2-ylamino)pyrazine-2-carbonitrile CHK1 inhibitors was generated by hybridization of two lead scaffolds(More)
