We have investigated the possible involvement of the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) in ribosome biogenesis. We find by immunofluorescence that ubiquitin is present within nucleoli and also demonstrate by immunoprecipitation that complexes associated with pre-rRNA processing factors are ubiquitinated. Using short proteasome inhibition treatments, we show(More)
This report demonstrates for the first time that P5, a member of the protein disulphide isomerase (PDI) family, is present in the mitochondria. Various organelles were screened for proteins bearing the CGHC motif using an affinity column conjugated with the phage antibody 5E, which cross-reacts with PDI family proteins. P5 was found in bovine liver(More)
Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) regulates diverse signaling pathways. Emerging evidence suggests that Hsp90 inhibitors, such as 17-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG), enhance DNA damage-induced cell death, suggesting that Hsp90 may regulate cellular responses to genotoxic stress. However, the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Here, we(More)
Although parvulin (Par14/eukaryotic parvulin homolog), a peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase, is found associated with the preribosomal ribonucleoprotein (pre-rRNP) complexes, its roles in ribosome biogenesis remain undetermined. In this study, we describe a comprehensive proteomics analysis of the Par14-associated pre-rRNP complexes using LC-MS/MS and a(More)
The protein 14-3-3 is a key regulator in a cell signaling pathway mediated by protein phosphorylation. To identify the cellular targets of this protein systematically, we have employed a proteomic approach: protein components pulled down from PC12 cells stably expressing a myc-tagged 14-3-3eta isoform were analyzed by means of SDS-PAGE and mass(More)
Ribosome biogenesis is an essential process for cell growth and proliferation and is enhanced in cancer and embryonic stem cells. Mouse Ly-1 antibody reactive clone product (Lyar) is expressed at very high levels in many tumor, leukemia or embryonic stem cells; is a novel nucleolar protein with zinc-finger DNA-binding motifs and is involved in cell growth(More)
Ribosome biogenesis starts with transcription of the large ribosomal RNA precursor (47S pre-rRNA), which soon combines with numerous factors to form the 90S pre-ribosome in the nucleolus. Although the subsequent separation of the pre-90S particle into pre-40S and pre-60S particles is critical for the production process of mature small and large ribosomal(More)
Protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) is an enzyme that promotes protein folding by catalyzing disulfide bridge isomerization. PDI and its relatives form a diverse protein family whose members are characterized by thioredoxin-like (TX) domains in the primary structures. The family was classified into four classes by the number and the relative positions of the(More)
Proteomic technologies powered by advancements in mass spectrometry and bioinformatics and coupled with accumulated genome sequence data allow a comprehensive study of cell function through large-scale and systematic protein identifications of protein constituents of the cell and tissues, as well as of multi-protein complexes that carry out many cellular(More)
Previously, we described a novel nucleolar protein, NOP132, which interacts with the small GTP binding protein RRAG A. To elucidate the function of NOP132 in the nucleolus, we identified proteins that interact with NOP132 using mass spectrometric methods. NOP132 associated mainly with proteins involved in ribosome biogenesis and RNA metabolism, including(More)
