Transcription factor Nuclear Factor One (NFI) proteins are derived from a small family of four vertebrate genes (NFIA, B, C and X), all of which produce a fair number of protein variants by alternative splicing. In order to ultimately locate RNA signal sequences around exon/intron borders for the production of regulated splice variants, we have determined(More)
We describe a chemical proteomics approach to profile the interaction of small molecules with hundreds of endogenously expressed protein kinases and purine-binding proteins. This subproteome is captured by immobilized nonselective kinase inhibitors (kinobeads), and the bound proteins are quantified in parallel by mass spectrometry using isobaric tags for(More)
1 Abstract—We carry out a sequence of numerical tests to understand conditions under which rapid changes in crustal thickness can be reliably imaged by teleseismic body waves. Using the finite-difference method over a 2-D grid, we compute synthetic seismograms resulting from a planar P-wavefield incident below the grid. We then image the Moho using a(More)
Hypercalciuria is of continuing interest as one of the risk factors for stone disease in children, but the definition, incidence and pathogenesis are controversial. Therefore reference values for the urinary calcium/creatinine (Ca/Cr) ratios were established in 564 healthy children aged 6-17.9 years during the fasting state (09.00 h) and in 236 of them also(More)
The development of selective histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors with anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties remains challenging in large part owing to the difficulty of probing the interaction of small molecules with megadalton protein complexes. A combination of affinity capture and quantitative mass spectrometry revealed the selectivity with(More)
The pharmacological induction of apoptosis in neoplastic B cells presents a promising therapeutic avenue for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). We profiled a panel of clinical multi-kinase inhibitors for their ability to induce apoptosis in primary CLL cells. Whereas inhibitors targeting a large number of receptor and intracellular(More)
Jun dimerization protein 2 (JDP2) was identified as a bZIP protein that forms dimers with Jun proteins. JDP2 represses transcriptional activation of reporter constructs containing 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA)-responsive elements (TRE) or cyclic AMP responsive elements (CRE). JDP2, overexpressed by the avian retroviral vector RCAS, induces(More)
Studies of drug action classically assess biochemical activity in settings which typically contain the isolated target only. Recent technical advances in mass spectrometry-based analysis of proteins have enabled the quantitative analysis of sub-proteomes and entire proteomes, thus initiating a departure from the traditional single gene--single(More)
In recent years mass spectrometry-based proteomics has moved beyond a mere quantitative description of protein expression levels and their possible correlation with disease or drug action. Impressive progress in LC-MS instrumentation together with the availability of new enabling tools and methods for quantitative proteome analysis and for identification of(More)
The effects of glucocorticoids on calcium and bone metabolism were investigated in 11 children (aged 6 months to 13 years) who were treated with dexamethasone, prednisolone and depot-ACTH because of different disorders. Alkaline phosphatase activity and osteocalcin in serum, representing indices of osteoblastic bone synthesis, and urinary hydroxyproline in(More)
