Regulated exocytosis in neurons and neuroendocrine cells requires the formation of a stable soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attachment protein receptor (SNARE) complex consisting of synaptobrevin-2/vesicle-associated membrane protein 2, synaptosome-associated protein of 25 kDa (SNAP-25), and syntaxin 1. This complex is subsequently disassembled by(More)
CX3CL1 (fractalkine) and CXCL16 are unique members of the chemokine family because they occur not only as soluble, but also as membrane-bound molecules. Expressed as type I transmembrane proteins, the ectodomain of both chemokines can be proteolytically cleaved from the cell surface, a process known as shedding. Our previous studies showed that the(More)
Retrograde traffic between the Golgi apparatus and the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is largely mediated by COPI-coated transport vesicles. In mammalian cells, retrograde traffic can pass through an intermediate compartment. Here, we report that the mammalian soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor (NSF) attachment receptor (SNARE) proteins mSec22b,(More)
Cajal bodies are nuclear structures that are involved in biogenesis of snRNPs and snoRNPs, maintenance of telomeres and processing of histone mRNA. Recently, the SUMO isopeptidase USPL1 was identified as a component of Cajal bodies that is essential for cellular growth and Cajal body integrity. However, a cellular function for USPL1 is so far unknown. Here,(More)
This report encompasses a representative survey of the German feminine population. The aim of this survey is to assess subjective gynaecological complaints. These were registered by the newly constructed "Giessen Subjective Complaints List - for women". This questionnaire measures specific gynaecological complaints of several body areas (excretion, pelvic(More)
