We present a detailed comparative analysis of the PDZ domains of the human LAP proteins Erbin, Densin-180, and Scribble and the MAGUK ZO-1. Phage-displayed peptide libraries and in vitro affinity assays were used to define ligand binding profiles for each domain. The analysis reveals the importance of interactions with all four C-terminal residues of the(More)
The LAP (leucine-rich repeat and PDZ-containing) family of proteins play a role in maintaining epithelial and neuronal cell size, and mutation of these proteins can have oncogenic consequences. The LAP protein Erbin has been implicated previously in a number of cellular activities by virtue of its PDZ domain-dependent association with the C termini of both(More)
Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is a low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-like lipoprotein particle recently described as a risk factor for premature coronary heart disease, stroke, and atherosclerosis. Structurally, Lp(a) is similar to LDL in that it has comparable lipid composition and contains apolipoprotein B-100 (apo B-100). In addition, Lp(a) contains the(More)
