The ubiquitin-proteasome pathway has been implicated in the degradation of newly synthesized, misfolded and unassembled proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Using a cell-free reticulocyte lysate system we have examined the relationship between biosynthesis and ER-associated degradation of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator(More)
Promoter elements accounting for HER2 (c-erbB-2/neu) overexpression were searched for in several human breast cancer cell lines (MDA-453, BT-474, ZR-75-1, MCF-7) known to express constitutively a 30-fold range in HER2 transcripts per gene copy. HER2 overexpressing cells showed a single prominent DNase I hypersensitive site near a conserved and hitherto(More)
Abnormal folding of mutant cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) and subsequent degradation in the endoplasmic reticulum is the basis for most cases of cystic fibrosis. Structural differences between wild-type (WT) and mutant proteins, however, remain unknown. Here we examine the intracellular trafficking, degradation, and transmembrane(More)
Transmembrane topology of most eukaryotic polytopic proteins is established cotranslationally at the endoplasmic reticulum membrane through the action of alternating signal and stop transfer sequences. Here we demonstrate that the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) achieves its N terminus topology through a variation of this(More)
Studies of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection have shown that many known and unknown cellular molecules involved in viral proliferation are up-regulated following HSV-1 infection. In this study, using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, we found that the expression of the HSV-1 infection response repressive protein (HIRRP, GI(More)
