Exosomes are secreted organelles that have the same topology as the cell and bud outward (outward is defined as away from the cytoplasm) from endosome membranes or endosome-like domains of plasma membrane. Here we describe an exosomal protein-sorting pathway in Jurkat T cells that selects cargo proteins on the basis of both higher-order oligomerization (the(More)
Animal cells bud exosomes and microvesicles (EMVs) from endosome and plasma membranes. The combination of higher-order oligomerization and plasma membrane binding is a positive budding signal that targets diverse proteins into EMVs and retrovirus particles. Here we describe an inhibitory budding signal (IBS) from the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) Gag(More)
The prevailing hypothesis of HIV budding posits that the viral Gag protein drives budding, and that the Gag p6 peptide plays an essential role by recruiting host-cell budding factors to sites of HIV assembly. HIV also expresses a second Gag protein, p160 Gag-Pol, which lacks p6 and fails to bud from cells, consistent with the prevailing hypothesis of HIV(More)
Integrin, beta-like 1 (ITGBL1), is a β-integrin-related extracellular matrix protein which contains ten EGF-like repeats domain. Surprisingly, we screen Oncomine Database and found that ITGBL1 is more commonly downregulated in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tissues, and the result reminds us to explore its significance in NSCLC. Thus, we retrieved(More)
In the title mononuclear Cu(I) complex, [Cu(C(18)H(15)P)(C(41)H(39)P(3))]BF(4), the cation has a basic rigid core structure reminiscent of the framework of diamond. The metal atom is coordinated by four P atoms in a distorted tetra-hedral geometry, the distortion arising from the steric hindrance of the phenyl groups. The anion is disordered over two(More)
The title dinuclear copper(I) complex, {[Cu(2)(C(2)H(3)N)(C(12)H(10)N(2))(C(25)H(22)P(2))(2)](BF(4))(2)}(n), contains 1,2-di-4-pyridyl-ethene, bis-(diphenyl-phosphino)methane and acetonitrile ligands. The two Cu atoms, one with an N(2)P(2) ligand set and the other with an NP(2) ligand set, are bridged by two bis-(diphenyl-phosphino)methane ligands, forming(More)
