Binding of different regulatory subunits and methylation of the catalytic (C) subunit carboxy-terminal leucine 309 are two important mechanisms by which protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) can be regulated. In this study, both genetic and biochemical approaches were used to investigate regulation of regulatory subunit binding by C subunit methylation. Monoclonal(More)
Carboxymethylation of proteins is a highly conserved means of regulation in eukaryotic cells. The protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) catalytic (C) subunit is reversibly methylated at its carboxyl terminus by specific methyltransferase and methylesterase enzymes which have been purified, but not cloned. Carboxymethylation affects PP2A activity and varies during(More)
The chemopreventive effects of Bowman-Birk protease inhibitor (BBI), a soybean polypeptide, and its palmitic acid conjugate, Pal-BBI, on 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA)-induced transformation were investigated by using an in vitro whole organ culture system of mouse mammary glands. The transformation incidence was measured as the number of glands(More)
Our aim was to explore the potential mechanism underlying albino in Takifugu obscurus. The transcriptome sequencing of the skin samples from normal T. obscurus and albino ones was conducted in this paper. The differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in albino fish compared with controls were assayed. The gene ontology (GO) and Kyoto encyclopedia of genes and(More)
Objective: To investigate whether hypoxia-inducible factor-2α (HIF-2α) affects the biological behaviors of hepatoma cells through regulating stearoyl-CoA desaturase-1 (SCD1) in a hypoxic environment. Methods: HepG2 and SMMC-7721 cells were exposed to 1% O2 to establish the hypoxic models. After hepatoma cells were stimulated by hypoxia for 0, 3, 6, 12, and(More)
A cytostatic factor (CF) with a molecular mass of 50 kDa was purified to more than 16,000-fold from the conditioned medium of LPS-treated mouse myelomonocytic leukemia (WEHI-3) cell cultures. The activity of CF was completely destroyed by heating at 70 degrees C for 10 min, 50 degrees C for 30 min, or by the treatment in pH 3 buffer for 2 h. CF showed a(More)
