Transmembrane signal transduction via heterotrimeric G proteins is reported to be inhibited by RGS (regulators of G-protein signalling) proteins. These RGS proteins work by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha-subunits (G alpha), thereby driving G proteins into their inactive GDP-bound form. However, it is not known how RGS proteins regulate(More)
Normal rat astroblasts in culture were exposed to 11 sialosyl or cholesterol derivatives at concentrations lower than 20 microM. Synthesized sialosyl cholesterols (alpha- and beta-D-N-acetyl neuraminyl cholesterols) and cholesterol sulfate showed a marked growth inhibitory action. Sialosyl cholesterol uniquely evoked an astroglia-like stellation resembling(More)
