Upon cytokine treatment, members of the signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT) family of proteins are phosphorylated on tyrosine and serine sites within the carboxyl-terminal region in cells. We show that in response to cytokine treatment, Stat3 is also acetylated on a single lysine residue, Lys685. Histone acetyltransferase p300-mediated(More)
Ankyrin repeat and SOCS box (ASB) family members have a C-terminal SOCS box and an N-terminal ankyrin-related sequence of variable repeats belonging to the SOCS superfamily. While SH2-domain-bearing SOCS proteins are mainly involved in the negative feedback regulation of the protein tyrosine kinase-STAT pathway in response to a variety of cytokines, the(More)
Cytokine-activated receptors initiate intracellular signaling by recruiting protein kinases that phosphorylate the receptors on tyrosine residues, thus enabling docking of SH2 domain-bearing activating factors. Here we report that in response to type 1 interferon (IFNalpha), IFNalpha receptors recruit cytoplasmic CREB-binding protein (CBP). By binding to(More)
The receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) RET, MET, and RON all carry the Met(p+1loop)-->Thr point mutation (i.e., 2B mutation), leading to the formation of tumors with high metastatic potential. Utilizing a novel antibody array, we identified constitutive phosphorylation of STAT3 in cells expressing the 2B mutation but not wild-type RET. MET or RON with the 2B(More)
Previously, we demonstrated that antibodies printed on a solid support were able to detect protein-protein interaction in mammalian cells. Here we further developed the antibody array system for detecting proteins with various post-translational modifications in mammalian cells. In this novel approach, immunoprecipitated proteins were labeled with(More)
Stat3 and its isoforms belong to a family of cytoplasmic transcription factors that affect the synthesis of various proteins. Caspases are cysteinyl-aspartate proteases that function under apoptotic and non-apoptotic conditions. We now report that, in addition to transcriptional splicing, Stat3 fragmentation can be mediated by caspases. Caspase activation(More)
In TNF-treated cells, TNFR1, TNFR-associated death domain protein (TRADD), Fas-associated death domain protein, and receptor-interacting protein kinase proteins form the signaling complex via modular interaction within their C-terminal death domains. In this paper, we report that the death domain SXXE/D motifs (i.e., S381DHE motif of TNFR1-death domain as(More)
Mechanical stress plays an essential role in tissue development and remodeling. In this study, we determined the role of microRNA in chondrocyte mechanotransduction. Using microarray, we identified miR-365 as a mechanoresponsive microRNA in parallel to mechanical induction of Indian hedgehog (Ihh) in primary chicken chondrocytes cultured in 3-dimensional(More)
CONTEXT Neutrophils are the primary effector cells in the pathogenesis of transfusion-related acute lung injury or multiple organ failure after blood transfusion. OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate the effect of fresh (1 day preparation) and aged (42 day preparation) PRBC-derived plasma on neutrophil morphology, migration and phagocytosis. MATERIALS AND(More)
