Human PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10; a phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphatase) expressed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae was oxidized in a time- and H(2)O(2)-concentration-dependent manner. Oxidized hPTEN was reduced by cellular reductants as in human cells. The reduction rate of oxidized hPTEN was monitored in S. cerevisiae mutants(More)
Higher plants, protists and fungi possess cyanide-resistant respiratory pathway, which is mediated by alternative oxidase (AOX). The activity of AOX has been found to be dependent on several regulatory mechanisms including gene expression and posttranslational regulation. In the present study, we report that the presence of cyanide in culture medium(More)
Phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN) expressed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae was reversibly oxidized by hydrogen peroxide and reduced by cellular reductants. Reduction of hPTEN was delayed in each of S. cerevisiae gsh1Delta and gsh2Delta mutants. Expression of gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase Gsh1 in the gsh1Delta mutant rescued(More)
Recent studies have revealed that in higher eukaryotes, several ribosomal proteins are involved in some pathological events or developmental defects, indicating that ribosomal proteins perform unconventional functions other than protein biosynthesis. To obtain an insight into the novel roles of ribosomal proteins, we aimed to analyze the changes in proteome(More)
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest family of cell-surface receptors and are involved in a variety of pathological conditions including cancer and cardiovascular, metabolic, neurological, and autoimmune diseases. GPCRs are being intensively investigated as targets for therapeutic intervention, and the β-arrestin recruitment assay has become(More)
The need for efficient high-throughput gene delivery system for mammalian cells is rapidly increasing with the growing request for functional genomics studies and drug discoveries in various physiologically relevant systems. However, plasmid-based gene delivery has limitations in transfection efficiency and available cell types. Viral vectors have great(More)
