Axin is a negative regulator of the canonical Wnt signalling pathway that mediates the phosphorylation of beta-catenin by glycogen synthase kinase 3beta. The DIX domain of rat axin, which is important for its homooligomerization and interactions with other regulators in the Wnt pathway, was purified and crystallized by the sitting-drop vapour-diffusion(More)
Complicated pH-properties of the tetraheme cytochrome c3 (cyt c3) from Desulfovibrio vulgaris Miyazaki F (DvMF) were examined by the pH titrations of 1H-15N HSQC spectra in the ferric and ferrous states. The redox-linked pKa shift for the propionate group at C13 of heme 1 was observed as the changes of the NH signals around it. This pKa shift is consistent(More)
Tyrosine 43 is positioned parallel to the fifth heme axial ligand, His34, of heme 1 in the tetraheme cytochrome c(3). The replacement of tyrosine with leucine increased the redox potential of heme 1 by 44 and 35 mV at the first and last reduction steps, respectively; its effects on the other hemes are small. In contrast, the Y43F mutation hardly changed the(More)
The implementation of efficient technologies for the production of recombinant mammalian membrane receptors is an outstanding challenge in understanding receptor-ligand actions and the development of therapeutic antibodies. In order to improve the solubility of recombinant extracellular domains of human membrane receptors expressed in Escherichia coli,(More)
