Topics from this paper

Recent advances in live cell imaging of hepatoma cells
TLDR
This review aims to provide an overview of the recent developments in the field of marker proteins (bioluminescence and fluorescent) and methodologies employed as to achieve an improved imaging of biological processes in hepatoma cells. Expand
Analyses and Applications of Metalloprotein Complexes
The Fluorescent Protein Color Palette
Advances in fluorescent protein development over the past 10 years have led to fine‐tuning of the Aequorea victoria jellyfish color palette in the emission color range from blue to yellow, while aExpand
The fusome organizes the microtubule network during oocyte differentiation in Drosophila.
TLDR
The results suggest that the fusome, a specialized membrane-skeletal structure, which arises in early germ cells, plays a crucial role in polarizing 16-cell cysts, at least in part by interacting with microtubules and centrosomes. Expand
Nuclear export of Far1p in response to pheromones requires the export receptor Msn5p/Ste21p.
TLDR
The results suggest that nuclear export of Far1p by Msn5p/Ste21p coordinates the two separable functions of Far2p during mating, similar to Deltamsn5/ste21 strains. Expand
A developmentally regulated kinesin-related motor protein from Dictyostelium discoideum.
TLDR
This work reports the first molecular characterization of kinesin-related proteins (KRPs) in Dictyostelium and finds that K7, expressed in Escherichia coli, supports plus end-directed microtubule motility in vitro at a speed of 0.14 micron/s, indicating that it is a bona fide motor protein. Expand
Essential functions of ezrin in maintenance of cell shape and lamellipodial extension in normal and transformed fibroblasts
TLDR
The increased expression, hyperphosphorylation and subcellular redistribution of ezrin upon fibroblast transformation coupled with its roles in cell shape and motility suggest a critical role for eZrin in oncogenic transformation. Expand
HLA-DO is a negative modulator of HLA-DM-mediated MHC class II peptide loading
TLDR
HLA-DO affects the peptide repertoire that is eventually presented to the immune system by MHC class II molecules, and is a negative modulator of HLA-DM. Expand
Transgenic Xenopus embryos from sperm nuclear transplantations reveal FGF signaling requirements during gastrulation.
TLDR
A simple approach for large-scale transgenesis in Xenopus laevis embryos is developed and used to identify in vivo requirements for FGF signaling during gastrulation and, by contrast, embryos expressing XFD contain well-patterned nervous systems despite a putative role for F GF in neural induction.

Red-Shifted Excitation Mutants of the Green Fluorescent Protein
Using optimized combinatorial mutagenisis techniques and digital imaging Spectroscopy (DIS), we have insulated mutants of the cloned Aequorea victoria green fluorescent protein (GFP)that showExpand
Aequorea green fluorescent protein
TLDR
Expression of the cDNA for Aequorea green fluorescentprotein in E. coli yielded a fused protein with fluorescence excitation and emission spectra virtually identical to those of the native green fluorescent protein, indicating a radiationless energy transfer to the protein. Expand
Evidence for redox forms of the Aequorea green fluorescent protein
TLDR
Highly purified recombinant Aequoreagreen fluorescent protein is able to undergo a reversible oxidation‐reduction reaction in the presence of molecular oxygen, and when reduced with sodium dithionite it becomes completely non‐fluorescent. Expand
Green fluorescent protein as a marker for gene expression.
TLDR
A complementary DNA for the Aequorea victoria green fluorescent protein produces a fluorescent product when expressed in prokaryotic or eukaryotic cells, which can be used to monitor gene expression and protein localization in living organisms. Expand
Implications for bcd mRNA localization from spatial distribution of exu protein in Drosophila oogenesis
TLDR
The fusion protein rescues an exu null allele, restoring full fertility to females, and is expressed and localized in a temporal and spatial pattern similar to native Exu in female germ cells. Expand

TLDR
The availability of two visibly distinct colors should significantly extend the usefulness of GFP in molecular and cell biology by enabling in vivo visualization of differential gene expression and protein localization and measurement of protein association by fluorescence resonance energy transfer. Expand
Primary structure of the Aequorea victoria green-fluorescent protein.
TLDR
The cloning and sequencing of both cDNA and genomic clones of GFP from the cnidarian, Aequorea victoria, show three different restriction enzyme patterns which suggests that at least three different genes are present in the A. victoria population. Expand
The fluorescence of the chromophore of the green fluorescent protein of Aequorea and Renilla
A possible explanation for the lack of fluorescence in the isolated chromophore of the green fluorescent protein found in bioluminescent coelenterates has been provided by the synthesis of modelExpand

TLDR
The high efficiency, approximately equal to 10-fold greater than that observed using current methods without enrichment procedures, is obtained by using a DNA template containing several uracil residues in place of thymine, which is applied to mutations introduced via both oligonucleotides and error-prone polymerization.

SPECTRAL PERTURBATIONS OF THE AEQUOREA GREEN‐FLUORESCENT PROTEIN
Abstract— In the jellyfish Aequorea, the green‐fluorescent protein (GFP) functions as the in vivo bio‐luminescence emitter via energy transfer from the photoprotein aequorin. Accumulated evidence hasExpand
