We endeavored to identify proteins interacting with KLGFFKR, a highly conserved motif in the cytoplasmic domain adjacent to the transmembrane domain of the alpha subunit of integrins. We found that affinity chromatography of cell extracts with this peptide followed by elution with EDTA resulted in the isolation of a 60-kDa protein (p60). The N-terminal amino acid sequence of this 60-kDa polypeptide was found to be highly homologous to the Ro/SS-A antigen, a 60-kDa protein homologous to… CONTINUE READING
