Transcutaneous immunization with bacterial ADP-ribosylating exotoxins as antigens and adjuvants. (1/1266)

Transcutaneous immunization (TCI) is a new technique that uses the application of vaccine antigens in a solution on the skin to induce potent antibody responses without systemic or local toxicity. We have previously shown that cholera toxin (CT), a potent adjuvant for oral and nasal immunization, can induce both serum and mucosal immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgA and protect against toxin-mediated mucosal disease when administered by the transcutaneous route. Additionally, CT acts as an adjuvant for coadministered antigens such as tetanus and diphtheria toxoids when applied to the skin. CT, a member of the bacterial ADP-ribosylating exotoxin (bARE) family, is most potent as an adjuvant when the A-B subunits are present and functional. We now show that TCI induces secondary antibody responses to coadministered antigens as well as to CT in response to boosting immunizations. IgG antibodies to coadministered antigens were also found in the stools and lung washes of immunized mice, suggesting that TCI may target mucosal pathogens. Mice immunized by the transcutaneous route with tetanus fragment C and CT developed anti-tetanus toxoid antibodies and were protected against systemic tetanus toxin challenge. We also show that bAREs, similarly organized as A-B subunits, as well as the B subunit of CT alone, induced antibody responses to themselves when given via TCI. Thus, TCI appears to induce potent, protective immune responses to both systemic and mucosal challenge and offers significant potential practical advantages for vaccine delivery.  (+info)

Pseudomonas aeruginosa exoenzyme S is a biglutamic acid ADP-ribosyltransferase. (2/1266)

Kinetic analysis of two mutations within Pseudomonas aeruginosa exoenzyme S (ExoS) showed that a E379D mutation inhibited expression of ADP-ribosyltransferase activity but had little effect on the expression of NAD glycohydrolase activity while a E381D mutation inhibited expression of both activities. These data identify ExoS as a biglutamic acid ADP-ribosyltransferase, where E381 is the catalytic residue and E379 contributes to the transfer of ADP-ribose to the target protein.  (+info)

Correlation of activity regulation and substrate recognition of the ADP-ribosyltransferase that regulates nitrogenase activity in Rhodospirillum rubrum. (3/1266)

In Rhodospirillum rubrum, nitrogenase activity is regulated posttranslationally through the ADP-ribosylation of dinitrogenase reductase by dinitrogenase reductase ADP-ribosyltransferase (DRAT). Several DRAT variants that are altered both in the posttranslational regulation of DRAT activity and in the ability to recognize variants of dinitrogenase reductase have been found. This correlation suggests that these two properties are biochemically connected.  (+info)

Lymphocyte migration through brain endothelial cell monolayers involves signaling through endothelial ICAM-1 via a rho-dependent pathway. (4/1266)

Lymphocyte extravasation into the brain is mediated largely by the Ig superfamily molecule ICAM-1. Several lines of evidence indicate that at the tight vascular barriers of the central nervous system (CNS), endothelial cell (EC) ICAM-1 not only acts as a docking molecule for circulating lymphocytes, but is also involved in transducing signals to the EC. In this paper, we examine the signaling pathways in brain EC following Ab ligation of endothelial ICAM-1, which mimics adhesion of lymphocytes to CNS endothelia. ICAM-1 cross-linking results in a reorganization of the endothelial actin cytoskeleton to form stress fibers and activation of the small guanosine triphosphate (GTP)-binding protein Rho. ICAM-1-stimulated tyrosine phosphorylation of the actin-associated molecule cortactin and ICAM-1-mediated, Ag/IL-2-stimulated T lymphocyte migration through EC monolayers were inhibited following pretreatment of EC with cytochalasin D. Pretreatment of EC with C3 transferase, a specific inhibitor of Rho proteins, significantly inhibited the transmonolayer migration of T lymphocytes, endothelial Rho-GTP loading, and endothelial actin reorganization, without affecting either lymphocyte adhesion to EC or cortactin phosphorylation. These data show that brain vascular EC are actively involved in facilitating T lymphocyte migration through the tight blood-brain barrier of the CNS and that this process involves ICAM-1-stimulated rearrangement of the endothelial actin cytoskeleton and functional EC Rho proteins.  (+info)

Pseudomonas aeruginosa exoenzyme S, a double ADP-ribosyltransferase, resembles vertebrate mono-ADP-ribosyltransferases. (5/1266)

Previous data indicated that Pseudomonas aeruginosa exoenzyme S (ExoS) ADP-ribosylated Ras at multiple sites. One site appeared to be Arg41, but the second site could not be localized. In this study, the sites of ADP-ribosylation of c-Ha-Ras by ExoS were directly determined. Under saturating conditions, ExoS ADP-ribosylated Ras to a stoichiometry of 2 mol of ADP-ribose incorporated per mol of Ras. Nucleotide occupancy did not influence the stoichiometry or velocity of ADP-ribosylation of Ras by ExoS. Edman degradation and mass spectrometry of V8 protease generated peptides of ADP-ribosylated Ras identified the sites of ADP-ribosylation to be Arg41 and Arg128. ExoS ADP-ribosylated the double mutant, RasR41K,R128K, to a stoichiometry of 1 mol of ADP-ribose incorporated per mol of Ras, which indicated that Ras possessed an alternative site of ADP-ribosylation. The alternative site of ADP-ribosylation on Ras was identified as Arg135, which was on the same alpha-helix as Arg128. Arg41 and Arg128 are located within two different secondary structure motifs, beta-sheet and alpha-helix, respectively, and are spatially separated within the three-dimensional structure of Ras. The fact that ExoS could ADP-ribosylate a target protein at multiple sites, along with earlier observations that ExoS could ADP-ribosylate numerous target proteins, were properties that have been attributed to several vertebrate ADP-ribosyltransferases. This prompted a detailed alignment study which showed that the catalytic domain of ExoS possessed considerably more primary amino acid homology with the vertebrate mono-ADP-ribosyltransferases than the bacterial ADP-ribosyltransferases. These data are consistent with the hypothesis that ExoS may represent an evolutionary link between bacterial and vertebrate mono-ADP-ribosyltransferases.  (+info)

Chemotaxin-dependent translocation of immunoreactive ADP-ribosyltransferase-1 to the surface of human neutrophil polymorphs. (6/1266)

mRNA from human polymorphonuclear neutrophil leucocytes (PMNs) was probed with cDNA encoding human skeletal muscle arginine-specific ADP-ribosyltransferase (ART1). A single 2.6-kb transcript was identified, which was similar in size to that observed in human skeletal muscle RNA. An 872-bp cDNA fragment, corresponding to the amino acid sequence of the processed human skeletal muscle enzyme, was generated by reverse transcription-PCR amplification of RNA from human PMNs, and was found to be identical to the ART1 cDNA derived from human skeletal muscle. ART1 was expressed as a fusion protein with glutathione S-transferase (GST) in insect cells, and antibodies were raised against the fusion protein in a rabbit. Following removal of GST immunoreactivity by immunoprecipitation, these antibodies were used to measure the abundance of immunoreactive ART1 on the surface of PMNs. Exposure of PMNs to formyl-Met-Leu-Phe (FMLP) was followed by a rapid increase in the abundance of cell surface ART1 (T1/2 = 1.9 min), and the concentration of FMLP for half-maximum response was 28.6 nM. Similar responses were observed after exposure of the cells to platelet-activating factor or interleukin-8, and we conclude that some of the effects of these chemotaxins are mediated by translocation of an intracellular pool of ART1 to its site of catalytic activity on the outer aspect of the plasma membrane.  (+info)

Evidence for a structural motif in toxins and interleukin-2 that may be responsible for binding to endothelial cells and initiating vascular leak syndrome. (7/1266)

The dose-limiting toxicity of interleukin-2 (IL-2) and immunotoxin (IT) therapy in humans is vascular leak syndrome (VLS). VLS has a complex etiology involving damage to vascular endothelial cells (ECs), extravasation of fluids and proteins, interstitial edema, and organ failure. IL-2 and ITs prepared with the catalytic A chain of the plant toxin, ricin (RTA), and other toxins, damage human ECs in vitro and in vivo. Damage to ECs may initiate VLS; if this damage could be avoided without losing the efficacy of ITs or IL-2, larger doses could be administered. In this paper, we provide evidence that a three amino acid sequence motif, (x)D(y), in toxins and IL-2 damages ECs. Thus, when peptides from RTA or IL-2 containing this sequence motif are coupled to mouse IgG, they bind to and damage ECs both in vitro and, in the case of RTA, in vivo. In contrast, the same peptides with a deleted or mutated sequence do not. Furthermore, the peptide from RTA attached to mouse IgG can block the binding of intact RTA to ECs in vitro and vice versa. In addition, RTA, a fragment of Pseudomonas exotoxin A (PE38-lys), and fibronectin also block the binding of the mouse IgG-RTA peptide to ECs, suggesting that an (x)D(y) motif is exposed on all three molecules. Our results suggest that deletions or mutations in this sequence or the use of nondamaging blocking peptides may increase the therapeutic index of both IL-2, as well as ITs prepared with a variety of plant or bacterial toxins.  (+info)

Heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor interacts with mouse blastocysts independently of ErbB1: a possible role for heparan sulfate proteoglycans and ErbB4 in blastocyst implantation. (8/1266)

Blastocyst implantation requires molecular and cellular interactions between the uterine luminal epithelium and blastocyst trophectoderm. We have previously shown that heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor (HB-EGF) is induced in the mouse luminal epithelium solely at the site of blastocyst apposition at 16:00 hours on day 4 of pregnancy prior to the attachment reaction (22:00-23:00 hours), and that HB-EGF promotes blastocyst growth, zona-hatching and trophoblast outgrowth. To delineate which EGF receptors participate in blastocyst activation, the toxicity of chimeric toxins composed of HB-EGF or TGF-(&agr;) coupled to Pseudomonas exotoxin (PE) were used as measures of receptor expression. TGF-(&agr;) or HB-EGF binds to EGF-receptor (ErbB1), while HB-EGF, in addition, binds to ErbB4. The results indicate that ErbB1 is inefficient in mediating TGF-(&agr;)-PE or HB-EGF-PE toxicity as follows: (i) TGF-(&agr;)-PE was relatively inferior in killing blastocysts, 100-fold less than HB-EGF-PE, (ii) analysis of blastocysts isolated from cross-bred egfr+/- mice demonstrated that HB-EGF-PE, but not TGF-(&agr;)-PE, killed egfr-/- blastocysts, and (iii) blastocysts that survived TGF-(&agr;)-PE were nevertheless killed by HB-EGF-PE. HB-EGF-PE toxicity was partially mediated by cell surface heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPG), since a peptide corresponding to the heparin-binding domain of HB-EGF as well as heparitinase treatment protected the blastocysts from the toxic effects of HB-EGF-PE by about 40%. ErbB4 is a candidate for being an HB-EGF-responsive receptor since RT-PCR analysis demonstrated that day 4 mouse blastocysts express two different erbB4 isoforms and immunostaining with anti-ErbB4 antibodies confirmed that ErbB4 protein is expressed at the apical surface of the trophectoderm cells. It is concluded that (i) HB-EGF interacts with the blastocyst cell surface via high-affinity receptors other than ErbB1, (ii) the HB-EGF interaction with high-affinity blastocysts receptors is regulated by heparan sulfate, and (iii) ErbB4 is a candidate for being a high-affinity receptor for HB-EGF on the surface of implantation-competent blastocysts.  (+info)

Mono-ADP-ribosyltransferase that mediates mono-ADP-ribosylation of target proteins (By similarity). Plays a role in nuclear envelope stability and nuclear remodeling during spermiogenesis (PubMed:25673562).
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram-negative opportunistic pathogen in patients with neutropenia, cystic fibrosis, and burn wounds (1, 15, 19, 21). The prevalence of multidrug-resistant strains complicates the control ofP. aeruginosa (3), which has prompted studies to define the molecular basis for its pathogenesis. P. aeruginosa possesses an array of virulence factors, which makes it a successful opportunistic pathogen (6), including the ADP-ribosyltransferases, exotoxin A, and exoenzyme S.. Exoenzyme S was identified by Iglewski and coworkers as an ADP-ribosyltransferase of P. aeruginosa (8). Cloning the two forms of exoenzyme S showed that the 53-kDa form of exoenzyme S (now termed exoenzyme T [ExoT]) and the 49-kDa form of exoenzyme S (now termed exoenzyme S [ExoS]) were encoded by separate genes that were located on the P. aeruginosa chromosome (10, 22). While alignment of their primary amino acid sequences showed that ExoS and ExoT possess 76% homology (22), the specific activity of ExoT in ...

Clostridium botulinum C3 exoenzyme inactivates the small GTP-binding protein family Rho by ADP-ribosylating asparagine 41, which depolymerizes the actin cytoskeleton. C3 thus represents a major family of the bacterial toxins that transfer the ADP-ribose moiety of NAD to specific amino acids in acceptor proteins to modify key biological activities in eukaryotic cells, including protein synthesis, differentiation, transformation, and intracellular signaling. The 1.7 A resolution C3 exoenzyme structure establishes the conserved features of the core NAD-binding beta-sandwich fold with other ADP-ribosylating toxins despite little sequence conservation. Importantly, the central core of the C3 exoenzyme structure is distinguished by the absence of an active site loop observed in many other ADP-ribosylating toxins. Unlike the ADP-ribosylating toxins that possess the active site loop near the central core, the C3 exoenzyme replaces the active site loop with an alpha-helix, alpha3. Moreover, structural ...
14-3-3 proteins belong to a family of conserved molecules, which play a regulatory role and participate in signal transduction and checkpoint control pathways. 14-3-3 proteins bind phosphoserine-phosphorylated ligands, such as the Raf-1 kinase and Bad, through recognition of the phosphorylated consensus motif, RSXpSXP (where pS is phosphoserine). Recently, a phosphorylation-independent interaction has been reported to occur between 14-3-3 and a small number of proteins, for example the 43 kDa inositol polyphosphate 5-phosphatase, glycoprotein Ib, p75NTR-associated cell-death executor (NADE) and the bacterial ADP-ribosyltransferase toxin exoenzyme S (ExoS). It has been suggested that specific residues of 14-3-3 proteins are required for activation of the bacterial toxin ExoS. An unphosphorylated peptide derived from a phage display library, known as the R18 peptide, and a synthetic peptide derived from ExoS inhibit the interaction between ExoS and 14-3-3. In this report we identify the amino acid ...
Ecto-ADP-ribosyltransferase 4 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the ART4 gene. ART4 has also been designated as CD297 (cluster of differentiation 297). This gene encodes a protein that contains a mono-ADP-ribosylation (ART) motif. It is a member of the ADP-ribosyltransferase gene family but enzymatic activity has not been demonstrated experimentally. Antigens of the Dombrock blood group system are located on the gene product, which is glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored to the erythrocyte membrane. Allelic variants, some of which lead to adverse transfusion reactions, are known. Several antigens have been recognised in this family.

Populärvetenskaplig sammanfattning. Små molekyler för att identifiera proteiners funktion. Vår arvsmassa innehåller cirka 24000 gener som i sin tur innehåller information för hur de tusentals proteiner vi är uppbyggda av ska framställas.

Pseudomonas are a common cause of hospital-acquired infections that may be lethal. ADP-ribosyltransferase activities of Pseudomonas exotoxin-S and -T depend on 14-3-3 proteins inside the host cell. By binding in the 14-3-3 phosphopeptide binding groove, an amphipathic C-terminal helix of ExoS and ExoT has been thought to be crucial for their activation. However, crystal structures of the 14-3-3 beta: ExoS and -ExoT complexes presented here reveal an extensive hydrophobic interface that is sufficient for complex formation and toxin activation. We show that C-terminally truncated ExoS ADP-ribosyltransferase domain lacking the amphipathic binding motif is active when co-expressed with 14-3-3. Moreover, swapping the amphipathic C-terminus with a fragment from Vibrio Vis toxin creates a 14-3-3 independent toxin that ADP-ribosylates known ExoS targets. Finally, we show that 14-3-3 stabilizes ExoS against thermal aggregation. Together, this indicates that 14-3-3 proteins activate exotoxin ...

PARP catalysed ADP-ribosylation is a post-translational modification involved in several physiological and pathological processes, including cellular stress. In order to visualise both Poly-, and Mono-, ADP-ribosylation in vivo, we engineered specific fluorescent probes. Using them, we show that amino-acid starvation triggers an unprecedented display of mono-ADP-ribosylation that governs the formation ... read more of Sec body, a recently identified stress assembly that forms in Drosophila cells. We show that dPARP16 catalytic activity is necessary and sufficient for both amino-acid starvation induced mono-ADP-ribosylation and subsequent Sec body formation and cell survival. Importantly, dPARP16 catalyses the modification of Sec16, a key Sec body component, and we show that it is a critical event for the formation of this stress assembly. Taken together our findings establish a novel example for the role of mono-ADP-ribosylation in the formation of stress assemblies, and link this modification ...
The extent of the transfer of the adenosine 5-diphosphate ribose (ADPR) moiety of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide onto elongation factor 2 (EF-2) catalyzed by Pseudomonas aeruginosa exotoxin A (PA-toxin) was dependent upon the presence of a reducing agent, dithiotheritol (DTT). The reaction requires DTT in low concentration (1 to 10 mM) and in the absence of DTT less product, ADPR-EF 2, was formed. PA-toxin was fully activated by treatment with a denaturing agent, sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS), in conjunction with DTT. In the presence of activated toxin, the maximum transfer of ADPR onto EF-2 was observed when EF-2 had been previously reduced with DTT. Denaturation of EF-2 prior to reduction did not produce a further increase in its ability to act as a substrate for PA-toxin ...

This gene encodes a member of the sirtuin family of proteins, homologs to the yeast Sir2 protein. Members of the sirtuin family are characterized by a sirtuin core domain and grouped into four classes. The functions of human sirtuins have not yet been determined; however, yeast sirtuin proteins are known to regulate epigenetic gene silencing and suppress recombination of rDNA. Studies suggest that the human sirtuins may function as intracellular regulatory proteins with mono-ADP-ribosyltransferase activity. The protein encoded by this gene is included in class I of the sirtuin family. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different proteins have been described for this gene.

Some pathogenic spore-forming bacilli employ a binary protein mechanism for intoxicating the intestinal tracts of insects, animals, and humans. These Gram-positive bacteria and their toxins include Clostridium botulinum (C2 toxin), Clostridium difficile (C. difficile toxin or CDT), Clostridium perfringens (ι-toxin and binary enterotoxin, or BEC), Clostridium spiroforme (C. spiroforme toxin or CST), as well as Bacillus cereus (vegetative insecticidal protein or VIP). These gut-acting proteins form an AB complex composed of ADP-ribosyl transferase (A) and cell-binding (B) components that intoxicate cells via receptor-mediated endocytosis and endosomal trafficking. Once inside the cytosol, the A components inhibit normal cell functions by mono-ADP-ribosylation of globular actin, which induces cytoskeletal disarray and death. Important aspects of each bacterium and binary enterotoxin will be highlighted in this review, with particular focus upon the disease process involving the biochemistry and modes of
We herein demonstrated that Tat PTD-mediated protein transduction was successfully applied to intact arterial strips. It was reported earlier that Clostridium botulinum exoenzyme C3 tagged with Tat PTD inhibited the urotensin-induced contraction in the rat aorta.29 In the present study, the introduction of the protein into the cells by Tat PTD was clearly proved by the observation of GFP fluorescence in the TAT-GFP-treated strips, and by immunoblot detection of Tat PTD-tagged MYPT1 fragments in the extract of the strips. The introduction of protein is also supported by the observation that the MYPT1 fragments enhanced the Ca2+-induced contraction only when tagged with Tat PTD. The time needed to obtain a significant enhancement of contraction suggested that the transduction of functional protein into the intact arterial strips takes place within 10 minutes, which is consistent with previous reports.22,23⇓. Treatment with TAT-MYPT11-374 enhanced the Ca2+-induced contraction with no effect on ...

Arginine adenosine-5′-diphosphoribosylation (ADP-ribosylation) is an enzyme-catalyzed potentially reversible posttranslational changes where the ADP-ribose moiety is transferred from NAD+ towards the guanidino CHR2797 moiety of arginine. proteins with binding companions e.g. toxin-catalyzed ADP-ribosylation of actin at R177 blocks actin polymerization sterically. In case there is the nucleotide-gated P2X7 ion route ADP-ribosylation at R125 near the ligand-binding site causes route Rabbit Polyclonal to SF3B3. gating. Arginine-specific ADP-ribosyltransferases (ARTs) bring a quality R-S-EXE theme that distinguishes these enzymes from structurally related enzymes which catalyze ADP-ribosylation of additional amino acid part chains DNA or little substances. Arginine-specific ADP-ribosylation could be inhibited by little molecule arginine analogues such as for example CHR2797 agmatine or meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) which themselves can serve as focuses on for arginine-specific ARTs. ...
Some pathogenic species of Clostridium employ the classic enzymatic AB binary protein toxins for poisoning cells. Clostridium perfringens, C. difficile, C. spiroforme, and C. botulinum all use similar binary toxins (iota toxin (Ia and Ib), CDT (CDTa and CDTb), CST (CSTa and CSTb), and C2 toxin (C2I and C2II), respectively). They consist of the enzymatic A component, an actin-specific ADP-ribosyltransferase and the B component that binds to the host cell and forms a membrane-spanning pore that functions as the translocation channel for each enzymatic component. The B component translocates the A component into the host cell via the membrane in the acidic endosome. In contrast, the Bacillus anthracis species uses a different binary toxin, which consists of two enzymatic proteins: the lethal (LF) and edema (EF) factors, and a protein translocation channel, PA. The PA heptameric pore structure was revealed to have extremely narrow φ-clamp passageway and a long membrane-spanning channel. ...

IL-4 is survival factor for lymphocytes and other hematopoietic cells. Whether there are mechanisms of pro-survival signaling induced by IL-4 apart from PI3K-Akt activation is not fully clear. Our laboratory identified PARP-14, a poly-ADP-ribose polymerase subfamily member, as a Stat6-interacting protein. PARP-14 is highly expressed in lymphoid organs, influences B cell subset ratios as well as the IgA response to antigen, and has intrinsic ADP-ribosyltransferase activity. ADP-ribosyltransferases and PARPs catalyze mono- and poly-ADP-ribosylation, transferring ADP from NAD+ to target proteins. ADP-ribosylation is a post-translational modification used by bacterial exotoxins to impact signal transduction, or, in the case of the mammalian PARP-1, to influence gene transcription and DNA repair or trigger apoptosis. Almost nothing is known about biological roles or mechanisms of action of other mammalian PARPs. We now show that PARP-14 is essential for full survival signaling despite normal Akt ...
Endotoxins are the lipopolysaccharides that are an integral part of the cell membrane of the gram-negative bacteria and become toxin in some conditions. Exotoxins are heat labile, proteinaceous substances or toxoids that are liberated by mostly gram-positive bacteria but sometimes also by gram-negative bacteria into its surrounding. Endotoxins are the associated cell toxins whereas exotoxins are the extracellular diffusible toxins. The molecular weight of endotoxins ranges from 50 to 1000KDa and associated with the lipopolysaccharide complex whereas the molecular weight of the exotoxin is about ten kDa and associated with the protein complex. Endotoxins show stability to heat at about 250°C and do no denature on heating whereas exotoxins are heat labile and get denatured at a minute temperature. Immune reactions get weak when endotoxins attack the cell and have high enzymatic activity but poor antigenicity whereas immune responses get stronger in the case of exotoxins but with no enzymatic ...

The Pseudomonas exotoxin (or exotoxin A) is an exotoxin produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It inhibits elongation factor-2. It does so by ADP-ribosylation of EF2. This then causes the elongation of polypeptides to cease. (The mechanism of the toxin is similar to that of Diphtheria toxin.) It has been investigated as a treatment for hepatitis B and cancer.

A number of mouse and rat cells and their virus-transformed counterparts were tested for sensitivity to Pseudomonas aeruginosa exotoxin A (PEA). In each case, the transformed cells were considerably less sensitive than were the nontransformed cells. In the presence of trifluoperazine, N-(6-aminohexyl)-5-chloro-1-naphthalenesulfonamide, or retinoic acid, the transformed cells became as sensitive as the nontransformed cells, whereas these drugs had little or no effect on the sensitivity to PEA of the nontransformed cells. Temperature-sensitive virus-transformed normal rabbit kidney cells were sensitized to PEA by N-(6-aminohexyl)-5-chloro-1-naphthalenesulfonamide, when these cells were grown as the transformed phenotype, whereas the nontransformed phenotype could not be sensitized. The possibility is discussed that upon malignant transformation a process which is dependent upon calmodulin or protein kinase C strongly decreases the sensitivity of the cells to PEA.. ...

Background: The C3bot1 protein (~23 kDa) from Clostridium botulinum ADP-ribosylates and thereby inactivates Rho. C3bot1 is selectively taken up into the cytosol of monocytes/macrophages but not of other cell types such as epithelial cells or fibroblasts. Most likely, the internalization occurs by a specific endocytotic pathway via acidified endosomes. Methodology/Principal Findings: Here, we tested whether enzymatic inactive C3bot1E174Q serves as a macrophage-selective transport system for delivery of enzymatic active proteins into the cytosol of such cells. Having confirmed that C3bot1E174Q does not induce macrophage activation, we used the actin ADP-ribosylating C2I (~50 kDa) from Clostridium botulinum as a reporter enzyme for C3bot1E174Q-mediated delivery into macrophages. The recombinant C3bot1E174Q-C2I fusion toxin was cloned and expressed as GST-protein in Escherichia coli. Purified C3bot1E174Q-C2I was recognized by antibodies against C2I and C3bot and showed C2I-specific enzyme activity ...
Dr. Onda is focusing on the pre-clinical development of recombinant immunotoxins (RITs) as new immunotherapy reagents. RITs are genetically modified forms of Pseudomonas exotoxin A that are targeted to cancer cells by the Fv portion of antibodies. These RITs are now in clinical trials and have produced many complete remissions in cancer. As a staff scientist, Dr. Onda uses protein engineering to make these proteins more useful in patients by decreasing their immunogenicity so more treatment cycles can be given before antibodies develop in the patients. New RITs were designed by identifying and silencing the major B cell epitopes. These new RITs are being developed for clinical trials.. ...

Seagate is launching their 16 TB CMR (conventional magnetic recording) helium drives today under two product lines - the Exos X for datacenter usage, and the IronWolf / IronWolf Pro for NAS units. The company has been actively shipping the Exos X drives to hyperscale customers, and todays launch is geared more towards the retail market. Similar to the currently available 14TB drives from Seagate, the new 16TB variants also use TDMR (two-dimensional magnetic recording) technology for the heads. The Exos X16 is a 3.5 7200 RPM drive with SED (self-encrypting drive) options. It is currently the leading capacity point available across all HDD vendors, but, not the first 16 TB drive publicly announced - that credit goes to Toshibas MG08 series launched in January 2019. Similar to Toshibas MG08 series, the Seagate 16TB drives also use nine platters to achieve the capacity point.. Seagate claims that the new Exos X16 delivers 33% additional storage per rack compared to the 12 TB variants - thereby ...
