Cell surface proteins that bind lipoproteins with high affinity. Lipoprotein receptors in the liver and peripheral tissues mediate the regulation of plasma and cellular cholesterol metabolism and concentration. The receptors generally recognize the apolipoproteins of the lipoprotein complex, and binding is often a trigger for endocytosis.
A class of lipoproteins of small size (4-13 nm) and dense (greater than 1.063 g/ml) particles. HDL lipoproteins, synthesized in the liver without a lipid core, accumulate cholesterol esters from peripheral tissues and transport them to the liver for re-utilization or elimination from the body (the reverse cholesterol transport). Their major protein component is APOLIPOPROTEIN A-I. HDL also shuttle APOLIPOPROTEINS C and APOLIPOPROTEINS E to and from triglyceride-rich lipoproteins during their catabolism. HDL plasma level has been inversely correlated with the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

The surface monolayer consists mostly of PHOSPHOLIPIDS, a single copy of APOLIPOPROTEIN B-100, and free cholesterol molecules. The main LDL function is to transport cholesterol and cholesterol esters to extrahepatic tissues.
Lipid-protein complexes involved in the transportation and metabolism of lipids in the body. They are spherical particles consisting of a hydrophobic core of TRIGLYCERIDES and CHOLESTEROL ESTERS surrounded by a layer of hydrophilic free CHOLESTEROL; PHOSPHOLIPIDS; and APOLIPOPROTEINS. Lipoproteins are classified by their varying buoyant density and sizes.
Receptors on the plasma membrane of nonhepatic cells that specifically bind LDL. The receptors are localized in specialized regions called coated pits. Hypercholesteremia is caused by an allelic genetic defect of three types: 1, receptors do not bind to LDL; 2, there is reduced binding of LDL; and 3, there is normal binding but no internalization of LDL. In consequence, entry of cholesterol esters into the cell is impaired and the intracellular feedback by cholesterol on 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl CoA reductase is lacking.

L-Asparagine synthetase in serum as a marker for neoplasia. (1/128)

L-Asparagine synthetase appears in serum approximately 7 days after the s.c. implantation of 1 X 10(5) cells of Leukemia 5178Y/AR (resistant to L-asparaginase) and increases in activity as the neoplasm grows and metastasizes. The principal source of the enzyme is the primary tumor. After intravranial inoculation of tumor, the rate of leakage of the enzyme is more pronounced than when the subcutaneous, intramuscular, or intraperitoneal routes are used. 1-(2-Chloroethyl)-3-cyclohexyl-1-nitrosourea (NSC 79037), a nitro-sourea effective in the palliation of L5178Y/AR, temporarily halts the influx of enzyme into the blood stream, as does surgical excision of the s.c. tumor nodules. Treatment of mice with L-asparaginase within 24 hr of inoculation of the tumor markedly augments both tumor growth and the rate of penetration of L-asparagine synthetase into the circulation. Several other L-asparagine synthetase into the circulation. Several other L-asparaginase-resistant tumors also were found to spill L-asparagine synthetase into the serum, but the correlation between this phenomenon and the specific activity of the enzyme in homogenates of the tumor was imperfect.  (+info)

Transcriptional regulation of the human asparagine synthetase gene by carbohydrate availability. (2/128)

Transcription of the asparagine synthetase (AS) gene is induced by amino acid deprivation. The present data illustrate that this gene is also under transcriptional control by carbohydrate availability. Incubation of human HepG2 hepatoma cells in glucose-free medium resulted in an increased AS mRNA content, reaching a maximum of about 14-fold over control cells after approx. 12 h. Extracellular glucose caused the repression of the content of AS mRNA in a concentration-dependent manner, with a k1/2 (concentration causing a half-maximal repression) of 1 mM. Fructose, galactose, mannose, 2-deoxyglucose and xylitol were found to maintain the mRNA content of both AS and the glucose-regulated protein GRP78 in a state of repression, whereas 3-O-methylglucose did not. Incubation in either histidine-free or glucose-free medium also resulted in adaptive regulation of the AS gene in BNL-CL.2 mouse hepatocytes, rat C6 glioma cells and human MOLT4 lymphocytes, in addition to HepG2 cells. In contrast, the steady-state mRNA content of GRP78 was unaffected by amino acid availability. Transient transfection assays using a reporter gene construct documented that glucose deprivation increases AS gene transcription via elements within the proximal 3 kbp of the AS promoter. These results illustrate that human AS gene transcription is induced following glucose limitation of the cells.  (+info)

RT-PCR cloning, characterization and mRNA expression analysis of a cDNA encoding a type II asparagine synthetase in common bean. (3/128)

Following a RT-PCR strategy based on the design of degenerate oligonucleotides resembling conserved domains of asparagine synthetase (AS; EC 6.3.5.4), we isolated a 2 kb cDNA clone (PVAS2) from root tissue of the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). PVAS2 encodes a protein of 584 amino acids with a predicted relative molecular mass of 65810 Da, an isoelectric point of 6.4, and a net charge of -7.2 at pH 7.0. The amino acid sequence of the protein encoded by PVAS2 is very similar to that encoded by the soybean SAS2 asparagine synthetase gene. The amino-terminal residues of the predicted PVAS2 protein are identical to the amino acids that constitute the glutamine-binding (GAT) domain of AS from other plant species, which suggests that the PVAS2 cDNA encodes a type II glutamine-dependent form of asparagine synthetase. Southern blot analysis indicates that the common bean AS is part of a small family composed of at least two genes. Expression analysis by Northern blot revealed that the PVAS2 transcript accumulates to a high level in roots and, to a lesser extent, in nodules and developing pods. Accumulation of the PVAS2 transcript in the root seems to be negatively regulated by light and sucrose, and positively regulated by nitrate.  (+info)

Activation of the unfolded protein response pathway induces human asparagine synthetase gene expression. (4/128)

The gene for the amino acid biosynthetic activity asparagine synthetase (AS) is induced by both amino acid and glucose deprivation of cells. The data reported here document that the human AS gene is induced following activation of the Unfolded Response Pathway (UPR), also known as the Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress Response (ERSR) in mammals. Increased AS transcription occurs in response to glucose deprivation, tunicamycin, or azetidine-2-carboxylate, all known to activate the UPR/ERSR pathway. Previously identified ERSR target genes contain multiple copies of a single highly conserved cis-element. In contrast, the human AS gene does not contain the ERSR element, as it has been described for other responsive genes. Instead, AS induction requires an Sp1-like sequence, a sequence previously shown to be associated with amino acid control of transcription, and possibly, a third region containing no consensus sequences for known transcription factors. Oligonucleotides covering each of these regions form DNA-protein complexes in vitro, and for some the amount of these complexes is greater when nuclear extracts from glucose-starved cells are tested. These results document that a wider range of metabolic activities are activated by the UPR/ERSR pathway than previously recognized and that genomic elements other than those already described can serve to enhance transcription of specific target genes.  (+info)

Using genomic information to investigate the function of ThiI, an enzyme shared between thiamin and 4-thiouridine biosynthesis. (5/128)

The gene thiI encodes a protein (ThiI) that plays a role in the transfer of sulfur from cysteine to both thiamin and 4-thiouridine, but the reaction catalyzed by ThiI remains undetermined. Based upon sequence alignments, ThiI shares a unique "P-loop" motif with the PPi synthetase family, four enzymes that catalyze adenylation and subsequent substitution of carbonyl oxygens. To test whether or not this motif is critical for ThiI function, the Asp in the motif was converted to Ala (D189A), and a screen for in vivo 4-thiouridine production revealed the altered enzyme to be inactive. Further scrutiny of sequence data and the crystal structures of two members of the PPi synthetase family implicated Lys321 in the proposed adenylation function of ThiI, and the critical nature of Lys321 has been demonstrated by site-directed mutagenesis and genetic screening. Our results, then, indicate that ThiI catalyzes the adenylation of a substrate at the expense of ATP, a narrowing of possible reactions that provides a strong new basis for deducing the early steps in the transfer of sulfur from cysteine to both thiamin and 4-thiouridine.  (+info)

A mutation in the Corynebacterium glutamicum ltsA gene causes susceptibility to lysozyme, temperature-sensitive growth, and L-glutamate production. (6/128)

The Corynebacterium glutamicum mutant KY9714, originally isolated as a lysozyme-sensitive mutant, does not grow at 37 degrees C. Complementation tests and DNA sequencing analysis revealed that a mutation in a single gene of 1,920 bp, ltsA (lysozyme and temperature sensitive), was responsible for its lysozyme sensitivity and temperature sensitivity. The ltsA gene encodes a protein homologous to the glutamine-dependent asparagine synthetases of various organisms, but it could not rescue the asparagine auxotrophy of an Escherichia coli asnA asnB double mutant. Replacement of the N-terminal Cys residue (which is conserved in glutamine-dependent amidotransferases and is essential for enzyme activity) by an Ala residue resulted in the loss of complementation in C. glutamicum. The mutant ltsA gene has an amber mutation, and the disruption of the ltsA gene caused lysozyme and temperature sensitivity similar to that in the KY9714 mutant. L-Glutamate production was induced by elevating growth temperature in the disruptant. These results indicate that the ltsA gene encodes a novel glutamine-dependent amidotransferase that is involved in the mechanisms of formation of rigid cell wall structure and in the L-glutamate production of C. glutamicum.  (+info)

Evidence for multiple signaling pathways in the regulation of gene expression by amino acids in human cell lines. (7/128)

In mammals, plasma concentrations of amino acids (AA) are affected by nutritional or pathologic conditions. Alterations in AA profiles have been reported as a result of a deficiency of any one of the essential AA, a dietary imbalance of AA or an insufficient intake of protein. In recent years, evidence has accumulated that AA availability regulates the expression of several genes involved in the regulation of a number of cellular functions or AA metabolism. Nevertheless, the molecular mechanisms involved in the AA regulation of mammalian gene expression are limited, particularly the signaling pathways mediating the AA response. This work provides a better understanding of the signaling pathways involved in the AA control of gene expression. We studied the expression of C/EBP homologous protein (CHOP) and asparagine synthetase (AS) in response to deprivation of a single AA and investigated the possible link between protein synthesis inhibition due to amino acid limitation and gene expression. We have shown the following: 1) several mechanisms are involved in the AA control of gene expression. When omitted from the culture medium, each AA can activate one (or several) specific signaling pathways leading to the regulation of one specific pattern of genes. 2) AA limitation by itself can induce gene expression independently of a cellular stress due to protein synthesis inhibition. Together, these results suggest that AA control of gene expression involves several specific mechanisms by which one AA (or one group of AA) can activate one signaling pathway and thus alter one specific pattern of gene expression.  (+info)

Activation of the human asparagine synthetase gene by the amino acid response and the endoplasmic reticulum stress response pathways occurs by common genomic elements. (8/128)

The human asparagine synthetase (AS) gene is transcriptionally regulated by amino acid deprivation (amino acid response, AAR) and the endoplasmic reticulum stress response (ERSR), also known as the unfolded protein response pathway. The results reported here document the novel observation that induction of the AS gene by the AAR and ERSR pathways occurs via the same set of genomic elements. Data supporting this conclusion include transient transfection of AS promoter/reporter gene constructs that illustrate that the transcriptional control elements used by both pathways are contained with nucleotides -111 to -34 of the AS promoter. In vivo footprinting analysis of this region identified six specific protein-binding sites. Within two of these sites, altered footprinting was observed following amino acid or glucose deprivation, but the patterns were identical for both the AAR and the ERSR pathway. Site-directed mutation of individual nucleotides within these two binding sites confirmed their importance for regulated transcription, and none of the mutations resulted in loss of response of only one pathway. Neither of these two sites corresponds to a recently identified ERSR cis-element, nor do they contain consensus sequences for known transcription factors. Collectively, the data document that there are at least two independent transcriptional mechanisms for gene activation by the ERSR pathway, one of which terminates at the same genomic elements used by the AAR pathway.  (+info)

Targeting amino acid metabolism has therapeutic implications for aggressive brain tumors. Asparagine is an amino acid that is synthesized by normal cells. However, some cancer cells lack asparagine synthetase (ASNS), the key enzyme for asparagine synthesis. Asparaginase (ASNase) contributes to eradication of acute leukemia by decreasing asparagine levels in serum and cerebrospinal fluid. However, leukemic cells may become ASNase-resistant by up-regulating ASNS. High expression of ASNS has also been associated with biological aggressiveness of other cancers, including gliomas. Here, the impact of enzymatic depletion of asparagine on proliferation of brain tumor cells was determined. ASNase was used as monotherapy or in combination with conventional chemotherapeutic agents. Viability assays for ASNase-treated cells demonstrated significant growth reduction in multiple cell lines. This effect was reversed by glutamine in a dose-dependent manner -- as expected, because glutamine is the main amino ...

Here we show that these soil organisms can influence vegetation characteristics by increasing the transfer of the plant growth-limiting nutrient nitrogen (N) from their host, a N-fixing legume, to neighbouring grass species, thereby benefiting the growth of the neighbour. Furthermore, the amount of N transferred from the legume to the neighbour, and its consequent effect on the neighbours growth, was dependant on the density of root infestation. This mechanism of N transfer from legumes to neighbouring plant species is likely to be an important agent of vegetation change. © 2006 ...

L-Asparaginase (ASNase) is a drug used in treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. In presence of this enzyme the asparagine, an essential amino acid for biosynthesis, is converted to aspartic acid and ammonia. The malignant cells in patients with ASNase sensitive leukemia depend on exogenous supply of asparagine for survival. Administration of ASNase results in rapid reduction of systemic asparagine causing apoptosis of cancer cells. The effect of this enzyme on normal cells is not significant compared to the malignant cells as the normal cells are capable of generating their own source of asparagine through aspartic acid by way of asparagine synthetase.. Despite its effectiveness, the use of ASNase is not without problems. Due to its bacterial origin, namely E. coli and Erwinia carotovora, ASNase causes immunogenic response in patients and requires administration in hospital setting. The problem is compounded by the fact that ASNase has short half-life which in turn necessitates frequent ...

Asparagine (Asn) is one of the 20 most common natural amino acids on Earth. It has carboxamide as the side chains functional group. Asparagine is not an essential amino acid, which means that it can be synthesized from central metabolic pathway intermediates in humans and is not required in the diet. The precursor to asparagine is oxaloacetate. Oxaloacetate is converted to aspartate using a transaminase enzyme. The enzyme transfers the amino group from glutamate to oxaloacetate producing alpha-ketoglutarate and aspartate. The enzyme asparagine synthetase produces asparagine, AMP, glutamate, and pyrophosphate from aspartate, glutamine, and ATP. In the asparagine synthetase reaction, ATP is used to activate aspartate, forming beta-aspartyl-AMP. Glutamine donates an ammonium group which reacts with beta-aspartyl-AMP to form asparagine and free AMP. Since the asparagine side chain can make efficient hydrogen bond interactions with the peptide backbone, asparagines are often found near the beginning ...

Aiming at studying the course of the involved reaction, the following γ-amino acids were synthesized and characterized: (-)-3c-amino-1,2,2-trimethylcyclopentane-1r-carboxylic acid (= (-)-aminolauronic acid = (-)-3-aminocamphonanic acid; 39), cis-3-aminocyclopentanecarboxylic acid (41), (+)-3c-amino-2,2,3-trimethylcyclopentane-1r-carboxylic acid (= (-)-aminodihydrocampholytic acid; 42), and the novel (±)-cis-3-amino-2,2-dimethylcyclopentanecarboxylic acid (43). These γ-amino acids were deaminated by means of 4-diazoniobenzenesulfonate (= p-diazobenzenesulfonic acid; generated from p-sulfanilic acid = 4-aminobenzenesulfonic acid), under moderately basic aqueous conditions (pH 8-9). The formed product mixtures were separated, the products identified, and their structures correlated with the starting γ-amino acids, thus establishing that decarboxylation occurs whenever the carbenium ion formed by loss of nitrogen can ...
The amino acid asparagine was until now considered non-essential because it is produced naturally by the body. However, researchers found that it is essential for normal brain development.

Lab rat. Cedar says he was not the best student in NYUs MD/PhD program, but he did enjoy learning about the life sciences. I was infatuated with general biology principles. It was the beginning of the molecular biology revolution, says Cedar. After three years of medical school and clinical rotations, Cedar chose to work with James Schwartz, who started at NYU as a microbiologist and then became a neurobiologist, using the sea slug Aplysia to study how memory works. Part of Schwartzs research included examining how learning affects chromatin structure. Cedar was Schwartzs first graduate student. Its very good to be the first graduate student; you get a lot of attention, says Cedar. He studied E. colis synthesis of L-asparaginase, which catalyzes the hydrolysis of the amino acid asparagine to aspartic acid, and purified asparagine synthetase from the bacterium to study how that enzyme catalyzes the reverse reaction, using aspartate to produce the amino acid in vitro. Cedar enjoyed ...
The antileukemic activity of l-asparaginase (ASNase), an important component of therapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, is thought to result from depletion of serum l-asparagine (Asn). In studies of the pharmacological effects of ASNase, investigators have reported prolonged reduction in the serum concentration of Asn after the administration of ASNase. Such measurements may not be valid because ASNase present in the blood sample may hydrolyze Asn before its determination. We examined recovery of [U-14C]Asn from blood samples with and without various concentrations of added ASNase. In the presence of ≥0.01 IU/ml of ASNase, the amount of [U-14C]Asn recovered was ,15% of that without ASNase. Utilizing this assay, we studied the effect of 2 known inhibitors of ASNase in an attempt to improve Asn recovery. In the presence of aspartic β semialdehyde (ASA), or 5-diazo-4-oxo-l-norvaline (DONV), and up to 1.0 IU/ml ASNase, Asn levels remained at ,90% of control. ASA prevented the hydrolysis of ...

This study shows a critical role for Asna1 in ensuring β-cell function. Loss of Asna1 in β-cells of mice results in pancreatic hypoinsulinemia, impaired insulin secretion, and early onset diabetes. Additionally, β-cells of Asna1β−/− mice showed impaired PM-to-TGN as well as Golgi-to-ER retrograde transport, ER stress, and mislocalization of Stx5 and Stx6. Of note, we also show that inhibition of retrograde transport at the level of EE-to-TGN in isolated islet and insulinoma cells results in impaired Golgi-to-ER retrograde transport, decreased insulin content, and ER stress. Thus, the findings provide evidence that Asna1 is required in β-cells to ensure retrograde transport, which in turn appears to be essential for ER homeostasis and proinsulin biogenesis. Additionally, the perturbed Golgi-to-ER retrograde transport in Retro-2-treated primary islets suggests that the impairment of this step in Asna1β−/− β-cells likely is secondary to the inhibition of retrograde transport at the ...

Asparagine. Molecular model of the amino acid asparagine. Its chemical formula is C4.H8.N2.O3. Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour- coded: carbon (blue), hydrogen (gold), oxygen (red) and nitrogen (dark blue). Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Asparagine is a non-essential amino acid. It can be synthesised by the body and so does not need to come from the diet. Asparagine plays an important role in the folding of protein molecules into their secondary structures (alpha helices and beta sheets). Some proteins (such as haemoglobin, the oxygen- carrying pigment in human blood) cannot function without being folded into the correct shape. - Stock Image A611/0042

Asparaginase is a critical agent in the treatment of ALL. This enzyme deaminates asparagine, interfering with protein synthesis and resulting in cell death as lymphoblasts are deficient in asparagine synthetase. Eryaspase is a dispersion of homologous red blood cells (RBCs) encapsulating L-asparaginase formulated in a preservative solution for infusion. The formulation of eryaspase has evolved during its development. Two sources of L-asparaginase (drug substance) from Medac GmbH can be used as raw material and encapsulated in the RBCs: native (Kidrolase®) or recombinant L-asparaginase (Spectrila®). This study is designed to investigate the PK comparability of both eryaspase formulations: native or recombinant asparaginase as the starting material, when administered as monotherapy and in combination with chemotherapy during induction and consolidation phases for the treatment of children and young adults presenting with ALL/LBL. ...

Modelling complex systems such as agroecosystems often requires the quantification of a large number of input factors. Sensitivity analyses are useful to fix the appropriate spatial and temporal resolution of models and to reduce the number of input factors to be measured or estimated accurately. Comprehensive spatial and dynamic sensitivity analyses were applied to the Nitroscape model, a deterministic spatially distributed model describing nitrogen transfers and transformations in a rural landscape. Simulations were led on a virtual landscape that represented five years of farm management in an intensive rural area of 3 km². Cluster analyses were applied to summarize the results of the sensitivity analysis on the ensemble of model outcomes. The 29 studied output variables were split into five different clusters that grouped outcomes with similar response to input factors. Among the 11 studied factors, model outcomes were mainly sensitive to inputs characterizing the lateral transmissivity of soil.
Data Availability StatementThe following amino acid sequences from the catalytic area of individual proteins kinases were useful for the phylogenetic tree structure: AMPK(accession zero. Hector et al. 2016 [29]), zebrafish CDKL5 (accession no. type:entrez-protein,attrs:text:NP_001124243.1″,term_id:195546828″,term_text:NP_001124243.1″NP_001124243.1), and individual ERK2 (accession zero. type:entrez-protein,attrs:text:NP_002736.3″,term_id:66932916″,term_text:NP_002736.3″NP_002736.3).

Synthesis and expression of cDNA encoding chimeric and mutated subunits. cDNA constructs for human α4 (Kuryatov et al., 1997) and β2 (Anand and Lindstrom, 1990) subunits were kindly provided by Dr. Jon Lindstrom (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA) in pSP64 and were transferred to pcDNA3 (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA) for use. Rat α4 and β2 subunits were kindly provided by Dr. J. Patrick (Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX) (Sabey et al., 1999). Because of the high homology between the rat and human subunits, identical restriction sites could be found for the production of chimeras. Three sets of chimeric α4 subunits were made; for each set, one chimera was made with the rat sequence from the N terminus to the chimeric join, whereas the other chimera was made with the human sequence at the N terminus. The chimera pairs were made at the following amino acid residues (numbered for the mature protein): X1, 131/132 (AatII); X2, 296/297 (Alw44I); and X3, rat 268/human 268 or human ...

The mechanism by which asparaginase inhibits the 6C3HED tumor is probably not directly related to the cellular concentration of asparagine, since the concentration of asparagine decreases in resistant tumors, spleen, and liver, as well as in susceptible tumors. Amino acids other than asparagine may be affected by asparaginase because of the variety of metabolic relationships of the amino acids. In this study, analyses of all the amino acids of resistant 6C3HED tumor, susceptible 6C3HED tumor, spleen, and liver were undertaken.. Most of the amino acids of the susceptible tumor increased from 2- to 40-fold, while only slight changes occurred in the resistant tumor. The most dramatic change was a decrease in glycine in the susceptible tumor. No parallel change in glycine occurred in the resistant tumor, the spleen, or the liver. It is suggested that the susceptible tumor may synthesize glycine from asparagine; consequently, the decrease in asparagine is followed by a decrease in cellular glycine. ...
