Microscopy using an electron beam, instead of light, to visualize the sample, thereby allowing much greater magnification. The interactions of ELECTRONS with specimens are used to provide information about the fine structure of that specimen. In TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen are imaged. In SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY an electron beam falls at a non-normal angle on the specimen and the image is derived from the reactions occurring above the plane of the specimen.

They are polar lipids that are of great importance for the structure and function of cell membranes and are the most abundant of membrane lipids, although not stored in large amounts in the system.
A replica technique in which cells are frozen to a very low temperature and cracked with a knife blade to expose the interior surfaces of the cells or cell membranes. The cracked cell surfaces are then freeze-dried to expose their constituents. The surfaces are now ready for shadowing to be viewed using an electron microscope. This method differs from freeze-fracturing in that no cryoprotectant is used and, thus, allows for the sublimation of water during the freeze-drying process to etch the surfaces.
Red blood cells. Mature erythrocytes are non-nucleated, biconcave disks containing HEMOGLOBIN whose function is to transport OXYGEN.
Microscopy of specimens stained with fluorescent dye (usually fluorescein isothiocyanate) or of naturally fluorescent materials, which emit light when exposed to ultraviolet or blue light. Immunofluorescence microscopy utilizes antibodies that are labeled with fluorescent dye.

A system of cisternae in the CYTOPLASM of many cells. In places the endoplasmic reticulum is continuous with the plasma membrane (CELL MEMBRANE) or outer membrane of the nuclear envelope. If the outer surfaces of the endoplasmic reticulum membranes are coated with ribosomes, the endoplasmic reticulum is said to be rough-surfaced (ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM, ROUGH); otherwise it is said to be smooth-surfaced (ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM, SMOOTH). (King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
Cells propagated in vitro in special media conducive to their growth. Cultured cells are used to study developmental, morphologic, metabolic, physiologic, and genetic processes, among others.
Transport proteins that carry specific substances in the blood or across cell membranes.
The level of protein structure in which combinations of secondary protein structures (alpha helices, beta sheets, loop regions, and motifs) pack together to form folded shapes called domains. Disulfide bridges between cysteines in two different parts of the polypeptide chain along with other interactions between the chains play a role in the formation and stabilization of tertiary structure. Small proteins usually consist of only one domain but larger proteins may contain a number of domains connected by segments of polypeptide chain which lack regular secondary structure.
Microscopy in which the object is examined directly by an electron beam scanning the specimen point-by-point. The image is constructed by detecting the products of specimen interactions that are projected above the plane of the sample, such as backscattered electrons. Although SCANNING TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY also scans the specimen point by point with the electron beam, the image is constructed by detecting the electrons, or their interaction products that are transmitted through the sample plane, so that is a form of TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY.
A stack of flattened vesicles that functions in posttranslational processing and sorting of proteins, receiving them from the rough ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM and directing them to secretory vesicles, LYSOSOMES, or the CELL MEMBRANE. The movement of proteins takes place by transfer vesicles that bud off from the rough endoplasmic reticulum or Golgi apparatus and fuse with the Golgi, lysosomes or cell membrane.

Scavenger receptor BI transfers major lipoprotein-associated phospholipids into the cells. (1/160)

The phospholipids of lipoproteins can be transferred to cells by an endocytosis-independent uptake pathway. We analyzed the role of scavenger receptor BI (SR-BI) for the selective cellular phospholipid import. Human monocytes rapidly acquired the pyrene (py)-labeled phospholipids sphingomyelin (SM), phosphatidylcholine, and phosphatidylethanolamine from different donors (low and high density lipoproteins (LDL, HDL), lipid vesicles). The anti-SR-BI antibody directed against the extracellular loop of the membrane protein lowered the cellular import of the phospholipids by 40-80%. The phospholipid transfer from the lipid vesicles into the monocytes was suppressed by LDL, HDL, and apoprotein AI. Transfection of BHK cells with the cDNA for human SR-BI enhanced the cellular import of the vesicle-derived py-phospholipids by 5-6-fold. In the case of the LDL donors, transfer of py-SM to the transfected cells was stimulated to a greater extent than the uptake of the other py-phospholipids. Similar differences were not observed when the vesicles and HDL were used as phospholipid donors. The concentration of LDL required for the half-maximal phospholipid import was close to the previously reported apparent dissociation constant for LDL binding to SR-BI. The low activation energy of the SR-BI-mediated py-phospholipid import indicated that the transfer occurs entirely in a hydrophobic environment. Disruption of cell membrane caveolae by cyclodextrin treatment reduced the SR-BI-catalyzed incorporation of py-SM, suggesting that intact caveolae are necessary for the phospholipid uptake. In conclusion, SR-BI mediates the selective import of the major lipoprotein-associated phospholipids into the cells, the transfer efficiency being dependent on the structure of the donor lipoprotein.  (+info)

Myosin-X, a novel myosin with pleckstrin homology domains, associates with regions of dynamic actin. (2/160)

Myosin-X is the founding member of a novel class of unconventional myosins characterized by a tail domain containing multiple pleckstrin homology domains. We report here the full-length cDNA sequences of human and bovine myosin-X as well as the first characterization of this protein's distribution and biochemical properties. The 235 kDa myosin-X contains a head domain with <45% protein sequence identity to other myosins, three IQ motifs, and a predicted stalk of coiled coil. Like several other unconventional myosins and a plant kinesin, myosin-X contains both a myosin tail homology 4 (MyTH4) domain and a FERM (band 4.1/ezrin/radixin/moesin) domain. The unique tail domain also includes three pleckstrin homology domains, which have been implicated in phosphatidylinositol phospholipid signaling, and three PEST sites, which may allow cleavage of the myosin tail. Most intriguingly, myosin-X in cultured cells is present at the edges of lamellipodia, membrane ruffles, and the tips of filopodial actin bundles. The tail domain structure, biochemical features, and localization of myosin-X suggest that this novel unconventional myosin plays a role in regions of dynamic actin.  (+info)

Coordinated gating of TRP-dependent channels in rhabdomeral membranes from Drosophila retinas. (3/160)

Using a newly developed dissociation procedure, we isolated the specialized rhabdomeral membranes from Drosophila retinal photoreceptors. From these membranes, we have recorded spontaneous active currents in excised patch, voltage-clamp recordings. We observed rapid opening events that closely resembled those ascribed to one class of light-activated channels, TRP. All activity exhibited Ba(2+) permeability, little voltage dependence, and sensitivity to La(3+) block. Mutational analysis indicated that the spontaneous activity present in these membranes was TRP-dependent. Excised patches from wild-type rhabdomeral membranes exhibited a wide range of conductance amplitudes. In addition, large conductance events exhibited many conductance levels in the open state. Block of activity by La(3+) both developed and recovered in a stepwise manner. Our results indicate that TRP-dependent channels have a small unitary conductance and that many channels can be gated coordinately.  (+info)

p(1),p(4)-diadenosine 5'-tetraphosphate induces the uptake of arginine and citrulline by a pore on the plasma membrane of bovine aortic endothelial cells. (4/160)

We have previously demonstrated that p(1),p(4)-diadenosine 5'-tetraphosphate (Ap(4)A) induces the release of nitric oxide (NO) and modulates the uptake of extracellular L-arginine (L-Arg) and L-citrulline (L-Cit) by bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAEC) [Hilderman, R.H. and Christensen, E.F. (1998) FEBS Lett. 427, 320-324 and Hilderman, R.H., Casey, T.E. and Pojoga, L.H. (2000) Arch. Biochem. Biophys. 375, 124-130]. In this communication we report that extracellular Ap(4)A enhances the uptake of L-Arg and L-Cit through a pore on the plasma membrane of BAEC that is selective for these two amino acids. We also demonstrate that Ap(2)A, which induces NO release, enhances L-Arg uptake while Ap(5)A, a vasoconstrictor, does not enhance the uptake of L-Arg. The potential physiological significance of the uptake of these two amino acids in relation to NO synthesis is discussed.  (+info)

The yeast inositol polyphosphate 5-phosphatases inp52p and inp53p translocate to actin patches following hyperosmotic stress: mechanism for regulating phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate at plasma membrane invaginations. (5/160)

The Saccharomyces cerevisiae inositol polyphosphate 5-phosphatases (Inp51p, Inp52p, and Inp53p) each contain an N-terminal Sac1 domain, followed by a 5-phosphatase domain and a C-terminal proline-rich domain. Disruption of any two of these 5-phosphatases results in abnormal vacuolar and plasma membrane morphology. We have cloned and characterized the Sac1-containing 5-phosphatases Inp52p and Inp53p. Purified recombinant Inp52p lacking the Sac1 domain hydrolyzed phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate [PtdIns(4,5)P(2)] and PtdIns(3, 5)P(2). Inp52p and Inp53p were expressed in yeast as N-terminal fusion proteins with green fluorescent protein (GFP). In resting cells recombinant GFP-tagged 5-phosphatases were expressed diffusely throughout the cell but were excluded from the nucleus. Following hyperosmotic stress the GFP-tagged 5-phosphatases rapidly and transiently associated with actin patches, independent of actin, in both the mother and daughter cells of budding yeast as demonstrated by colocalization with rhodamine phalloidin. Both the Sac1 domain and proline-rich domains were able to independently mediate translocation of Inp52p to actin patches, following hyperosmotic stress, while the Inp53p proline-rich domain alone was sufficient for stress-mediated localization. Overexpression of Inp52p or Inp53p, but not catalytically inactive Inp52p, which lacked PtdIns(4,5)P(2) 5-phosphatase activity, resulted in a dramatic reduction in the repolarization time of actin patches following hyperosmotic stress. We propose that the osmotic-stress-induced translocation of Inp52p and Inp53p results in the localized regulation of PtdIns(3,5)P(2) and PtdIns(4,5)P(2) at actin patches and associated plasma membrane invaginations. This may provide a mechanism for regulating actin polymerization and cell growth as an acute adaptive response to hyperosmotic stress.  (+info)

Restricted accumulation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase products in a plasmalemmal subdomain during Fc gamma receptor-mediated phagocytosis. (6/160)

Phagocytosis is a highly localized and rapid event, requiring the generation of spatially and temporally restricted signals. Because phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) plays an important role in the innate immune response, we studied the generation and distribution of 3' phosphoinositides (3'PIs) in macrophages during the course of phagocytosis. The presence of 3'PI was monitored noninvasively in cells transfected with chimeras of green fluorescent protein and the pleckstrin homology domain of either Akt, Btk, or Gab1. Although virtually undetectable in unstimulated cells, 3'PI rapidly accumulated at sites of phagocytosis. This accumulation was sharply restricted to the phagosomal cup, with little 3'PI detectable in the immediately adjacent areas of the plasmalemma. Measurements of fluorescence recovery after photobleaching were made to estimate the mobility of lipids in the cytosolic monolayer of the phagosomal membrane. Stimulation of phagocytic receptors induced a marked reduction of lipid mobility that likely contributes to the restricted distribution of 3'PI at the cup. 3'PI accumulation during phagocytosis was transient, terminating shortly after sealing of the phagosomal vacuole. Two factors contribute to the rapid disappearance of 3'PI: the dissociation of the type I PI3K from the phagosomal membrane and the persistent accumulation of phosphoinositide phosphatases.  (+info)

Differential dynamics of alpha 5 integrin, paxillin, and alpha-actinin during formation and disassembly of adhesions in migrating cells. (7/160)

To investigate the mechanisms by which adhesions form and disperse in migrating cells, we expressed alpha 5 integrin, alpha-actinin, and paxillin as green fluorescent protein (GFP) fusions. All localized with their endogenous counterparts and did not perturb migration when expressed at moderate levels. alpha 5-GFP also rescued the adhesive defects in CHO B2 cells, which are alpha 5 integrin deficient. In ruffling cells, alpha 5-GFP and alpha-actinin--GFP localized prominently at the leading edge in membrane protrusions. Of the three GFP fusion proteins that we examined, paxillin was the first component to appear visibly organized in protrusive regions of the cell. When a new protrusion formed, the paxillin appeared to remodel from older to newer adhesions at the leading edge. alpha-Actinin subsequently entered adhesions, which translocated toward the cell center, and inhibited paxillin turnover. The new adhesions formed from small foci of alpha-actinin--GFP and paxillin-GFP, which grew in size. Subsequently, alpha 5 integrin entered the adhesions to form visible complexes, which served to stabilize the adhesions. alpha 5-GFP also resided in endocytic vesicles that emanated from the leading edge of protrusions. Integrin vesicles at the cell rear moved toward the cell body. As cells migrated, alpha 5 vesicles also moved from a perinuclear region to the base of the lamellipodium. The alpha 5 vesicles colocalized with transferrin receptor and FM 4-64 dye. After adhesions broke down in the rear, alpha 5-GFP was found in fibrous structures behind the cell, whereas alpha-actinin--GFP and paxillin-GFP moved up the lateral edge of retracting cells as organized structures and then dissipated.  (+info)

The Dictyostelium CARMIL protein links capping protein and the Arp2/3 complex to type I myosins through their SH3 domains. (8/160)

Fusion proteins containing the Src homology (SH)3 domains of Dictyostelium myosin IB (myoB) and IC (myoC) bind a 116-kD protein (p116), plus nine other proteins identified as the seven member Arp2/3 complex, and the alpha and beta subunits of capping protein. Immunoprecipitation reactions indicate that myoB and myoC form a complex with p116, Arp2/3, and capping protein in vivo, that the myosins bind to p116 through their SH3 domains, and that capping protein and the Arp2/3 complex in turn bind to p116. Cloning of p116 reveals a protein dominated by leucine-rich repeats and proline-rich sequences, and indicates that it is a homologue of Acan 125. Studies using p116 fusion proteins confirm the location of the myosin I SH3 domain binding site, implicate NH(2)-terminal sequences in binding capping protein, and show that a region containing a short sequence found in several G-actin binding proteins, as well as an acidic stretch, can activate Arp2/3-dependent actin nucleation. p116 localizes along with the Arp2/3 complex, myoB, and myoC in dynamic actin-rich cellular extensions, including the leading edge of cells undergoing chemotactic migration, and dorsal, cup-like, macropinocytic extensions. Cells lacking p116 exhibit a striking defect in the formation of these macropinocytic structures, a concomitant reduction in the rate of fluid phase pinocytosis, a significant decrease in the efficiency of chemotactic aggregation, and a decrease in cellular F-actin content. These results identify a complex that links key players in the nucleation and termination of actin filament assembly with a ubiquitous barbed end-directed motor, indicate that the protein responsible for the formation of this complex is physiologically important, and suggest that previously reported myosin I mutant phenotypes in Dictyostelium may be due, at least in part, to defects in the assembly state of actin. We propose that p116 and Acan 125, along with homologues identified in Caenorhabditis elegans, Drosophila, mouse, and man, be named CARMIL proteins, for capping protein, Arp2/3, and myosin I linker.  (+info)

Abstract: During macropinocytosis, cells remodel their morphologies for the uptake of extracellular matter. This endocytotic mechanism relies on the collapse and closure of precursory structures, which are propagating actin-based, ring-shaped vertical undulations at the dorsal (top) cell membrane, a.k.a. circular dorsal ruffles (CDRs). As such, CDRs are essential to a range of vital and pathogenic processes alike. Here we show, based on both experimental data and theoretical analysis, that CDRs are propagating fronts of actin polymerization in a bistable system. The theory relies on a novel mass-conserving reaction-diffusion model, which associates the expansion and contraction of waves to distinct counter-propagating front solutions. Moreover, the model predicts that under a change in parameters (for example, biochemical conditions) CDRs may be pinned and fluctuate near the cell boundary or exhibit complex spiral wave dynamics due to a wave instability. We observe both phenomena also in our ...

The purposes of this study were to investigate the systemic and characteristic metabolites in the serum of dairy goats induced by aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) exposure and to further understand the endogenous metabolic alterations induced by it. A nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based metabonomic approach was used to analyse the metabolic alterations in dairy goats that were induced by low doses of AFB1 (50 µg/kg DM). We found that AFB1 exposure caused significant elevations of glucose, citrate, acetate, acetoacetate, betaine, and glycine yet caused reductions of lactate, ketone bodies (acetate, β-hydroxybutyrate), amino acids (citrulline, leucine/isoleucine, valine, creatine) and cell membrane structures (choline, lipoprotein, N-acetyl glycoproteins) in the serum ...

Sterols Analysis Sterols, or Steroidal Alcohols, are members of the steroid family of organic molecules. Theses compounds fulfill essential roles in eukaryotic cell membrane structure and dynamics, and as precursors to steroid hormones and fat-soluble vitamins. This class of organic molecules is further sub-divided into phytosterols (plant sterols), zoosterols (animal sterols)
The research focus of the Laboratory of Molecular Signaling (LMS) is to elucidate mechanisms of omega-3 fatty acids, especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6n-3) in neuronal development and function with particular reference to the modulation by ethanol. We investigate biochemical mechanisms by which omega-3 fatty acids and ethanol modify neuronal cell membrane structure, and characterize consequential molecular and cellular signaling involved in neuronal survival and differentiation. We also investigate the metabolism of polyunsaturated lipids to bioactive mediators and their in vivo implication in neurodevelopment and neuroprotection. To this end, we devise multidisciplinary approaches using molecular, cellular and modern instrumental techniques as well as animal models. The current research topics include 1) neurogenesis, neuritogenesis, synaptogenesis and neuroinflammation affected by DHA and DHA metabolites; 2) identification of target receptors of active DHA-metabolites; 3) molecular ...

In their key experiment, Dr Wang used fluorescent dye that changes in intensity as the electric potential of the cell membrane changes. When two cells connected by forming a nanotube, he poked into one of them with a microinjection needle to depolarise that cells membrane potential. This caused the fluorescent indicator on the cell membrane to light up like a firework, and it was soon followed by a similar light display in the cell on the other end of the nanotube ...

Bayesian localization microscopy reveals nanoscale podosome dynamics. Susan Cox, Edward Rosten, James Monypenny, Tijana Jovanovic-Talisman, Dylan T Burnette, Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, Gareth E Jones & Rainer Heintzmann. Nature Methods. 2012, volume 9: 195-200. doi: 10.1038/nmeth.1812. An analytical approach based on the concept of fluorophore localisation provides dynamic super-resolution data of xFP- labelled live cells using a common arc lamp based wide-field fluorescence microscope. One method of achieving fluorescence super-resolution is based around finding the positions of fluorescent molecules that label the cellular structure of interest. In this approach, positions can be determined precisely and accurately using fluorescent probes that can be photoactivated, photoconverted or photoswitched to generate single images with emitter densities of only about one active fluorophore per diffraction-limited area. Many images each containing subsets of active ...

When handling parts smaller than an 1/8-in. (3mm) a small-part tip is recommended. The business end of the small-part tip typically has conical point ending in a flat area with a hole drilled down the center. The holes vary in size from 0.060 to 0.003-in. (1.5 to 0.076mm). The tip with the smallest hole size easily handles 100µm size parts. This style of tip is used with any of the abovementioned systems that provide a constant vacuum source such as the bench top tools that plug into an electrical outlet. In this case the vacuum pen has an air hose connected to the back of the tool and the pick-up tip is on the front of the tool. To handle parts with this system, simply touch the tip to the part and it is gripped for pick and place. To release the part, just tap the control button on the side of the pen. Applications for this style of tip include handling items such as SMD components, small ball lenses, miniature springs, small optical fibers, and other equally tiny and fragile parts ...

  • It gives an overview of membrane proteins, with particular emphasis on peripheral and integral proteins. (
  • The user will learn about membrane proteins, their structures, and how they contribute towards cell function. (
  • Special proteins inserted in cellular membranes create pores that permit the passage of molecules across them. (
  • Ion gradients across membranes, established by the activities of specialized membrane proteins, can be used to synthesize ATP, to drive the transmembrane movement of selected solutes, or, in nerve and muscle cells, to produce and transmit electrical signals. (
  • In the plasma membrane, some proteins serve as structural links that connect the cytoskeleton through the lipid bilayer to either the extracellular matrix or an adjacent cell, while others serve as receptors to detect and transduce chemical signals in the cell's environment. (
  • As would be expected, it takes many different membrane proteins to enable a cell to function and interact with its environment. (
  • In fact, it is estimated that about 30% of the proteins that are encoded in an animal cell's genome are membrane proteins. (
  • In this chapter we consider the structure and organization of the two main constituents of biological membranes-the lipids and the membrane proteins. (
  • The cell membrane is a phospholipid bi-layer into which proteins glycoproteins and glycolipids are ingrained. (
  • Cytoskeleton vesicles and the cell membrane are also involved in the secretion of proteins. (
  • All cells are surrounded by the cell membranes and this characteristic best portrayed by the Fluid Mosaic ModelAccording to this model which was postulated by Singer and Nicolson during the 1970s plasma membranes are composed of lipids proteins and carbohydrates that are arranged in a mosaic-like manner. (
  • Proteins and lipids are the major components of the cell membrane. (
  • Some of these proteins span the whole width of the membrane. (
  • A double membrane sac which pinches off the end of organelles such as the RER or Golgi Apparatus and fuses with other membranes such as the RER Golgi or Plasma Membrane Function of Vesicles -Transport proteins and other substances between organelles and the outside of the cell. (
  • This is a thin flexible layer round the outside of all cells made of phospholipids and proteins. (
  • Cell membrane consists of a lipid bilayer with embedded proteins in it. (
  • Cytoskeleton provides a scaffolding to anchor the membrane proteins. (
  • Cell membrane is mostly composed of lipids and proteins . (
  • 50% of the cell membrane consists of proteins. (
  • Proteins can be found in three types on the membrane: integral or transmembrane proteins, lipid anchored proteins and peripheral proteins. (
  • Johansson, I., Larsson, C., Ek, B. & Kjellbom, P. The major integral proteins of spinach leaf plasma membranes are putative aquaporins and are phosphorylated in response to Ca 2+ and apoplastic water potential. (
  • Most cells contain ribosomes , which are structures that combine amino acids to create proteins. (
  • Our cells do a lot for us: they synthesize proteins, convert nutrients from our food into energy we can use, and make up the tissues and organs in our bodies. (
  • Most bacteria are, however, surrounded by a rigid cell wall made out of peptidoglycan , a polymer composed of linked carbohydrates and small proteins. (
  • For instance, although archaea also have a cell wall, it's not made out of peptidoglycan-although it does contain carbohydrates and proteins. (
  • The arrangement of these proteins and the RNA genome determine the structure of the rabies virus. (
  • The fluid mosaic model describes the cell membrane as a tapestry of several types of molecules (phospholipids, cholesterols, and proteins) that are constantly moving. (
  • It helps maintain the structure of muscle tissue by attaching (binding) to and stabilizing the dystrophin complex, which is made up of proteins called dystrophins and dystroglycans. (
  • It acts as an anchor, connecting each muscle cell's structural framework (cytoskeleton) with the lattice of proteins and other molecules outside the cell (extracellular matrix). (
  • Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) capable of targeting therapeutically important membrane proteins such as G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), ion channels, transporters, and viral envelope proteins are becoming harder to isolate. (
  • Complex viral-membrane proteins also pose a unique set of challenges for vaccine discovery, and the induction of broadly reactive, potently neutralizing antibodies against viral envelope proteins remains a daunting task for pathogens such as HIV and HCV. (
  • Underlying the difficulty in deriving useful mAbs is the structural complexity of membrane proteins and the need to present the target antigens within eukaryotic cell membranes to maintain structural integrity. (
  • Many membrane proteins span the lipid bilayer multiple times, form oligomeric structures, and have complex post-translational modifications. (
  • The most effective mAbs usually target conformational epitopes on membrane proteins, so the use of structurally correct antigens is a crucial element in the process. (
  • Additionally, large quantities of cell-surface-expressed proteins are usually required for antibody isolation and vaccine discovery, where biochemically relevant levels of protein are essential for immunization, panning, screening, purification, crystallization, and other downstream studies. (
  • With the requirement for high yield and native conformation, wild-type versions of membrane proteins are not always suitable. (
  • However, membrane proteins can often be engineered to achieve these requirements. (
  • Most often, the primary bottleneck in mAb discovery against membrane proteins is obtaining sufficient cell surface expression, since low levels of antigen can preclude a robust immune response in animals, limit the number of hits in phage or yeast display screens, and reduce the sensitivity of downstream immunoassays. (
  • Some membrane proteins are poorly transcribed or translated, in some cases due to incompatible promoters, cells, or growth conditions. (
  • Other membrane proteins have intrinsic folding or subunit assembly limitations, and attempts at overexpression can overwhelm the capacity of the cell and result in premature degradation. (
  • Once produced, some membrane proteins fail to traffic to the cell surface because of retention motifs, poor leader sequences, or the unavailability of protein chaperones. (
  • In other cases, proteins do successfully traffic to the cell surface, but are then actively internalized. (
  • Finally, overexpressed membrane proteins can be toxic to cells due to their biological function, constitutive activity, or activation by serum components. (
  • To overcome the bottleneck of obtaining sufficient membrane protein surface expression, Integral Molecular has developed a suite of tools, termed the MPO Toolbox™, which is designed to optimize the expression and conformational stability of human and viral membrane proteins ( Figure 1 ). (
  • MPO takes into account that some membrane proteins traffic better to the cell surface when expressed at lower levels that allow slower and more native folding of the protein. (
  • It inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by binding to 1 or more penicillin-binding proteins. (
  • The structure of the extracellular matrix differs in composition between tissue types but is essentially made up of collagen fibers, proteoglycans and multiadhesive matrix proteins that are secreted by cells. (
  • The extracellular matrix proteins fibrin, fibronectin and collagen provide structural integrity during the repair, with the fibrin-fibronectin interactions acting as a foundation for cell adhesion and migration. (
  • Using the photophobic response mediating phototaxis of Halobacterium salinarum as example, the poster illustrates how interactions at different levels of complexity (photon, small molecule, protein complex, network of interacting proteins, protein supercomplex, living cell) cooperatively control the intelligent behaviour of a living cell. (
  • Other sugars and polyols have been explored as a partner chemical that provides many hydrogen bonding sites that stabilize the complex 3-D structure of proteins, enzymes, and nucleic acids in the absence of water but trehalose seems to be one of the best. (
  • It is believed that tardigrades produce various "dry-tolerant proteins" that "are intrinsically disordered in water but develop secondary structures in the dehydrated state that allow them to stabilize DNA, proteins, and cell membranes. (
  • This code acts like an instruction manual: the plant cells read it and then use the information to start pumping out spike proteins in surplus, Dr. Ward said. (
  • Almost four decades of research have led scientists at Japan's Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) to propose that a family of transporter proteins has played an important role in species evolution. (
  • There are different types of ABC proteins with different transportation roles, importing nutrients into cells, exporting toxic compounds outside them, and regulating lipid concentrations within cell membranes. (
  • Organisms that existed early in Earth's history were probably formed of DNA and proteins surrounded by a leaky lipid membrane. (
  • The ABC proteins also played important roles in generating an outer membrane that protected cells from external stresses and in removing harmful substances from inside. (
  • The resultant accumulation of cholesterol in the inner leaflet triggers the recruitment of proteins to the membrane and modulates the signal transduction. (
  • They are specialized integral membrane proteins that allow communication between the cell and the outside world. (
  • [2] [3] Many membrane receptors include transmembrane proteins . (

  • Three classes of amphipathic lipids can be found in the cell membrane: phospholipids, glycolipids and sterols. (
  • The scientists engineered a microfluidic device containing an array of microscopic cups, each trapping a single droplet of water bathed in oil and lipids, the molecules that make up cellular membranes. (
  • The computer-controlled microfluidic circuits we have constructed will allow us to assemble synthetic cells not only from biologically derived lipids, but from any amphiphile and to measure important chemical and physical parameters, such as permeability and stability," said Paegel. (
  • How do lipids provide structure? (
  • The bacterial protein shown here uses the energy from light (photons) to activate the pumping of protons across the plasma membrane. (
  • these protein sensors, or receptors, transfer information-rather than ions or molecules-across the membrane. (
  • Despite their differing functions, all biological membranes have a common general structure: each is a very thin film of lipid and protein molecules, held together mainly by noncovalent interactions. (
  • Protein molecules that span the lipid bilayer mediate nearly all of the other functions of the membrane, transporting specific molecules across it, for example, or catalyzing membrane-associated reactions, such as ATP synthesis. (
  • In Chapters 12 and 13 we discuss the internal membranes of the cell and the protein traffic through and between them. (
  • Every cell has a lipid and protein layer called cell membrane or cytoplasmic or plasma which defines its boundaries and regulates molecular exchanges with the external environmentThis structure can even be called the inner membrane to distinguish it from the outer membrane present in gram-negative bacteria. (

  • The cell consists of a permeable cell membrane, DNA, protein factories called ribosomes, and a protective outer cell wall. (
  • The sarcoglycan protein complex is located in the membrane surrounding muscle cells. (
  • Chemokines are a family of small cytokines that promote cell migration and activation, exerting their actions on binding to G protein-coupled receptors ( 1 ). (
  • The MPO algorithm next assesses opportunities for enhanced protein trafficking by scanning for sequence motifs that affect internalization and retention away from the cell surface, and alters these sequences accordingly. (
  • Once you have your crystals and the results of the x-ray diffraction measurement, you can immediately see the structure of the protein. (
  • What Slotboom saw was a protein that wound itself around the cell membrane seven times. (
  • That is actually an acronym for Sugar Will Eventually Efflux Transporter, as this protein can transport sugar both ways: into or out of the cell. (
  • The formation of dorsal ruffles or any elaborate membrane protrusion structure on the dorsal surface of the cell is a sophisticated multifaceted event that involves complex spatio-temporal activity of protein machineries [ 7 ]. (

  • Furthermore, cells participate in the formation of the extracellular matrix through the secretion of matrix macromolecules. (
  • Some of the cells were poorly differentiated and were equipped with poorly developed organoids, without formation of osmiophilic lamellar bodies. (
  • This article discusses the hypothesis of the relationship between cell membrane structure and nanoparticles in cancer cells. (
  • Using your response to question 18 construct an explanation for why a plant has both a rigid cell wall and a cellular membrane. (
  • Cell membrane is a protective covering that acts as a barrier between the inner and outer environment of a cell in animals. (
  • Consisting of only eight strands, our DNA nanostructure spontaneously inserts into biological membranes by forming a toroidal pore that connects the membrane's inner and outer leaflets. (
  • A specific receptor may also be differently distributed on different membrane surfaces, depending on the membrane sort and cell function. (
  • The capsule is sticky and helps the cell attach to surfaces in its environment. (
  • Fimbriae are numerous, hair-like structures that are used for attachment to host cells and other surfaces. (
