Immature ERYTHROCYTES. In humans, these are ERYTHROID CELLS that have just undergone extrusion of their CELL NUCLEUS. They still contain some organelles that gradually decrease in number as the cells mature. RIBOSOMES are last to disappear. Certain staining techniques cause components of the ribosomes to precipitate into characteristic "reticulum" (not the same as the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM), hence the name reticulocytes.

Studies on a nonpolysomal ribonucleoprotein coding for myosin heavy chains from chick embryonic muscles. (1/2686)

A messenger ribonucleoprotein (mRNP) particle containing the mRNA coding for the myosin heavy chain (MHC mRNA) has been isolated from the postpolysomal fraction of homogenates of 14-day-old chick embryonic muscles. The mRNP sediments in sucrose gradient as 120 S and has a characteristic buoyant density of 1.415 g/cm3, which corresponds to an RNA:protein ratio of 1:3.8. The RNA isolated from the 120 S particle behaved like authentic MHC mRNA purified from chick embryonic muscles with respect to electrophoretic mobility and ability to program the synthesis of myosin heavy chain in a rabbit reticulocyte lysate system as judged by multi-step co-purification of the in vitro products with chick embryonic leg muscle myosin added as carrier. The RNA obtained from the 120 S particle was as effective as purified MHC mRNA in stimulating the synthesis of the complete myosin heavy chains in rabbit reticulocyte lysate under conditions where non-muscle mRNAs had no such effect. Analysis of the protein moieties of the 120 S particle by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis shows the presence of seven distinct polypeptides with apparent molecular weights of 44,000, 49,000, 53,000, 81,000, 83,000, and 98,000, whereas typical ribosomal proteins are absent. These results indicate that the 120 S particles are distinct cellular entities unrelated to ribosomes or initiation complexes. The presence of muscle-specific mRNAs as cytoplasmic mRNPs suggests that these particles may be involved in translational control during myogenesis in embryonic muscles.  (+info)

Purification and characterization of initiation factor IF-E2 from rabbit reticulocytes. (2/2686)

Initiation factor IF-E2 was isolated from rabbit reticulocytes and purified 120-fold to near homogeneity by ammonium sulfate fractionation, column chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and phosphocellulose, and, when suitable, by sucrose density gradient centrifugation. The factor is a complex protein containing three nonidentical polypeptides of molecular weight 57,000, 52,000, and 36,000. It behaves as a complex throughout its purification and during polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in nondenaturing buffer but its thress components are readily separated by electrophoresis in denaturing buffers. None of its components corresponds to any of the polypeptides of the other initiation factors or to any proteins of ribosomes washed in buffers containing a high salf concentration. A stoichiometric ratio of 1:1:1 was determined for the three polypeptides; based on the assumption of one copy each per complex, the calculated factor molecular weight is 145,000, a value in agreement with the measured value of 160,000. Initiation factor IF-E2 was radioactively labeled in vitro by reductive alkylation or by phosphorylation with a protein kinase also isolated from rabbit reticulocytes. Neither procedure causes a measurable change in the ability of the factor to form a ternary complex with GTP and the initiator methionyl-tRNA. 5'-Guanylyl-methylenediphosphonate may substitute for GTP, but only at relatively high concentrations. The binding of labeled initiation factor IF-E2 and methionyl-tRNA to the 40 S ribosomal subunit was studied by sucrose density gradient centrifugation. Appreciable binding of the factor is seen only when all three components of the ternary complex are included in the reaction mixture. The binding of either the factor or methionyl-tRNA was not stimulated by the addition of globin messenger RNA and initiation factor IF-E3. It was shown that all three polypeptide components of initiation factor IF-E2 are bound to these nascent initiation complexes.  (+info)

BE-31405, a new antifungal antibiotic produced by Penicillium minioluteum. I. Description of producing organism, fermentation, isolation, physico-chemical and biological properties. (3/2686)

A new antifungal antibiotic, BE-31405, was isolated from the culture broth of a fungal strain, Penicillium minioluteum F31405. BE-31405 was isolated by adsorption on high porous polymer resin (Diaion HP-20), followed by solvent extraction, precipitation and crystallization. BE-31405 showed potent growth inhibitory activity against pathogenic fungal strains such as Candida albicans, Candida glabrata and Cryptococcus neoformans, but did not show cytotoxic activity against mammalian cells such as P388 mouse leukemia. The mechanism studies indicated that BE-31405 inhibited the protein synthesis of C. albicans but not of mammalian cells.  (+info)

unr, a cellular cytoplasmic RNA-binding protein with five cold-shock domains, is required for internal initiation of translation of human rhinovirus RNA. (4/2686)

Initiation of translation of the animal picornavirus RNAs occurs via a mechanism of direct ribosome entry, which requires a segment of the 5' UTR of the RNA, known as the internal ribosome entry site (IRES). In addition, translation of the enterovirus and rhinovirus (HRV) subgroups requires cellular trans-acting factors that are absent from, or limiting in rabbit reticulocytes, but are more abundant in HeLa cell extracts. It has been shown previously that HeLa cells contain two separable activities, each of which independently stimulates HRV IRES-dependent translation when used to supplement reticulocyte lysate; one of these activities was identified as polypyrimidine tract-binding protein (PTB). Here, the purification of the second activity is achieved by use of an RNA-affinity column based on the HRV 5' UTR. It comprises two components: a 38-kD protein (p38), which is a novel member of the GH-WD repeat protein family and has no intrinsic RNA-binding activity; and a 96- to 97-kD protein doublet, which was identified as unr, an RNA-binding protein with five cold-shock domains. Coimmunoprecipitation with antibodies against either protein shows that the two proteins interact with each other, and thus p38 is named unrip (unr-interacting protein). Recombinant unr acts synergistically with recombinant PTB to stimulate translation dependent on the rhinovirus IRES. In contrast, unr did not significantly augment the PTB-dependent stimulation of poliovirus IRES activity.  (+info)

Cell-free immunology: construction and in vitro expression of a PCR-based library encoding a single-chain antibody repertoire. (5/2686)

The new approach provides an effective alternative to the techniques involving in vivo procedures of preparation and handling large libraries of antibodies. The possible use of the described strategy in the ribosome display is discussed.  (+info)

Gbeta5 prevents the RGS7-Galphao interaction through binding to a distinct Ggamma-like domain found in RGS7 and other RGS proteins. (6/2686)

The G protein beta subunit Gbeta5 deviates significantly from the other four members of Gbeta-subunit family in amino acid sequence and subcellular localization. To detect the protein targets of Gbeta5 in vivo, we have isolated a native Gbeta5 protein complex from the retinal cytosolic fraction and identified the protein tightly associated with Gbeta5 as the regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) protein, RGS7. Here we show that complexes of Gbeta5 with RGS proteins can be formed in vitro from the recombinant proteins. The reconstituted Gbeta5-RGS dimers are similar to the native retinal complex in their behavior on gel-filtration and cation-exchange chromatographies and can be immunoprecipitated with either anti-Gbeta5 or anti-RGS7 antibodies. The specific Gbeta5-RGS7 interaction is determined by a distinct domain in RGS that has a striking homology to Ggamma subunits. Deletion of this domain prevents the RGS7-Gbeta5 binding, although the interaction with Galpha is retained. Substitution of the Ggamma-like domain of RGS7 with a portion of Ggamma1 changes its binding specificity from Gbeta5 to Gbeta1. The interaction of Gbeta5 with RGS7 blocked the binding of RGS7 to the Galpha subunit Galphao, indicating that Gbeta5 is a specific RGS inhibitor.  (+info)

Human molybdopterin synthase gene: identification of a bicistronic transcript with overlapping reading frames. (7/2686)

A universal molybdenum-containing cofactor (MoCo) is essential for the activity of all human molybdoenzymes, including sulphite oxidase. The free cofactor is highly unstable, and all organisms share a similar biosynthetic pathway. The involved enzymes exhibit homologies, even between bacteria and humans. We have exploited these homologies to isolate a cDNA for the heterodimeric molybdopterin (MPT)-synthase. This enzyme is necessary for the conversion of an unstable precursor into molybdopterin, the organic moiety of MoCo. The corresponding transcript shows a bicistronic structure, encoding the small and large subunits of the MPT-synthase in two different open reading frames (ORFs) that overlap by 77 nucleotides. In various human tissues, only one size of mRNA coinciding with the bicistronic transcript was detected. In vitro translation and mutagenesis experiments demonstrated that each ORF is translated independently, leading to the synthesis of a 10-kDa protein and a 21-kDa protein for the small and large subunits, respectively, and indicated that the 3'-proximal ORF of the bicistronic transcript is translated by leaky scanning.  (+info)

Evidence for and consequences of chronic heme deficiency in Belgrade rat reticulocytes. (8/2686)

The Belgrade rat has a microcytic, hypochromic anemia inherited as an autosomal recessive trait (gene symbol b). Transferrin-dependent iron uptake is defective because of a mutation in Nramp2 (now DMT1, also called DCT1), the protein responsible for endosomal iron efflux. Hence, Belgrade reticulocytes are iron deficient. We show that a chromatographic method is able to measure the amount of 'free' heme in reticulocytes. Most of the 'free' heme is the result of biosynthesis. Succinylacetone, an inhibitor of heme synthesis, decreases the level of 'free' heme and cycloheximide, an inhibitor of globin synthesis, increases the 'free' heme level. In a pulse-chase experiment with 59Fe-transferrin, the 'free' heme pool behaves as an intermediate, with a half-life of just over 2 h. Belgrade reticulocytes contain about 40% as much 'free' heme as do heterozygous or homozygous reticulocytes. This deficiency of 'free' heme slows initiation of translation in Belgrade reticulocytes by increasing the level of an inhibitor of initiation. Thus the Belgrade rat makes a whole animal model available with chronic heme deficiency.  (+info)

Flexi® Rabbit Reticulocyte Lysate System allows optimization of translation reactions for a range of parameters, including Mg(2+) and K(+) and DTT concentration.
Reticulocytes are immature red blood cells, typically composing about 1% of the red blood cells in the human body. In the process of erythropoiesis (red blood cell formation), reticulocytes develop and mature in the bone marrow and then circulate for about a day in the blood stream before developing into mature red blood cells. Like mature red blood cells, in mammals reticulocytes do not have a cell nucleus. They are called reticulocytes because of a reticular (mesh-like) network of ribosomal RNA that becomes visible under a microscope with certain stains such as new methylene blue and Romanowsky stain. To accurately measure reticulocyte counts, automated counters use a combination of laser excitation, detectors and a fluorescent dye that marks RNA and DNA (such as titan yellow or polymethine). Reticulocytes can be distinguished from other circulating cells because they emit a signal that is neither strong (like lymphocytes) nor weak (like red blood cells). Reticulocytes appear slightly bluer ...

2)Why were reticulocyte levels decreased when Hemoglobin was increased in the two tests allegedly collected/performed at altitude prior to the 2009 tour. This scenario is consistent with previous administration of stimulating agents such as EPO and or previous blood re-infusion. In the original post …. from October 16, 2008 the average reticulocyte levels are 1.1 but from May 18, 2009 the average reticulocyte levels are 0.6. This change/reduction in reticulocyte production during competition is not due to hemodilution however as percentage values for reticulocytes are not affected by this physiological response. This reduction reflects a blunted response to normal red blood cell production and can be achieved by micro-doping over an extended period of time or blood doping over shorter periods. ...

Glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) has long been known as a signaling component in insulin regulation of metabolism and, more recently, as a key part of the Wnt signaling pathway regulating cell proliferation, cell fate, and other processes during development. Unlike most other kinases, GSK3 is constitutively active and is regulated by inhibition. Full expression of this constitutive activity in the mammalian enzyme appears to require phosphorylation of a tyrosine residue in the activation loop of GSK3, which the enzyme accomplishes by intramolecular autophosphorylation, even though the kinase phosphorylates strictly serine and threonine residues on its exogenous substrates. Lochhead et al. explored the mechanism by which this switch in residue specificity is possible. Tagged GSK-3β synthesized in a rabbit reticulocyte lysate translation system showed rapid autophosphorylation that was inhibited by inhibitors of the molecular chaperone protein Hsp90. This chaperone-assisted tyrosine kinase ...

Adhesin proteins are used by Plasmodium parasites to bind and invade target cells. Hence, characterising molecules that participate in reticulocyte interaction is key to understanding the molecular basis of Plasmodium vivax invasion. This study focused on predicting functionally restricted regions of the P. vivax GPI-anchored micronemal antigen (PvGAMA) and characterising their reticulocyte binding activity. The pvgama gene was initially found in P. vivax VCG-I strain schizonts. According to the genetic diversity analysis, PvGAMA displayed a size polymorphism very common for antigenic P. vivax proteins. Two regions along the antigen sequence were highly conserved among species, having a negative natural selection signal. Interestingly, these regions revealed a functional role regarding preferential target cell adhesion. To our knowledge, this study describes PvGAMA reticulocyte binding properties for the first time. Conserved functional regions were predicted according to natural selection analysis and

The ability to transcribe and translate proteins in vitro is a valuable tool for probing protein structure and function, and the role of specific amino acid residues in protein activity. Large amounts of the protein of interest, with or without targeted mutations, can be produced much more quickly and can be radiolabeled to a much higher specific activity than in whole cells. Furthermore, the rabbit reticulocyte lysate system, as used for these studies, provides many of the eucaryotic post-translational modification activities, cofactors, hsp90, and other heat-shock proteins that are lacking in bacterial and yeast systems. Indeed, we found that when murine AhR and Arnt were separately translated in reticulocyte lysate and mixed together, TCDD binding and DRE binding of the resultant complex were very similar to that formed in mouse hepatoma cell cytosol. Coimmunoprecipitation of unliganded [35S]AhR with α-hsp90 antibody further indicates its comparability to the cytosolic AhR complex ...
A young red blood cell that usually remains in the bone marrow with only a few venturing out into the circulating blood. The number of reticulocytes in blood rises when red cell production is unusually vigorous, as after a major bleeding episode or after the bone marrow has been suppressed and is regenerating. The reticulocyte is so named because it has a fine reticulum representing ribosomal remains. ...

Clone REA902 recognizes the human CD71 antigen, a transferrin receptor, which is essential for iron transport into proliferating cells. CD71 is expressed on marrow stromal cells (MSCs) from bone marrow, on activated T and B lymphocytes, macrophages, and all proliferating cells. It is upregulated on lymphocytes during proliferative responses to antigens or mitogens but is not expressed on resting lymphocytes. CD71 is present on reticulocytes and erythroid progenitors in fetal liver, cord blood, and peripheral blood, yet it is lost as these differentiate to mature erythrocytes. Additional information: Clone REA902 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors. - España

Does anyone use DNA binding proteins expressed in rabbit reticulocyte lysates to do gel shift assays? This system would allow easy and quick expression of a suspected DNA binding protein that I could study (much easier than trying to express and purify the protein). I would specifically like to know if the other proteins in the system or maybe even the DNA added would somehow interfere in a gel shift assay (although I guess its no different than using cell/nuclear extracts).

Author Summary Malaria, caused by the Apicomplexan parasites Plasmodium spp., is a deadly disease which poses a huge health and economic burden over many populations in the world, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. To design new intervention strategies and to improve upon existing drugs against malaria, it is useful to understand the biochemistry of the Plasmodium parasite and its metabolic interplay with the host. Some species of Plasmodium such as P. vivax grow exclusively in reticulocytes (immature erythrocytes) whereas others e.g. P. falciparum will also readily multiply in mature erythrocytes. We asked the questions, do these two classes of host cell offer different resources for parasite survival and could these resources influence antimalarial drug efficacy? We used metabolomics to compare rodent reticulocytes and mature erythrocytes and identified that the metabolome of the former is more diverse and enriched. Gene disruption in the reticulocyte preferring rodent malaria parasite P. berghei
The quantity of circulating reticulocytes is an important indicator of erythropoietic activity in response to a wide range of haematological pathologies. While most modern laboratories use flow cytometry to quantify reticulocytes, most field laboratories still rely on subvital staining. The specialist subvital stains, New Methylene Blue (NMB) and Brilliant Crésyl Blue are often difficult to procure, toxic, and show inconsistencies between batches. Here we demonstrate the utility of Giemsas stain (commonly used microbiology and parasitology) in a subvital manner to provide an accurate method to visualize and count reticulocytes in blood samples from normal and malaria-infected individuals.
This test measures the rate at which reticulocytes (immature red blood cells) are made in the bone marrow and enter the bloodstream. A reticulocyte count can provide information about a childs anemia.
When I made it back to Kansas City that evening, Karen informed me that they had performed a reticulocyte count for Landon. Reticulocytes are the precursors to red blood cells. When your body doesnt have enough red blood cells, your bone marrow should respond by making more and the overall population of cells should be younger. Normal levels in an infant should be between 2 and 6 percent and that number should rise significantly in an anemic baby. Despite being very anemic, Landons reticulocyte count was .5%. We agreed to a blood transfusion and waited for test results as to why his count was so low. Doctors determined that his bone marrow was not producing red cells anymore. We arent sure if this is due to a neurologic dysfunction or inability of his gut to absorb nutrients but the end result is essentially the same. If his body does not respond, he will slowly become more and more anemic until he becomes weak and passes away. The reality of this is that transfused red blood cells only ...

The heme-regulated enkaryotic initiation factor-2α (eIF-2α) kinase, also called the heme-regulated inhibitor (HRI), is a key regulator of protein synthesis in mammalian reticulocyte. HRI is almost undetectable in blood samples of normal rabbits and it increases by 12-15-fold in the reticulocytes of anemic rabbits. In order to determine if such an increase in the quantity of HRI is gradual during anemia, and if it could be an indicator of anemia, we have carried out a detailed analysis on the expression of HRI and its eIF-2α kinase activity in rabbit reticulocyte lysates during various stages of acetylphenylhydrazine (APH)-induced anemia. In a 9-day schedule of induction of anemia, using an anti-HRI monoclonal antibody, HRI was detectable immediately after completion of fourth injection (day 5) and it increased gradually during the entire period reaching its maximum (24-fold) on day 9. Furthermore, when rabbits recovered from anemia due to individual response to the drug, quantity of HRI ...

1. The identification, isolation and characterisation of a mammalian mRNA required choice of a cell type which synthesises only one or a few proteins. The mammalian reticulocyte synthesises globin almost exclusively. This cell type can be isolated in large quantities and has low endogenous ribonuclease activity, thus making it a suitable system for the isolation of large amounts of undegraded RNA. Preliminary experiments indicated that the reticulocyte RNA component sedimenting at 9s had many of the characteristics expected of the globin mRNAs. 2. The characterisation of an mRNA which can only be labelled to a small extent in vivo and which is only about l of the total RNA requires the development of large-scale isolation procedures. Preliminary experiments designed to circumvent the difficulty of labelling reticulocyte 9s RNA in vivo involved the isolation of uridine-9s RNA from cultures of 14 day mouse embryo liver cells. The technique of preparative polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was ...

In vitro transcription/translation (IVTT) systems are widely used in proteomics. For clinical applications, mammalian systems are preferred for protein folding and activity; however, the level of protein obtained is low. A new system extracted from human cells (1-Step Human Coupled IVT (HCIVT)) has the potential to overcome this problem and deliver high yields of protein expressed in a human milieu.. Western blots and self-assembled protein microarrays were used to test the efficiency of protein synthesis by HCIVT compared to rabbit reticulocyte lysate (RRL). The arrays were also used to measure the immune response obtained from serum of patients exposed to pathogens or vaccine.. HCIVT performed better than RRL in all experiments. The yield of protein synthesized in HCIVT is more than ten times higher than RRL, in both Western blot and protein microarrays. Moreover, HCIVT showed a robust lot-to-lot reproducibility. In immune assays, the signals of many antigens were detected only in ...
We describe a new technique for detecting prenyl anchors in N-terminally glutathione S-transferase (GST)-labeled constructs of target proteins expressed in vitro in rabbit reticulocyte lysate and incubated with 3H-labeled anchor precursors. Alternatively, hemagglutinin (HA)-labeled constructs expressed in vivo (in cell culture) can be used. For registration of the radioactive marker, we propose to use a thin layer chromatography (TLC) analyzer. As a control, the protein yield is tested by Western blotting with anti-GST- (or anti-HA-) antibodies on the same membrane that has been previously used for TLC-scanning. These protocols have been tested with Rap2A, v-Ki-Ras2 and RhoA (variant RhoA63L) including the necessary controls. We show directly that RasD2 is a farnesylation target.. ...
