Phosphorylation of the cap-binding protein eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E by protein kinase Mnk1 in vivo. (1/8966)

Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) binds to the mRNA 5' cap and brings the mRNA into a complex with other protein synthesis initiation factors and ribosomes. The activity of mammalian eIF4E is important for the translation of capped mRNAs and is thought to be regulated by two mechanisms. First, eIF4E is sequestered by binding proteins, such as 4EBP1, in quiescent cells. Mitogens induce the release of eIF4E by stimulating the phosphorylation of 4EBP1. Second, mitogens and stresses induce the phosphorylation of eIF4E at Ser 209, increasing the affinity of eIF4E for capped mRNA and for an associated scaffolding protein, eIF4G. We previously showed that a mitogen- and stress-activated kinase, Mnk1, phosphorylates eIF4E in vitro at the physiological site. Here we show that Mnk1 regulates eIF4E phosphorylation in vivo. Mnk1 binds directly to eIF4G and copurifies with eIF4G and eIF4E. We identified activating phosphorylation sites in Mnk1 and developed dominant-negative and activated mutants. Expression of dominant-negative Mnk1 reduces mitogen-induced eIF4E phosphorylation, while expression of activated Mnk1 increases basal eIF4E phosphorylation. Activated mutant Mnk1 also induces extensive phosphorylation of eIF4E in cells overexpressing 4EBP1. This suggests that phosphorylation of eIF4E is catalyzed by Mnk1 or a very similar kinase in cells and is independent of other mitogenic signals that release eIF4E from 4EBP1.  (+info)

Characterization of ZO-2 as a MAGUK family member associated with tight as well as adherens junctions with a binding affinity to occludin and alpha catenin. (2/8966)

ZO-2, a member of the MAGUK family, was thought to be specific for tight junctions (TJs) in contrast to ZO-1, another MAGUK family member, which is localized at TJs and adherens junctions (AJs) in epithelial and nonepithelial cells, respectively. Mouse ZO-2 cDNA was isolated, and a specific polyclonal antibody was generated using corresponding synthetic peptides as antigens. Immunofluorescence microscopy with this polyclonal antibody revealed that, similarly to ZO-1, in addition to TJs in epithelial cells, ZO-2 was also concentrated at AJs in nonepithelial cells such as fibroblasts and cardiac muscle cells lacking TJs. When NH2-terminal dlg-like and COOH-terminal non-dlg-like domains of ZO-2 (N-ZO-2 and C-ZO-2, respectively) were separately introduced into cultured cells, N-ZO-2 was colocalized with endogenous ZO-1/ZO-2, i.e. at TJs in epithelial cells and at AJs in non-epithelial cells, whereas C-ZO-2 was distributed along actin filaments. Consistently, occludin as well as alpha catenin directly bound to N-ZO-2 as well as the NH2-terminal dlg-like portion of ZO-1 (N-ZO-1) in vitro. Furthermore, immunoprecipitation experiments revealed that the second PDZ domain of ZO-2 was directly associated with N-ZO-1. These findings indicated that ZO-2 forms a complex with ZO-1/occludin or ZO-1/alpha catenin to establish TJ or AJ domains, respectively.  (+info)

Studies on a nonpolysomal ribonucleoprotein coding for myosin heavy chains from chick embryonic muscles. (3/8966)

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)

Clustering of AMPA receptors by the synaptic PDZ domain-containing protein PICK1. (4/8966)

Synaptic clustering of neurotransmitter receptors is crucial for efficient signal transduction and integration in neurons. PDZ domain-containing proteins such as PSD-95/SAP90 interact with the intracellular C termini of a variety of receptors and are thought to be important in the targeting and anchoring of receptors to specific synapses. Here, we show that PICK1 (protein interacting with C kinase), a PDZ domain-containing protein, interacts with the C termini of alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-isoxazole-4-propionic acid (AMPA) receptors in vitro and in vivo. In neurons, PICK1 specifically colocalizes with AMPA receptors at excitatory synapses. Furthermore, PICK1 induces clustering of AMPA receptors in heterologous expression systems. These results suggest that PICK1 may play an important role in the modulation of synaptic transmission by regulating the synaptic targeting of AMPA receptors.  (+info)

Purification of gibberellic acid-induced lysosomes from wheat aleurone cells. (5/8966)

Using isopycnic density gradient centrifugation, lysosomes were concentrated in a single region of a sucrose-Ficoll gradient (p = 1-10 g cm-3), well separated from most other cell organelles. Gibberellic acid-induced lysosomes were found to be rich in alpha-amylase and protease but not ribonuclease. The lysosomal band also contained a majority of the NADH2-cytochrome c reductase, a marker enzyme for endoplasmic reticulum, found in the gradient. Examination of electron micrographs revealed that a purified band of lyosomes contained at least 3 vesicle types, ranging in size from 0-1 to 0-5 mum. The significance of these findings to proposed mechanisms of action of gibberellic acid is discussed.  (+info)

Treatment of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats with vanadate and phlorizin prevents the over-expression of the liver insulin receptor gene. (6/8966)

Administration of vanadate, an insulinomimetic agent, has been shown to normalize the increased number of insulin receptors in the liver of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. In the present study, the effects of vanadate on various steps of expression of the liver insulin receptor gene in diabetic rats have been analyzed and compared with those of phlorizin, a glucopenic drug devoid of insulinomimetic properties. Livers of rats killed 23 days after streptozotocin injection showed a 30-40% increase in the number of cell surface and intracellular insulin receptors, a 50-90% increase in the levels of 9.5 and 7.5 kb insulin receptor mRNA species, and a 20% decrease in the relative abundance of the A (exon 11-) insulin receptor mRNA isotype. Daily administration of vanadate or phlorizin from day 5 to day 23 prevented the increase in insulin receptor number and mRNA level, and vanadate treatment also normalized receptor mRNA isotype expression. Unlike observations in vivo, vanadate and phlorizin differentially affected the expression of the insulin receptor gene in Fao hepatoma cells. Vanadate treatment (0.5 mmol/l for 4 h) decreased the levels of the 9.5 and 7.5 kb insulin receptor transcripts by at least twofold, without affecting the relative abundance of the A insulin receptor mRNA isotype. In contrast, phlorizin treatment (5 mmol/l for 4 h) slightly increased or did not affect the levels of the 9.5 and 7.5 kb insulin receptor transcripts respectively, and increased by twofold the relative expression of the A insulin receptor mRNA isotype. It is suggested that, although mediated in part by a reversal of hyperglycemia, normalization of liver insulin receptor gene expression by vanadate treatment in diabetic rats may also involve a direct inhibitory effect of this drug on gene expression.  (+info)

Redundant systems of phosphatidic acid biosynthesis via acylation of glycerol-3-phosphate or dihydroxyacetone phosphate in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (7/8966)

In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae lipid particles harbor two acyltransferases, Gat1p and Slc1p, which catalyze subsequent steps of acylation required for the formation of phosphatidic acid. Both enzymes are also components of the endoplasmic reticulum, but this compartment contains additional acyltransferase(s) involved in the biosynthesis of phosphatidic acid (K. Athenstaedt and G. Daum, J. Bacteriol. 179:7611-7616, 1997). Using the gat1 mutant strain TTA1, we show here that Gat1p present in both subcellular fractions accepts glycerol-3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate as a substrate. Similarly, the additional acyltransferase(s) present in the endoplasmic reticulum can acylate both precursors. In contrast, yeast mitochondria harbor an enzyme(s) that significantly prefers dihydroxyacetone phosphate as a substrate for acylation, suggesting that at least one additional independent acyltransferase is present in this organelle. Surprisingly, enzymatic activity of 1-acyldihydroxyacetone phosphate reductase, which is required for the conversion of 1-acyldihydroxyacetone phosphate to 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate (lysophosphatidic acid), is detectable only in lipid particles and the endoplasmic reticulum and not in mitochondria. In vivo labeling of wild-type cells with [2-3H, U-14C]glycerol revealed that both glycerol-3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate can be incorporated as a backbone of glycerolipids. In the gat1 mutant and the 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase slc1 mutant, the dihydroxyacetone phosphate pathway of phosphatidic acid biosynthesis is slightly preferred as compared to the wild type. Thus, mutations of the major acyltransferases Gat1p and Slc1p lead to an increased contribution of mitochondrial acyltransferase(s) to glycerolipid synthesis due to their substrate preference for dihydroxyacetone phosphate.  (+info)

Protein ProQ influences osmotic activation of compatible solute transporter ProP in Escherichia coli K-12. (8/8966)

ProP is an osmoregulatory compatible solute transporter in Escherichia coli K-12. Mutation proQ220::Tn5 decreased the rate constant for and the extent of ProP activation by an osmotic upshift but did not alter proP transcription or the ProP protein level. Allele proQ220::Tn5 was isolated, and the proQ sequence was determined. Locus proQ is upstream from prc (tsp) at 41.2 centisomes on the genetic map. The proQ220::Tn5 and prc phenotypes were different, however. Gene proQ is predicted to encode a 232-amino-acid, basic, hydrophilic protein (molecular mass, 25,876 Da; calculated isoelectric point, 9.66; 32% D, E, R, or K; 54.5% polar amino acids). The insertion of PCR-amplified proQ into vector pBAD24 produced a plasmid containing the wild-type proQ open reading frame, the expression of which yielded a soluble protein with an apparent molecular mass of 30 kDa. Antibodies raised against the overexpressed ProQ protein detected cross-reactive material in proQ+ bacteria but not in proQ220::Tn5 bacteria. ProQ may be a structural element that influences the osmotic activation of ProP at a posttranslational level.  (+info)

In order to benefit maximally from large scale molecular biology data generated by recent developments, it is important to proceed in an organized manner by developing databases, interfaces, data visualization and data interpretation tools. Protein subcellular localization and microarray gene expression are two of such fields that require immense computational effort before being used as a roadmap for the experimental biologist. Protein subcellular localization is important for elucidating protein function.

Title: A Research on Bioinformatics Prediction of Protein Subcellular Localization. VOLUME: 4 ISSUE: 3. Author(s):Gang Fang, Guirong Tao and Shemin Zhang. Affiliation:Department of Life Science, Xian University of Arts and Science, Xian 710065, China.. Keywords:Bioinformatics, prediction, protein subcellular localization, localizome, proteomics, database. Abstract: Protein subcellular localization is one of the key characteristic to understand its biological function. Proteins are transported to specific organelles and suborganelles after they are synthesized. They take part in cell activity and function efficiently when correctly localized. Inaccurate subcellular localization will have great impact on cellular function. Prediction of protein subcellular localization is one of the important areas in protein function research. Now it becomes the hot issue in bioinformatics. In this review paper, the recent progress on bioinformatics research of protein subcellular localization and its prospect ...
Experimentally determining the subcellular localization of a protein can be a laborious and time consuming task. Immunolabeling or tagging (such as with a green fluorescent protein) to view localization using fluorescence microscope are often used. A high throughput alternative is to use prediction. Through the development of new approaches in computer science, coupled with an increased dataset of proteins of known localization, computational tools can now provide fast and accurate localization predictions for many organisms. This has resulted in subcellular localization prediction becoming one of the challenges being successfully aided by bioinformatics, and machine learning. Many prediction methods now exceed the accuracy of some high-throughput laboratory methods for the identification of protein subcellular localization.[1] Particularly, some predictors have been developed[2] that can be used to deal with proteins that may simultaneously exist, or move between, two or more different ...
Adjustments in protein subcellular localization and large quantity are central to biological regulation in eukaryotic cells. open-reading frame (ORF) is usually individually tagged, generating a full-length protein with a COOH-terminus GFP fusion, whose expression is usually driven by the endogenous ORF promoter (Huh 2003). We worked with the set of 4144 strains from the original collection previously annotated as having a visible GFP signal and representing 71% of the yeast proteome. We used this collection to measure the subcellular localization and large quantity of yeast proteins at the single-cell level in several conditions in period classes of up to 11 human resources (Chong 2015). A true number of existing sources present images of yeast cells from large-scale research. Some of these research assess phenotypes linked with evaluation of a little amount of morphologic features or indicators in a collection of mutants. Sources that home this type of data consist of SCMD (Saito 2004) and ...

1. An attempt was made to study the rate of synthesis as well as the distribution of RNA in the various cellular fractions in the livers and kidneys of normal and castrated mice. 2. The tissue was fractionated by the procedure of Blobel & Potter (1967). By using this method it was not possible to find any pronounced difference in the relative proportions of RNA in isolated subcellular fractions when kidneys from normal and castrated mice were compared. On the other hand there was an indication of a shift toward the bound ribosomes in livers from normal mice in comparison with livers from castrated mice. 3. Disappearance of the radioactivity followed the pattern of the first-order reaction. Comparing the half-lives of RNA in liver and kidneys it was found that in the latter in both groups of animals half-lives were shorter no matter which cellular fraction was studied. 4. The half-lives for total homogenate RNA, total ribosomal RNA and low-molecular-weight RNA from kidneys of castrated mice were ...

Due to the limited knowledge of the enzymes involved in the formation of LY404039, tissue homogenates were used in these studies instead of subcellular fractions to increase the possibility the enzymes involved would be represented. However, because these were human tissue preparations, the quality and treatment of the tissue, including the time interval between receipt and processing of the tissue, may be critical to the activity of these enzymes and may explain the observed large differences in Vmax values between donors (Tables 2 and 3). In accordance with this concept, the human plasma was freshly prepared and the range in Vmax values was substantially reduced.. Prior to incubations to establish kinetic parameters for pomaglumetad methionil hydrolysis, linear rate conditions for LY404039 formation were determined for each of the matrices by incubating multiple concentrations of pomaglumetad methionil, with varying protein concentrations of each matrix for increasing periods of time.

0113] Free Neu5Gc can be taken up by human epithelial cells from an exogenous source and incorporated into different subcellular fractions. Evidence was presented suggesting that the small amounts of Neu5Gc found in some human tissues originated from dietary sources and showed that human Caco-2 cells (human epithelial cells from a primary colon carcinoma) in culture could metabolically incorporate free Neu5Gc, as determined by a Western blot of a total homogenate, using and anti-Neu5Gc antibody. Increasing incorporation of Neu5Gc was found in the total homogenate fraction of the cells over time, with the highest level reached after incubation with 3 mM Neu5Gc for 3 days. Moreover, Western blotting with an anti Neu5Gc antibody demonstrated metabolic incorporation of Neu5Gc into glycoproteins of these cells. The partitioning of the exogenous Neu5Gc into different subcellular fractions of these cells has now been studied. Prior to feeding, Caco-2 cells were split and cultured in human serum instead ...
Kernel discriminant analysis (KDA) is a dimension reduction and classification algorithm based on nonlinear kernel trick, which can be novelly used to treat high-dimensional and complex biological data before undergoing classification processes such as protein subcellular localization. Kernel parameters make a great impact on the performance of the KDA model. Specifically, for KDA with the popular Gaussian kernel, to select the scale parameter is still a challenging problem. Thus, this paper introduces the KDA method and proposes a new method for Gaussian kernel parameter selection depending on the fact that the differences between reconstruction errors of edge normal samples and those of interior normal samples should be maximized for certain suitable kernel parameters. Experiments with various standard data sets of protein subcellular localization show that the overall accuracy of protein classification prediction with KDA is much higher than that without KDA. Meanwhile, the kernel parameter of KDA
Pattern recognition and classification of images are key challenges throughout the life sciences. We combined two approaches for large-scale classification of fluorescence microscopy images. First, using the publicly available data set from the Cell Atlas of the Human Protein Atlas (HPA), we integrated an image-classification task into a mainstream video game (EVE Online) as a mini-game, named Project Discovery. Participation by 322,006 gamers over 1 year provided nearly 33 million classifications of subcellular localization patterns, including patterns that were not previously annotated by the HPA. Second, we used deep learning to build an automated Localization Cellular Annotation Tool (Loc-CAT). This tool classifies proteins into 29 subcellular localization patterns and can deal efficiently with multi-localization proteins, performing robustly across different cell types. Combining the annotations of gamers and deep learning, we applied transfer learning to create a boosted learner that can ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The subcellular compartmentalization of arginine metabolizing enzymes and their role in endothelial dysfunction. AU - Chen, Feng. AU - Lucas, Rudolf. AU - Fulton, David. N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2014 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - The endothelial production of nitric oxide (NO) mediates endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation and restrains vascular inflammation, smooth muscle cell proliferation, and platelet aggregation. Impaired production of NO is a hallmark of endothelial dysfunction and promotes the development of cardiovascular disease. In endothelial cells, NO is generated by endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) through the conversion of its substrate, L-arginine to L-citrulline. Reduced access to L-arginine has been proposed as a major mechanism underlying reduced eNOS activity and NO production in cardiovascular disease.

Fresh anterior pituitary glands from beef and pig were separated by differential centrifugation into subcellular fractions. Nuclei and debris were obtained at 700 g for 15 minutes, secretory granules at 7000 g for 20 minutes, mitochondria at 34,000 g for 15 minutes, and microsomes at 78,000 g for 3 hours. Electron micrographs were taken of the individual fractions. Each fraction was analyzed for nitrogen, pentosenucleic acid (PNA), and phospholipide. Beef and pig anterior lobes were quite similar in their intracellular composition as seen in the subcellular fractions. Succinic dehydrogenase was localized in mitochondria, while alkaline phosphatase was concentrated in the microsomes. A proteinase with pH optimum at 8.2 was exclusively localized. in microsomal and supernatant fractions. Acid phosphatase, acid ribonuclease, and acid proteinase were distributed among the subcellular fractions in another pattern, indicating the presence of a particle type distinct from mitochondria and microsomes. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - SecA2 is distinct from SecA in immunogenic specificity, subcellular distribution and requirement for membrane anchoring in Streptococcus parasanguis. AU - Chen, Qiang. AU - Wu, Hui. AU - Kumar, Reetu. AU - Peng, Zhixiang. AU - Fives-Taylor, Paula M.. PY - 2006/11. Y1 - 2006/11. N2 - A secA2 gene is present in the genomes of a wide variety of Gram-positive bacteria. In Streptococcus parasanguis, a primary colonizer of the tooth surface, secA2 is involved in the secretion of a small group of proteins including the fimbrial adhesin, Fap1. Although the substrate specificity is different, SecA2 is predicted to be similar to SecA in structure and function based on the homology between these two proteins. In this study, polyclonal antibodies against SecA2 and SecA did not cross-react with each other, indicating that these two proteins possessed distinct immunogenic epitopes. Fractionation analysis demonstrated that SecA2 was not evenly distributed between the cytoplasmic membrane and ...
Eukaryotic cells contain a huge variety of internally specialized subcellular compartments. Stoichiogenomics aims to reveal patterns of elements usage in biological macromolecules. However, the stoichiogenomic characteristics and how they adapt to various subcellular microenvironments are still unknown. Here we first updated the definition of stoichiogenomics. Then we applied it to subcellular research, and detected distinctive nitrogen content of nuclear and hydrogen, sulfur content of extracellular proteomes. Specially, we found that acidic amino acids (AAs) content of cytoskeletal proteins is the highest. The increased charged AAs are mainly caused by the eukaryotic originated cytoskeletal proteins. Functional subdivision of the cytoskeleton showed that activation, binding/association, and complexes are the three largest functional categories. Electrostatic interaction analysis showed an increased electrostatic interaction between both primary sequences and PPI interfaces of 3D structures, in the
These intriguing results compelled us to develop a wide range of analytical tools to better study the intricacies of cellular biosynthetic machinery. We have perfected non-aqueous subcellular fractionation techniques in order to separate chloroplasts and vacuoles from cytosol. We are operating a metabolite profiling system, using GC-MS, which allows us to distinguish among large numbers of metabolites within each of these samples (subcellular fractions or tissue samples). In excess of 300 compounds can be profiled in this way , 100 of these compounds having known chemical structures. A further experimental development that we are exploring is the use of chemically-inducible promoters to drive transgene expression in a controlled manner in order to study perturbations of metabolism on a temporal basis. In recent years we have additionally established an RT-PCR platform for tomato transcription factors and sensitive methods for following the metabolism of stable isotope labeled substrate and an ...
Cytokinin dehydrogenase (CKX; EC degrades cytokinin hormones in plants. There are several differently targeted isoforms of CKX in plant cells. While most CKX enzymes appear to be localized in the apoplast or vacuoles, there is generally only one CKX per plant genome that lacks a translocation signal and presumably functions in the cytosol. The only extensively characterized maize CKX is the apoplastic ZmCKX1; a maize gene encoding a non-secreted CKX has not previously been cloned or characterized. Thus, the aim of this work was to characterize the maize non-secreted CKX gene (ZmCKX10), elucidate the subcellular localization of ZmCKX10, and compare its biochemical properties with those of ZmCKX1. Expression profiling of ZmCKX1 and ZmCKX10 was performed in maize tissues to determine their transcript abundance and organ-specific expression. For determination of the subcellular localization, the CKX genes were fused with green fluorescent protein (GFP) and overexpressed in tomato hairy ...

The distribution of survival times of rats subjected to acceleration stress of 20 Gz conforms to the Roginsky-Zeldovich or Elovich equation. This equation is derived from the hypothesis of electron or ion conduction across an activation energy barrier at the surface of a cell or subcellular particle, which suggests that tolerance to this acceleration stress is dependent upon such a biophysical process.

The more proteins diverged in sequence, the more difficult it becomes for bioinformatics to infer similarities of protein function and structure from sequence. The precise thresholds used in automated genome annotations depend on the particular aspect of protein function transferred by homology. Here, we presented the first large-scale analysis of the relation between sequence similarity and identity in subcellular localization. Three results stood out: (1) The subcellular compartment is generally more conserved than what might have been expected given that short sequence motifs like nuclear localization signals can alter the native compartment; (2) the sequence conservation of localization is similar between different compartments; and (3) it is similar to the conservation of structure and enzymatic activity. In particular, we found the transition between the regions of conserved and nonconserved localization to be very sharp, although the thresholds for conservation were less well defined than ...
Systems Biology requires comprehensive systematic data on all aspects and levels of biological organization and function. In addition to information on the sequence, structure, activities and binding interactions of all biological macromolecules, the creation of accurate predictive models of cell behaviour will require detailed information on the distribution of those molecules within cells and the ways in which those distributions change over the cell cycle and in response to mutations or external stimuli. Current information on subcellular location in protein databases is limited to unstructured text descriptions or sets of terms assigned by human curators. These entries do not permit basic operations that are common to other biological databases, such as measurement of the degree of similarity between the distributions of two proteins, and they are not able to fully capture the complexity of protein patterns that can be observed. The field of location proteomics seeks to provide automated, ...
Chlorotrifluoroethene is nephrotoxic in rats, and glutathione S-transferase-catalyzed S-(2-chloro-1,1,2-trifluorethyl)glutathione (CTFG) formation is the initial step in its bioactivation. CTFG biosynthesis and the activities of cytosolic and microsomal glutathione S-transferases were measured in rat and human hepatocytes and in human hepatoma-derived Hep G2 cells. Hepatocytes of , or = 88% viability were obtained from rat or human liver slices by collagenase or collagenase+dispase digestion, respectively. Hep G2 cells were grown in modified Earles medium supplemented with 10% (v/v) fetal calf serum. Cells and subcellular fractions were exposed to chlorotrifluoroethene, and CTFG formation was quantified by HPLC. Both human liver and Hep G2 cell subcellular fractions catalyzed CTFG formation, and human and rat microsomal fractions exhibited higher specific activities than cytosolic fractions with chlorotrifluoroethene as the substrate. Time-dependent formation of CTFG was observed in all cell ...

Ive fractionated some brain tissue using a kit from invitrogen which involves using different buffers and centrifugation speeds on the brain homogenate to fractionate the samples into a nuclear, cytosolic, cytoskeletal and membrane fraction. I confirmed fractionation had worked by running the fractions on a gel and western blotting for cytochrome C (membrane) NeuN (nuclear marker specific for neurons)and neurofilaments (cytoskeletal fraction). These gave the expected results - but when I blotted for my protein of interest - which by microscopy is both nuclear and cytoplasmic - it appeared in every fraction except the nuclear fraction ...

NF-kappa-B is a pleiotropic transcription factor which is present in almost all cell types and is involved in many biological processed such as inflammation, immunity, differentiation, cell growth, tumorigenesis and apoptosis. NF-kappa-B is a homo- or heterodimeric complex formed by the Rel-like domain-containing proteins RELA/p65, RELB, NFKB1/p105, NFKB1/p50, REL and NFKB2/p52 and the heterodimeric p65-p50 complex appears to be most abundant one. The dimers bind at kappa-B sites in the DNA of their target genes and the individual dimers have distinct preferences for different kappa-B sites that they can bind with distinguishable affinity and specificity. Different dimer combinations act as transcriptional activators or repressors, respectively. NF-kappa-B is controlled by various mechanisms of post-translational modification and subcellular compartmentalization as well as by interactions with other cofactors or corepressors. NF-kappa-B complexes are held in the cytoplasm in an inactive state ...
