Analysis of intracellular storage and regulated secretion of three von Willebrands disease-causing variants of von Willebrand factor

The rapid exocytosis of von Willebrand factor (VWF) in response to vascular injury can be attributed to the fact that VWF is stored in the Weibel-Palade bodies (WPBs) of endothelial cells. We describe a system for examining the ability of VWF to...

Activation of resting human primary T cells with chimeric receptors: costimulation from CD28, inducible costimulator, CD134, and CD137 in series with signals from the TCRzeta chain

Chimeric receptors that include CD28 signaling in series with TCRzeta in the same receptor have been demonstrated to activate prestimulated human primary T cells more efficiently than a receptor providing TCRzeta signaling alone. We examined whether...

Dual-specificity phosphatase 5 (DUSP5) as a direct transcriptional target of tumor suppressor p53

Dual-specificity phosphatase 5 (DUSP5), a VH1-like enzyme that hydrolyses nuclear substrates phosphorylated on both tyrosine and serine/threonine residues, has a potential role in deactivation of mitogen- or stress-activated protein kinases. Using...

HAX-1, identified by differential display reverse transcription polyerase chain reaction, is overexpressed in lesional psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by epidermal hyperplasia and an inflammatory infiltrate. The normal differentiation from basal to granular keratinocytes with subsequent apoptosis and cornification is disturbed in the...

Involvement of Crm 1 in hepatitis B virus X protein-induced aberrant centriole replication and abnormal mitotic spindles

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) includes an X gene (HBx gene) that plays a critical role in liver carcinogenesis. Because centrosome abnormalities are associated with genomic instability in most human cancer cells, we examined the effect of HBx on...

Lymphotoxin and lipopolysaccharide induce NF-kappaB-p52 generation by a co-translational mechanism

The 'classical' NF-kappaB activation pathway proceeds via IkappaB kinase (IKK)-beta/gamma-mediated phosphorylation, induced ubiquitination and the degradation of small IkappaBs. An alternative, NF-kappaB-inducing kinase and IKK-alpha-dependent...

Novel cell specific and dominant negative anti apoptotic roles of p73 in transformed leukemia cells

Although extensive homology exists between related genes p53 and p73, recent data suggest that the family members have divergent roles. We demonstrate that the differential regulatory roles of p53 family member p73 are highly cell-context and...

Human parvovirus B19 nonstructural protein (NS1) induces cell cycle arrest at G1 phase

Human parvovirus B19 infects predominantly erythroid precursor cells, leading to inhibition of erythropoiesis. This erythroid cell damage is mediated by the viral nonstructural protein 1 (NS1) through an apoptotic mechanism. We previously...

NPC1 and NPC2 regulate cholesterol homeostasis through generation of LDL cholesterol-derived oxysterols

Mutations in the Niemann-Pick disease genes cause lysosomal cholesterol accumulation and impaired low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol esterification. These findings have been attributed to a block in cholesterol movement from lysosomes to the...

YY1 transcription factor down-regulates expression of CCR5, a major co-receptor for HIV-1

Expression of CCR5, a major coreceptor for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), is regulated by a number of transcription factors. Here we report that the YY1 transcription factor down-regulates CCR5 promoter activity and that overexpression...
