Identification of a Novel Site within G Protein Subunits Important for Specificity of Receptor-G Protein Interaction

Several domains of G protein alpha subunits are implicated in the control of receptor-G protein coupling specificity. Among these are the extreme N-and C-termini, the alpha4/beta6-loops, and the loop linking the N-terminal alpha-helix to the...

The negative role of cyclin G in ATM-dependent p53 activation

Cyclin G is one of the earliest p53 target genes to be identified, but its function in the p53 pathway has been elusive. Although the precise mechanisms of cyclin G in this novel network have not been explored, recent studies have demonstrated that...

Specific Inhibition of Nuclear Factor-B-Dependent Inflammatory Responses by Cell Type-Specific Mechanisms upon A2A Adenosine Receptor Gene Transfer

Adenosine is a potent inhibitor of inflammatory processes, and the A(2A) adenosine receptor (A(2A)AR) plays a key nonredundant role as a suppresser of inflammatory responses in vivo. In this study, we demonstrate that increasing A(2A)AR gene...

Identification of PDZK4, a novel human gene with PDZ domains, that is upregulated in synovial sarcomas

In an earlier study designed to investigate molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis in synovial sarcomas (SSs), we applied a cDNA microarray to detect human genes with significantly increased expression in SS cells. Among the genes selected in this...

Rapid vesicular translocation and insertion of TRP channels

The broadly expressed transient receptor potential (TRP) family of ion channels are permeant to cations, most resulting in increased intracellular calcium. However, their regulation and gating is not well understood. Here, we report that growth...

SMYD3 encodes a histone methyltransferase involved in the proliferation of cancer cells

Colorectal and hepatocellular carcinomas are some of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide, but the mechanisms that underly these malignancies are not fully understood. Here we report the identification of SMYD3, a gene that is over-expressed...

ASC is a Bax adaptor and regulates the p53-Bax mitochondrial apoptosis pathway

The apoptosis-associated speck-like protein (ASC) is an unusual adaptor protein that contains the Pyrin/PAAD death domain in addition to the CARD protein-protein interaction domain. Here, we present evidence that ASC can function as an adaptor...

NGF-induced axon growth is mediated by localized inactivation of GSK-3beta and functions of the microtubule plus end binding protein APC

Little is known about how nerve growth factor (NGF) signaling controls the regulated assembly of microtubules that underlies axon growth. Here we demonstrate that a tightly regulated and localized activation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) at...

Hot-spot residue in small heat-shock protein 22 causes distal motor neuropathy

Distal hereditary motor neuropathies are pure motor disorders of the peripheral nervous system resulting in severe atrophy and wasting of distal limb muscles. In two pedigrees with distal hereditary motor neuropathy type II linked to chromosome...

The leukemic fusion gene AML1-MDS1-EVI1 suppresses CEBPA in acute myeloid leukemia by activation of Calreticulin

The leukemic fusion gene AML1-MDS1-EVI1 (AME) encodes a chimeric transcription factor that results from the t(3,21)(q26;q22) translocation seen in patients with acute myeloid leukemia, with therapy-related myelodysplastic syndrome, or with chronic...
