BPAG1n4 is essential for retrograde axonal transport in sensory neurons

Disruption of the BPAG1 (bullous pemphigoid antigen 1) gene results in progressive deterioration in motor function and devastating sensory neurodegeneration in the null mice. We have previously demonstrated that BPAG1n1 and BPAG1n3 play important...

Src family protein-tyrosine kinases alter the function of PTEN to regulate phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/AKT cascades

Src family protein-tyrosine kinases, which play an important role in signal integration, have been implicated in tumorigenesis in multiple lineages, including breast cancer. We demonstrate, herein, that Src kinases regulate the phosphatidylinositol...

Ligand-independent redistribution of Fas (CD95) into lipid rafts mediates clonotypic T cell death

Clonotypic elimination of activated T cells through Fas-Fas ligand (CD95-CD95L) interactions is one mechanism of peripheral self-tolerance. T cell receptor (TCR) stimuli trigger FasL synthesis but also sensitize activated T cells to Fas-mediated...

Efficient gene transfer into the human natural killer cell line, NKL, using the amaxa nucleofection system

Natural killer (NK) cell lines are useful for studying facets of NK cell biology. Such cell lines are notoriously difficult to transfect by traditional methods, a fact that has hampered NK cell biology studies for a long time. To overcome this, we...

Amyloid precursor protein mediates proinflammatory activation of monocytic lineage cells

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by extracellular deposition of beta-amyloid (Abeta) peptide containing neuritic plaques. Abeta peptides are proteolytically derived from the membrane-bound amyloid...

Nucleofection as an efficient nonviral transfection method for human monocytic cells

Despite some progress in the field of gene transfer into hard-to-transfect cells, so far an efficient nonviral method for monocytes has not been available. A comparison of plasmid DNA with capped and polyadenylated mRNA for enhanced green fluorescent...

Neuron-derived orphan receptor-1 (NOR-1) modulates vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation

Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) migration and proliferation play a key role in the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease. However, the transcription factors that regulate VSMC activation are not completely characterized. By a...

FAS (CD95) mutations are rare in gastric MALT lymphoma but occur more frequently in primary gastric diffuse large B-cell lymphoma

A loss of FAS (CD95) function has been proposed to constitute an important step in early mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma development and FAS mutations have been recognized in malignant lymphomas, in particular at extranodal sites....

Bucillamine induces the synthesis of vascular endothelial growth factor dose-dependently in systemic sclerosis fibroblasts via nuclear factor-B and simian virus 40 promoter factor 1 pathways

The pathogenesis of systemic sclerosis (SSc) is characterized by activation of the immune system, impaired angiogenesis, and activated dermal fibroblasts. The effects of the immunosuppressive agent bucillamine (SA 96) on fibroblasts and angiogenic...

Biochemical and functional characterization of Rab27a mutations occurring in Griscelli syndrome patients

Rab27a is a member of the Rab family of small GTPase proteins, and thus far is the first member to be associated with a human disease (ie, the Griscelli syndrome type 2). Mutations in the Rab27a gene cause pigment as well as cytotoxic granule...
