Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominantly inherited disorder caused by mutations in the NF1 gene on 17q11.2. Melanocytes cultured from café au lait macules (CALM) of patients with NF1 were analysed for loss of heterozygosity (LOH) at the NF1 locus using a 3′-flanking and four...
From the neuritic plaques and vascular walls of the brains of patients with Alzheimer disease, we have purified and quantified an Aβ peptide which starts at residue 3Glu in the form of pyroglutamyl (Aβ3pE). The N-terminally truncated Aβ3pE comprised 51% of the Aβ in the neuritic plaques. This...
Ceramide is a lipid second messenger generated by membrane hydrolysis of sphingomyelin by sphingomyelinase, but a role for this novel signaling pathway in vascular smooth muscle has not been elucidated. Based upon observations of cytokine-induced increases in sphingomyelinase activity, we...
The structure and enzymology of the phytanic acid α-oxidation pathway have long remained an enigma. Recent studies have shown that phytanic acid first undergoes activation to its coenzyme A ester, followed by hydroxylation to 2-hydroxyphytanoyl-CoA. In this paper we have studied the mechanism of...
CREM (cAMP Response Element Modulator) transcription factors are involved in the cAMP-dependent transcriptional regulation of CRE-containing genes. Multiple CREM transactivators and repressors are generated from a single gene by alternative splicings and use of an alternative intronic promoter....
This is a novel study demonstrating that cyclophilins are heat and stress inducible proteins in eukaryotic myogenic cells. We investigated the expression of cyclophilins in embryonal rat heart derived H9c2 myocytes following heat stress and chronic hypoxia. We report here that cyclophilins, the...
We investigated platelet-activating factor (PAF)-induced migration in eosinophils obtained from asthmatic patients who were treated with or without intravenous prednisolone. The migration of asthmatic eosinophils in remission and during an attack was significantly greater than that in healthy...
It has been suggested that a receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) is the nerve cell receptor for amyloid β protein (Aβ). To determine if this is indeed the case, two neural cell lines as well as rat cortical neurons were examined for the presence of the mRNA for RAGE by PCR and...
