We report the cloning and characterization of the alternatively spliced mouse gene zfp162, formerly termed mzfm, the homolog of the human ZFM1 gene encoding the splicing factor SF1 and a putative signal transduction and activation of RNA (STAR) protein. The zfp162 gene is about 14 kb long and...
The frizzled (fz) gene is required for development of planar tissue polarity in the epidermis of Drosophila melanogaster; it likely encodes an integral membrane protein that functions as a receptor for a tissue polarity-signaling molecule. On the basis of hydropathy analyses, it has been...
Although the KRAB zinc finger proteins probably constitute the single largest class of transcription factors within the human genome, almost nothing is known about their biological function. To increase our knowledge about this interesting and relatively unexplored family of potent...
Both growth-factor deprivation and contact inhibition suppress cell growth; however, the mechanisms by which they inhibit cell proliferation may not be identical. The function of antiproliferative genes and the induction of programmed cell death are among the potential differences between these...
A novel cDNA, designated human metalloendoprotease 1 (hMP1), was identified on the basis of homology to known metalloendoproteases of the pitrilysin family. The full-length MP1 codes for a protein with an open reading frame of 1038 amino acids. The N-terminal region contains the HXXEH(X)76E...
PC2 is a member of the eukaryotic family of subtilisin-related proprotein convertases which are thought to be involved in the intracellular proteolytic processing of prohormones and proneuropeptides. The presence of only small amounts of PC2 in the secretory granules of certain mammalian...
The EVI2B gene is one of three genes embedded in intron 27b of the neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1; M. Recklinghausen) gene, which are transcribed in the direction opposite that of the NF1 gene. The function of EVI2B and its relation to NF1 symptoms is unknown. Here, the amounts of NF1 and EVI2B...
Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) is the enzyme responsible for the conversion of L-arginine to L-citrulline and nitric oxide. Dimerization of the enzyme is an absolute requirement for catalytic activity. Each NOS monomer contains an N-terminal heme-binding domain and a C-terminal reductase domain. It...
