Flavonoids, which are main constituents of herbal medicines, have been reported to inhibit the growth of Helicobacter pylori (HP). Therefore, to evaluate the anti-HP activity of some flavonoids (flavanols, flavones, flavonols and isoflavonoids), their effects on the growth and vacuolation of HP as well as the infective properties of HP ...

Exogenously added granulysin was reported to kill mammalian target cells. The sites of actions and molecular mechanisms of granulysin in target cell killing, however, are presently unclear. We here examine the effects of granulysin with the target HeLa cells transiently expressed with GFP-fused 9 kDa granulysin. Endogenously expressed GFP-fused granulysin ...

Angiogenin is an angiogenic protein known to play a role in rRNA transcription in endothelial cells. Nuclear translocation of angiogenin in endothelial cells decreases as cell density increases and ceases when cells are confluent. Here we report that angiogenin is constantly translocated to the nucleus of HeLa cells in a ...

Pemetrexed is a novel antifolate with polyglutamate derivatives that are potent inhibitors of thymidylate synthase (TS) and to a lesser extent glycinamide ribonucleotide formyltransferase (GARFT). Conditions that might modulate relative suppression of these sites were assessed by the pattern of hypoxanthine and thymidine protection. When grown with 25 nmol/L racemic ...

Epiplakin is a member of the plakin family with multiple copies of the plakin repeat domain (PRD). We studied the subcellular distribution and interactions of human epiplakin by immunostaining, overlay assays and RNAi knockdown. Epiplakin decorated the keratin intermediate filaments (IF) network and partially that of vimentin. In the binding ...

The endocytic and trafficking route followed by proteins that enter cells independently of clathrin is not well understood. In HeLa cells, a distinct endocytic and recycling pathway is followed for such clathrin-independent cargo proteins, and we have characterized the role of Rab proteins in this process. Here we describe cell-based ...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The methylation potential (MP) is defined as the ratio of S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet) to S-adenosylhomocysteine (AdoHcy). It was shown recently that hypoxia increases AdoMet/AdoHcy ratio in HepG2 cells (Hermes et al., Exp Cell Res 294: 325-334, 2004). In the present study, we compared AdoMet/AdoHcy ratio and energy metabolism in HepG2, ...

Myosin II plays important roles in many contractile-like cell functions, including cell migration, adhesion, and retraction. Myosin II is activated by regulatory light chain (RLC) phosphorylation whereas RLC dephosphorylation by myosin light chain phosphatase containing a myosin phosphatase targeting subunit (MYPT1) leads to myosin inactivation. HeLa cells contain MYPT1 in ...

Sister chromatids in mammalian cells remain attached mostly at their centromeres at metaphase because of the loss of cohesion along chromosome arms in prophase. Here, we report that Bub1 retains centromeric cohesion in mitosis of human cells. Depletion of Bub1 or Shugoshin (Sgo1) in HeLa cells by RNA interference causes ...

We present a novel method for on-chip cell lysis based on local hydroxide electro-generation. Hydroxide ions porate the cell membrane, leading to cell lysis. After lysis occurs, hydrogen ions, also generated on chip, react with excess hydroxide, creating a neutral pH lysate and eliminating the need for a wash step. ...

Pemetrexed [PMX (Alimta)] is a new generation antifolate with activity in a variety of solid tumors. It is an excellent substrate for most folate transporters, notably the reduced folate carrier (RFC) and folate receptor (FR)-alpha. The role of FR-alpha in PMX pharmacological activity is uncertain. Whereas high-level expression may enhance ...

Protein phosphatase type 1 (PP1) is involved in the regulation of numerous cell functions in mammalian cells. The major isoforms of PP1 catalytic subunit (PP1C)alpha, gamma1 and delta have nearly identical catalytic domain, but they vary in sequences at the amino and carboxyl termini. We previously showed that PP1Calpha is ...

EpsinR is a clathrin-coated vesicle (CCV)-associated protein that binds to vti1b, suggesting that it may be a vti1b-selective adaptor. Depletion of epsinR to undetectable levels in HeLa cells using siRNA causes vti1b to redistribute from the perinuclear region to the cell periphery, but vti1a also redistributes in epsinR-depleted cells, and ...

We recently demonstrated that RANTES forms complexes with CCR5, syndecan-1 (SD-1), SD-4, and CD44 expressed by human primary macrophages and that SD-1 and SD-4 but neither CD44 nor SD-2 coimmunoprecipitate with CCR5. Here we show that RANTES directly binds in a glycosaminoglycan-dependent manner to SD-1, SD-4, and CD44. Moreover, RANTES ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The success rate of any therapeutic approach depends on the therapeutic window, which can be increased by either raising the resistance of the normal tissue without protecting the tumor cells or by sensitizing the tumor cells but not the normal cells. Two promising candidate genes for normal ...

Geminin is believed to have a major function in the regulation of genome replication and cell proliferation. Published evidence shows that geminin specifically interacts with Cdt1 to block its function in the assembly of prereplication complexes. However, in proliferating HeLa cells geminin and Cdt1 are co-expressed during a relatively short ...

The endogenous cannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) is produced by neurons and other cells in a stimulus-dependent manner and undergoes rapid biological inactivation through transport into cells and catalytic hydrolysis. The enzymatic pathways responsible for 2-AG degradation are only partially understood. We have shown previously that overexpression of monoacylglycerol lipase (MGL), a ...

TATA-binding protein (TBP)-related factor 2 (TRF2) is one of four closely related RNA polymerase II transcription factors. We compared the intracellular localizations of TBP and TRF2 during the cell cycle and mitosis in HeLa cells. We show that during interphase, endogenous or exogenously expressed TRF2 is located almost exclusively in ...

Vesicles shed by U87-MG cells contain coxsackievirus and adenovirus receptor (CAR) protein that has been posttranslationally modified. Relative to full-length CAR, migration of the vesicle-associated soluble CAR antigen (CARd6) on SDS-polyacrylamide gels indicated a loss of approximately 6 kDa. HeLa and END-HHV6 cells also shed a similar vesicle-associated CAR protein. ...

Chlamydiae are gram-negative obligate intracellular pathogens to which access to an intracellular environment is paramount to their survival and replication. To this end, chlamydiae have evolved extremely efficient means of invading nonphagocytic cells. To elucidate the host cell machinery utilized by Chlamydia trachomatis in invasion, we examined the roles of ...

Many human adenovirus (Ad) serotypes use the coxsackie B virus-Ad receptor (CAR). Recently, CD46 was suggested to be a receptor of species B Ad serotype 11 (Ad11), Ad14, Ad16, Ad21, Ad35, and Ad50. Using Sindbis virus-mediated cDNA library expression, we identify here the membrane cofactor protein CD46 as a surface ...

The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is a cAMP-dependent protein kinase A-activated chloride channel that resides on the apical surface of epithelial cells. One unusual feature of this protein is that during biogenesis, approximately 75% of wild type CFTR is degraded by the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-associated degradative (ERAD) pathway. ...
