Identification of a 200 kDa polypeptide as type 3 phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase from bovine brain by partial protein and cDNA sequencing

Two phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase isozymes, type 3 and type 2, have been separated on hydroxylapatite after solubilizing bovine brain microsomes with Triton X-114. Employing a newly developed renaturation procedure following SDS-PAGE, we demonstrate that a 200 kDa polypeptide carries the enzyme activity of this type 3 isoform. Chromatography on hydroxylapatite, Heparin-Sepharose, Superdex 200 and finally SDS-PAGE results in an approximately 30,000-fold purification. Tryptic peptides generated from the 200 kDa polypeptide after SDS-PAGE have been sequenced and the obtained data have been used for constructing and synthesizing degenerated oligonucleotides. Polymerase chain reaction as well as screening of cDNA libraries allowed several clones to be isolated from which a 4.7 kb contiguous sequence can be built up. The open reading frame covers 4.4 kb with a 0.3 kb untranslated 3' end which yields a deduced amino acid sequence of 1,467 amino acids. The C-terminal part of ca. 300 amino acids represents the catalytic domain. Sequence alignment of this domain with the mammalian counterpart, the human type 2 phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase, the yeast kinases STT4 and PIK1, as well as with the catalytic domains of bovine, human, mouse and...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
