Phorbol ester treatment of two megakaryoblastic cell lines, CMK and UT-7, induces specific protein composition changes with non-coincident time-courses

The expressions of platelet-specific glycoprotein(GP)s Ib, IIb and IIIa were analyzed in 2 megakaryoblastic cell lines: CMK and UT-7. Phorbol-12 myristate 13-acetate (PMA) treatment of CMK induced expressions of GPs IIb and IIIa that peaked on the 4th day post-treatment, while treated UT-7 cells showed maximal levels of these GPs during the 6-8th days. Antibody staining to detect the formation of GPIb alpha after PMA induction showed the presence of the intact GP in UT-7 and the degraded form in CMK. In UT-7, synthesis of GPIIb mRNA increased on days 4-6 after PMA treatment, in parallel with the increase of GPIIb. PMA increased the cytoskeletal protein (actin and myosin) contents in both lines, but in contrast to the two GPs, the increase in these proteins started immediately after PMA addition to the cells. Cell surface proteins of CMK and UT-7 cells were rapidly modified after PMA induction. Especially notable were the degradations of 93-kDa and 140-kDa proteins that occurred on days 1-2 after PMA treatment. These studies demonstrate that the expression of platelet-specific proteins shows a different time dependency than the increment of cytoskeletal proteins, indicating that the syntheses of these two classes of proteins are...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.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

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.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
