The antibody is directed against an epitope near the carboxy-terminus, Ca2+/calmodulin and F-actin binding site of caldesmon. Using ELISA, the antibody is able to inhibit caldesmon binding to Ca2+/calmodulin and F-actin. By immunoblotting, the antibody shows broad species reactivity to non-muscle caldesmon of mammalian cells.

Monoclonal antibodies, C2, C9, C18, C21 and C23, against chicken gizzard caldesmon have been prepared and characterized. These antibodies reacted with gizzard caldesmon (150 KDa) by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and protein immunoblotting. Immunofluorescence microscopy with these antibodies on cultured gizzard...

Mutations within members of the EGF/ErbB receptor family frequently release the oncogenic potential of these receptors, resulting in the activation of downstream signaling events independent of ligand regulatory constraints. We previously have demonstrated that the signal transduction events originating from...

MicroRNA miR-199a-5p impairs tight junction formation, leading to increased urothelial permeability in bladder pain syndrome. Now, using transcriptome analysis in urothelial TEU-2 cells, we implicate it in the regulation of cell cycle, cytoskeleton remodeling, TGF, and WNT signaling pathways. MiR-199a-5p...

The avian erythroblastosis viral oncogene (v-erbB) encodes a receptor tyrosine kinase that possesses sarcomagenic and leukemogenic potential. We have expressed transforming and nontransforming mutants of v-erbB in fibroblasts to detect transformation-associated signal transduction events. Coimmunoprecipitation and affinity chromatography have been...
