New insight into benign tumours of major salivary glands by proteomic approach.
Pisa, Italy. In Plos One, Dec 2012
Intriguingly, all Warthin's tumour up-regulated proteins such as Ig gamma-1 chain C region, Ig kappa chain C region and Ig alpha-1 chain C region and S100A9 were correlated to immunological and inflammatory diseases, while pleomorphic adenomas such as annexin A1, annexin A4, macrophage-capping protein, apolipoprotein E and alpha crystalline B chain were associated with cell death, apoptosis and tumorigenesis, showing different features of two benign tumours.
Annexin A1: novel roles in skeletal muscle biology.
Salerno, Italy. In J Cell Physiol, Aug 2012
Annexin A1 (ANXA1, lipocortin-1) is the first characterized member of the annexin superfamily of proteins, so called since their main property is to bind (i.e., to annex) to cellular membranes in a Ca(2+) -dependent manner.
Phosphorylation of basic amino acid residues in proteins: important but easily missed.
Warsaw, Poland. In Acta Biochim Pol, 2010
Beside acting as high-energy intermediates in the transfer of the phosphoryl group from donor to acceptor molecules, phosphohistidines have been found so far in histone H4, heterotrimeric G proteins, ion channel KCa3.1, annexin 1, P-selectin and myelin basic protein, as well as in recombinant thymidylate synthase expressed in bacterial cells.
