Tumour necrosis factor-alpha regulates expression of the CCAAT-enhancer-binding proteins (C/EBPs) alpha and beta and determines the occupation of the C/EBP site in the promoter of the insulin-responsive glucose-transporter gene in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
(East Carolina University, 1999-03-15)
We have demonstrated previously that treatment of 3T3-L1 adipocytes with tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF) results in a rapid (4 h) and significant (75–80%) reduction in the rate of transcription of the GLUT4 gene. Control ...
Calponin interaction with alpha-actinin-actin: evidence for a structural role for calponin.
(East Carolina University, 1999-12)
The purpose of this study was to address the paradox of calponin localization with a-actinin and filamin, two proteins with tandem calponin homology (CH) domains, by determining the effect of these proteins on the binding ...
