How can you use “adp-ribosylation” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Electroporation of C3 induces complete ADP-ribosylation of Rho in HPB-ALL

  • Although ADP-ribosylation of Rho does not significantly alter the subcellular distribution of RhoA, Rho activity is inhibited.

  • The involvement of Rho GTPases in regulating integrin dependent events such as leukocyte homotypic aggregation and in chemokine upregulation of integrin-mediated adhesion has recently been identified [ 18 19 ] . ADP-ribosylation of Rho in neutrophils by treatment with C3 not only inhibits cellular locomotion, but augments chemoattractant induced actin polymerization [ 20 21 ] . Moreover, inactivation of Rho in monocytic cells leads to accelerated formation of filopodia, and it has been proposed that Rho is a negative regulator of actin polymerization within this cell type [ 22 ] . Active Rho is also required for normal morphology, motility, and cytolytic activity of IL-2 activated NK cells [ 23 24 ] . We and others have demonstrated the importance of Rho in T lymphocyte activation [ 25 26 ] . Given the role played by Rho in the regulation of actin microfilaments in other cell types, and the indispensability of a functional actin cytoskeleton in lymphocyte motility and activation, it is of importance to study Rho's role in the regulation of T lymphocyte integrin function and maintenance of cytoskeletal organization.

  • DGW drafted the manuscript, performed ADP-ribosylation experiments, adhesion and spreading assays, and immunofluorescence.

  • Although ribosylation of other Rho family proteins such as Rac1 can occur with C3 [ 33 ] , this seemed to be very weak [ 13 ] . In our work, C3 electroporated into the T cell line HPB-ALL caused complete ADP-ribosylation of Rho proteins (~25 kDa).
