Example sentences for: adp-ribosylation

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

  • This small member of the Ras GTPase superfamily has been implicated in fibroblast models of integrin dependent actin stress fiber formation, focal contact assembly [ 13 ] , and gene induction via the serum response element [ 14 ] . Studies of Rho function have been facilitated by the use of specific toxins such as Clostridium botulinum toxin C3 which catalyses the ADP-ribosylation and inactivation of Rho [ 15 16 17 ] . The function of this GTPase and related family members such as Rac and Cdc42 has been extensively studied in the fibroblast model.

  • Previous reports have demonstrated that ADP-ribosylation of B-lymphoid cell lines by C3 treatment inhibits phorbol ester induced cellular homotypic aggregation [ 18 ] . Also, phorbol ester and chemoattractant (IL-8 and fMLP) induced pre-B lymphoblastoid adhesion to VCAM-1 and neutrophil adhesion to fibrinogen was abrogated in a dose-dependent manner by C3 exoenzyme [ 36 ] . This may indicate that in cells of hematopoietic lineages, the induction of an increased adhesive state may be susceptible to regulation by Rho proteins.

  • 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).

  • ADP-ribosylation of Rho proteins in chemoattractant stimulated neutrophils [ 20 21 ] and in both monocytic lines and fresh blood monocytes [ 22 38 ] results in actin filament polymerization.
