Lamina-associated polypeptide 1 (LAP1) is a ubiquitously expressed inner nuclear membrane protein encoded by TOR1AIP1, and presents as two isoforms in humans, LAP1B and LAP1C. While loss of both isoforms results in a multisystemic progeroid-like syndrome, specific loss of LAP1B causes muscular dystrophy and cardiomyopathy, suggesting that LAP1B has a critical role in striated muscle. To gain more insight into the molecular pathophysiology underlying muscular dystrophy caused by LAP1B, we established a patient-derived fibroblast line that was transdifferentiated into myogenic cells using inducible MyoD expression. Compared to the controls, we observed strongly reduced myogenic differentiation and fusion potentials. Similar defects were observed in the C2C12 murine myoblasts carrying loss-of-function LAP1A/B mutations. Using RNA sequencing, we found that, despite MyoD overexpression and efficient cell cycle exit, transcriptional reprogramming of the LAP1B-deficient cells into the myogenic lineage is impaired with delayed activation of MYOG and muscle-specific genes. Gene set enrichment analyses suggested dysregulations of protein metabolism, extracellular matrix, and chromosome organization. Finally, we found that the LAP1B-deficient cells exhibit nuclear deformations, such as an increased number of micronuclei and altered morphometric parameters. This study uncovers the phenotypic and transcriptomic changes occurring during myoconversion of patient-derived LAP1B-deficient fibroblasts and provides a useful resource to gain insights into the mechanisms implicated in LAP1B-associated nuclear envelopathies.

ALCAM (Activated Leukocyte Cell Adhesion Molecule), also known as CD166 (cluster of differentiation 166), is a member of a subfamily of immunoglobulin receptors with five immunoglobulin-like domains (VVC2C2C2) in the extracellular domain.
Unnatural amino acid replacement in a yeast G protein-coupled receptor in its native environment.

Ste2p is the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) for the tridecapeptide pheromone cc factor of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This receptor- pheromone pair has been used extensively as a paradigm for investigating GPCR structure and function. Expression in yeast harboring a cognate tRNA/aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase pair specifically evolved to incorporate p-benzoyl-L-phenylalanine (Bpa) in response to the amber codon allowed the biosynthesis of Bpa-substituted Ste2p in its native cell. We replaced natural amino acid ...
Recombinant transglutaminase production by metabolically engineered Pichia pastoris
Gündüz, Burcu; Çalık, Pınar; Yılmaz, Remziye; Department of Biotechnology (2012)
Transglutaminases (EC 2.3.2.13) are enzymes that catalyze an acyl transfer reaction between a γ-carboxyamide group of a peptide bound glutaminyl residue (acyl donor) and a variety of primary amines (acyl acceptors), including the amino group lysine. Transglutaminase has a potential in obtaining proteins with novel properties, improving nutritional quality of foods with the addition of essential amino acids, preparing heat stable gels, developing rheological properties and mechanical strength of foods and re...
Design of a sequence based miRNA clustering method; analysis of fungal miRNAs and host organism target genes
Narcı, Kübra; Akkaya, Mahinur S.; Oğul, Hasan; Department of Bioinformatics (2014)
MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNA molecules which contain 21-25 nucleotides, and function in post transcriptional regulation by inhibiting the translation of mRNA targets. miRNAs typically affect gene regulation by forming composite feed forward circuits (cFFCs) which also comprise a transcription factor (TF) and a target gene. By analyzing these cFFCs, the contribution of miRNAs in altering TF networks can be revealed. These contributions could either be the de-escalation of the target gene repertoire or ...
BIOPHYSICAL AND MUTAGENIC ANALYSIS OF A G PROTEIN-COUPLED RECEPTOR: PHOTOCROSSLINKING OF THE TRIDECAPEPTIDE ALPHA-FACTOR INTO STE2P OF SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE REVEALS CONTACT POINTS BETWEEN THE PEPTIDE AND ITS RECEPTOR BINDING SITE
Naider, F.; Son, Çağdaş Devrim; Sargsyan, H.; Becker, J. M. (2004-01-01)
Mating of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is initiated by binding of a peptide pheromone, alpha-factor, to its cognate G protein-coupled receptor (Ste2p). Analogs of alpha-factor (WHWLQLKPGQPMY) containing the photoactivatable group p-benzoyl-L-phenylalanine (Bpa) and biotin as a tag were synthesized using solid-phase methodologies. Bpa was inserted at positions one, three, five, eight, and thirteen of alpha-factor to obtain a set of cross-linkable analogs spanning the pheromone. The biological activity and bindin...
