Disease relevance of NBPF1

  • We have investigated the recognition by Ab of one such poorly immunogenic target, antigenic domain 2 (AD-2) on human cytomegalovirus glycoprotein B. To date, only two well-characterized human monoclonal Ab reactive with this epitope are known [1].
  • Purification and characterization of haloalcohol dehalogenase from Arthrobacter sp. strain AD2 [2].
  • Anti-Fasciola MAb (AD2) was conjugated with peroxidase and was used with anti-rabbit anti-Fasciola polyclonal antibody in sandwich-ELISA to detect circulating Fasciola antigen in serum and urine samples of 57 fascioliasis patients, 51 schistosomiasis patients, 45 patients infected with other parasites and 47 healthy controls [3].
  • Adriamycin, daunorubicin, heparin, rifamycin AF/013, streptolydigin, and streptovaricin all inhibit RNA synthesis from a tRNA gene or the adenovirus 2 (AD2) VA1 RNA gene [4].

High impact information on NBPF1

  • In contrast, the putative histone acetyltransferase domain, the Per-Arnt-Sim basic helix-loop-helix domain, the glutamine-rich domain, and AD2 can each be removed without loss of ligand-induced activity [5].
  • Overall, this novel NBPF family reflects the continuous evolution of primate genomes that resulted in large physiological differences, and its potential role in this process is discussed [6].
  • A novel gene family NBPF: intricate structure generated by gene duplications during primate evolution [6].
  • Interestingly, this gene family shows primate-specific duplications that result in species-specific arrays of NBPF homologous sequences [6].
  • The blastomeres always faced the adjoining blastomeres and blastocoel with the NBG-free, smooth region during embryogenesis [7].

Chemical compound and disease context of NBPF1


Biological context of NBPF1

  • The first exon encodes the forkhead DNA-binding domain and one of the transcriptional activation domains, AD2 [8].
  • In order to define parameters important for the neutralization of HCMV via gB, we have investigated the virus-neutralizing capacity and the kinetics of the interaction with AD-2 of the monomeric and dimeric forms of a single chain variable fragment (scFv) corresponding to this antibody [9].
  • Analysis of point mutations generated by low fidelity PCR within AD2 of HSF1 indicated that hydrophobic and charged amino acids in addition to proline, serine and threonine make critical contributions to transcriptional activity [10].
  • Hayes, MD, for the purpose of bringing the NASPE/British Pacing and Electrophysiology Group (BPEG) Generic Pacemaker Code (NBG Code) up to date [11].

Anatomical context of NBPF1

  • When the blastomeres began to adhere closely to each other at the 256-cell stage, only the NBG-free (basal) region acquired adhesiveness [7].
  • We show here that residues in the first complementarity determining region of both the heavy and the light chain are involved in determining the AD-2 specificity and, in addition, that key mutations in the germ-line sequence are required for effective interaction with this epitope [1].
  • Both AG and MBG groups demonstrated palpatory tenderness of posterior TMJ, medial and lateral pterygoid, and trapezius muscles when compared to NBG [12].

Associations of NBPF1 with chemical compounds

  • We demonstrate here that neutralization of HCMV via AD-2 on gB can be mediated by dimeric scFv, while monomeric fragments cannot mediate neutralization of the virus, despite a slow dissociation from the intact glycoprotein [9].
  • AD1 activity appears to be mediated by CBP/p300, whereas AD2 activity is apparently mediated through co-activator-associated arginine methyltransferase 1 (CARM1) [13].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of NBPF1

  • It was the only drug that decreased AD2 duration, and total EEG epileptic activity was reduced to less than 50% of that in the placebo [14].
  • An antigen fragment encompassing the AD2 domains of glycoprotein B from two different strains is sufficient for differentiation of primary vs. recurrent human cytomegalovirus infection by ELISA [15].
  • Third, in view of the extensive antibradycardia pacing capabilities common in modern implantable cardioverter defibrillators and the availability of the NASPE/BPEG Defibrillator Code (NBD Code), it was considered unnecessary for the NBG Code to address the presence or absence of antitachycardia features [11].
  • Rough measurements of crystallization rates showed that AB2 tended to crystallize fastest at small size ratios, whereas the opposite was true for AB13 [16].
