    Figure Lengend Snippet: VPS34-H868R exhibits upregulated lipid kinase activity A. Sequence alignment between human VPS34 and p110α was performed using the NCBI blast alignment tool. B. COS-7 cells were transiently transfected with plasmids encoding the indicated proteins. Anti-Myc antibody was used to immunoprecipitate Myc-tagged proteins. Immunoprecipitates were subjected to an in vitro lipid kinase assay. Ptdins(3)p production (pmol) for each enzymatic reaction was determined by interpolation from the standard curve. Bar graph is representative of two or more experiments and presented in the form of mean ± SEM (**, p

    Article Snippet: The immunoprecipitated VPS34 proteins bound on beads were used for the kinase assay.

    UVRAG-associated class III lipid kinase is activated by insulin. ( a ) ATG14- and UVRAG-containing Vps34 complexes were immunoprecipitated from Hepa1.6 cells grown in the presence (NR) or absence of amino acids (−AA) and assayed for lipid kinase activity. Inputs for each assay were immunoblotted to determine the amounts of the Vps34 co-immunoprecipitated. PI3P signals were densitometrically measured and normalized to Vps34 protein levels. The data are presented as a fold difference of PI3P normalized to co-immunoprecipitated Vps34 levels revealed by immunoblot for each condition. Data are means±s.e.m. ( n =4, * P
