The Human N-Alpha-Acetyltransferase 40 (hNaa40p/ hNatD) Is Conserved from Yeast and N-Terminally Acetylates Histones H2A and H4
(Public Library of Science, 2011-09-15)
Protein Na-terminal acetylation (Nt-acetylation) is considered one of the most common protein modification in eukaryotes, and 80-90% of all soluble human proteins are modified in this way, with functional implications ...
The C-terminal domain of eukaryotic initiation factor 5 promotes start codon recognition by its dynamic interplay with eIF1 and eIF2 beta
Recognition of the proper start codon on mRNAs is essential for protein synthesis, which requires scanning and involves eukaryotic initiation factors (eIFs) eIF1, eIF1A, eIF2, and eIF5. The carboxyl terminal domain (CTD) ...
Sex differentiation in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.): morphological and gene expression studies
(BioMed Central, 2012-06-18)
Background: In differentiated gonochoristic species, a bipotential gonad develops into an ovary or testis during sex differentiation. Knowledge about this process is necessary to improve methods for masculinizing genetically ...
Refinement of a radioreceptor binding assay for nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate
The measurement of changes in nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) levels in cells has been, and remains, key to the investigation of the functions of NAADP as a Ca2+-releasing second messenger. Here we ...
CorA is a copper repressible surface-associated copper(I)-binding protein produced in Methylomicrobium album BG8
CorA is a copper repressible protein previously identified in the methanotrophic bacterium Methylomicrobium album BG8. In this work, we demonstrate that CorA is located on the cell surface and binds one copper ion per ...
Characterization of hARD2, a processed hARD1 gene duplicate, encoding a human protein N-α-acetyltransferase
(BioMed Central, 2006-04-25)
Background: Protein acetylation is increasingly recognized as an important mechanism regulating a variety of cellular functions. Several human protein acetyltransferases have been characterized, most of them catalyzing ...
Functional studies of two wild type variants of HIV-1 Tat
(The University of Bergen, 2003)
The influence of CXCR4 on Maedi visna virus-induced syncytium formation
(The University of Bergen, 2001)
Maedi visna virus (MVV) is a retrovirus that is member of the Lentivirus genus. MVV infects sheep and goats and causes progressive pneumonia or paralysis, leading to death. Since the discovery of the receptor for Human ...
The Methylococcus capsulatus (Bath) Secreted Protein, MopE*, Binds Both Reduced and Oxidized Copper
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2012-08-20)
Under copper limiting growth conditions the methanotrophic bacterium Methylococcus capsulatus (Bath) secrets essentially only one protein, MopE*, to the medium. MopE* is a copper-binding protein whose structure has been ...
