Abstract Cell survival under severe thermal stress requires the activity of a bi-chaperone system, consisting of the ring-forming AAA+ chaperone ClpB (Hsp104) and the DnaK (Hsp70) chaperone system, which acts to solubilize and reactivate aggregated proteins. Recent studies have provided novel...
Abstract The flexibility of chromatin that enables translation of environmental cues into changes in genome utilisation, relies on a battery of enzymes able to modulate chromatin structure in a highly targeted and regulated manner. The most dynamic structural changes are brought about by two...
Abstract Neutrophil elastase (NE) and cathepsin G (CG), the proteolytic enzymes localized in azurophil granules of neutrophils (PMN), are involved in PMN responses to various stimuli. When released at sites of inflammation, they participate in the degradation of numerous proteins involved in the...
Abstract Pre-mRNA splicing is catalyzed by two unique spliceosomes, designated U2- or U12-dependent. In contrast to the well-characterized U2-dependent spliceosome, much remains to be learned about the less abundant U12-type spliceosome. This review focuses on recent advances in elucidating the...
Abstract Recombinant expression of actin in bacteria results in non-native species that aggregate into inclusion bodies. Actin is a folding substrate of TRiC, the chaperonin of the eukaryotic cytosol. By employing bacterial in vitro translation lysates supplemented with purified chaperones, we...
Abstract We demonstrate that basic components of the plastid protein-import apparatus originally found in pea, Toc34, Toc159, and Tic110, are also conserved in evolutionarily younger gymnosperms. We show that multiple isoforms of the preprotein receptor Toc34 differentially accumulate in various...
Abstract Opportunistic pathogens of the genus Candida produce secreted aspartic proteinases (Saps) that play an important role in virulence. Saps are synthesized as zymogens, but cell-free culture supernatants of Candida spp. contain only mature Saps. To study the zymogen conversion, the gene...
Abstract Triple-helical collagen IV protomers associate through their N- and C-termini, forming a three-dimensional network that provides basement membranes with mechanical strength. Within this network, the C-terminal non-collagenous (NC1) domains form tight dimeric junctions. Crystallographic...
