Abstract Elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels induce activation of the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), a stress-activated protein kinase potentially participating in the development of atherosclerosis. The nature of the lipoprotein components inducing p38 MAPK activation has...
Abstract N-terminal acetylation in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is catalysed by any of three N-terminal acetyltransferases (NAT), NatA, NatB, and NatC, which contain the catalytic subunits Ard1p, Nat3p and Mak3p, respectively. Yeast 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase (PFK2) was found to be acetylated...
Abstract Asparagine synthetase catalyses the glutamine- and ATP-dependent conversion of aspartic acid to asparagine. In human hepatoma cells cultured in mediumcontaining amino acids, the mRNA of asparagine synthetase is not detectable by RNase protection mapping. However, maintaining the cells in...
