This work identifies central components of a feedback mechanism for the expression of mouse poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1). Using the stress-induced duplex destabilization algorithm, multiple base-unpairing regions (BURs) could be localized in the 5′ region of the mouse PARP-1 gene (...
Experimental evidence has been provided for a functionally relevant cis–trans isomerization of the Ile88–Pro89 peptide bond in cytochrome P450 cam (CYP101). The isomerization is proposed to be a key element of the structural reorganization leading to the catalytically competent form of CYP101...
The hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 protein is a helicase capable of unwinding duplex RNA or DNA. This study uses a newly developed molecular-beacon-based helicase assay (MBHA) to investigate how nucleoside triphosphates (NTPs) fuel HCV helicase-catalyzed DNA unwinding. The MBHA monitors the...
The transcription factor NF-κB (p50/p65) binds either a κB DNA element or its inhibitor protein, IκBα, but these two binding events are mutually exclusive. The reason for this exclusivity is not obvious from the available crystal structure data. The C-terminal PEST-like sequence of IκBα...
The intra-cellular level of tumor suppressor protein p53 is tightly controlled by an autoregulatory feedback loop between the protein and its negative regulator MDM2. The role of MDM2 in down-regulating the p53 response in unstressed conditions and in the post-stress recovery phase is well...
Colicin N is a pore-forming bacteriocin that enters target Escherichia coli cells with the assistance of TolA, a protein in the periplasm of the target cell. The N-terminal domain of the colicin that carries the TolA-binding epitope, the translocation domain (T-domain), is intrinsically...
The molecular regulation of striated muscle contraction couples the binding and dissociation of Ca 2+ on troponin (Tn) to the movement of tropomyosin on actin filaments. In turn, this process exposes or blocks myosin binding sites on actin, thereby controlling myosin crossbridge dynamics and...
The 37-kDa/67-kDa laminin receptor (LRP/LR) was identified as a cell surface receptor for prion proteins. The laminin receptor mutant LRP102–295∷FLAG interfered with PrP Sc propagation in murine neuronal cells presumably acting as a decoy in a transdominant negative fashion by trapping PrP...
