  • Because all other elongator complex subunits appear to be missing in the T. gondii genome, the authors propose that the TgElp3 protein may have evolved initially to function as a general KAT protein for early-branching eukaryotes. (asbmb.org)
  • It is still unclear if targeting mitochondrial function is a feasible therapeutic approach for the treatment of insulin resistance and glucose homeostasis. (mdpi.com)
  • 4-coumaroyl-CoA and three units of malonyl-CoA are converted into three molecules of carbon dioxide, four molecules of coenzyme A and one unit of naringenin chalcone. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lysine acetylation was first discovered as a mechanism that regulates histone function, but it is now known as a common PTM that is highly conserved across the evolution of prokaryotes and eukaryotes. (asbmb.org)
