A mass spectrometry technique used for analysis of nonvolatile compounds such as proteins and macromolecules. The technique involves preparing electrically charged droplets from analyte molecules dissolved in solvent. The electrically charged droplets enter a vacuum chamber where the solvent is evaporated. Evaporation of solvent reduces the droplet size, thereby increasing the coulombic repulsion within the droplet. As the charged droplets get smaller, the excess charge within them causes them to disintegrate and release analyte molecules. The volatilized analyte molecules are then analyzed by mass spectrometry.
An analytical method used in determining the identity of a chemical based on its mass using mass analyzers/mass spectrometers.

Macromolecular complexes formed from the association of defined protein subunits.
A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of large biomolecules. Analyte molecules are embedded in an excess matrix of small organic molecules that show a high resonant absorption at the laser wavelength used. The matrix absorbs the laser energy, thus inducing a soft disintegration of the sample-matrix mixture into free (gas phase) matrix and analyte molecules and molecular ions. In general, only molecular ions of the analyte molecules are produced, and almost no fragmentation occurs. This makes the method well suited for molecular weight determinations and mixture analysis.
The order of amino acids as they occur in a polypeptide chain. This is referred to as the primary structure of proteins. It is of fundamental importance in determining PROTEIN CONFORMATION.
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.

Onset of nucleolar and extranucleolar transcription and expression of fibrillarin in macaque embryos developing in vitro. (1/436)

Specific aims were to characterize the onset of nucleolar and extranucleolar transcription and expression of the nucleolar protein fibrillarin during preimplantation development in vitro in macaque embryos using autoradiographic and immunocytochemical techniques. Autoradiography was performed on whole embryos cultured with [3H]uridine for assessment of nucleolar (rRNA) and extranucleolar (mRNA) transcription. Expression of fibrillarin was immunocytochemically assessed in whole embryos using a primary antibody against fibrillarin and a fluorescein isothiocyanate-conjugated secondary antibody. Extranucleolar incorporation of [3H]uridine was first detected in 2-cell embryos cultured 6-10 h with [3H]uridine. Culture with alpha-amanitin prevented incorporation of label in 2-cell embryos, and treatment with ribonuclease reduced the signal to background levels, indicating that [3H]uridine was incorporated into mRNA and not rRNA or DNA. Nucleolar incorporation of [3H]uridine was not evident in pronucleate-stage or 2- to 5-cell embryos, but it was detected in one 6-cell embryo and in all 8-cell to blastocyst-stage embryos. Fibrillarin was first expressed in some 6- to 7-cell embryos, but it was consistently expressed in all 8-cell embryos. Fibrillarin was localized to the perimeter of the nucleolar precursor bodies, forming a ring that completely encapsulated these structures. Fibrillarin was not expressed in 8- to 16-cell embryos cultured with alpha-amanitin, indicating that it is transcribed, rather than recruited, at the 8-cell stage. In conclusion, in in vitro-fertilized macaque embryos developing in vitro, extranucleolar synthesis of mRNA is initiated at the 2-cell stage while the onset of nucleolar transcription occurs at the 6- to 8-cell stage, coincident with expression of fibrillarin.  (+info)

Bone marrow ribonucleic acid polymerase. Effect of testosterone on nucleotide incorporation into nuclear RNA. (2/436)

The incorporation of 3H-UTP into RNA by isolated rat bone marrow nuclei is stimulated by testosterone. This effect is hormone and tissue specific. Using alpha-amanitine and different ionic strength conditions it was found that testosterone enhances preferentially RNA polymerase I activity. The sedimentation pattern of RNA isolated from bone marrow nuclei shows that the synthesis of RNA species within the 14-30 S range is mainly stimulated by the hormone.  (+info)

Stochastic and nonstochastic post-transcriptional silencing of chitinase and beta-1,3-glucanase genes involves increased RNA turnover-possible role for ribosome-independent RNA degradation. (3/436)

Stochastic and nonstochastic post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) in Nicotiana sylvestris plants carrying tobacco class I chitinase (CHN) and beta-1,3-glucanase transgenes differs in incidence, stability, and pattern of expression. Measurements with inhibitors of RNA synthesis (cordycepin, actinomycin D, and alpha-amanitin) showed that both forms of PTGS are associated with increased sequence-specific degradation of transcripts, suggesting that increased RNA turnover may be a general feature of PTGS. The protein synthesis inhibitors cycloheximide and verrucarin A did not inhibit degradation of CHN RNA targeted for PTGS, confirming that PTGS-related RNA degradation does not depend on ongoing protein synthesis. Because verrucarin A, unlike cycloheximide, dissociates mRNA from ribosomes, our results also suggest that ribosome-associated RNA degradation pathways may not be involved in CHN PTGS.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of RNA polymerase B from the larval fat body of the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta. (4/436)

DNA-dependent RNA polymerase B has been extensively purified from the larval fat body of the tobacco hornworm (Manduca sexta) by employing chromatography on ion-exchange columns of DEAE-Sephadex, DEAE-cellulose and phosphocellulose and centrifugation on glycerol gradients. The isolated enzyme after electrophoresis on acrylamide gels shows one main band and one minor band, both having enzyme activity sensitive to alpha-amanitin. The catalytic and physicochemical properties of the enzyme are similar to those of other eucaryotic B-type RNA polymerases. The enzyme has an apparent molecular weight of 530000, is inhibited 50% by alpha-amanitin at 0.04 microgram/ml and shows maximum activity on denatured DNA at 5 mM Mn2+ and 100 mM ammonium sulfate. An antibody was obtained that cross-reacts with the pure enzyme and forms a precipitin line. This antibody does not cross react with either Escherichia coli RNA polymerase or with wheat germ RNA polymerase but does react with one of the B polymerases isolated from wing tissue of the silkmoth, Antheraea pernyi.  (+info)

Inefficient processing impairs release of RNA from the site of transcription. (5/436)

We describe here for the first time the site of retention within the nucleus of pre-mRNA processing mutants unable to be exported to the cytoplasm. Fluorescence in situ hybridization was used to detect transcripts from human beta-globin genes that are either normal or defective in splicing or 3' end formation. Nuclear transcripts of both wild-type and mutant RNAs are detected only as intranuclear foci that colocalize with the template gene locus. The kinetics of transcript release from the site of transcription was assessed by treatment of cells with the transcriptional inhibitors actinomycin D, alpha-amanitin and DRB. These drugs induce the rapid disappearance of nuclear foci corresponding to wild-type human beta-globin RNA. In contrast, pre-mRNA mutants defective in either splicing or 3' end formation and which fail to be transported to the cytoplasm, are retained at the site of transcription. Therefore, 3' end processing and splicing appear to be rate limiting for release of mRNA from the site of transcription.  (+info)

Ubiquitination of RNA polymerase II large subunit signaled by phosphorylation of carboxyl-terminal domain. (6/436)

A sensitive assay using biotinylated ubiquitin revealed extensive ubiquitination of the large subunit of RNA polymerase II during incubations of transcription reactions in vitro. Phosphorylation of the repetitive carboxyl-terminal domain of the large subunit was a signal for ubiquitination. Specific inhibitors of cyclin-dependent kinase (cdk)-type kinases suppress the ubiquitination reaction. These kinases are components of transcription factors and have been shown to phosphorylate the carboxyl-terminal domain. In both regulation of transcription and DNA repair, phosphorylation of the repetitive carboxyl-terminal domain by kinases might signal degradation of the polymerase.  (+info)

The transcriptional inhibitors, actinomycin D and alpha-amanitin, activate the HIV-1 promoter and favor phosphorylation of the RNA polymerase II C-terminal domain. (7/436)

Actinomycin D and alpha-amanitin are commonly used to inhibit transcription. Unexpectedly, however, the transcription of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) long terminal repeats (LTR) is shown to be activated at the level of elongation, in human and murine cells exposed to these drugs, whereas the Rous sarcoma virus LTR, the human cytomegalovirus immediate early gene (CMV), and the HSP70 promoters are repressed. Activation of the HIV LTR is independent of the NFkappaB and TAR sequences and coincides with an enhanced average phosphorylation of the C-terminal domain (CTD) from the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II. Both the HIV-1 LTR activation and the bulk CTD phosphorylation enhancement are prevented by several CTD kinase inhibitors, including 5, 6-dichloro-1-beta-D-ribofuranosylbenzimidazole. The efficacies of the various compounds to block CTD phosphorylation and transcription in vivo correlate with their capacities to inhibit the CDK9/PITALRE kinase in vitro. Hence, the positive transcription elongation factor, P-TEFb, is likely to contribute to the average CTD phosphorylation in vivo and to the activation of the HIV-1 LTR induced by actinomycin D.  (+info)

RNA polymerase II targets pre-mRNA splicing factors to transcription sites in vivo. (8/436)

Biochemical evidence indicates that pre-mRNA splicing factors physically interact with the C-terminal domain of the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II. We have investigated the in vivo function of this interaction. In mammalian cells, truncation of the CTD of RNA pol II LS prevents the targeting of the splicing machinery to a transcription site. In the absence of the CTD, pre-mRNA splicing is severely reduced. The presence of unspliced RNA alone is not sufficient for the accumulation of splicing factors at the transcription site, nor for its efficient splicing. Our results demonstrate a critical role for the CTD of RNA pol II LS in the intranuclear targeting of splicing factors to transcription sites in vivo.  (+info)

The WW domain is a protein module found in a wide range of signaling proteins. It is one of the smallest protein modules that folds as a monomer without disulfide bridges or cofactors. WW domains bind proteins containing short linear peptide motifs that are proline-rich or contain at least one proline. Although the WW domain was initially considered a cytoplasmic module, the proteins containing WW domains have also been localized in the cell nucleus. Moreover, these proteins have been documented to participate in co-activation of transcription and modulation of RNA polymerase II activity. The carboxy-terminal domain (CTD) of RNA polymerase II acts as an assembly platform for distinct WW domain-containing proteins that affect the function of the RNA polymerase II. The formation of complexes between CTD and WW domain-containing proteins is regulated by phosphorylation of the CTD. Since the CTD sequence is highly repetitive and a target of several post-translational modifications and ...

Giardia lamblia is an early branching eukaryote, and although distinctly eukaryotic in its cell and molecular biology, transcription and translation in G. lamblia demonstrate important differences from these processes in higher eukaryotes. The cyclic octapeptide amanitin is a relatively selective inhibitor of eukaryotic RNA polymerase II (RNAP II) and is commonly used to study RNAP II transcription. Therefore, we measured the sensitivity of G. lamblia RNAP II transcription to alpha-amanitin and found that unlike most other eukaryotes, RNAP II transcription in Giardia is resistant to 1 mg/ml amanitin. In contrast, 50 microg/ml amanitin inhibits 85% of RNAP III transcription activity using leucyl-tRNA as a template. To better understand transcription in G. lamblia, we identified 10 of the 12 known eukaryotic rpb subunits, including all 10 subunits that are required for viability in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The amanitin motif (amanitin binding site) of Rpb1 from G. lamblia has amino acid ...

1. The two subunits α and β of Halobacterium cutirubrum DNA-dependent RNA polymerase are required in equimolar amounts for RNA synthesis to occur in vitro at the maximum rate. 2. In the absence of bivalent cations no interaction occurs between α and β subunits or between the subunits and DNA. 3. Mn2+ causes the subunits to form a 1:1 complex that still does not bind to the template. 4. Mg2+ permits binding of the Mn2+-mediated complex to DNA. 5. The complete enzyme, αβ, is inhibited by rifampicin and only the β subunit relieves the inhibition when added in excess. 6. Rifampicin-insensitive, template-dependent RNA synthesis occurs in the presence of protein α alone provided an oligonucleotide with a 5′-purine terminus is supplied as primer. 7. In the primed reaction with the α protein and an oligonucleotide, the template specificity is independent of the ionic strength, in contrast with the marked effect of salt concentration on the template specificity of the complete enzyme. 8.

Using sequence profile methods and structural comparisons we characterize a previously unknown family of nucleic acid polymerases in a group of mobile elements from genomes of diverse bacteria, an algal plastid and certain DNA viruses, including the recently reported Sputnik virus. Using contextual information from domain architectures and gene-neighborhoods we present evidence that they are likely to possess both primase and DNA polymerase activity, comparable to the previously reported prim-pol proteins. These newly identified polymerases help in defining the minimal functional core of superfamily A DNA polymerases and related RNA polymerases. Thus, they provide a framework to understand the emergence of both DNA and RNA polymerization activity in this class of enzymes. They also provide evidence that enigmatic DNA viruses, such as Sputnik, might have emerged from mobile elements coding these polymerases. This article was reviewed by Eugene Koonin and Mark Ragan.

Martín, María P. & Hanna Johannesson. Battarea phalloides and B. stevenii, insight into a long-standing taxonomic puzzle. Mycotaxon 76: 67-75. 2000.. ABSTRACT: Two species of Battarrea Pers., B. phalloides and B. stevenii, have been cited in Europe. According to some authors, B. phalloides has a gelatinous volva and smaller basidiomata than B. stevenii. However, other authors consider that these characters are not enough to separate the taxa at the species level, and consider B. stevenii a synonym of B. phalloides. The main purpose of this work was to try to resolve the boundaries between the two taxa, not only based on macroscopic and microscopic characters, but also through molecular techniques. Thirty-five basidiomata from different geographical areas (Austria, Burundi, France, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, Spain) were examined to define the macroscopic and microscopic characters. The collections were investigated with regard to basidioma size, presence or absence of gelatinous hyphae in the ...
There are several types of poison associated with different kinds of poisonous mushrooms.. The chief mechanism is the destruction of the liver, the filtering system for poisons in the body.. The toadstool toxin inhibits an enzyme called RNA polymerase, which synthesizes the genetic material messenger RNA.. Without the messenger KNA, the liver cells stop synthesizing normal proteins and so cease to function. Jaundice sets in. The process lasts four to seven days.. With the filtering system gone, vomiting is frequent before the victim dies.. Frequently, by the time symptoms appear; major irreversible damage has been done. In a few cases, liver transplants have been attempted to save people who have eaten poisonous toadstools.. Wild mushrooms require expert identification.. Among fungi, many make you sick, some make you very sick and some are hallucinogenic. Only a few are fatal.. The most famous fatal toadstool is the death angel, or Amanita phalloides. In this country it is found chiefly on the ...
Galerinas grow primarily in spruce and pine forests. They grow on rotting logs and stumps, but also in places where wood has been worked. This small mushroom causes very serious poisonings. It ranks among the deadly poisonous, even though its size and appearance do not make it especially attractive to collectors. The toxins it contains are not broken down by heat, and remain poisonous even after being thoroughly cooked. Galerinas are almost as dangerous as the much better-known death cap (Amanita phalloides) and even contains similar toxins. A fatal dose for an adult is around 10-15 mushrooms - considering how small and thin it is, that is not very much material. Poisonings also have a similar Phalloidin effect - damage to liver and kidneys. The smaller number of poisonings, compared to the death cap, is somewhat due to its relative scarcity, but mostly because most pickers regard all small mushrooms growing from stumps as inedible toadstools.. ...

DNA-dependent RNA polymerases catalyze the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates. Common component of RNA polymerases I, II and III which synthesize ribosomal RNA precursors, mRNA precursors and many functional non-coding RNAs, and small RNAs, such as 5S rRNA and tRNAs, respectively. Pol II is the central component of the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. Pols are composed of mobile elements that move relative to each other. In Pol II, RPB6 is part of the clamp element and together with parts of RPB1 and RPB2 forms a pocket to which the RPB4-RPB7 subcomplex binds (By similarity).
Consumption of the death cap is a medical emergency requiring hospitalization. The four main categories of therapy for poisoning are preliminary medical care, supportive measures, specific treatments, and liver transplantation.[78]. Preliminary care consists of gastric decontamination with either activated carbon or gastric lavage; due to the delay between ingestion and the first symptoms of poisoning, it is common for patients to arrive for treatment many hours after ingestion, potentially reducing the efficacy of these interventions.[78][79] Supportive measures are directed towards treating the dehydration which results from fluid loss during the gastrointestinal phase of intoxication and correction of metabolic acidosis, hypoglycemia, electrolyte imbalances, and impaired coagulation.[78]. No definitive antidote is available, but some specific treatments have been shown to improve survivability. High-dose continuous intravenous penicillin G has been reported to be of benefit, though the exact ...
The mere thought of an identification error sends a chill down the spine of any mushroom lover: The death cap mushroom (Amanita phalloides), which resembles the common white button mushroom, contains one of the most deadly poisons found in nature, α-amanitin. This substance kills any cell without exception, whether it be healthy or cancerous. At the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ) and the National Center for Tumor Diseases Heidelberg, immunologist Dr. Gerhard Moldenhauer, jointly with biochemist Professor Dr. Heinz Faulstich, Max Planck Institute for Medical Research, has now developed a method for destroying cancer cells using the dreaded fungal toxin without harming the body. The trick to accomplish this is to deliver the poison directly to the right address in the body using something that virtually serves as a cab. In this case, the cab is an antibody whose highly specific arms attach to a cancer-typical cellular surface protein called EpCAM. The ...

Identification and characterization of Mediator-containing RNA polymerase II holoenzyme. As an undergraduate student with Henry Pitot at the University of Wisconsin, I helped characterize the gene encoding the barbiturate-induced aldehyde dehydrogenase from rat liver. This project exposed me to the compelling idea that an environmental cue, in this case phenobarbital, can dramatically change the gene-expression profile of the hepatocyte. My Ph.D. thesis research with Rick Young at the Whitehead Institute/MIT pursued my growing fascination with the complicated process of how genes get turned on. I identified an initiation factor required for RNA polymerase II to begin transcription of protein-coding genes in yeast. I demonstrated that this factor was part of a large complex, which we called the SRB complex (for suppressor of RNA polymerase B/II), contemporaneously discovered and named Mediator by Roger Kornbergs lab. I went on to purify RNA polymerase II in complex with SRB complex/Mediator ...
The actin genes of Trypanosoma brucei are transcribed constitutively during the parasite life-cycle, by a polymerase sensitive to alpha-amanitin (1). The start region of the actin gene transcription unit was mapped by virtue of the accumulation of promoter-proximal transcripts which occurs following moderate UV irradiation (2 - 6). This region, located about 4 kilobases upstream from the genes, was able to direct transient expression of the bacterial Chloramphenicol Acetyl Transferase (CAT) gene in both bloodstream and procyclic forms of the parasite. The essential region of the promoter was defined by deletion, and appeared to be within 600 bp upstream from the putative transcription start site. It does not share significant homology with the other trypanosome promoters described so far (VSG, procyclin, rDNA), which all direct alpha-amanitin resistant transcription. ...
The pharmacologic inhibition of RNA Pol I is becoming a potentially important therapeutic strategy in cancer (7, 19, 23). The therapeutic index using Pol I inhibition relies at least in part on the fact that tumor cells are often found to be in an anabolic state, with higher levels of ribosome biosynthesis than their corresponding normal counterparts (7, 9, 43). A validated assay that can determine whether there is indeed an increase in Pol I activity in routinely obtained tissue specimens, as well as a similarly applicable pharmacodynamic marker of target inhibition, would be a valuable companion diagnostic for such therapeutic trials.. We developed a CISH assay to examine the level of expression of the 5′ETS/45S rRNA gene in routinely processed human clinical tissue FFPE specimens. In contrast to the highly stable 18S/28S rRNA, the 5′ETS region is processed cotranscriptionally and is short-lived, and hence well suited for use as a marker for Pol I transcription activity (17). As of now, we ...

Rpb1 was initially identified as a substrate of Rsp5 based on a biochemical screening for proteins that were bound and ubiquitinated by Rsp5 in vitro (18). While Rsp5 was found to efficiently multiubiquitinate Rpb1 in vitro, the biological function of this was unclear, since Rpb1 is an abundant and stable protein in vivo. The steady-state level of Rpb1 was found to increase modestly (approximately three- to fivefold) on prolonged transcriptional repression of RSP5, providing evidence that Rpb1 may be a bona fide substrate of Rsp5 in vivo, even if the half-life of Rpb1 under normal growth conditions is relatively long. Other studies have shown that the inhibition of transcription caused by the exposure of mammalian cells to DNA-damaging agents or treatment, including α-amanitin, actinomycin D, cisplatin, and UV irradiation, leads to the degradation of the Pol II LS (3, 27). Ratner et al. further demonstrated that the degradation of the Pol II LS induced by UV irradiation was ubiquitin and ...

Greg Bisson, Carolina Mehaffy, Corey Broeckling, Jessica Prenni, Dalin Rifat, Desomnd Lun, Marcos Burgos, Drew Weissman, Petros Karakousis and Karen Dobos. J. Bacteriology 194: 6441-6452 (December 2012). About 2 million people will die from tuberculosis (TB) this year. Thats about the same number of people who watched the Rockies play this year. Coincidence? Maybe not - after all both fields have someone named Belisle out there trying to keep things from getting out of hand. While figuring out how to make the Rockies successful is above our pay grade, one key reason that Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tb) is such a problem is drug resistance. M. tb. becomes resistant to the drug rifampin, a first line antibiotic, by mutating a region around the channel used by nucleic acids in the bacterial RNA Polymerase B subunit. If you think about it though, how can bacteria ...
However, According to Dr. John Rippon, a world expert on fungal diseases, squirrels have an interesting adaptation that allows them to eat mushrooms containing deadly amanita-toxins without being affected There are three important chemicals in the amanitas. Two will knock you right off, but are destroyed in cooking. The third one is the interesting one: it consists of the second amanitin, bound tightly to a glycoprotein molecule. When we digest the mushroom, the enzymes in our gut break the bond between the toxin and the glycoprotein, leaving the toxin free to enter our bloodstream, while the glycoprotein is excreted (a glycoprotein is a mucus molecule, in case you dont know). What the squirrels have done is line their gut with a toxin-compatible glycoprotein, so that as soon as it gets split from its original glycoprotein molecule, it gets rebound to the squirrel glycoprotein, and excreted along with it. Obviously, the squirrels dont cook their food to destroy the first two molecules, but ...

Harmonised classification and labelling is a legally binding classification and labelling for a substance, agreed at European Community level. Harmonisation is based on the substances physical, toxicological and eco-toxicological hazard assessment. The Hazard classification and labelling section uses the signal word, pictogram(s) and hazard statements of the substance under the harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) as its primary source of information.. If the substance is covered by more than one CLH entry (e.g. disodium tetraborate EC no. 215-540-4, is covered by three harmonisations: 005-011-00-4; 005-011-01-1 and 005-011-02-9), CLH information cannot be displayed in the InfoCard as the difference between the CLH classifications requires manual interpretation or verification.
