Re-entering the translocon from the lumenal side of the endoplasmic reticulum. Studies on mutated carboxypeptidase yscY species. (1/315)

Misfolded or unassembled secretory proteins are retained in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and subsequently degraded by the cytosolic ubiquitin-proteasome system. This requires their retrograde transport from the ER lumen into the cytosol, which is mediated by the Sec61 translocon. It had remained a mystery whether ER-localised soluble proteins are at all capable of re-entering the Sec61 channel de novo or whether a permanent contact of the imported protein with the translocon is a prerequisite for retrograde transport. In this study we analysed two new variants of the mutated yeast carboxypeptidase yscY, CPY*: a carboxy-terminal fusion protein of CPY* and pig liver esterase and a CPY* species carrying an additional glycosylation site at its carboxy-terminus. With these constructs it can be demonstrated that the newly synthesised CPY* chain is not retained in the translocation channel but reaches its ER lumenal side completely. Our data indicate that the Sec61 channel provides the essential pore for protein transport through the ER membrane in either direction; persistent contact with the translocon after import seems not to be required for retrograde transport.  (+info)

The protein disulphide-isomerase family: unravelling a string of folds. (2/315)

The mammalian protein disulphide-isomerase (PDI) family encompasses several highly divergent proteins that are involved in the processing and maturation of secretory proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum. These proteins are characterized by the presence of one or more domains of roughly 95-110 amino acids related to the cytoplasmic protein thioredoxin. All but the PDI-D subfamily are composed entirely of repeats of such domains, with at least one domain containing and one domain lacking a redox-active -Cys-Xaa-Xaa-Cys- tetrapeptide. In addition to their known roles as redox catalysts and isomerases, the last few years have revealed additional functions of the PDI proteins, including peptide binding, cell adhesion and perhaps chaperone activities. Attention is now turning to the non-redox-active domains of the PDIs, which may play an important role in all of the known activities of these proteins. Thus the presence of both redox-active and -inactive domains within these proteins portends a complexity of functions differentially accommodated by the various family members.  (+info)

Ligand recognition and domain structure of Vps10p, a vacuolar protein sorting receptor in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (3/315)

Vp10p is a receptor that sorts several different vacuolar proteins by cycling between a late Golgi compartment and the endosome. The cytoplasmic tail of Vps10p is necessary for the recycling, whereas the lumenal domain is predicted to interact with the soluble ligands. We have studied ligand binding to Vps10p by introducing deletions in the lumenal region. This region contains two domains with homology to each other. Domain 2 binds carboxypeptidase Y (CPY), proteinase A (PrA) and hybrids of these proteases with invertase. Moreover, we show that aminopeptidase Y (APY) is a ligand of Vps10p. The native proteases compete for binding to domain 2. Binding of CPY(156)-invertase or PrA(137)-invertase, on the other hand, do not interfere with binding of CPY to Vps10p. Furthermore, the Q24RPL27 sequence known to be important for vacuolar sorting of CPY, is of little importance in the Vps10p-dependent sorting of CPY-invertase. Apparently, domain 2 contains two different binding sites; one for APY, CPY and PrA, and one for CPY-invertase and PrA-invertase. The latter interaction seems not to be sequence specific, and we suggest that an unfolded structure in these ligands is recognized by Vps10p.  (+info)

Effect of prolonged administration of a urinary kinase inhibitor, ebelactone B on the development of deoxycorticosterone acetate-salt hypertension in rats. (4/315)

The effect of prolonged administration of a carboxypeptidase Y-like kininase inhibitor, ebelactone B (EB) (2-ethyl-3, 11-dihydroxy-4, 6, 8, 10, 12-pentamethyl-9-oxo-6-tetradecenoic 1, 3-lactone), on the development of deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt hypertension was tested. The systolic blood pressure (SBP) of non-treated 6-week-old Sprague-Dawley strain rats was gradually increased by DOCA-salt treatment from 137+/-2 mmHg (n=11) to 195+/-7 mmHg at 10 weeks of age. With daily oral administration of lisinopril (5 mg kg(-1), twice a day), which is an inhibitor of angiotensin converting enzyme, a major kininase in plasma, the development of hypertension was not suppressed. By contrast, administration of EB (5 mg kg(-1), twice a day), completely inhibited the development of hypertension (SBP: 146+/-1 mmHg, n=5, 10 weeks old). The reduced SBP at 10 weeks of age was equal to the SBP before any treatment (142+/-1 mmHg, n=5). Direct determination of mean blood pressure (MBP) in conscious, unrestrained rats confirmed that MBP elevation was completely inhibited by EB. Continuous subcutaneous infusion (5 mg kg(-1) day(-1)) of HOE140, a bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist, restored the elevation of SBP, which was suppressed by EB. The weights of left ventricle of DOCA-salt treated rats 10-weeks-old (0.36+/-0.02 g 100 g body weight(-1), n=11) was significantly reduced by EB (0.27+/-0.01, n=5), as were the sodium levels in serum, cerebrospinal fluid and erythrocyte. These findings suggested that EB is effective in preventing salt-related hypertension presumably by eliminating sodium retention.  (+info)

Stable expression of protective protein/cathepsin A-green fluorescent protein fusion genes in a fibroblastic cell line from a galactosialidosis patient. Model system for revealing the intracellular transport of normal and mutated lysosomal enzymes. (5/315)

Fibroblastic cell lines derived from a galactosialidosis patient, stably expressing the chimaeric green fluorescent protein variant (EGFP) gene fused to the wild-type and mutant human lysosomal protective protein/cathepsin A (PPCA) cDNA, were first established as a model system for revealing the sorting and processing of lysosomal enzymes and for investigating the molecular bases of their deficiencies. In the cell line expressing the wild-type PPCA-EGFP chimaera gene (EGFP-PPwild), an 81 kDa form (27 kDa EGFP fused to the C-terminus of the 54 kDa PPCA precursor) was produced, then processed into the mature 32/20 kDa two-chain form free of the EGFP domain. The intracellular cathepsin A, alpha-N-acetylneuraminidase and beta-galactosidase activities, which are deficient in the parent fibroblastic cells, could also be significantly restored in the cells. In contrast with the uniform and strong fluorescence throughout the cytoplasm and nucleus in the mock-cell line expressing only EGFP cDNA, weak reticular and punctate fluorescence was distributed throughout the EGFP-PPwild cell line. Bafilomycin A1, a potent inhibitor of vacuolar ATPase and intracellular acidification, induced the distribution of Golgi-like perinuclear fluorescence throughout the living and fixed cells, in which only the 81 kDa product was detected. After removal of the agent, time-dependent transport of the chimaeric protein from the Golgi apparatus to the prelysosomal structure in living cells was monitored with a confocal laser scanning microscope system. Leupeptin caused the distribution of lysosome-like granular fluorescence throughout the cytoplasm in the fixed cells, although it was hardly observed in living cells. The latter agent also dose-dependently induced an increase in the intracellular amount of the 81 kDa product containing the EGFP domain and inhibited the restoration of cathepsin A activity in the EGFP-PPwild cells after the removal of bafilomycin A1. In parallel, both the mature two-chain form and PPCA function disappeared. These results suggested that the chimaera gene product was transported to acidic compartments (endosomes/lysosomes), where proteolytic processing of the PPCA precursor/zymogen, quenching of the fluorescence, and random degradation of the EGFP portion occurred. A cell line stably expressing a chimaeric gene with a mutant PPCA cDNA containing an A1184-->G (Y395C) mutation, commonly detected in Japanese severe early-infantile type of galactosialidosis patients, showed an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-like reticular fluorescence pattern. The PPCA-immunoreactive gene product was hardly detected in this cell line. The mutant chimaeric product was suggested to be degraded rapidly in the ER before transport to post-ER compartments. A cell line expressing the chimaeric gene with a T746-->A (Y249N) PPCA mutation exhibited both ER-like reticular and granular fluorescence on the reticular structure that was stronger than that in the EGFP-PPwild cells. Some of them contained large fluorescent inclusion-body-like structures. The ineffectiveness of transport inhibitors in the distribution changes in the two mutant chimaeric proteins suggested that they were not delivered to acidic compartments. Therefore this expression system can possibly be applied to the direct analysis of the sorting defects of mutant gene products in living cells and will be useful for the molecular investigation of lysosomal diseases, including galactosialidosis.  (+info)

Contribution of the carbohydrate moiety to conformational stability of the carboxypeptidase Y high pressure study. (6/315)

The process of pressure-induced denaturation of carboxypeptidase Y and the role of the carbohydrate moiety in its response to pressure and low temperature were investigated by measuring in situ the catalytic activity and, the intrinsic and 8-anilino-1-naphthalene sulfonic acid binding fluorescences. Pressure-induced denaturation of carboxypeptidase Y is a process involving at least three transitions. Low pressures (below 150 MPa) induced slight conformational changes characterized by a slight decrease in the center of the spectral mass of intrinsic fluorescence, whereas no changes in 8-anilino-1-naphthalene sulfonic acid binding fluorescence were observed and 80% of the catalytic activity remained. Higher pressure (150-500 MPa) induced further conformational changes, characterized by a large decrease in the center of the spectral mass of intrinsic fluorescence, a large increase in the 8-anilino-1-naphthalene sulfonic acid binding fluorescence and the loss of all catalytic activity. Thus, this intermediate exhibited characteristics of molten globule-like state. A further increase, in pressure (above 550 MPa) induced transition from this first molten globule-like state to a second molten globule-like state. This two-stage denaturation process can be explained by assuming the existence of two independent structural domains in the carboxypeptidase molecule. A similar three-transition process was found for unglycosylated carboxypeptidase Y, but, the first two transitions clearly occurred at lower pressures than those for glycosylated carboxypeptidase Y. These findings indicate that the carbohydrate moiety protects carboxypeptidase Y against pressure-induced denaturation. The origin of the protective effects is discussed based on the known crystallographic structure of CPY.  (+info)

Crystal structure of human gastric lipase and model of lysosomal acid lipase, two lipolytic enzymes of medical interest. (7/315)

Fat digestion in humans requires not only the classical pancreatic lipase but also gastric lipase, which is stable and active despite the highly acidic stomach environment. We report here the structure of recombinant human gastric lipase at 3.0-A resolution, the first structure to be described within the mammalian acid lipase family. This globular enzyme (379 residues) consists of a core domain belonging to the alpha/beta hydrolase-fold family and a "cap" domain, which is analogous to that present in serine carboxypeptidases. It possesses a classical catalytic triad (Ser-153, His-353, Asp-324) and an oxyanion hole (NH groups of Gln-154 and Leu-67). Four N-glycosylation sites were identified on the electron density maps. The catalytic serine is deeply buried under a segment consisting of 30 residues, which can be defined as a lid and belonging to the cap domain. The displacement of the lid is necessary for the substrates to have access to Ser-153. A phosphonate inhibitor was positioned in the active site that clearly suggests the location of the hydrophobic substrate binding site. The lysosomal acid lipase was modeled by homology, and possible explanations for some previously reported mutations leading to the cholesterol ester storage disease are given based on the present model.  (+info)

The phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate binding protein Vac1p interacts with a Rab GTPase and a Sec1p homologue to facilitate vesicle-mediated vacuolar protein sorting. (8/315)

Activated GTP-bound Rab proteins are thought to interact with effectors to elicit vesicle targeting and fusion events. Vesicle-associated v-SNARE and target membrane t-SNARE proteins are also involved in vesicular transport. Little is known about the functional relationship between Rabs and SNARE protein complexes. We have constructed an activated allele of VPS21, a yeast Rab protein involved in vacuolar protein sorting, and demonstrated an allele-specific interaction between Vps21p and Vac1p. Vac1p was found to bind the Sec1p homologue Vps45p. Although no association between Vps21p and Vps45p was seen, a genetic interaction between VPS21 and VPS45 was observed. Vac1p contains a zinc-binding FYVE finger that may bind phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate [PtdIns(3)P]. In other FYVE domain proteins, this motif and PtdIns(3)P are necessary for membrane association. Vac1 proteins with mutant FYVE fingers still associated with membranes but showed vacuolar protein sorting defects and reduced interactions with Vps45p and activated Vps21p. Vac1p membrane association was not dependent on PtdIns(3)P, Pep12p, Vps21p, Vps45p, or the PtdIns 3-kinase, Vps34p. Vac1p FYVE finger mutant missorting phenotypes were suppressed by a defective allele of VPS34. These data indicate that PtdIns(3)P may perform a regulatory role, possibly involved in mediating Vac1p protein-protein interactions. We propose that activated-Vps21p interacts with its effector, Vac1p, which interacts with Vps45p to regulate the Golgi to endosome SNARE complex.  (+info)

Lysosomal Storage Disorders are a class of inherited metabolic conditions that result from alterations in the function of lysosomal enzymes. One example is GM1 Gangliosidosis (GM1), a disorder in which the activity of β-galactosidase is deficient resulting in neurodegeneration and early death. The enzyme, β-gal, is a member of the Lysosomal Multienzyme Complex (LMC), which transports proteins to the lysosome and enables various functions. LMC members include β-gal, α-neuraminidase and the Protective Protein Cathepsin A (PPCA). In a unique ovine model of GM1, there is a primary deficiency in the activity of β- galactosidase and a secondary deficiency in α-neuraminidase activity. The cause of the secondary deficiency in α-neuraminidase activity, which is not seen in any other animal model of GM1, is currently unknown. The α-neuraminidase protein is coded for by the NEU1 gene and is, a glycohydrolitic enzyme that is active in the lysosome. The secondary deficiency of α- neuraminidase seen in our
Cathepsin A is a ubiquitously expressed, multifunctional lysosomal protein. In the lysosome, it binds to neuraminidase and β-galactosidase to activate the former and stabilize the latter, functions that led to the term lysosomal protective protein. It also possesses serine carboxypeptidase activity at acidic pH as well as deamidase and esterase activities at neutral pH. Mutations that disrupt its protective functions are known to cause the lysosomal storage disease, galactosialidosis, in humans (summarized by Hiraiwa [1]). However, its enzymatic activity has garnered the most attention in recent years. Although localized to lysosomes intracellularly, cathepsin A can also be secreted. Extracellularly, it is capable of degrading many bioactive peptides that function in the cardiovascular system, including endothelin-1, bradykinin, and angiotensin I. Because the enzymatic activity of cathepsin A can be targeted separately from its protective functions (2), there has been interest for at ...
Lysosomal serine carboxypeptidase Cathepsin A (CTSA) is a multifunctional enzyme with distinct protective and catalytic function. CTSA that is present in the lysosomal multienzyme complex facilitates correct lysosomal routing, stability and activation of betagalactosidase and alpha-neuraminidase. In addition, CTSA plays a role in the inactivation of bioactive peptides including bradykinin, substances P, oxytocin, angiotensin I and endothelin-I by cleavage of one or two amino acid(s) from the C-terminal ends. In this study, we aimed to elucidate the regulatory role of CTSA on bioactive peptides in a knock-in mouse model of CTSAS190A. We evaluated the levels of bradykinin, substances P, oxytocin, angiotensin I and endothelin-I in the kidney, liver, lung, brain and serum of the CTSAS190A mouse model at three- and six-months of age. Our results suggest that CTSA selectively contributes to the processing of bioactive peptides in different tissues of CTSAS190A mice compared to those of age-matched wild
Galactosialidosis (MIM 256540) is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease caused by a defect of the protective protein/cathepsin A. Increased amounts of urinary sialic acid-rich oligosaccharides are considered to be an essential diagnostic marker of the disease. We here report a patient with atypical clinical features who consistently has excreted normal amounts of sialyloligosaccharides in the urine. The boy started to have attacks of neuropathic pain associated with hyperesthesia around 1(1/2) years of age. From 4 years of age when his vision was first tested, the patient developed progressive visual loss and at the age of 10 years, macular cherry-red spots were found. At this age, he also had a mild learning disability and clinical examination showed mild facial coarsening, increased lumbar lordosis and pyramidal signs in the legs. In conclusion, the clinical and laboratory features of this patient show that galactosialidosis may be considered in patients even in the absence of ...
VPS10 (Vacuolar Protein Sorting) encodes a large type I transmembrane protein (Vps10p), involved in the sorting of the soluble vacuolar hydrolase carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) to the Saccharomyces cerevisiae lysosome-like vacuole. Cells lacking Vps10p missorted greater than 90% CPY and 50% of another vacuolar hydrolase, PrA, to the cell surface. In vitro equilibrium binding studies established that the 1,380-amino acid lumenal domain of Vps10p binds CPY precursor in a 1:1 stoichiometry, further supporting the assignment of Vps10p as the CPY sorting receptor. Vps10p has been immunolocalized to the late-Golgi compartment where CPY is sorted away from the secretory pathway. Vps10p is synthesized at a rate 20-fold lower that that of its ligand CPY, which in light of the 1:1 binding stoichiometry, requires that Vps10p must recycle and perform multiple rounds of CPY sorting. The 164-amino acid Vps10p cytosolic domain is involved in receptor trafficking, as deletion of this domain resulted in delivery of ...

To gain further insight into the mechanisms underlying miRNA-induced protection, we probed several target protective proteins that are implicated in IPC, including eNOS, iNOS, HSP70, and the HSP70 transcription factor HSF-1. As shown in Figure 3A, induction of eNOS mRNA (61±6.7%) was detected in the IPC-miRNA group 2 hours following treatment. However, no changes in iNOS mRNA were observed. Western blot analysis confirmed a significant upregulation in eNOS protein (62.0±6.7%) and HSF-1 (42.7±3.0%) 4 hours after IPC-miRNA treatment. HSP70 was also significantly increased (102.3±8.9%) 48 hours after IPC-miRNA treatment. Again, similar to mRNA, iNOS protein was not significantly changed (Figure 3C and 3D).. Despite potential species differences in cardioprotection,7 it is widely known that the protective effects of IPC occur in an early phase that develops rapidly after the initial stimulus but dissipates within 2 to 3 hours and a late phase that becomes apparent 12 to 24 hours later and ...

Galactosialidosis is a condition that affects many areas of the body. The three forms of galactosialidosis are distinguished by the age at which symptoms develop and the pattern of features.. The early infantile form of galactosialidosis is associated with extensive swelling caused by fluid accumulation before birth (hydrops fetalis), a soft out-pouching in the lower abdomen (an inguinal hernia), and an enlarged liver and spleen (hepatosplenomegaly). Additional features of this form include abnormal bone development (dysostosis multiplex) and distinctive facial features that are often described as coarse. Some infants have an enlarged heart (cardiomegaly); an eye abnormality called a cherry-red spot, which can be identified with an eye examination; and kidney disease that can progress to kidney failure. Infants with this form usually are diagnosed between birth and 3 months; they typically live into late infancy.. The late infantile form of galactosialidosis shares some features with the early ...

Worth mentioning because the same themes kept coming up. Specifically, there was quite a bit about everyone developing their own list of false positive variants/genes and how to filter SNPs adequately. Generally, its agreed that (1) there is a subset of variants and genes that show up in nearly every sequencing experiment and therefore are more likely false positives than anything else (they dont tend to validate, either) and (2) that dbSNP is too inclusive of disease samples and lacking adequate phenomic info to be used as a blind filter. Ive personally always told people to use dbSNP as a guide. Never dismiss a variant just because its in dbSNP. You can look at the non-dbSNP variants first if you want, since those might be the jackpot spots, but if you find nothing there, try looking in those in dbSNP ...
The reactions between yeast carboxypeptidase C and the group-specific reagents, phenylglyoxal and iodoacetamide, have been studied in detail and the reactions of residue at the active site with N-tosyl-L-phenylalanine chloromethyl ketone and diisopropyl phosphorofluoridate have been confirmed. Modification of the enzyme by either phenylglyoxal or iodoacetamide results in the loss of peptidase activity, while esterase activity remains unchanged. Inactivation by phenylglyoxal appears to be the result of the modification of a single arginine residue, whereas inhibition by iodoacetamide can be correlated with the modification of a single methionine residue. Inactivation of the enzyme by either N-tosyl-L-phenylalanine chloromethyl ketone or diisopropyl phosphorofluoridate is the result of the modification of a single histidine and a single serine residue, respectively. The pattern of inhibition indicates certain analogies in the mechanism of yeast carboxypeptidase C to pancreatic chymotrypsin, on the ...

Several sRNA on the same phagemid : Although our silencing small RNAs were assembled in phagemids with Gibson assembly, the Biobricks cutting sites included in our BBG adapter method provide full modularity. In our case a direct application is the assembly of multiple silencing modules (promotor+sRNA+terminator) on a single phagemid vector. As the main clinical problem with bacteria is multi or even pan-resistance this modularity provide an interesting strategy to explore as it allows simultaneous downregulation of multiple target genes. Building a library of sRNA : As our silencing strategy rely on base pair complementarity, a main concern from the clinical point of view would be the fast emergence of resistances to silencing through single point mutations. Indeed even if the majority of mutations that would decrease the efficiency of the silencing would also lead to an impaired or non functionnal protective protein, some neutral mutations will still be made possible by the redundancy of the ...
Mathematicians and scientists from two UK universities have collaborated to shed new light on the process of viral replication during an infection.. Experimentalists from the University of Leeds and mathematicians from the University of York devised a mathematical model that gives new insights into the molecular mechanisms behind virus assembly, helping to explain the efficiency of their operation.. Researchers from the Departments of Mathematics and Biology at the University of York have developed a theoretical basis for the speed and efficiency with which viruses assemble the protective proteins for their genetic information - in this case an RNA molecule - during an infection.. The team incorporated multiple specific contacts between the genomic RNA and the proteins in the containers, along with other details of real virus infections, into a mathematical model that demonstrates how these contacts act collectively to reduce the complexity of virus formation.. They thus solved a longstanding ...

It has been suggested that the Golgi localization of GRIP-golgin in mammalian cells is dependent on the homo-dimerization of the GRIP domain, the interaction of the GRIP domain with activated Arl1, and the interaction of the GRIP domain with membrane phospholipids (Lu et al., 2006; Panic et al., 2003; Setty et al., 2003; Wu et al., 2004). In the current study, we found that the C-terminal region of Imh1p (Imh1-C177) is sufficient to maintain Arl1p at the trans-Golgi (Fig. 1E). To investigate whether the dimerization of Imh1p is required for its Golgi targeting as well as stabilizing of Arl1p on the Golgi, we generated Imh1p mutants with increasing large truncations of the coiled-coil region. The GRIP domain comprises the C-terminal 62 residues of Imh1p (Kjer-Nielsen et al., 1999). We therefore constructed Imh1-GRIP, Imh1-C89, Imh1-C177, and Imh1-C213, each of which possess an intact GRIP domain without or with part of the coiled-coil region (Fig. 5A). First, we performed two different yeast ...
Experiments show that the tardigrades resilience can be transferred to cultures of human cells.. […]. Now, a paper1 published on 20 September in Nature Communications pinpoints the source of yet another tardigrade superpower: a protective protein that provides resistance to damaging X-rays. And researchers were able to transfer that resistance to human cells.. Tolerance against X-ray is thought to be a side-product of [the] animals adaption to severe dehydration, says lead study author Takekazu Kunieda, a molecular biologist at the University of Tokyo. According to Kunieda, severe dehydration wreaks havoc on the molecules in living things. It can even tear apart DNA, much like X-rays can.. The researchers wanted to know how tardigrades protected themselves against such harsh conditions. So Kunieda and his colleagues began by sequencing the genome of Ramazzottius varieornatus, a species that is particularly stress tolerant. Its easier to study processes within the tardigrades cells when ...

During the process of sporulation, a/α diploids degrade about 50% of their vegetative proteins. This degradation is not sporulation specific, for asporogenous diploids of a/a mating type degrade their vegetative proteins in a fashion similar to that of their a/α counterparts. Diploids lacking carboxypeptidase Y activity, prc1/prc1, show about 80% of wild-type levels of protein degradation, but are unimpaired in the production of normal asci. Diploids lacking proteinase B activity, prb1/prb1, show about 50% of wild-type levels of protein degradation. The effect on degradation of the proteinase B deficiency is epistatic to the degradation deficit attributable to the carboxypeptidase Y deficiency. The prb1 homozygotes undergo meiosis and produce spores, but the asci and, possibly, the spores are abnormal. Diploids homozygous for the pleiotropic pep4-3 mutation show only 30% of the wild-type levels of degradation when exposed to a sporulation regimen, and do not undergo meiosis or sporulation. ...

Introduction. Are Viruses Alive? What is a Virus? Viruses are very small microorganisms, much smaller than bacteria. They are among the smallest organisms known and consist of a fragment of genetic material inside a protective protein coat. Viruses can only reproduce inside host cells and as a result, they damage the cell when they do this. Once a virus has invaded a cell, it then takes over and makes copies of itself. Eventually the copies of the virus fill the whole host cell, causing it to burst open. The viruses are then passed out in the bloodstream, the airways, or by other routes. ...read more. Middle. They are arranged in a precise and highly repetitive pattern around the nucleic acid. A single type of capsomere or several chemically distinct types may make up the capsid. 3. Some viruses contain an envelope. An envelope is a membrane-like structure that encloses the nucleocapsid and is obtained from a host cell during the replication process. The envelope contains viral-specified ...
When reoviruses infect a cell, they induce that cell to secrete chemicals that both cause its own death and initiate the bodys immune response against that cell. Normal cells can protect themselves from this onslaught by secreting their own protective protein called PKR. However, many types of cancer cells inactivate PKR, leaving them vulnerable to reovirus attack.. In this study, the researchers took the growth media from dying reovirus-infected human melanoma cells and administered that extract to new tumor cells. Even in the absence of live virus, immune cells were recruited to attack the cancer cells.. Although this line of attack is only in the preliminary stages, I wonder if eventually doctors will be able to brew up great vats of cancer-fighting reovirus media. ...

... s were discovered in 1884 by Albrecht Kossel.[17] The word "histone" dates from the late 19th century and is derived from the German word "Histon", a word itself of uncertain origin - perhaps from the Greek histanai or histos. In the early 1960s, before the types of histones were known and before histones were known to be highly conserved across taxonomically diverse organisms, James F. Bonner and his collaborators began a study of these proteins that were known to be tightly associated with the DNA in the nucleus of higher organisms.[18] Bonner and his postdoctoral fellow Ru Chih C. Huang showed that isolated chromatin would not support RNA transcription in the test tube, but if the histones were extracted from the chromatin, RNA could be transcribed from the remaining DNA.[19] Their paper became a citation classic.[20] Paul T'so and James Bonner had called together a World Congress on Histone Chemistry and Biology in 1964, in which it became clear that there was no consensus on the ...

Furthermore, the current presence of enhances the transcriptional Cyclosporine activity of the viral LTR in T and macrophages cells, allowing the creation of ...
We compared and analyzed 16S rRNA and gene sequences for 97 clinical isolates of coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) by use of the GenBank, MicroSeq, EzTaxon, and BIBI databases. with >0.8% separation between species. Analysis of the gene proved to be AG14361 more discriminative for certain CNS species; further, this method exhibited better variation in the identification of CNS BTF2 clinical isolates. INTRODUCTION Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) are normal inhabitants of human skin and mucous membranes and have been considered previously as culture contaminants (31).
