The studies reported in this paper address the functional roles of the two distinct RNA ligases, band IV and band V, present in the seven polypeptide RNA editing complex from T.brucei (Rusché et al., 1997). Because a double gene knock‐out is inviable, the band IV RNA ligase protein appeared essential in procyclic (Rusché et al., 2001) and bloodstream (Schnaufer et al., 2001) trypanosomes, but it remained unclear what its specific role might be. Using extracts prepared from single allele band IV knock‐out cell lines, we now find that editing complexes depleted for band IV protein tend to disassociate (Figure 2B). Since enzymes of the editing complex normally appear to act in concert, deficient editing in band IV knock‐out cells could be due to loss of the ligation activity, to the destabilized complex causing altered effectiveness of other components, or to both effects. To address the catalytic role of the band IV ligase independently of any structural role the protein may serve, we ...
Abstract: Mitochondrial mRNAs in kinetoplastids require extensive U-insertion/deletion editing that progresses 3-to-5 in small blocks, each directed by a guide RNA (gRNA), and exhibits substrate and developmental stage-specificity by unsolved mechanisms. Here, we address compositionally related factors, collectively known as the mitochondrial RNA-binding complex 1 (MRB1) or gRNA-binding complex (GRBC), that contain gRNA, have a dynamic protein composition, and transiently associate with several mitochondrial factors including RNA editing core complexes (RECC) and ribosomes. MRB1 controls editing by still unknown mechanisms. We performed the first next-generation sequencing study of native subcomplexes of MRB1, immunoselected via either RNA helicase 2 (REH2), that binds RNA and associates with unwinding activity, or MRB3010, that affects an early editing step. The particles contain either REH2 or MRB3010 but share the core GAP1 and other proteins detected by RNA photo-crosslinking. Analyses of ...

Large complex RNAs, like the Tetrahymena ribozyme, tend to have complex kinetic folding pathways with multiple intermediates. Are these intermediates required for folding, or are they the result of kinetic traps? One way to discriminate between these possibilities is to vary folding conditions such as temperature or ion concentration or to make mutations that may destabilize the folding intermediates and to see how these changes affect folding rates. In the present study, the effects of [Mg2+] and temperature on the rates of P3-P7 formation (kP3-P7) and folding to the catalytically active structure (koverall) were compared for the wild-type Tetrahymena ribozyme and the A183U mutant ribozyme. Reducing the [Mg2+] leads to an increase in the value of koverall and reveals the presence of an additional kinetic trap on the folding pathway of both ribozymes. Interestingly, this trap is stabilized by high [Mg2+]. Recent studies with the self-splicing Tetrahymena group I intron pre-RNA, from which the ...
As with other infectious diseases, much discussion has been generated in the past about whether the malaria parasite population is structured into strains that have variable virulence (27). PfEMP1 presents us with a scenario in which a repertoire of molecules that play a central role in the host-parasite interaction, both through cytoadherence and immunogenicity, appear to be functionally and genetically differentiated within every parasite genome (13, 28), potentially giving each parasite line the ability to alter its pathogenicity depending on the combination of selection pressures experienced within the host (29). However, there is no direct evidence for links between the structure of the PfEMP1 antigen repertoire and a role for PfEMP1 in parasite immune evasion and pathogenicity.. A frequently cited study supporting a link between group A var expression and parasite virulence is based on the in vitro selection of a lab-adapted parasite isolate using pooled serum from semi-immune children ...

This project will elucidate critical processes that precisely edit mt-mRNAs in Trypanosoma brucei and its regulation and differential editing between life cycle stages. It examines the editosome endonuclease subcomplex which discriminates among thousands of editing sites (ESs), initiates editing and is a likely point of regulation. It uses novel cell lines and methods to examine three editosome endonucleases and their associated proteins and the roles of their domains, interactions and posttranslational protein modifications. Overall, the project will expand the understanding of a process that is essential for the parasite and may provide drug targets.. ...

DExD/H-box proteins are a diverse class of proteins that are implicated in RNA and RNP remodeling. They have sequence homology to DNA helicases and share conserved ATPase domains, suggesting that they use the energy of ATP binding and hydrolysis to mediate conformational rearrangements in RNAs. In the past, the action of DExD/H-box proteins has been characterized primarily on simple model substrates such as small RNA duplexes. It is not known how DExD/H-box proteins manipulate structured RNA, what determines target specificity and what molecular events follow their action. Here, using the well-characterized Tetrahymena group I intron ribozyme, I performed kinetic and thermodynamic studies to understand the mechanism of CYT-19 and related DExD/Hbox proteins. CYT-19 has been shown previously to facilitate the folding of several group I and group II introns. I demonstrated that CYT-19 acts as a chaperone, accelerating the re-folding of a long-lived misfolded species of the Tetrahymena group I ...
6-Methylisoxanthopterin (6MI) is a base analog for the nucleotide guanine. It is useful as a fluorescent indicator because unlike most other base analogs, quenching does not occur when it is incorporated into a double helix. In fact, it exhibits a 3 to 4-fold increase in quantum yield when it is incorporated into a duplex formation. This allows 6MI to be used to probe the dynamics of DNA or RNA helices using a technique such as fluorescence polarization anisotropy. 5-Bromouracil Moreno, Andrew.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Lectins and tetrahymena - A review. AU - Csaba, G.. PY - 2016/9/1. Y1 - 2016/9/1. N2 - The unicellular ciliate Tetrahymena is a complete organism, one of the most highly developed protozoans, which has specialized organelles performing each of the functions characteristic to the cells of higher ranked animals. It is also able to produce, store, and secrete hormones of higher ranked animals and also react to them. It produces lectins that can bind them and has functions, which are influenced by exogenous lectins. The review lists the observations on the relationship between lectins and Tetrahymena and try to construe them on the basis of the data, which are at our disposal. Considering the data, lectins can be used by Tetrahymena as materials for influencing conjugation, for stimulating hormone receptors, and by this, mimic the hormonal functions. Lectins can influence phagocytosis and movement of the cells as well as the cell division. As Tetrahymena can recognize both related ...
Nana asked me how I was feeling. I said I didnt know. I dont think I will know exactly until Wednesday. I do know that every morning after I drop Matthew off at school, I am overcome for a moment with a mix of emotions. Many times I am overcome when I think about all of the friends, family, and strangers to me who are thinking about Jacob, who are praying for Jacob. I think about God all of the time. I believe that his plan for Jacob is to be my teacher, to show me what is possible, to show me what is important, and to show me who I am. Sometimes I am overcome by the thought of what I will never know. But only for a moment. I have to drive. On Wednesday I can be overcome but for now we have to attend to life. By the way, I told Matthew that Jacob will be in the hospital next week and he said, "but then I wont have a brother." Then he wanted to know who he would be staying with and what Jacob was going to the hospital for. I said that Jacob had a boo-boo inside his head. Matthew asked if they ...

Trypanosoma brucei MARP-1 protein: from Trypanosoma brucei; high molecular weight, repetitive protein; amino acid has sequence has been determined
Various approaches were explored to reduce the off-target mutagenic effects of CRISPR/Cas9. One strategy is to use paired "nickases". Cas9 variants that cut one strand rather than both strands of the target DNA sites known as "nickases". Because individual nicks in the genome are repaired with high fidelity, simultaneous nicking via appropriately offset guide RNAs is required for double-stranded breaks and extends the number of specifically recognized bases for target cleavage. The paired nickases targeted to sites on opposite DNA strands separated by 4 to 100 bp can efficiently introduce both indel muta-tions and HDR events with a single-stranded DNA oligonucleotide donor template in mammalian cells [57,59,63,64]. Another proposed approach for reducing Cas9-induced off-target effects of gRNAs in human cells involves the use of truncated gRNAs [65]. These truncated gRNAs with a shortened 5 end are 17 or 18 nucleotide long. They generally function as efficiently as full-length gRNAs in directing ...
Some of our experiments from last year suggested that one could mismatch a few nucleotides at one end of the gRNA complementarity region without affecting the targeting activity," Joung explains. "That led us to wonder whether removing these nucleotides could make the system more sensitive to mismatches in the remaining sequence." Based on a natural system a species of bacteria uses against other pathogens, the CRISPR-Cas RGNs most widely used by researchers includes a 20-nucleotide targeting region within the gRNA. To test their theory, the MGH team constructed RGNs with progressively shorter gRNAs and found that, while gRNAs with targeting segments of 17 or 18 nucleotides were as or more efficient than full-length gRNAs in reaching their targets, those with 15- or 16-nucleotide targeting segments had reduced or no targeting activity. Subsequent experiments found that 17-nucleotide truncated RGNs efficiently induced the desired mutations in human cells with greatly reduced or undetectable ...
Here we have demonstrated that transgenic germline expression of Cas9-gRNA has the capacity to induce targeted mutations with extremely high efficiencies. In addition to the X-linked white gene in which mutation leads to a visible phenotype, we demonstrated that our method could indeed be applied to mutating autosomal genes whose mutant phenotypes were unknown. The overall mutation frequencies obtained using our system were much higher than the previously reported procedures based on transient expression of Cas9 and gRNA from injected DNA or RNA: The average mutation frequency of all gRNAs in our study was 57%, while those in the previous studies were 19% (Bassett et al. 2013), 29% (Yu et al. 2013), and 1% (Gratz et al. 2013). It should be noted, however, that direct comparison between the previous studies and ours is difficult as gRNAs with different sequences were used.. We further showed that simultaneous expression of two gRNAs efficiently induced internal deletion between the two target ...
