The constitutive androstane receptor (CAR) is a transcription factor that belongs to the nuclear receptor superfamily. CAR binds as a heterodimer with the retinoid X receptor α (RXRα) to CAR response elements (CAREs) and regulates the expression of various drug metabolizing enzymes and transporters. To identify CAR/RXRα binding sites in the human genome, we performed a modified yeast one-hybrid assay that enables rapid and efficient identification of genomic targets for DNA-binding proteins. DNA fragments were recovered from positive yeast colonies by PCR and sequenced. A motif enrichment analysis revealed that the most frequent motif was a direct repeat (DR) of RGKTCA-like core sequence spaced by 4 bp. Next, we predicted 149 putative CAR/RXRα binding sites from 414 unique clones, by searching for DRs, everted repeats (ERs) and inverted repeats (IRs) of the RGKTCA-like core motif. Based on gel mobility shift assays, the CAR/RXRα heterodimer could directly interact with the 108 predicted sequences,
In recent years, substantial progress has been made in the identification of proteins involved in peroxisome biogenesis. However, with the exception of the peroxisome-targeting signal receptors and the receptor docking proteins, the function of most of these proteins, called peroxins, remains largely unknown. One step toward elucidating the function of a protein is to identify its interacting partners. We have used a non-transcription-based bacterial two-hybrid system to analyze the interactions among a set of 12 mammalian peroxins and a yeast protein three-hybrid system to investigate whether proteins that interact with the same peroxin and have overlapping binding sites cooperate or compete for this site. Here we report a detailed interaction map of these peroxins and demonstrate that (i) farnesylation, and not the CAAX motif, of Pex19p strongly enhances its affinity for Pex13p; (ii) the CAAXmotif, and not farnesylation, of Pex19p strongly enhances its affinity for Pex11pβ; and (iii) the ...
To capture the Myo1p-interacting proteins for in vitro validation of the physical interactions identified by iMYTH, and for their subsequent identification by coimmunoprecipitation (coIP), we employed a modified pull-down approach (Babu et al. 2009) using a TAP epitope fused to the Myo1p C-terminus (Myo1-TAP). The Myo1-TAP bait strain was transformed with a full-length prey protein in expression vector BG1805, a URA3 multicopy 2 μ plasmid containing a GAL1 promoter (Gelperin et al. 2005), using the standard lithium acetate procedure (Gietz and Woods 2006). The Myo1 protein was captured using the calmodulin-binding peptide in the TAP epitope. Briefly, 40 ml of culture was grown for 2 d in YPD at 30° at 200 rpm. Subsequently, the cells were centrifuged at 3000 rpm for 3 min, and washed twice with 20 ml IPLB buffer (20 mM Hepes KOH, pH 7.4, 150 mM KOAc, 2 mM Mg(Ac)2, 2 mM CaCl2, and 10% glycerol). For plasmid expression, cells were resuspended in YP-GAL, and incubated for 2-4 hr. The yeast cells ...
Easy two-hybrid library construction enriched for longer inserts. Two highly specialized yeast strains that are optimized for exceptionally stringent two-hybrid library screening and two-hybrid library construction.
Four proteins namely U2AF35, SRp40, mDomino and Ddx1 were identified as PHF5a interacting partners by using the murine 11.5-days embryo yeast two-hybrid library screening.PHF5a interacting domains of SR proteins U2AF35 and SRp40 were restricted to Cterminal arginine-serine rich domains (RS).Other members of the SR protein family namely SRp20, SRp30c and ASF/SF2 were shown that they can not bind to the PHF5a protein by using a directed yeast twohybrid assay and the a-galactosidase assay.Protein interactions between PHF5a and U2AF35, SRp40, mDomino and Ddx1 were verified by using in vitro coimmmunoprecipitation assays.Mapping of binding sites by using coimmunoprecipitation experiments and a directed yeast two-hybrid assay demonstrated that both ATP-dependent helicases mDomino and Ddx1 interact with the C-terminal segment of PHF5a. In addition, the N-terminal part of PHF5a was identified as a region responsible for binding to splicing proteins U2AF35 and SRp40. By using the yeast-three hybrid assay ...
proteins function in similar ways. AGS1 binds to the Gβ1 subunit of heterotrimeric G proteins and we have used yeast two-hybrid studies to show that Rhes binds selectively to Gβ1, Gβ2 and Gβ3 subunits. Binding to the Gβ subunits involves the cationic regions of AGS1 and Rhes, and we used Rhes-AGS1 chimeras to show that their different cationic regions determine the Gβ-specificity of the interactions. Possible implications of this interaction for the activity of Rhes are discussed.. ...

PMID: 14559993. SRrp86 is a unique member of the SR protein superfamily containing one RNA recognition motif and two serine-arginine (SR)-rich domains separated by an unusual glutamic acid-lysine (EK)-rich region. Previously, we showed that SRrp86 could regulate alternative splicing by both positively and negatively modulating the activity of other SR proteins and that the unique EK domain could inhibit both constitutive and alternative splicing. These functions were most consistent with the model in which SRrp86 functions by interacting with and thereby modulating the activity of target proteins. To identify the specific proteins that interact with SRrp86, we used a yeast two-hybrid library screen and immunoprecipitation coupled to mass spectrometry. We show that SRrp86 interacts with all of the core SR proteins, as well as a subset of other splicing regulatory proteins, including SAF-B, hnRNP G, YB-1, and p72. In contrast to previous results that showed activation of SRp20 by SRrp86, we now ...
Protein-protein interactions mediate fundamental biological processes. Yeast two-hybrid assays can be used to detect protein-protein interactions in a fast and large-scale manner. However, in traditional yeast-two hybrid assays, the prey and bait proteins must be located in the nucleus to activate reporter genes. This requirement limits the application of this assay in detecting membrane protein ...

We present a technological advancement for the estimation of the affinities of Protein-Protein Interactions (PPIs) in living cells. A novel set of vectors is introduced that enables a quantitative yeast two-hybrid system based on fluorescent fusion proteins. The vectors allow simultaneous quantification of the reaction partners (Bait and Prey) and the reporter at the single-cell level by flow cytometry. We validate the applicability of this system on a small but diverse set of PPIs (eleven protein families from six organisms) with different affinities; the dissociation constants range from 117 pM to 17 µM. After only two hours of reaction, expression of the reporter can be detected even for the weakest PPI. Through a simple gating analysis, it is possible to select only cells with identical expression levels of the reaction partners. As a result of this standardization of expression levels, the mean reporter levels directly reflect the affinities of the studied PPIs. With a set of PPIs with known
Research in our lab is focused on membrane protein-protein interactions (PPIs), with a particular interest in disease progression due to altered signalling pathways. To this end, the lab has developed two new technologies to enable research in this notoriously difficult environment.. The first was the Membrane Yeast Two-Hybrid (MYTH) system. Based on the split-ubiquitin principle, bait and prey proteins are fused to Cub (C-terminal ubiquitin domain) plus a transcription factor (TF) and NubG (N-terminal domain, I13G mutation), respectively. A bait and prey interaction brings the two domains of ubiquitin into close proximity, forming pseudo-ubiquitin. This is recognized by deubiquitinating enzymes, which cleave off the TF. The TF enters the nucleus and activates a reporter system, allowing detection of interacting proteins.. MYTH has been successfully used in a number of studies, including building a comprehensive map of the yeast ABC transporter interactome (Snider et al. [2013] Nature ...
Alternative splicing of precursor mRNA is a fundamental mechanism to generate multiple proteins from a single gene. Although constitutive and alternative mRNA splicing is temporally and spatially regulated, deregulation of mRNA splicing could cause development, progression, and metastasis of tumors. Through yeast two-hybrid screening of a human breast cDNA library using estrogen receptor- (ER) as bait, we identified a novel nuclear receptor box containing full-length protein, nuclear protein E3-3 (NPE3-3). Our results revealed that NPE3-3 associates with not only ER but also with splicing factors, serine/arginine-rich protein (SRp)-30c, SRp40, and splicing factor SC-35, suggesting that NPE3-3 is likely to be involved in regulation of mRNA splicing. Accordingly, transient expression of NPE3-3 in cells resulted in expected splicing of the CD44 control minigene. We also discovered that NPE3-3-overexpressing clones produced a novel, previously unrecognized, alternatively spliced variant of ER ...
Dear colleagues, We are maintaining a Web page devoted to the yeast two-hybrid system. An integral part of this page is a database of false positives, isolated in two-hybrid screenings. We are also trying to analyze the parameters of YTH screens to suggest the optimal settings.

Activation of PXR by Tian Xian in Cell-Based Assays. To determine the extent to which the extract of tian xian activated human PXR we used a previously described cell-based reporter gene assay (Brobst et al., 2004). In CV-1 cells, 10 μM rifampicin activated the XREM-LUC reporter gene in the presence of transfected human PXR (Fig. 1). A stock extract of tian xian (250 mg/ml) was used to treat transfected CV-1 cells. A clear concentration response was also observed with increasing amounts of tian xian extract (Fig. 1). Thus, in CV-1 cells an extract of tian xian produced efficacious activation of human PXR. The activation of PXR by tian xian at the highest concentrations examined was comparable with that of 10 μM rifampicin, a well known PXR ligand.. Modulation of PXR-Cofactor Interactions in the Mammalian Two-Hybrid System. The interaction between accessory protein cofactors and PXR is modulated by the presence of activating ligands in cells. Specifically, in the absence of activating ligands ...
The Bcl-2-associated athanogene (BAG) family is an evolutionarily conserved, multifunctional group of cochaperones that perform diverse cellular functions ranging from proliferation to growth arrest and cell death in yeast, in mammals, and, as recently observed, in plants. The Arabidopsis genome contains seven homologs of the BAG family, including four with domain organization similar to animal BAGs. In the present study we show that an Arabidopsis BAG, AtBAG7, is a uniquely localized endoplasmic reticulum (ER) BAG that is necessary for the proper maintenance of the unfolded protein response (UPR). AtBAG7 was shown to interact directly in vivo with the molecular chaperone, AtBiP2, by bimolecular fluorescence complementation assays, and the interaction was confirmed by yeast two-hybrid assay. Treatment with an inducer of UPR, tunicamycin, resulted in accelerated cell death of AtBAG7-null mutants. Furthermore, AtBAG7 knockouts were sensitive to known ER stress stimuli, heat and cold. In these ...
The fluorescent two-hybrid assay (F2H) is a technique for the validation and characterization of protein-protein interactions in vivo. It can be used for studying the modulation of interactions with inhibitors or activators, for compound screening and for confirmation of results from other protein-protein interaction screens such as co-immunoprecipitation studies.. In short, two proteins, bait and prey protein, are fused to GFP and RFP, respectively. A BHK cell line is transformed with ChromoTeks F2H platform reagent and two DNA plasmids coding for the GFP-bait protein and the RFP-prey protein. The interaction of bait protein and prey protein can be detected by co-localization of a green and a red fluorescent spot in the nucleus of the BHK cells with an epi-fluorescence microscope..

OUTLINE: Using molecular laboratory techniques, this study examines the biochemical mechanisms by which LZAP activates transcriptional, tumor suppressive activity (both p53-dependent and p53-independent) of ARF and inhibits transcriptional, tumorigenic activity of NF-kB. LZAP regulation of newly identified ARF activities, such as S-phase delay and ARF-mediated B23 degradation are also evaluated. LZAPs tumor suppressive activity is assessed in vivo using a conditional knockout vector to target LZAP in mice and to observe for spontaneous and induced tumor formation. Laboratory analyses used to determine study endpoints include standard recombinant DNA, recombinant protein expression and purification, cell culture and transfection, cell labeling, reporter assays, flow cytometry, yeast-two hybrid, immunoprecipitation, immunoblotting, immunofluorescence, TUNEL assay, ELISA assay, Southern blotting, and protein and gene expression. ...
I have a protein-protein interaction that I have originally detected in bacterial two-hybrid system and pull-down experiments with bacterially expressed proteins also show positive interaction. Now I would like to confirm this interaction also in eukaryotic cells by coimmunoprecipitating the two. Since I do not have antibodies for these proteins, I am using GFP -(Bait) and HA-tagged (target) proteins and thus transfected cells. I have performed the experiment couple of times, and it kind of looks promising: I have positive interaction when the two proteins are present and all negative controls are negative. What makes me doubt is that I do not concentrate the target protein in the immunoprecipitation, that is that my band is weaker in the immunoprecipitation sample than in the original cell lysate sample. In order to have positive interaction do I have to be able to concentrate the target protein? So, what do you think, are these two proteins interacting ...

RNA-protein interactions are pivotal in fundamental cellular processes such as translation, mRNA processing, early development, and infection by RNA viruses. However, in spite of the central importance of these interactions, few approaches are available to analyze them rapidly in vivo. We describe a yeast genetic method to detect and analyze RNA-protein interactions in which the binding of a bifunctional RNA to each of two hybrid proteins activates transcription of a reporter gene in vivo. We demonstrate that this three-hybrid system enables the rapid, phenotypic detection of specific RNA-protein interactions. As examples, we use the binding of the iron regulatory protein 1 (IRP1) to the iron response element (IRE), and of HIV trans-activator protein (Tat) to the HIV trans-activation response element (TAR) RNA sequence. The three-hybrid assay we describe relies only on the physical properties of the RNA and protein, and not on their natural biological activities; as a result, it may have broad ...
The S. cerevisiae membrane protein Jen1 is a monocarboxylate-proton symporter which after the addition of glucose to lactic acid-grown cells triggers loss of Jen1p activity and repression of JEN1 gene expression (Paiva et al., 2002; Andrade et al., 2001). This downregulation of the permease is dependent on phosphorylation and ubiquitylation mechanisms, both of which are dependent on proteins interacting with the Jen1p. To identify the proteins involved in this process we developed a system combined structure prediction and the yeast two-hybrid system to overcome the difficulties associated to measuring protein interactions with membrane proteins. Measuring protein interactions between membrane proteins or between membrane proteins and other proteins has proved to be very difficult. The commonly used yeast two-hybrid systems are inefficient for membrane proteins since the interaction must take place in the cell nucleus between soluble proteins. An advantage of the strategy used in our approach is ...
HIV-1 tat, a strong transactivator, is essential for the HIV-1 replication and AIDS progression. The Tat function is markedly inhibited by human anti-oncogene p53. This work was initiated to identify the p53-associated inhibitory mechanism on tat-mediated transactivation. Inhibitory function of P53 was confirmed by co-transfection of tat-expressing Jurkat cells with LTR-CAT plasmid, or H3Tl cells (LTR-CAT integrated HeLa cells) with different ratio of pSV-tat/pCDNA-p53 plasmids. Results from the direct protein-protein .interaction between soluble p53 and tat, and yeast two-hybrid experiments showed that the co-suppression mechanism is unlikely to be due to the direct interaction. CAT activity was not affected by tat in Jurkat cells which were transfected with p53-promoter-CAT or p53-enhancer-CAT, suggesting that the tat-mediated p53 suppression is not directly associated with p53-promoter. Finally, we have tested protein kinase activity in p53-tranfected Jurkat cells, which might phosphorylate ...
Epidermal growth factor-like domain 7 (EGFL7) is a secreted protein that has been implicated in cell migration and blood vessel formation. The receptor that EGFL7 binds is unknown. The Notch pathway is involved in both angiogenesis and neural development. Notch is a transmembrane receptor that is cleaved to release the transcriptional regulator NICD (the Notch intracellular domain) in response to ligands, such as Jagged. Schmidt et al. showed by yeast two-hybrid experiments and coimmunoprecipitation and binding assays that EGFL7 and the extracellular domain of Notch interacted and that the interaction could be mediated by either the Emilin-like domain (EMI) or the EGF-like domains of EGFL7 and required the EGF-like repeats on Notch. When Jagged and Notch were coexpressed with increasing amounts of EGFL7, the interaction between Jagged and Notch was disrupted. EGFL7 decreased Notch signaling in response to Jagged. In a more physiological setting, the effect of EGFL7 on cultured murine neural stem ...

In several cases, the homologous WDR proteins are highly conserved throughout the length of the proteins, and appear to operate in highly analogous mechanisms, with specificity in function conferred by changes in upstream signaling pathways and/or downstream effectors. One case is AGB1, the only clear Arabidopsis ortholog of Gβ [31] (Fig. 1). Loss of AGB1 function leads to developmental pleiotropy including shortened fruits [32] and changes in patterns of cell division in the hypocotyl and root [33]. These phenotypes are associated with the derepression of genes that are normally turned on by auxin, suggesting a role for AGB1 as a negative regulator of auxin signaling [33]. There appears to be one Gα-like protein (GPA1) and two Gγ-like proteins (AGG1 and AGG2) in the Arabidopsis proteome [31], and molecular modeling and yeast two-hybrid studies of potential interactions among AGB1, GPA1 and AGG1 are not inconsistent with the possibility that these could form a heterotrimeric protein [33, 34]. ...
To decipher the mechanism affecting this response, the authors examined Pi signaling-related transcription factors, finding that mutants affecting PHOSPHATE STARVATION RESPONSE2 (PHR2) did not alter the response of leaf angle to Pi, but mutants affecting the SPX (Syg1/Pho81/XPR1) domain proteins SPX1 and SPX2 did. The spx1 and spx2 mutants had a wider leaf angle and longer lamina joint cells than wild-type rice, and the overexpressors had smaller cells, narrower leaf angles, and thus more-erect leaves. SPX proteins generally interact with and inhibit transcription factors. Therefore, the authors next used yeast two-hybrid assays to identify proteins interacting with SPX1. They found the transcription factor REGULATOR OF LEAF INCLINATION1 (RLI1), which shows some similarity to PHR family genes, but lacks the coiled-coil domains. They confirmed the SPX1-RLI1 interaction by coimmunoprecipitation and bimolecular fluorescence complementation.. Mutant and overexpression studies supported the ...
BioAssay record AID 747467 submitted by ChEMBL: Agonist activity at human estrogen receptor-beta by yeast two-hybrid assay in presence of SRC1.
Purpose: : To search for proteins that bind to the Usher syndrome type 3 protein Clarin-1. Methods: : Yeast two-hybrid screening (Fields method) was performed using three baits representing the two predicted extra-cellular loops and the intracellular C-terminal region of the mouse Clarin-1 protein. The expression of recombinant GAL4-baits was confirmed by Western blot analysis. Suitability of the baits for screening was additionally confirmed by transactivation activity tests. Each of the baits was used to screen approximately 1.5 million mouse brain cDNAs for interaction. Isolated positive clones were identified by DNA sequencing and database searching. Potential interaction partners of Clarin-1 were subjected to the mating assay. Results: : Screening the mouse cDNA library with three GAL4-Clarin-1 baits identified 125 positive clones that potentially bind to Clarin-1. 110 of the clones were sequenced, of which 41 were in the correct reading frame with GAL4. Most of those 41 clones were ...

The low-density lipoprotein receptor related protein 1 (LRP1) has been implicated in Alzheimers disease (AD) but its signalling has not been fully evaluated. There is good evidence that the cytoplasmic domain of LRP1 is involved in protein-protein interactions, important in the cell biology of LRP1. We carried out three yeast two-hybrid screens to identify proteins that interact with the cytoplasmic domain of LRP1. The screens included both conventional screens as well as a novel, split-ubiquitin-based screen in which an LRP1 construct was expressed and screened as a transmembrane protein. The split-ubiquitin screen was validated in a screen using full-length amyloid protein precursor (APP), which successfully identified FE65 and FE65L2, as well as novel interactors (Rab3a, Napg, and ubiquitin b). Using both a conventional screen as well as the split-ubiquitin screen, we identified NYGGF4 as a novel LRP1 interactor. The interaction between LRP1 and NYGGF4 was validated using two-hybrid assays,

All of the non-structural proteins of poliovirus, including their processing precursors, are involved in the replication of the viral RNA genome. These proteins assemble into a replication complex, which also contains the viral RNA and cellular factors. An understanding of how these viral proteins interact with each other would enhance our understanding of the molecular events occurring during poliovirus infection of the cell. Previously, we have employed the yeast two-hybrid system to construct two separate linkage maps for the polioviral P2 and P3 proteins, respectively. In the present study, we have searched for interacting pairs between the P2 and P3 proteins in a similar inducible yeast two-hybrid system. Although, the primary functions of the proteolytic products of the P2 and P3 domains of the polyprotein in the viral life cycle are different, we observed significant interactions between 2CATPase and 3AB; 2Apro and 3A, 3Cpro or 3Dpol; 2B and 3A or 3AB. All of the interactions were measured in the
In this report, we provide several lines of evidence that p130Cas is a downstream mediator of FAK-promoted cell migration. First, a mutation of P712/715A in FAK abolished its ability to promote CHO cell migration (Fig. 3). The proline-rich region on FAK spanning amino acids 712-718 has been mapped as the primary binding site for p130Cas through its SH3 domain (Polte and Hanks, 1995; Harte et al., 1996), although a second proline-rich region (amino acids 875-884) can also mediate FAK binding to p130Cas (Harte et al., 1996; Polte and Hanks, 1997). In vivo coimmunoprecipitation experiments showed that FAK/ p130Cas association was reduced but not abolished by the P712/715A mutation (Fig. 6), indicating that the second proline-rich region on FAK may mediate some binding to p130Cas, as demonstrated previously (Harte et al., 1996; Polte and Hanks, 1997). However, binding of p130Cas to an alternative site clearly does not allow for FAK-promoted migration. It has also been suggested that p130Cas may ...
Yeast Two Hybrid system uses a reporter gene to detect the interaction of pair of proteins inside the yeast cell nucleus. In the yeast Two Hybrid System, The interaction of target protein to the protein will bring together transcriptional activator, which then switches on the expression of reporter gene.
I assume you mean all the interactions occur outside the cell? One of the advantages of standard yeast two hybrid systems is that they level the playing field with respect to protein localization. This can lead to false positives (extra-cellular/ intra-cellular etc.) but should not be a problem for you. The problem of course is if the interaction you are looking for is dependent on a post-translational modification not applied to intracellular proteins (glycosylation etc...). If your matrix protein contains a transmembrane domain I would suggest removing it as well. There are other membrane based two hybrid systems out there which mount the bait protein onto the intracellular leaf of the cell membrane. These systems work by triggering a signal transduction cascade when the bait/ prey interact. Of course they are also internal so are bound by the same limitations as the standard transcription factor methods.

Unlike for other retroviruses, only a few host cell factors that aid the replication of foamy viruses (FVs) via interaction with viral structural components are known. Using a yeast-two-hybrid (Y2H) screen with prototype FV (PFV) Gag protein as bait we identified human polo-like kinase 2 (hPLK2), a member of cell cycle regulatory kinases, as a new interactor of PFV capsids. Further Y2H studies confirmed interaction of PFV Gag with several PLKs of both human and rat origin. A consensus Ser-Thr/Ser-Pro (S-T/S-P) motif in Gag, which is conserved among primate FVs and phosphorylated in PFV virions, was essential for recognition by PLKs. In the case of rat PLK2, functional kinase and polo-box domains were required for interaction with PFV Gag. Fluorescently-tagged PFV Gag, through its chromatin tethering function, selectively relocalized ectopically expressed eGFP-tagged PLK proteins to mitotic chromosomes in a Gag STP motif-dependent manner, confirming a specific and dominant nature of the Gag-PLK ...

To dissect how NSM00158 functions, we evaluated its effects on the interactions of CtBP2-p300, CtBP2-E1A, p300-c-MYC and p300-c-JUN in yeast cells. The CtBP2-p300 interaction, and the interactions of CtBP2-E1A, p300-c-MYC and p300-c-JUN were previously reported in other publications (Faiola et al., 2005; Lee et al., 1996; Zhao et al., 2008). Accordingly, we cotransformed different combinations of plasmids, including pGADT7-CtBP2 + pGBKT7-p300, pGADT7-CtBP2 + pGBKT7-E1A-Flag, pGADT7-c-MYC + pGBKT7-p300, and pGADT7-c-JUN + pGBKT7-p300, into AH109 yeast cells. After determining the protein levels in positive colonies (Supplementary Fig. S3A), we examined and verified protein interactions in the SC-HTL medium (Supplementary Fig. S3B, top panel). We next evaluated the effects of NSM00158 on these interactions. As shown in Supplementary Fig. S3B (bottom panel), supplementation with 4 μM NSM00158 inhibited the growth of the cells coexpressing pGADT7-CtBP2 + pGBKT7-p300 or pGADT7-CtBP2 + ...
This gene encodes a protein that contains a PDZ (post synaptic density protein (PSD95), Drosophila disc large tumor suppressor (Dlg1), and zonula occludens-1 protein (zo-1) domain at the N-terminus followed by a FERM domain. The encoded protein is involved in signal transduction. The PDZ domain is thought to function in protein-protein interactions, mainly by binding to specific C-terminal peptides of other proteins. The FERM domain is found in proteins that are localized to the plasma membrane and are associated with the cytoskeleton. [provided by RefSeq, May 2017 ...

It doesnt matter. McCain doesnt have a chance. Osamas too good. The debates will be one-sided. He has a better chance against Hillary. I can get into the explanation that the gods only use their power to hurt the disfavored, but youve already heard it. Consistant with this, expect gas to climb to $4 if not $5 this summer, ensuring the election is delivered to the wrong candidate::::Theyve used the price of gas to punish the people for electing the wrong person. In addition, public response to recent poor economic reports ensures conservative behavior, another factor which is intentionally damaging to McCains chances ...
