The activities of isocitrate dehydrogenase (NAD), isocitrate dehydrogenase (NADP) and oxoglutarate dehydrogenase have been investigated in Saccharomyces cerevisiae grown in a variety of aerobic and hypoxic conditions, the latter including oxygen deprivation, high glucose concentration, addition of inhibitors of mitochondrial protein synthesis, respiratory(More)
During retroviral infection, viral capsids are subject to restriction by the cellular factor TRIM5α. Here, we show that dendritic cells (DCs) derived from human and non-human primate species lack efficient TRIM5α-mediated retroviral restriction. In DCs, endogenous TRIM5α accumulates in nuclear bodies (NB) that partly co-localize with Cajal bodies in a(More)
The activity of yeasts citrate synthase in cells grown under different hypoxic conditions has been investigated. A linear relationship between the citrate synthase activity and the respiratory capacity of the cells has been found. When Saccharomyces cerevisiae was grown on fermentable substrates the activity decreased as the concentration of sugars in the(More)
We have studied the isocitrate dehydrogenase of Tetrahymena pyriformis. This enzyme is able to utilize both NAD and NADP, but kinetic studies suggest that the enzymatic activity with NAD is not of physiological signifance. Some of the factors that might regualte the NADP-dependent isocitrate dehydrogenase were also studied. This enzyme has an absolute(More)
