State of the Arg Protein Methylation at Arginine Comes of Age
(see below), the most striking characteristic of this Posttranslational modification of proteins allows the cell emerging family of enzymes is the presence of an S-adento expand its repertoire beyondExpand
The structure and oligomerization of the yeast arginine methyltransferase, Hmt1
Protein methylation at arginines is ubiquitous in eukaryotes and affects signal transduction, gene expression and protein sorting. Hmt1/Rmt1, the major arginine methyltransferase in yeast, catalyzesExpand
Arginine methyltransferase affects interactions and recruitment of mRNA processing and export factors.
Hmt1 is the major type I arginine methyltransferase in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and facilitates the nucleocytoplasmic transport of mRNA-binding proteins through their methylation. Here weExpand
Arginine Methylation of Yeast mRNA-binding Protein Npl3 Directly Affects Its Function, Nuclear Export, and Intranuclear Protein Interactions*
Arginine methylation can affect both nucleocytoplasmic transport and protein-protein interactions of RNA-binding proteins. These effects are seen in cells that lack the yeast hnRNP methyltransferaseExpand
Human protein Sam68 relocalization and interaction with poliovirus RNA polymerase in infected cells.
A HeLa cDNA expression library was screened for human polypeptides that interacted with the poliovirus RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, 3D, using the two-hybrid system in the yeast SaccharomycesExpand
Genetic interactions of yeast eukaryotic translation initiation factor 5A (eIF5A) reveal connections to poly(A)-binding protein and protein kinase C signaling.
The highly conserved eukaryotic translation initiation factor eIF5A has been proposed to have various roles in the cell, from translation to mRNA decay to nuclear protein export. To further ourExpand
Analysis of the Yeast Arginine Methyltransferase Hmt1p/Rmt1p and Its in Vivo Function
Many eukaryotic RNA-binding proteins are modified by methylation of arginine residues. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae contains one major arginine methyltransferase, Hmt1p/Rmt1p, which is notExpand
Protein Arginine Methylation in Candida albicans: Role in Nuclear Transport
ABSTRACT Protein arginine methylation plays a key role in numerous eukaryotic processes, such as protein transport and signal transduction. In Candida albicans, two candidate protein arginineExpand

Since the term first appeared, food porn has typically referred to watching others cook on television or gazing at unattainable dishes in glossy magazines without actually cooking oneself. This forumExpand
KH domain integrity is required for wild-type localization of Sam68.
The protein Sam68 (Src-associated in mitosis, 68 kDa) has been found to bind to SH2 and to SH3 domain-containing proteins and to RNA. Although its protein-protein interactions implicate Sam68 in cellExpand
