Polyamine regulation of ribosome pausing at the upstream open reading frame of S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase.
Synthesis of S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (AdoMetDC), a key regulated enzyme in the pathway of polyamine biosynthesis, is feedback-controlled at the level of translation by spermidine andExpand

Whole genome comparison of a large collection of mycobacteriophages reveals a continuum of phage genetic diversity
The bacteriophage population is large, dynamic, ancient, and genetically diverse. Limited genomic information shows that phage genomes are mosaic, and the genetic architecture of phage populationsExpand

Functional Analysis of the Yeast Glc7-Binding Protein Reg1 Identifies a Protein Phosphatase Type 1-Binding Motif as Essential for Repression of ADH2 Expression
ABSTRACT In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the protein phosphatase type 1 (PP1)-binding protein Reg1 is required to maintain complete repression of ADH2 expression during growth on glucose. Surprisingly,Expand

Studies with Chimeric Mpl/JAK2 Receptors Indicate That Both JAK2 and the Membrane-proximal Domain of Mpl Are Required for Cellular Proliferation*
The thrombopoietin (TPO) receptor c-Mpl, like other members of the cytokine receptor superfamily, requires the association and activation of Janus kinases (JAKs) for normal signal transduction. TheExpand

Activation of p21-Activated Kinase 2 by Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Nef Induces Merlin Phosphorylation
ABSTRACT The accessory human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) protein Nef activates the autophosphorylation activity of p21-activated kinase 2 (PAK2). Merlin, a cellular substrate of PAK2, isExpand
