The synthesis and the insertion of the metallocentre of NiFe-hydrogenases is a complex process, in which seven maturation enzymes plus ATP, GTP and carbamoyl phosphate are involved. The review summarizes what is known about the properties and activities of these auxiliary proteins, and postulates a pathway along which maturation may take place.
A temperature-sensitive mutation (act1-1) in the essential actin gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae can be suppressed by mutations in the SAC3 gene. A DNA fragment containing the SAC3 gene was sequenced. SAC3 codes for a 150 kDa hydrophillic protein which does not show any significant similarities with other proteins in the databases. Sac3 therefore is a(More)
Rabies virus (RABV) is a neurotropic virus that depends on long distance axonal transport in order to reach the central nervous system (CNS). The strategy RABV uses to hijack the cellular transport machinery is still not clear. It is thought that RABV interacts with membrane receptors in order to internalize and exploit the endosomal trafficking pathway,(More)
The SAC3 gene of Saccharomyces serevisiae has been implicated in actin function by genetic experiments showing that a temperature sensitive mutation in the essential actin gene (actl-1) can be suppressed by mutations in SAC3. An involvement of SAC3 in actin function is further suggested by the observation that the actin cytoskeleton is altered in SAC3(More)
UNLABELLED Rabies virus (RABV) spread is widely accepted to occur only by retrograde axonal transport. However, examples of anterograde RABV spread in peripheral neurons such as dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons indicated a possible bidirectional transport by an uncharacterized mechanism. Here, we analyzed the axonal transport of fluorescence-labeled RABV(More)
Membrane envelopment and budding of negative strand RNA viruses (NSVs) is mainly driven by viral matrix proteins (M). In addition, several M proteins are also known to be involved in host cell manipulation. Knowledge about the cellular targets and detailed molecular mechanisms, however, is poor for many M proteins. For instance, Nipah Virus (NiV) M protein(More)
International organizations and regimes are established in order to perform a particular function or achieve a certain goal. One of the basic questions to be asked about these institutions is therefore how effective they are in delivering what they were established and designed to achieve. To answer this question we need to, Žrst, determine precisely what(More)
In order to fabricate highly efficient heterojunction solar cells a very thin (d<6 nm), but well passivating intrinsic a-Si:H film is needed as buffer layer between the crystalline silicon (c-Si) base and the doped aSi:H emitter layer. In this work amorphous silicon films deposited by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition at low temperatures(More)
UNLABELLED Rabies virus (RABV) polymerase L together with phosphoprotein P forms the PL polymerase complex that is essential for replication and transcription. However, its exact mechanism of action, interactions with cellular factors, and intracellular distribution are yet to be understood. Here by imaging a fluorescently tagged polymerase(More)
African swine fever virus threatens pig production worldwide due to the lack of vaccines, for which generation of both deletion and insertion mutants is considered. For development of the latter, operational ASFV promoters of different temporal regulation and strengths are desirable. We therefore compared the capacities of putative promoter sequences from(More)
