DEAD-box RNA helicases play various, often critical, roles in all processes where RNAs are involved. Members of this family of proteins are linked to human disease, including cancer and viral infections. DEAD-box proteins contain two conserved domains that both contribute to RNA and ATP binding. Despite recent advances the molecular details of how these(More)
BACKGROUND Steroidogenic acute regulatory (StAR) protein related lipid transfer (START) domains are small globular modules that form a cavity where lipids and lipid hormones bind. These domains can transport ligands to facilitate lipid exchange between biological membranes, and they have been postulated to modulate the activity of other domains of the(More)
Neuropeptide Y (NPY), a 36‐amino‐acid peptide is abundantly expressed throughout the mammalian nervous system including: neocortex, hippocampus, striatum, amygdala, hypothalamus, thalamus, and brain stem. NPY has been implicated in the regulation of a number of different behaviors and neurophysiological functions, many of them part of the complex system(s)(More)
