Structure and protein-protein interaction studies on Chlamydia trachomatis protein CT670 (YscO Homolog).
Comparative genomic studies have identified many proteins that are found only in various Chlamydiae species and exhibit no significant sequence similarity to any protein in organisms that do not… Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of 70 kD heat shock protein sequences suggests a chimeric origin for the eukaryotic cell nucleus
BACKGROUND The evolutionary relationships between archaebacteria, eubacteria and eukaryotic cells are of central importance in biology. The current view is that each of these three groups of… Expand

Two isoforms of adenosine kinase (AdK) have been identified in mammalian organisms with the long isoform (AdK-long) containing extra 20-21 amino acids at the N-terminus (NTS). The subcellular… Expand
Pentavalent ions dependency is a conserved property of adenosine kinase from diverse sources: identification of a novel motif implicated in phosphate and magnesium ion binding and substrate…
The catalytic activity of adenosine kinase (AK) from mammalian sources has previously been shown to exhibit a marked dependency upon the presence of pentavalent ions (PVI), such as phosphate (PO4),… Expand
Identification and characterization of human ribokinase and comparison of its properties with E. coli ribokinase and human adenosine kinase
The gene responsible for ribokinase (RK) in human/eukaryotic cells has not yet been identified/characterized. Blast searches with E. coli RK have identified a human protein showing significant… Expand

Transgenic cotton that produces insecticidal proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), often referred to as Bt cotton, is widely grown in many countries. Bt cotton with a single cry1A gene and… Expand
Conserved inserts in the Hsp60 (GroEL) and Hsp70 (DnaK) proteins are essential for cellular growth
The Hsp60 and Hsp70 chaperones contain a number of conserved inserts that are restricted to particular phyla of bacteria. A one aa insert in the E. coli GroEL and a 21–23 insert in the DnaK proteins… Expand
Genomic organization and linkage via a bidirectional promoter of the AP-3 (adaptor protein-3) mu3A and AK (adenosine kinase) genes: deletion mutants of AK in Chinese hamster cells extend into the…
The cDNA and genomic DNA for the mu3A subunit of the AP-3 (adaptor protein-3) complex were cloned from Chinese hamster cells. The AP-3 mu3A genes in Chinese hamster, human and mouse each comprise… Expand
Molecular Characterization of Chinese Hamster Cells Mutants Affected in Adenosine Kinase and Showing Novel Genetic and Biochemical Characteristics
BackgroundTwo isoforms of the enzyme adenosine kinase (AdK), which differ at their N-terminal ends, are found in mammalian cells. However, there is no information available regarding the unique… Expand
