The physiological and pharmacological properties of the alpha 1E calcium (Ca) channel subtype do not exactly match any of the established categories described for native neuronal Ca currents. Many of the key diagnostic features used to assign cloned Ca channels to their native counterparts, however, are dependent on a number of factors, including cellular(More)
The Protein-RNA Interface Database (PRIDB) is a comprehensive database of protein-RNA interfaces extracted from complexes in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). It is designed to facilitate detailed analyses of individual protein-RNA complexes and their interfaces, in addition to automated generation of user-defined data sets of protein-RNA interfaces for(More)
RNA molecules play diverse functional and structural roles in cells. They function as messengers for transferring genetic information from DNA to proteins, as the primary genetic material in many viruses, as catalysts (ribozymes) important for protein synthesis and RNA processing, and as essential and ubiquitous regulators of gene expression in living(More)
The adenovirus 12S and 13S E1A proteins have been shown to relieve repression mediated by the cellular transcription factor YY1. The 13S E1A protein not only relieves repression but also activates transcription through YY1 binding sites. In this study, using a variety of in vivo and in vitro assays, we demonstrate that both E1A proteins can bind to YY1,(More)
