The E3 ubiquitin ligase CRL4(Cdt2) targets proteins for destruction in S phase and after DNA damage by coupling ubiquitylation to DNA-bound proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA). Coupling to PCNA involves a PCNA-interacting peptide (PIP) degron motif in the substrate that recruits CRL4(Cdt2) while binding to PCNA. In vertebrates, CRL4(Cdt2) promotes(More)
The pET System is the most powerful system yet developed for the cloning and expression of recombinant proteins in Escherichia coli Target genes are cloned in pET plasmids under control of strong bacteriophage T7 transcription and (optionally) translation signals, expression is induced by providing a source of T7 RNA polymerase in the host cell (1-2). T7(More)
A new methodology for the preparation of substituted naphthalenes starting from readily available indenones, organometal reagents, and trimethylsilyldiazomethane via a catalytic rearrangement process is described. Hindered biaryl naphthalenes, including triortho-substituted biaryls, can be accessed through our method. Our results are consistent with a(More)
