Through protein degradation, the proteasome plays fundamental roles in different cell compartments. Although the composition of the 20S catalytic core particle (CP) has been well documented, little is known about the composition and dynamics of the regulatory complexes that play a crucial role in its activity, or about how they associate with the CP in(More)
In this prospective, randomized, blinded study, we assessed the analgesic efficacy of interscalene brachial plexus block (ISB), suprascapular nerve block (SSB), and intraarticular local anesthetic (IA) after arthroscopic acromioplasty. One-hundred-twenty patients were divided into 4 groups of 30. In Group SSB, the block was performed with 10 mL of 0.25%(More)
The simultaneous interaction of poly(A)-binding protein (PABP) with eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4G (eIF4G) and the mRNA 3' poly(A) tail promotes translation initiation. We previously showed that the interaction of PABP-interacting protein 1 (Paip1) with PABP and eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 (eIF3; via the eIF3g subunit) further(More)
In eukaryotic cells, intracellular protein breakdown is mainly performed by the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Proteasomes are supramolecular protein complexes formed by the association of multiple sub-complexes and interacting proteins. Therefore, they exhibit a very high heterogeneity whose function is still not well understood. Here, using a newly(More)
CL307-24I, the main component of the CL307-24 complex produced by Saccharopolyspora aurantiaca sp. nov., was found to be a potent inhibitor of yeast mitochondrial ATPase. CL307-24I displayed a high degree of activity towards some coryneform bacteria and also has been shown to possess an insecticidal activity. Its biological and physico-chemical properties(More)
A simple and selective assay system was developed in the search for new insecticidal substances from Actinomycetales strains propagated on solid culture media. The strains were first tested for their ability to produce antimicrobial compounds. Only strains displaying weak or no activity were retained and screened in the insecticidal bioassay. Microbial(More)
The eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4GI (eIF4GI) serves as a central adapter in cap-binding complex assembly. Although eIF4GI has been shown to be sensitive to proteasomal degradation, how the eIF4GI steady-state level is controlled remains unknown. Here, we show that eIF4GI exists in a complex with NAD(P)H quinone-oxydoreductase 1 (NQO1) in cell(More)
The proteasome is the main proteolytic system involved in intracellular proteins homeostasis in eukaryotes. Although the structure of proteasome complexes has been well characterized, the distribution of its activators and associated proteins are less studied. Here, we determine the composition and the stoichiometry of proteasome complexes and their(More)
The skin is the largest organ of the body, providing a protective barrier against bacteria, chemicals and physical insults while maintaining homeostasis in the internal environment. Such a barrier function the skin ensures protection against excessive water loss. The skin's immune defence consists of several facets, including immediate, non-specific(More)
The ubiquitin-proteasome system and autophagy are the two main proteolytic systems involved in, among other functions, the maintenance of cell integrity by eliminating misfolded and damaged proteins and organelles. Both systems remove their targets after their conjugation with ubiquitin. An interesting, yet incompletely understood problem relates to the(More)
