Yap1 and Skn7 are two yeast transcriptional regulators that co-operate to activate thioredoxin (TRX2) and thioredoxin reductase (TRR1) in response to redox stress signals. Although they are both important for resistance to H2O2, only Yap1 is important for cadmium resistance, whereas Skn7 has a negative effect upon this response. The respective roles of Yap1(More)
The changes in gene expression underlying the yeast adaptive stress response to H2O2 were analyzed by comparative two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of total cell proteins. The synthesis of at least 115 proteins is stimulated by H2O2, whereas 52 other proteins are repressed by this treatment. We have identified 71 of the stimulated and 44 of the repressed(More)
By screening for Arabidopsis genes activated by ionising radiation (IR)-induced DNA damage, we have isolated a cDNA hybridising with a 3.2-kb mRNA that accumulates rapidly and strongly in irradiated cell suspensions or whole plants. The cDNA codes for a 110-kDa protein that is highly homologous to the 116-kDa vertebrate poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP-1).(More)
Screening for mRNAs that accumulate after DNA damage induced by ionizing radiation, we have isolated a 2.0-kb cDNA coding for a new Arabidopsis PEST-box protein named AtGR1 (A. thaliana gamma response 1) with an expression profile similar to that observed for several plant cell cycle-related proteins. Using an anti-AtGR1 antibody, we have shown that the(More)
To isolate new antioxidant genes, we have searched for activities that would rescue the tert-butyl hydroperoxide (t-BOOH)-hypersensitive phenotype of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain deleted for the gene encoding the oxidative stress response regulator Skn7. We report the characterization of AHP1, which encodes a 19-kDa protein similar to the AhpC/TSA(More)
The consequences of PARP-1 disruption or inhibition on DNA single-strand break repair (SSBR) and radio-induced lethality were determined in synchronized, isogenic HeLa cells stably silenced or not for poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) (PARP-1(KD)) or XRCC1 (XRCC1(KD)). PARP-1 inhibition prevented XRCC1-YFP recruitment at sites of 405 nm laser micro(More)
Radiosensitization caused by the poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor 4-amino-1,8-naphthalimide (ANI) was investigated in 10 asynchronously growing rodent (V79, CHO-Xrs6, CHO-K1, PARP-1+/+ 3T3, and PARP-1-/- 3T3) or human (HeLa, MRC5VI, IMR90, M059J, and M059K) cell lines, either repair proficient or defective in DNA-PK (CHO-Xrs6 and M059J) or(More)
We have cloned and sequenced a pea Lhcb3 gene, encoding a Photosystem II chlorophyll a/b-binding protein. Sequence analysis indicates that the gene contains two introns and predicts a polypeptide of 265 amino acids. The predicted polypeptide sequence is highly homologous to the polypeptide sequences deduced from Lhcb3 genes previously characterized in(More)
This work reports the isolation and preliminary characterization ofNicotiana plumbaginifolia mutants resistant to methylammonium.Nicotiana plumbaginifolia plants cannot grow on low levels of nitrate in the presence of methylammonium. Methylammonium is not used as a nitrogen source, although it can be efficiently taken up byNicotiana plumbaginifolia cells(More)
