A20 is a NF-kappaB-dependent gene that has dual anti-inflammatory and antiapoptotic functions in endothelial cells (EC). The function of A20 in smooth muscle cells (SMC) is unknown. We demonstrate that A20 is induced in SMC in response to inflammatory stimuli and serves an anti-inflammatory function via blockade of NF-kappaB and NF-kappaB-dependent proteins(More)
Rotaviruses, segmented double-stranded RNA viruses, co-opt the eukaryotic translation machinery with the aid of nonstructural protein 3 (NSP3), a rotaviral functional homolog of the cellular poly(A) binding protein (PABP). NSP3 binds to viral mRNA 3' consensus sequences and circularizes mRNA via interactions with eIF4G. Here, we present the X-ray structure(More)
Rotaviruses, the cause of life-threatening diarrhea in humans and cattle, utilize a functional homolog of poly(A) binding protein (PABP) known as nonstructural protein 3 (NSP3) for translation of viral mRNAs. NSP3 binds to viral mRNA 3' consensus sequences and circularizes the mRNA via interactions with eIF4G. The X-ray structure of the NSP3 RNA binding(More)
