This paper reports the identification, expression, binding kinetics, and functional studies of two novel type III lamprey GnRH receptors (lGnRH-R-2 and lGnRH-R-3) in the sea lamprey, a basal vertebrate. These novel GnRH receptors share the structural features and amino acid motifs common to other known gnathostome GnRH receptors. The ligand specificity and(More)
The CstF polyadenylation factor is a multisubunit complex required for efficient cleavage and polyadenylation of pre-mRNAs. Using an RNase H-mediated mapping technique, we show that the 64-kDa subunit of CstF can be photo cross-linked to pre-mRNAs at U-rich regions located downstream of the cleavage site of the simian virus 40 late and adenovirus L3(More)
Glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) is linked to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD), senile plaques (SPs), and neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs), but the specific contributions of each of the GSK-3 α and β isoforms to mechanisms of AD have not been clarified. In this study, we sought to elucidate the role of each GSK-3α and GSK-3β using novel viral(More)
