The pUL97 protein kinase encoded by human cytomegalovirus is a multifunctional determinant of the efficiency of viral replication and phosphorylates viral as well as cellular substrate proteins. Here, we report that pUL97 is expressed in two isoforms with molecular masses of approximately 90 and 100 kDa. ORF UL97 comprises an unusual coding strategy in that(More)
—In molecular communication (MC) systems, the expected number of molecules observed at the receiver over time after the instantaneous release of molecules by the transmitter is referred to as the channel impulse response (CIR). Knowledge of the CIR is needed for the design of detection and equalization schemes. In this paper, we present a training-based CIR(More)

The (p-R-phenyl)dimesitylboranes (R=Me(2)N, MeO, MeS, Br, I), (p-R-phenylethynyl)dimesitylboranes (R=Me(2)N, MeO, MeS, H), (E)-[2-(p-R-phenyl)ethenyl]dimesitylboranes (R=Me(2)N, H(2)N, MeO, MeS, H, CN, NO(2)), (E)-[2-(2-thienyl)ethenyl]dimesitylborane, and (E)-[2-(o-carboranyl)ethenyl]dimesitylborane have been prepared through the reaction of the(More)
— " THIS PAPER IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE STUDENT PAPER AWARD " By combining a bound on the absolute value of the difference of mutual information between two joint probability distributions with a fixed variational distance, and a bound on the probability of a maximal deviation in variational distance between a true joint probability distribution and an empirical(More)
The multifunctional protein kinase pUL97 of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) strongly determines the efficiency of virus replication. Previously, the existence of two pUL97 isoforms that arise from alternative translational initiation and show a predominant nuclear localization was described. Two bipartite nuclear localization sequences, NLS1 and NLS2, were(More)
Small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) conjugation and interaction play an essential role in many cellular processes. A large number of yeast proteins is known to interact non-covalently with SUMO via short SUMO-interacting motifs (SIMs), but the structural details of this interaction are yet poorly characterized. In the present work, sequence analysis of a(More)
— " THIS PAPER IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE STUDENT PAPER AWARD ". In this paper a numerical method is presented, which finds a lower bound for the mutual information between a binary and an arbitrary finite random variable with joint distributions that have a variational distance not greater than a known value to a known joint distribution. This lower bound can be(More)
Phosphoryl transfer is a key reaction in many aspects of metabolism, gene regulation, and signal transduction. One prominent example is the phosphoenolpyruvate:sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS), which represents an integral part of the bacterial sugar metabolism. The transfer between the enzymes IIA (Glc) and IIB (Glc) in the glucose-specific branch of(More)
Constitutive STAT signaling provides growth promoting signals in many forms of malignancy. We performed molecular modeling and molecular dynamics studies of the interaction between the regulatory Src homology 2 (SH2) domains of STAT3 and 6 with phosphorylated peptides of the herpesviral oncoprotein Tip, which facilitates Src kinase mediated STAT-activation(More)
