Synthesis of the [NiFe] hydrogenases 1 and 2 of Escherichia coli is induced in response to anaerobiosis and is repressed when nitrate is present in the growth medium. The hydrogenase 1 and hydrogenase 2 enzymes are encoded by the polycistronic hyaABCDEF and hybOABCDEFG operons, respectively. Primer extension analysis was used to determine the initiation(More)
The Wilms' tumor suppressor protein WT1 is a transcriptional regulator involved in differentiation and the regulation of cell growth. WT1 is subject to alternative splicing, one isoform including a 17-amino acid region that is specific to mammals. The function of this 17-amino acid insertion is not clear, however. Here, we describe a transcriptional(More)
Cellular response to radiation damage is made by a complex network of pathways and feedback loops whose spatiotemporal organisation is still unclear despite its decisive role in determining the fate of the damaged cell. Revealing the dynamic sequence of the repair proteins is therefore critical in understanding how the DNA repair mechanisms work. There are(More)
Tamandarins A (1) and B (2), two natural products similar in structure to didemnin B (3), were recently isolated from a Brazilian marine ascidian of the family Didemnidae. The cytotoxicity of 1 was reported to be somewhat more potent in vitro than that of 3 against various human cancer cell lines. The present account describes the first total syntheses of 1(More)
Motivation Spatially clustered mutations within specific regions of protein structure are thought to result from strong positive selection for altered protein functions and are a common feature of oncoproteins in cancer. Although previous studies have used spatial substitution clustering to identify positive selection between pairs of proteins, the ability(More)
