We have determined the solution structure of ribosomal protein L18 from Thermus thermophilus. L18 is a 12.5 kDa protein of the large subunit of the ribosome and binds to both 5 S and 23 S rRNA. In the uncomplexed state L18 folds to a mixed alpha/beta globular structure with a long disordered N-terminal region. We compared our high-resolution structure with(More)
The solution structure of the ribosome-associated cold shock response protein Yfia of Escherichia coli was determined by nuclear magnetic resonance with a RMSD of 0.6A. Yfia shows a global beta-alpha-beta-beta-beta-alpha folding topology similar to its homologue HI0257 of Haemophilus influenzae and the double-strand-binding domain of Drosophila Staufen(More)
Three 5S rRNA-binding ribosomal proteins (L5, L18, TL5) of extremely thermophilic bacterium Thermus thermophilus have earlier been isolated. Structural analysis of their complexes with rRNA requires identification of their binding sites in the 5S rRNA. Previously, a TL5-binding site has been identified, a TL5-RNA complex crystallized, and its structure(More)
AIM To study the influence of long-term of vardenafil use on endothelial and erectile functions in patients with arteriogenic erectile dysfunction (ED). SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study included 74 arteriogenic ED patients (mean age 57.4 +/- 4.7 years). In addition to a comprehensive andrological examination, all the patients underwent the estimation of the(More)
