A protein isolated from the culture supernatant of the soil bacterium, Streptomyces sp. F-287, exhibits cytocidal effects for both budding and fission yeasts, and causes morphological changes of yeasts and filamentous fungi. This protein, which was the first killer toxin-like protein for yeasts identified in the Streptomyces microorganism, was named SKLP(More)
The effect of substituting Pro25, located in the α-helical region of the cystatin A structure, with Ser has been studied. The structures of wild type and P25S cystatin A were determined by multidimensional NMR spectroscopy under comparable conditions. These two structures were virtually identical, and the α-helix between Glu15-Lys30 exists with(More)
Contractility of vascular smooth muscle depends on phosphorylation of myosin light chains, and is modulated by hormonal control of myosin phosphatase activity. Signaling pathways activate kinases such as PKC or Rho-dependent kinases that phosphorylate the myosin phosphatase inhibitor protein called CPI-17. Phosphorylation of CPI-17 at Thr38 enhances its(More)
