In yeast the Sir proteins and Rap1p are key regulators of transcriptional silencing at telomeres and the silent mating-type loci. Rap1 and Sir4 also possess anchoring activity; the rotation of plasmids bound by Sir4 or Rap1 is constrained in vivo, and Rap1 or Sir4 binding can also correct the segregation bias of plasmids lacking centromeres. To investigate(More)
Sir2 is a protein deacetylase that mediates transcriptional silencing at the HM loci, telomeres, and rDNA repeats in yeast. To identify functionally significant regions of the Sir2 protein, we have characterized two types of mutations. First, we used random mutagenesis to create temperature-sensitive alleles of the SIR2 gene. Mutations conferring(More)
this is clearly below the clinical cut-off. Is a child with such a clinical profile not meaningfully different from a child exhibiting six or more symptoms in all settings? It has long been recognized that this is the case [22]. We argue that this vaguely defined criterion reflects a broader neglected issue of variability in number and contextual(More)
BACKGROUND Contextual variation in child disruptive behavior is well documented but remains poorly understood. We first examine how variation in observed disruptive behavior across interactional contexts is associated with maternal reports of contextual variation in oppositional-defiant behavior and functional impairment. Second, we test whether child(More)
