One of the most potent insecticidal venom peptides described to date is Aps III from the venom of the trapdoor spider Apomastus schlingeri. Aps III is highly neurotoxic to lepidopteran crop pests, making it a promising candidate for bioinsecticide development. However, its disulfide-connectivity, three-dimensional structure, and mode of action have not been(More)
Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase-interacting multifunctional proteins (AIMPs) are nonenzymatic scaffolding proteins that comprise multisynthetase complex (MSC) with nine aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases in higher eukaryotes. Among the three AIMPs, AIMP3/p18 is strongly anchored to methionyl-tRNA synthetase (MRS) in the MSC. MRS attaches methionine (Met) to initiator(More)
Reactivation of the p53 pathway by a potential therapeutic antagonist, which inhibits HDM2 and HDMX, is an attractive strategy for drug development in oncology. Developing blockers towards conserved hydrophobic pockets of both HDMs has mainly focused on small synthetic compounds; however, this approach has proved challenging. Here we describe an approach to(More)
