Two Distinct Head-Tail Interfaces Cooperate to Suppress Activation of Vinculin by Talin*
Vinculin is autoinhibited by an intramolecular interaction that masks binding sites for talin and F-actin. Although a recent structural model explains autoinhibition solely in terms of theExpand

A Conformational Switch in Vinculin Drives Formation and Dynamics of a Talin-Vinculin Complex at Focal Adhesions*
Dynamic interactions between the cytoskeleton and integrins control cell adhesion, but regulatory mechanisms remain largely undefined. Here, we tested the extent to which the autoinhibitory head-tailExpand

A comparative proteomic analysis of rice seedlings under various high-temperature stresses.
To understand the responses of rice seedlings to different high-temperature stresses, seven-day-old rice seedlings were exposed to different high temperatures for 48 h, and the maximal quantum yieldExpand

Coincidence of Actin Filaments and Talin Is Required to Activate Vinculin*
Vinculin regulates cell adhesion by strengthening contacts between extracellular matrix and the cytoskeleton. Binding of the integrin ligand, talin, to the head domain of vinculin and F-actin to itsExpand

Removal of Congo Red from aqueous solution by cattail root.
In this study, cattail root was used to remove Congo Red (CR) from aqueous solution. The effects of operation variables, such as cattail root dosage, contact time, initial pH, ionic strength andExpand

Xenopus Actin-interacting Protein 1 (XAip1) Enhances Cofilin Fragmentation of Filaments by Capping Filament Ends*
Xenopus actin-interacting protein 1 (XAip1) is thought to promote fragmentation of actin filaments by cofilin. To examine the mechanism of XAip1, we measured polymer lengths by fluorescenceExpand

Regulating actin-filament dynamics in vivo.
The assembly and disassembly (i.e. turnover) of actin filaments in response to extracellular signals underlie a wide variety of basic cellular processes such as cell division, endocytosis andExpand

The tick-over theory revisited: formation and regulation of the soluble alternative complement C3 convertase (C3(H2O)Bb).
The molecular interactions between the components of the C3 convertase of the alternative pathway (AP) of complement and its regulators, in both surface-bound and fluid-phase form, are stillExpand
