Neutrophils are key players during Candida albicans infection. However, the relative contributions of neutrophil activities to fungal clearance and the relative importance of the fungal responses that counteract these activities remain unclear. We studied the contributions of the intra- and extracellular antifungal activities of human neutrophils using(More)
Post-translational modification by the ubiquitin-like protein SUMO is often regulated by cellular signals that restrict the modification to appropriate situations. Nevertheless, many SUMO-specific ligases do not exhibit much target specificity, and--compared with the diversity of sumoylation substrates--their number is limited. This raises the question of(More)
Posttranslational modifications of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), the eukaryotic processivity clamp for DNA polymerases, regulate the pathways by which replication problems are resolved. In the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, ubiquitylation of PCNA in response to DNA damage facilitates the replicative bypass of lesions, whereas(More)
