Telomere homeostasis, a process that is essential for the maintenance of chromosome integrity, is regulated by telomerase and a collection of associated proteins. By mass spectrometry we have identified a new telomeric protein encoded by the AtWHY1 (Arabidopsis thaliana Whirly 1) gene in Arabidopsis. AtWHY1 specifically binds the single-stranded plant(More)
N,N-dimethylamphetamine (DMA) is a methamphetamine analogue known to be a weaker central nervous system stimulant than methamphetamine. Although a major metabolite of DMA is known to be DMA N-oxide (DMANO), which may be catalysed by flavin-containing monooxygenase (FMO), the specific enzyme(s) involved in this biotransformation has not been identified.

Human chromosome ends associate with shelterin, a six-protein complex that protects telomeric DNA from being recognized as sites of DNA damage. The shelterin subunit TRF2 has been implicated in the protection of chromosome ends by facilitating their organization into the protective capping structure and by associating with several accessory proteins(More)
Telomere is an essential DNA-protein complex composed of repetitive DNA and binding proteins to protect the chromosomal ends in eukaryotes. Telomere length is regulated by a specialized RNA-dependent DNA polymerase, telomerase and associated proteins. We show here a potential role of STEP1 that was previously isolated by affinity chromatography in(More)
RTBP1 is a rice telomeric protein that binds to the duplex array of TTTAGGG repeats at chromosome ends. The DNA binding domain of RTBP1 contains a Myb-type DNA binding motif and a highly conserved C-terminal Myb extension that is unique to plant telomeric proteins. Using an electrophoretic mobility shift assay, we identified the C-terminal 110-amino acid(More)
