Tag7/PGRP, a recently characterized antimicrobial protein, is conserved from insects to mammals. Recently its involvement in Toll signalling in Drosophila was demonstrated. A number of genes representing a new family homologous to PGRP were identified in Drosophila and human. Here we describe a splicing pattern of the tagL gene, mouse member of tag7/PGRP(More)
Three conserved aspartate residues in the largest subunit of multisubunit RNA polymerases (RNAPs) coordinate two Mg2+ ions involved in the catalysis of phosphodiester bond synthesis. A structural model based on the stereochemistry of nucleotidyl transfer reaction as well as recent crystallographic data predict that these Mg2+ ions should also be involved in(More)
Various types of human blood cells were tested for expression of the Tag7/PGRP-SA and TagL/PGRP-L proteins, which belong to the family of proteins possessing the lysozyme-like peptidoglycan recognition protein (PGRP) domain. Expression regulation by several factors was demonstrated.
