The nucleotide sequence of an almost double-stranded cDNA copy [Cochet, M., Perrin, F., Gannon, F., Krust, A., Chambon, P., McKnight, G. S., Lee, D. C., Mayo, K. E., and Palmiter, R. D. (1979) Nucleic Acids Res. 6, 2435-2452] of chicken ovotransferrin (conalbumin) mRNA has been determined. Taking into account the previously reported 5'-end sequence [Cochet,(More)
The exoproteome of the fungus Fusarium graminearum grown on glucose and on hop (Humulus lupulus, L.) cell wall has been investigated. The culture medium was found to contain a higher quantity of proteins and the proteins are more diverse when the fungus is grown on cell wall. Using both 1D and 2D electrophoresis followed by mass spectrometry analysis and(More)
Cinnamate 4-hydroxylase [CA4H; trans-cinnamate,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase (4-hydroxylating), EC 1.14.13.11] is a cytochrome P450 that catalyzes the first oxygenation step of the general phenylpropanoid metabolism in higher plants. The compounds formed are essential for lignification and defense against predators and pathogens. We recently reported the(More)
The one-hybrid system with an inverted CCAAT box as the DNA target sequence was used to identify proteins acting on key DNA sequences of the promoter of the topoisomerase IIalpha gene. Screening of cDNA libraries from the leukemia Jurkat cell line and from the adult human thymus resulted in the isolation of a novel protein of 793 amino acids (89,758 Da).(More)
Villin is a calcium-regulated actin-binding protein that caps, severs, and bundles actin filaments in vitro. This 92,500-D protein is a major constituent of the actin bundles within the microvilli of the brush border surface of intestinal and kidney proximal tubule cells. Villin is a very early marker of cells involved in absorption and its expression is(More)
The transcription of a set of 32 putative xylanase genes from Fusarium graminearum was examined by quantitative PCR after growth on different carbon sources (hop cell wall, xylan, xylose, or carboxymethylcellulose). Growing on plant cell wall medium, this fungus displays a great diversity of expression of xylan-related genes, with 30 being induced. A second(More)
DNA gyrase forms an A(2)B(2) tetramer involved in DNA replication, repair, recombination, and transcription in which the B subunit catalyzes ATP hydrolysis. The Thermus thermophilus and Escherichia coli gyrases are homologues and present the same catalytic activity. When compared with that of the E. coli 43K-5'-adenylyl-beta,gamma-imidodiphosphate complex,(More)
We have shown previously that an increase in the level of accumulated pS2 mRNA is first detectable in MCF-7 cells after 3 hr of estradiol treatment. Using in vitro nuclear run-on transcription with nuclei prepared from MCF-7 cells grown in the presence of estradiol or in estradiol-stripped medium, we demonstrate here that expression of the pS2 gene is(More)
Two simian virus 40 transcriptional promoter elements, the 72-base pair (bp) repeat and the 21-bp repeat region, induce chromatin structures of increased DNase I sensitivity when transposed elsewhere in the viral genome. The induction of a sufficiently long stretch of DNase I-sensitive chromatin leads to the appearance of a visible nucleosome-free region.
We present the complete sequence of an mRNA which is induced by estrogen in the human breast cancer cell line MCF-7 [pS2 mRNA, Masiakowski et al., Nucleic Acids Res. 10, 7895-7903 (1982)]. Primer extension and cloning of double-stranded cDNA (ds-cDNA) into a vector designed to make full-length cDNA were used to determine the sequence of the fifteen(More)
