ADA1, a novel component of the ADA/GCN5 complex, has broader effects than GCN5, ADA2, or ADA3
TLDR
The cloning, sequencing, and initial characterization of a novel ADA gene, ADA1, which displays defects similar to those of ada5 mutants and different from those of the other mutants with respect to promoters affected, inositol auxotrophy, and Spt- phenotypes are described. Expand
Functional similarity and physical association between GCN5 and ADA2: putative transcriptional adaptors.
TLDR
It is shown that gcn5 mutants share properties with ada mutants, including slow growth, temperature sensitivity and reduced activation by the VP16 and GCN4 activation domains, and the functional importance of the bromodomain of GCN5, a sequence found in other global transcription factors such as the SWI/SNF complex and the TATA binding protein‐associated factors. Expand
ADA3, a putative transcriptional adaptor, consists of two separable domains and interacts with ADA2 and GCN5 in a trimeric complex
TLDR
It is shown that their gene products form a heterotrimeric complex in vitro, with ADA2 as the linchpin holding ADA3 and GCN5 together, and activation by LexA-ADA3 fusions in vivo are regulated by the levels of ADA2. Expand
Calcineurin and Its Regulator Sra/DSCR1 Are Essential for Sleep in Drosophila
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CN and its regulation by Sra are required for normal sleep in Drosophila and a critical role of Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent signaling in sleep regulation is identified. Expand
ADA5/SPT20 links the ADA and SPT genes, which are involved in yeast transcription
TLDR
Most interestingly, ADA5 is identical to SPT20, showing that it shares phenotypes with the ADA and SPT family of genes, and presents a speculative pathway of transcriptional activation involving the ADA2-ADA3-GCN5-ADA5 complex and the TATA-binding protein. Expand
Dioonopsis nipponica gen. et. sp. nov., a new cycad from the palaeogene of Japan
Abstract Cycadean leaves from the Palaeogene Noda Group of Northeast Japan are characterised by entire, wavy, or spinose pinne and have dichotomy forked open veins with occasional anastomoses. TheExpand
Draft Genome Sequence of the Basidiomycetous Yeast-Like Fungus Pseudozyma hubeiensis SY62, Which Produces an Abundant Amount of the Biosurfactant Mannosylerythritol Lipids
TLDR
To reveal the synthetic pathway of the MELs of strain SY62, the 18.44-Mb draft genome sequence is presented and it is shown that the glycolipid biosurfactant mannosylerythritol lipids are a major component of monoacetylated MEL (MEL-C). Expand
Efficient production of sophorolipids by Starmerella bombicola using a corncob hydrolysate medium.
TLDR
Sophorolipids production was investigated using a corncob hydrolysate (CCH) medium derived from lignocellulosic feedstocks as a source of hydrophilic carbon substrates and a cost-effective SL production of 49.2 g/l was achieved using CCH medium during batch cultivation in a jar fermentor. Expand
Deep-sea Rhodococcus sp. BS-15, Lacking the Phytopathogenic fas Genes, Produces a Novel Glucotriose Lipid Biosurfactant
TLDR
Glycolipid biosurfactant-producing bacteria were isolated from deep-sea sediment collected from the Okinawa Trough and the molecular structure was assigned as novel trisaccharide-type glycolipids biosurFactant, glucotriose lipids. Expand
