Frataxin Directly Stimulates Mitochondrial Cysteine Desulfurase by Exposing Substrate-binding Sites, and a Mutant Fe-S Cluster Scaffold Protein with Frataxin-bypassing Ability Acts Similarly*♦
Background: The cysteine desulfurase Nfs1 provides sulfur for Fe-S cluster biogenesis in mitochondria. Results: Frataxin or a mutant Fe-S scaffold protein (Isu1Sup) with frataxin-bypassing abilityExpand

Endogenous Muscle Atrophy F-Box Mediates Pressure Overload–Induced Cardiac Hypertrophy Through Regulation of Nuclear Factor-&kgr;B
Rationale: Overexpression of muscle atrophy F-box (MAFbx/atrogin-1), an E3 ubiquitin ligase, induces proteasomal degradation in cardiomyocytes. The role of endogenous MAFbx in regulating cardiacExpand

Rim2, a pyrimidine nucleotide exchanger, is needed for iron utilization in mitochondria.
Mitochondria transport and utilize iron for the synthesis of haem and Fe-S clusters. Although many proteins are known to be involved in these processes, additional proteins are likely to participate.Expand

Histone H2A.z Is Essential for Cardiac Myocyte Hypertrophy but Opposed by Silent Information Regulator 2α*
In this study we have shown that the histone variant H2A.z is up-regulated during cardiac hypertrophy. Upon its knock-down with RNA interference, hypertrophy and the underlying increase inExpand

Characterization of a Novel Cardiac Isoform of the Cell Cycle-related Kinase That Is Regulated during Heart Failure*
Myocardial infarction (MI) is often followed by heart failure (HF), but the mechanisms precipitating the transition to HF remain largely unknown. A genomic profile was performed in a monkey model ofExpand

Further characterization of factor VIII-deficient mice created by gene targeting: RNA and protein studies.
Previously we created two strains of factor VIII-deficient mice by insertion of a neo gene into (1) the 3' end of exon 16 and (2) exon 17 of the factor VIII gene. Affected mice of both strains haveExpand

Fe-S Cluster Biogenesis in Isolated Mammalian Mitochondria
Background: Fe-S cluster assembly in mitochondria involves generation of an activated form of sulfur called persulfide. Results: A novel experimental system tracks new Fe-S cluster synthesis inExpand

Mitochondrial NADH Kinase, Pos5p, Is Required for Efficient Iron-Sulfur Cluster Biogenesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae*
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the mitochondrial inner membrane readily allows transport of cytosolic NAD+, but not NADPH, to the matrix. Pos5p is the only known NADH kinase in the mitochondrialExpand

In vitro characterization of a novel Isu homologue from Drosophila melanogaster for de novo FeS-cluster formation.
FeS-clusters are utilized by numerous proteins within several biological pathways that are essential for life. In eukaryotes, the primary FeS-cluster production pathway is the mitochondrialExpand

Mutation in the Fe-S scaffold protein Isu bypasses frataxin deletion.
Frataxin is a conserved mitochondrial protein deficient in patients with Friedreich's ataxia. Frataxin has been implicated in control of iron homoeostasis and Fe-S cluster assembly. In yeast or humanExpand
