A transcriptional analysis of the response of Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain BY4743 to controlled air-drying (desiccation) and subsequent rehydration under minimal glucose conditions was performed. Expression of genes involved in fatty acid oxidation and the glyoxylate cycle was observed to increase during drying and remained in this state during the(More)
The loss of water from cells is a stress that was likely imposed very early in evolution. An understanding of the sensitivity or tolerance of cells to depletion of intracellular water is relevant to the study of quiescence, longevity and aging, because one consequence of air-drying is full metabolic arrest, sometimes for extended periods. When considering(More)
Understanding how cells withstand a depletion of intracellular water is relevant to the study of longevity, aging, and quiescence because one consequence of air-drying is metabolic arrest. After removal of medium, HEK293 spheroids with intracellular water content of approximately 65% survived partial vacuum, with antistatic control, for weeks in the dark at(More)
Application of molecular modeling approaches has potential to contribute to rational drug design. These approaches may be especially useful when attempting to elucidate the structural features associated with novel drug targets. In this study, molecular docking and molecular dynamics were applied to studies of inhibition of the human motor protein denoted(More)
[reaction: see text] For reactions of magnesium with cyclopropyl bromide in diethyl ether, added DCPH decreases the yield of cyclopropylmagnesium bromide by as much as 75%, while solvent-derived products disappear and cyclopropylcyclohexylphosphine and tetracyclohexyldiphosphine appear. These changes reflect trapping of diffusing intermediate cyclopropyl(More)
Alkyl group isomerizations during Grignard reagent formation from magnesium metal and alkyl halides in diethyl ether occur through intermediate alkyl radicals (eq l-3).'-e Mechanistic details that are not specified here are uncertain. One question concerns the mobility of the intermediate alkyl radicals: Are they adsorbed on the magnesium surface,r'e or do(More)
