hPFTAIRE1 is a Cdc2-related kinase family member. To search its substrates and regulatory proteins, hPFTAIRE1 was fused to LexA and used as a bait to screen a human brain LexA two-hybrid library. In this screening, seven hPFTAIRE1 interacting proteins, including promyelocytic leukemia zinc finger (PLZF), were obtained. The interaction between PLZF and(More)
Plant viruses encode suppressors of post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS), an adaptive defense response that limits virus replication and its spread in plants. The helper component proteinase (HC-Pro) of the potato virus A (PVA, genus Potyvirus) suppresses PTGS of silenced transgenes. Here, the effect of HC-Pro on siRNA-directed interference in the(More)
Molecular mechanisms of morphogenesis share many common components between Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The Kss1-associated MAPK cascade and the cAMP/PKA pathway are two important signal transduction pathways that control morphogenesis in S. cerevisiae. A C. albicans copper ion-sensing transcription factor gene, CaMAC1, was cloned from C.(More)
hPFTAIRE1 is a member of Cdc2-related kinase family localized in cytoplasm. To search its substrates and regulatory proteins, the hPFTAIRE1 was fused to LexA and used as bait to screen a human brain LexA two-hybrid library. In this screening, 7 hPFTAIRE1 interacting proteins, including KIAA0202, were obtained. The interaction between the KIAA0202 and the(More)
RNA interference (RNAi) silences gene expression by guiding mRNA degradation in a sequence-specific fashion. Small interfering RNA (siRNA), an intermediate of the RNAi pathway, has been shown to be very effective in inhibiting virus infection in mammalian cells and cultured plant cells. Here, we report that Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transient(More)
The pathogenic fungus Candida albicans has a dimorphic transition in various environmental conditions. Many regulatory factors and several transduction pathways have been identified in controlling filamentous growth. G(1) cyclins Cln1 and Cln2 have been reported as involved in the control of morphogenesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Diploid cln1/cln1 and(More)
Ribonuclease inhibitor (RI) is an acidic 50 kD protein with a high content of leucine and cysteine residues. RI inhibits RNases of the pancreatic type. A variant of RI was cloned from human fetal liver cDNA library by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Compared with the reported RI, only two variations Arg(359)Ala and Leu(365)Pro were found in RIv amino acid(More)
