A polymorphic CAG repeat was identified in the human alpha 1A voltage-dependent calcium channel subunit. To test the hypothesis that expansion of this CAG repeat could be the cause of an inherited progressive ataxia, we genotyped a large number of unrelated controls and ataxia patients. Eight unrelated patients with late onset ataxia had alleles with larger(More)
The response of Escherichia coli central carbon metabolism to genetic and environmental manipulation has been studied by use of a recently developed methodology for metabolic flux ratio (METAFoR) analysis; this methodology can also directly reveal active metabolic pathways. Generation of fluxome data arrays by use of the METAFoR approach is based on(More)
Aerobic and anaerobic central metabolism of Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells was explored in batch cultures on a minimal medium containing glucose as the sole carbon source, using biosynthetic fractional (13)C labeling of proteinogenic amino acids. This allowed, firstly, unravelling of the network of active central pathways in cytosol and mitochondria,(More)
Caspases (cysteine-containing aspartate-specific proteases) are at the core of the cell's suicide machinery. These enzymes, once activated, dismantle the cell by selectively cleaving key proteins after aspartate residues. The events culminating in caspase activation are the subject of intense study because of their role in cancer, and neurodegenerative and(More)
The glycosylation pattern of chCE7, an antineuroblastoma chimeric IgG1, was engineered in Chinese hamster ovary cells with tetracycline-regulated expression of beta(1,4)-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase III (GnTIII), a glycosyltransferase catalyzing formation of bisected oligosaccharides that have been implicated in antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity(More)
Biosynthetically directed fractional 13C labeling of the proteinogenic amino acids is achieved by feeding a mixture of uniformly 13C-labeled and unlabeled carbon source compounds into a bioreaction network. Analysis of the resulting labeling pattern enables both a comprehensive characterization of the network topology and the determination of metabolic flux(More)
The pentose phosphate pathway and the pyruvate shunt were identified as major pathways of glucose catabolism in a recombinant, riboflavin-producing Bacillus subtilis strain. Reactions connecting the tricarboxylic acid cycle and glycolysis, catalyzed by the malic enzyme and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, consume up to 23% of the metabolized glucose.(More)
Escherichia coli produces lactate and acetate in significant amounts during both aerobic and anaerobic glycolysis. A model describing the mechanism of protein mediated lactate transport has previously bee proposed. A simple theoretical analysis here indicates that the proposed model would be drain cellular energy resources by catalytically dissipating the(More)
A mathematical model of regulation of the G1-S transition of the mammalian cell cycle has been formulated to organize available experimental molecular-level information in a systematic quantitative framework and to evaluate the ability of this manifestation of current knowledge to calculate correctly experimentally observed phenotypes. This model includes(More)
We report here the isolation, mapping, and genomic organization of the human NDUFA1 gene, which is a component of NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase (complex I). The NDUFA1 cDNA clone and associated genomic cosmid clones were isolated by reciprocal probing of an arrayed human heart cDNA library with a X-chromosome cosmid library and were mapped to Xq24. The(More)
