A mutant derivative of Klenow fragment DNA polymerase containing serine substituted for tyrosine at residue 766 has been shown by kinetic analysis to have an increased misinsertion rate relative to wild-type Klenow fragment, but a decreased rate of extension from the resulting mispairs (Carroll, S. S., Cowart, M., and Benkovic, S. J. (1991) Biochemistry 30,(More)
We have identified an amino-proximal sequence motif, Phe-Asp-Ile-Glu-Thr, in Saccharomyces cerevisiae DNA polymerase II that is almost identical to a sequence comprising part of the 3'----5' exonuclease active site of Escherichia coli DNA polymerase I. Similar motifs were identified by amino acid sequence alignment in related, aphidicolin-sensitive DNA(More)
We have determined the complete 3581 bp sequence of the mitochondrial plasmid from Neurospora crassa strain Mauriceville-1c. The plasmid contains a long open reading frame that is expressed in its major transcript and could encode a hydrophilic protein of 710 amino acids. Two characteristics of the plasmid--codon usage and the presence of conserved sequence(More)
Mixtures of zona fasciculata (ZF) and zona reticularis (ZR) cells, obtained by enzyme dispersion of decapsulated guinea-pig adrenal glands, were separated either by unit gravity sedimentation or by equilibrium density sedimentation. There was no evidence of deleterious effects on ultrastructural integrity or the ability of cells to respond to (1-24)ACTH(More)
The effects of pure [Asp1,Val5]- and [Asn1,Val5]-angiotensin II and also [des-Asp1,Ile5]-angiotensin II (angiotensin III) on cyclic AMP and steroid outputs by dispersed rat capsular cells, comprising 95% zona glomerulosa and 5% zona fasciculata cells, have been studied. The results showed that [Asp1, Val5]-and [Asn1, VAl5]-angiotensin II, at doses between(More)
The effects of various concentrations of serotonin, ACTH, K+, angiotensin II (AII), angiotensin III (AIII) and [Sar1]angiotensin II (SAII) on steroidogenesis and the incorporation of 32P (after preincubation to near equilibrium with the ATP pool) into phosphatidylinositol (PI), phosphatidic acid (PA) and phosphatidylcholine (PC) in a preparation of capsular(More)
The mTOR pathway controls mRNA translation of mitogenic proteins and is a central regulator of metabolism in malignant cells. Development of malignant cell resistance is a limiting factor to the effects of mTOR inhibitors, but the mechanisms accounting for such resistance are not well understood. We provide evidence that mTORC1 inhibition by rapamycin(More)
Neurospora mtDNA contains a repetitive, 18 nucleotide palindromic sequence (5'-CCCTGCAGTACTGCAGGG-3') that contains two closely spaced PstI sites (CTGCAG) in the arms of the palindrome (Yin, S., Heckman, J., and RajBhandary, U. L. (1981) Cell 26, 325-332). In the present study, DNA sequence analysis was carried out to determine whether PstI palindromes are(More)
