Syntrophins are scaffold proteins of the dystrophin glycoprotein complex (DGC), which target ion channels, receptors, and signaling proteins to specialized subcellular domains. A yeast two-hybrid screen of a human brain cDNA library with the PSD-95, Discs-large, ZO-1 (PDZ) domain of gamma1-syntrophin yielded overlapping clones encoding the C terminus of(More)
Syntrophins are modular adapter proteins that link ion channels and signaling proteins to dystrophin and its homologues. A yeast two-hybrid screen of a human brain cDNA library using the PDZ domain of gamma 1- syntrophin, a recently identified brain-specific isoform, yielded overlapping clones encoding the C terminus of diacylglycerol kinase-zeta(More)
PDZ domains are modular protein-protein interaction domains that bind to specific C-terminal sequences of membrane proteins and/or to other PDZ domains. Certain PDZ domains in PSD-95 and syntrophins interact with C-terminal peptide ligands and heterodimerize with the extended nNOS PDZ domain. The capacity to interact with nNOS correlates with the presence(More)
Aspergillus fumigatus is the most common cause of invasive mold disease in humans. The mechanisms underlying the adherence of this mold to host cells and macromolecules have remained elusive. Using mutants with different adhesive properties and comparative transcriptomics, we discovered that the gene uge3, encoding a fungal epimerase, is required for(More)
UNLABELLED The mold Aspergillus fumigatus causes invasive infection in immunocompromised patients. Recently, galactosaminogalactan (GAG), an exopolysaccharide composed of galactose and N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc), was identified as a virulence factor required for biofilm formation. The molecular mechanisms underlying GAG biosynthesis and GAG-mediated(More)
Enterprises launching IT development projects usually start off with establishing Use Cases or similar techniques to document functional requirements as a special directed effort. More often than not, the resulting information system has buried these and other newly discovered undocumented requirements into program code-losing the important link between(More)
