Amastigotes (tissue forms) of Leishmania donovani isolated from infected hamster spleens carried out several physiological activities (respiration, catabolism of energy substrates, and incorporation of precursors into macromolecules) optimally at pH 4.0 to 5.5. All metabolic activities that were examined decreased sharply above the optimal pH. Promastigotes(More)
We report the nucleotide and derived amino acid sequence of the ATPase 1 gene from Plasmodium falciparum. The amino acid sequence shares homology with the family of "P"-type cation translocating ATPases in conserved regions important for nucleotide binding, conformational change, or phosphorylation. The gene, which is present on chromosome 5, has a product(More)
Recent studies of the gene regulation of the cytochrome P450 steroid hydroxylases have established a key role for an orphan nuclear receptor, designated steroidogenic factor 1 (SF-1). SF-1 binds to shared promoter elements upstream of the steroid hydroxylases to mediate their coordinate expression in steroidogenic cells. Analyses of SF-1 expression during(More)
As a critical component in the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway, AKT has become an attractive target for therapeutic intervention. ARQ 092 and a next generation AKT inhibitor, ARQ 751 are selective, allosteric, pan-AKT and AKT1-E17K mutant inhibitors that potently inhibit phosphorylation of AKT. Biochemical and cellular analysis showed that ARQ 092 and ARQ 751(More)
Two mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae have been isolated from normal haploid MAT alpha strains and characterized as having temperature-sensitive, pleiotropic phenotypes for functions associated with mating. At the permissive temperature, 23 degrees C, they were found to behave as normal MAT alpha haploids with respect to mating efficiency, sporulation in(More)
