The molecular background of Hg (2+)-induced inhibition of protochlorophyllide (Pchlide) photoreduction was investigated in homogenates of dark-grown wheat leaves. Our earlier work showed that 15 min incubation with 10 (-2) M Hg (2+) completely inhibits the activity of NADPH : Pchlide oxidoreductase ( ). Detailed analysis of spectra recorded at 10 K(More)
MOTIVATION Signaling pathways control a large variety of cellular processes. However, currently, even within the same database signaling pathways are often curated at different levels of detail. This makes comparative and cross-talk analyses difficult. RESULTS We present SignaLink, a database containing eight major signaling pathways from Caenorhabditis(More)
Signaling networks in eukaryotes are made up of upstream and downstream subnetworks. The upstream subnetwork contains the intertwined network of signaling pathways, while the downstream regulatory part contains transcription factors and their binding sites on the DNA as well as microRNAs and their mRNA targets. Currently, most signaling and regulatory(More)
Cancer is increasingly perceived as a systems-level, network phenomenon. The major trend of malignant transformation can be described as a two-phase process, where an initial increase of network plasticity is followed by a decrease of plasticity at late stages of tumor development. The fluctuating intensity of stress factors, like hypoxia, inflammation and(More)
NRF2 is the master transcriptional regulator of oxidative and xenobiotic stress responses. NRF2 has important roles in carcinogenesis, inflammation, and neurodegenerative diseases. We developed an online resource, NRF2-ome, to provide an integrated and systems-level database for NRF2. The database contains manually curated and predicted interactions of NRF2(More)
NRF2 is a well-known, master transcription factor (TF) of oxidative and xenobiotic stress responses. Recent studies uncovered an even wider regulatory role of NRF2 influencing carcinogenesis, inflammation and neurodegeneration. Prompted by these advances here we present a systems-level resource for NRF2 interactome and regulome that includes 289(More)
BACKGROUND Uncovering novel components of signal transduction pathways and their interactions within species is a central task in current biological research. Orthology alignment and functional genomics approaches allow the effective identification of signaling proteins by cross-species data integration. Recently, functional annotation of orthologs was(More)
The effect of some more or less harmful compounds like Cd, Pb, Ni, Ti salts and DCMU at low concentrations on the development of chloroplasts in maize and bean seedlings was investigated. Chlorophyll content, chlorophyll a/b ratio, photosynthetic activity (14CO2 fixation), chlorophyll-protein composition of thylakoid membranes, fluorescence spectra of(More)
The effect of Hg++ was studied on the arrangement and photoactivity of NADPH:protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase (POR) in homogenates of dark-grown wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) leaves. 77 K fluorescence emission spectra of the homogenates were recorded before and after the irradiation of the homogenates and the spectra were deconvoluted into Gaussian(More)
Autophagy is a complex cellular process having multiple roles, depending on tissue, physiological, or pathological conditions. Major post-translational regulators of autophagy are well known, however, they have not yet been collected comprehensively. The precise and context-dependent regulation of autophagy necessitates additional regulators, including(More)
