Expression of Aspergillus nidulans arginine catabolism genes, agaA and otaA, is regulated at the level of transcription by a specific induction and two global carbon and nitrogen repression systems. Post-transcriptional and/or post-translational mechanisms have also been proposed to operate additionally. Gene tagging with transposon impala allowed us to(More)
In vertebrates, numerous processes occur in a rhythmic manner. The hormonal signal reliably reflecting the environmental light conditions is melatonin. Nocturnal melatonin secretion patterns could be disturbed in pathophysiological states, including inflammation, Alzheimer's disease, and depression. All of these states share common elements in their(More)
Pig erythrocyte membrane Mg2+-ATPase activity was stimulated by various glutathione S-conjugates. For alkyl S-conjugates, the Km for the stimulation was lower, the more hydrophobic was the conjugate. 2,4-Dinitrophenyl-S-(N-acetyl)cysteine also stimulated the Mg2+-ATPase activity, suggesting a low specificity of the ¿glutathione S-conjugate pump¿. The Km(More)
Differential regulation of transcript stability is an effective means by which an organism can modulate gene expression. A well-characterized example is glutamine signalled degradation of specific transcripts in Aspergillus nidulans. In the case of areA, which encodes a wide-domain transcription factor mediating nitrogen metabolite repression, the signal is(More)
The study was designed to determine the effect of proinflammatory cytokine, interleukin- (IL-) 1β, on melatonin release and expression enzymes essential for this hormone synthesis: arylalkylamine-N-acetyltransferase (AA-NAT) and hydroxyindole-O-methyltransferase (HIOMT) in ovine pineal gland, taking into account the immune status of animals before(More)
