Entry into mitosis in Schizosaccharomyces pombe is negatively regulated by the wee1+ gene, which encodes a protein kinase with serine-, theonine-, and tyrosine-phosphorylating activities. The wee1+ kinase negatively regulates mitosis by phosphorylating p34cdc2 on tyrosine 15, thereby inactivating the p34cdc2-cyclin B complex. The human homolog of the wee1+(More)
Escherichia coli K12 is being used to study the potential for adaptive evolution that is present in the genome of a single organism. Wild-type E. coli K12 do not utilize any of the beta-glucoside sugars arbutin, salicin or cellobiose. It has been shown that mutations at three cryptic loci allow utilization of these sugars. Mutations in the bgl operon allow(More)
Multiple PDZ domain protein 1 (MUPP1), a putative scaffolding protein containing 13 PSD-95, Dlg, ZO-1 (PDZ) domains, was identified by a yeast two-hybrid screen as a serotonin2C receptor (5-HT2C R)-interacting protein (Ullmer, C., Schmuck, K., Figge, A., and Lubbert, H. (1998) FEBS Lett. 424, 63-68). MUPP1 PDZ domain 10 (PDZ 10) associates with(More)
In the Drosophila visual cascade, the transient receptor potential (TRP) calcium channel, phospholipase Cbeta (no-receptor-potential A), and an eye-specific isoform of protein kinase C (eye-PKC) comprise a multimolecular signaling complex via their interaction with the scaffold protein INAD. Previously, we showed that the interaction between INAD and(More)
The G2-M phase transition in eukaryotes is regulated by the synergistic and opposing activities of a cascade of distinct protein kinases and phosphatases. This cascade converges on Cdc2, a serine/threonine protein kinase required for entry into mitosis (reviewed in ref. 1). In the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, inactivation of the Cdc2/cyclin B(More)
The cel (cellobiose utilization) operon of Escherichia coli K12 is not expressed in the wild-type organism. However, mutants that can express the operon and thereby utilize the beta-glucoside sugars cellobiose, arbutin and salicin are easily isolated. Two kinds of mutations are capable of activating the operon. The first involves mutations that allow the(More)
