Arthropod fossil data increase congruence of morphological and molecular phylogenies.
The relationships of major arthropod clades have long been contentious, but refinements in molecular phylogenetics underpin an emerging consensus. Nevertheless, molecular phylogenies have recoveredExpand

The SOS response: recent insights into umuDC-dependent mutagenesis and DNA damage tolerance.
Be they prokaryotic or eukaryotic, organisms are exposed to a multitude of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) damaging agents ranging from ultraviolet (UV) light to fungal metabolites, like Aflatoxin B1.Expand

Escherichia coli DnaA Protein
Initiation of DNA replication at theEscherichia coli chromosomal origin occurs through an ordered series of events that depends first on the binding of DnaA protein, the replication initiator, toExpand

A Silurian armoured aplacophoran and implications for molluscan phylogeny
The Mollusca is one of the most diverse, important and well-studied invertebrate phyla; however, relationships among major molluscan taxa have long been a subject of controversy. In particular, theExpand

The Escherichia coli SOS mutagenesis proteins UmuD and UmuD' interact physically with the replicative DNA polymerase.
The Escherichia coli umuDC operon is induced in response to replication-blocking DNA lesions as part of the SOS response. UmuD protein then undergoes an RecA-facilitated self-cleavage reaction thatExpand

Parkin Stabilizes Microtubules through Strong Binding Mediated by Three Independent Domains*
Mutations of parkin, a protein-ubiquitin isopeptide ligase (E3), appear to be the most frequent cause of familial Parkinson's disease (PD). Our previous studies have demonstrated that parkin bindsExpand

Posttranslational modification of the umuD-encoded subunit of Escherichia coli DNA polymerase V regulates its interactions with the β processivity clamp
The Escherichia coli umuDC (pol V) gene products participate in both a DNA damage checkpoint control and translesion DNA synthesis. Interactions of the two umuD gene products, the 139-aa UmuD and theExpand

A new probable stem lineage crustacean with three-dimensionally preserved soft parts from the Herefordshire (Silurian) Lagerstätte, UK
A new arthropod with three-dimensionally preserved soft parts, Tanazios dokeron, is described from the Wenlock Series (Silurian) of Herefordshire, England, UK. Serial grinding, digital photographicExpand
