The essential yeast protein Cdc13 facilitates chromosome end replication by recruiting telomerase to telomeres, and together with its interacting partners Stn1 and Ten1, it protects chromosome ends from nucleolytic attack, thus contributing to genome integrity. Although Cdc13 has been studied extensively, the precise role of its N-terminal domain (Cdc13N)(More)
This study investigated a hypothesized correlation between contradictory responses from parental figures perceived in present-day interactions by adult subjects and the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder (BPD). One hundred subjects were given a questionnaire designed to assess the frequency of perceived parental response patterns divided into(More)
Dormin (abscisin II), inhibits growth of Lemna minor cultures. At 1 part per million (3.8x10(-6)M), the culture appears nearly completely dormant but can be revived readily by transferring it to fresh medium free of dormin. The cytokinin benzyladenine, but not auxin or gibberellin, will counteract the dormin effect. Quantitative restoration of normal growth(More)
Cdc13 is an essential yeast protein required for telomere length regulation and genome stability. It does so via its telomere-capping properties and by regulating telomerase access to the telomeres. The crystal structure of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Cdc13 domain located between the recruitment and DNA binding domains reveals an(More)
Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein reverse transcriptase that replicates the ends of chromosomes, thus maintaining genome stability. Telomerase ribonucleoprotein assembly is primarily mediated by the RNA binding domain (TRBD) of the enzyme. Here we present the high-resolution TRBD structure of the vertebrate, Takifugu rubripes (trTRBD). The structure shows(More)
Telomeres and their associated proteins are specialized structures at the ends of linear chromosomes that function as caps that protect the DNA from exonuclease degradation and recombination events that could lead to genomic instability. In this review, we discuss recent publications describing the high-resolution structures of individual domains and of the(More)
