Two new graph characteristics, the total vertex irregularity strength and the total edge irregularity strength, are introduced. Estimations on these parameters are obtained. For some families of graphs the precise values of these parameters are proved.
XIAP is a mammalian inhibitor of apoptosis protein (IAP). To determine residues within the second baculoviral IAP repeat (BIR2) required for inhibition of caspase 3, we screened a library of BIR2 mutants for loss of the ability to inhibit caspase 3 toxicity in the yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Four of the mutations, not predicted to affect the structure… (More)
Suppressor of cytokine signaling-3 (SOCS-3) is one member of a family of intracellular inhibitors of signaling pathways initiated by cytokines that use, among others, the common receptor subunit gp130. The SH2 domain of SOCS-3 has been shown to be essential for this inhibitory activity, and we have used a quantitative binding analysis of SOCS-3 to synthetic… (More)
The suppressors of cytokine signaling (SOCS) family of proteins act as intracellular inhibitors of several cytokine signal transduction pathways. Their expression is induced by cytokine activation of the Janus kinase/signal transducer and activator of transcription (JAK/STAT) pathway and they act as a negative feedback loop by subsequently inhibiting the… (More)
SOCS-1 (suppressor of cytokine signaling-1) is a representative of a family of negative regulators of cytokine signaling (SOCS-1 to SOCS-7 and CIS) characterized by a highly conserved C-terminal SOCS box preceded by an SH2 domain. This study comprehensively examined the ability of several SOCS family members to negatively regulate the gp130 signaling… (More)
SOCS-1 was originally identified as an inhibitor of interleukin-6 signal transduction and is a member of a family of proteins (SOCS-1 to SOCS-7 and CIS) that contain an SH2 domain and a conserved carboxyl-terminal SOCS box motif. Mutation studies have established that critical contributions from both the amino-terminal and SH2 domains are essential for… (More)
Super edge-antimagic graphs : a wealth of problems and some solutions / Martin Baca and Mirka Miller. p. cm. Preface In writing this monograph we have set out to accomplish several goals. We are aiming to present a small part of the fascinating subject of graph labeling , called antimagic. In this we have been inspired and motivated by Wal Wallis who has… (More)
