The transcription factor Pho4 is phosphorylated and localized predominantly to the cytoplasm when budding yeast are grown in phosphate-rich medium and is unphosphorylated and localized to the nucleus upon phosphate starvation. We have investigated the requirements for nuclear import of Pho4 and find that Pho4 enters the nucleus via a nonclassical import(More)
The movement of many transcription factors, kinases and replication factors between the nucleus and cytoplasm is important in regulating their activity. In some cases, phosphorylation of a protein regulates its entry into the nucleus; in others, it causes the protein to be exported to the cytoplasm. The mechanism by which phosphorylation promotes protein(More)
Testing automated oscillometric sphygmomanometers using simulators is important to ensure good operation. Simulators, however, are unable to model certain aspects of the human hemodynamics. To identify these aspects, the technique of wavelet analysis is used to decompose a set of 5 real and 5 simulated signals. Both continuous (CWT) and discrete (DWT)(More)
The bovine papillomavirus type 1 (BPV-1) E2 translational open reading frame encodes three proteins that regulate viral transcription and DNA replication: the E2 transcriptional activator (E2TA), the E2 transcriptional repressor (E2TR) and the E8/E2 transcriptional repressor (E8/E2TR). E2TA is a strong activator of papillomaviral promoters and is required(More)
