Attempts were made to co-define afferents of the oculomotor nuclear complex (OMC) and their putative neurotransmitters in the squirrel monkey. Wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP) and wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to enzymatically inactive HRP and coupled to colloidal gold (WGAapoHRP-AU) were used as retrograde tracers in(More)
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, many osmotically inducible genes are regulated by the Sko1p-Ssn6p-Tup1p complex. On osmotic shock, the MAP kinase Hog1p associates with this complex, phosphorylates Sko1p, and converts it into an activator that subsequently recruits Swi/Snf and SAGA complexes. We have found that phospholipase C (Plc1p encoded by PLC1) is(More)
Phosphatidylinositol phosphates are involved in signal transduction, cytoskeletal organization, and membrane trafficking. Inositol polyphosphates, produced from phosphatidylinositol phosphates by the phospholipase C-dependent pathway, regulate chromatin remodeling. We used genome-wide expression analysis to further investigate the roles of Plc1p(More)
High-fidelity chromosome segregation during mitosis requires kinetochores, protein complexes that assemble on centromeric DNA and mediate chromosome attachment to spindle microtubules. In budding yeast, phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C (Plc1p encoded by PLC1 gene) is important for function of kinetochores. Deletion of PLC1 results in alterations in(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to determine how polymyxin B stimulates the activity of mitochondrial glycerophosphate acyltransferase. Polymyxin B did not change the integrity of the mitochondrial outer membrane as judged by testing the latency (>80%) of cytochrome oxidase activity. The stimulation totally disappeared when polymyxin B-treated(More)
Gene expression analysis is currently carried out using three methods that provide complementary data: microarrays, RNA-Seq, and RT-qPCR. Microarrays provide comprehensive whole-genome coverage in single experiments, with rapid data acquisition and results at a low price per sample. RNA-Seq provides the most comprehensive data across all RNA transcripts(More)
