The cellular response to ionizing radiation (IR) involves a variety of mechanisms to repair damage and maintain cell survival. We previously reported that the proteasome activator PA200 promotes long-term cell survival after IR exposure. The molecular function of PA200 is to enhance proteasome-mediated cleavage after glutamate; however, it is not known how(More)
Assembly of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules with peptide in the endoplasmic reticulum requires the assistance of tapasin. Alternative splicing, which is known to regulate many genes, has been reported for tapasin only in the context of mutations. Here, we report on an alternate splice form of tapasin (tpsnΔEx3) derived from a human(More)
Sex differences are prominent in mood and anxiety disorders and may provide a window into mechanisms of onset and maintenance of affective disturbances in both men and women. With the plethora of sex differences in brain structure, function, and stress responsivity, as well as differences in exposure to reproductive hormones, social expectations and(More)
