BACKGROUND The myelin sheath is a multilamellar membrane structure wrapped around the axon, enabling the saltatory conduction of nerve impulses in vertebrates. Myelin basic protein, one of the most abundant myelin-specific proteins, is an intrinsically disordered protein that has been shown to bind calmodulin. In this study, we focus on a 19-mer synthetic(More)

Investigating proteins 'at work' in a living environment at atomic resolution is a major goal of molecular biology, which has not been achieved even though methods for the three-dimensional (3D) structure determination of purified proteins in single crystals or in solution are widely used. Recent developments in NMR hardware and methodology have enabled the(More)
We evaluated the evolutionary conservation of glycine myristoylation within eukaryotic sequences. Our large-scale cross-genome analyses, available as MYRbase, show that the functional spectrum of myristoylated proteins is currently largely underestimated. We give experimental evidence for in vitro myristoylation of selected predictions. Furthermore, we(More)
Cdk5 is a member of the cyclin-dependent kinases (Cdks), activated by the neuron-specific activator p39 or p35. The activators also determine the cytoplasmic distribution of active Cdk5, but the mechanism is not yet known. In particular, little is known for p39. p39 and p35 contain localization motifs, such as a second Gly for myristoylation and Lys(More)
Pneumothorax is usually diagnosed based on the attenuation of respiratory sounds of the affected side on auscultation, but it requires a skilled technique and is limited to subjective evaluation. Thus, we designed a device which analyzes and converts the frequency of auscultatory sounds to numerical values with a computer. With this device, the bilateral(More)
Cell manufacturing is widely introduced to cope with the dynamically changing market demands. This study considers a scheduling method for a cell assembly system for the products that are characterized by the type and specification. A major set up is required at a cell for the change of types and a minor one for the change of specification within the same(More)
Although both tRNA(Lys) and tRNA(Glu) of E. coli possess similar anticodon loop sequences, with the same hypermodified nucleoside 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine (mnm5s2U) at the first position of their anticodons, the anticodon loop structures of these two tRNAs containing the modified nucleoside appear to be quite different as judged from the following(More)
