Nitrosative stress induces a novel intra-S checkpoint pathway in Schizosaccharomyces pombe involving phosphorylation of Cdc2 by Wee1.
TLDR
A novel intra-S-phase checkpoint that is activated in S. pombe under nitrosative stress is discovered and it is found that Wee1 phosphorylates Cdc2 Tyr15 which leads to replication slowdown in the fission yeast under nitosative stress. Expand
Nitric oxide sensing by chlorophyll a.
TLDR
A simple but straightforward way for sensing different NO species using chlorophyll, the source of inspiration being hemoglobin that serves as NO sink in mammalian systems is proposed and the proposed sensing module can be used in microscopic inspection of NO species. Expand
Transcription factors Atf1 and Sty1 promote stress tolerance under nitrosative stress in Schizosaccharomyces pombe.
TLDR
Experimental data obtained in this study reveals a novel role of Atf1 in initiating the replication slowdown in S. pombe under nitrosative stress in a concentration and time dependent manner. Expand
Multimodal control of transcription factor Pap1 in Schizosaccharomyces pombe under nitrosative stress.
TLDR
The flow cytometry data shows that pap1 deletion causes slower recovery from the slowdown of DNA replication under nitrosative stress, and this is the first report where it is shown that Pap1 transcription factor is localized in the nucleus under nitOSative stress. Expand
Nitric oxide sensing by chlorophyll a
TLDR
A simple but straightforward way for sensing different NO species using chlorophyll, the source of inspiration being hemoglobin that serves as a NO sink in most mamalian system and the predicted binding affinity matching with the experimental observation is revealed. Expand
