Design of phosphodiesterase 4D (PDE4D) allosteric modulators for enhancing cognition with improved safety
Phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4), the primary cAMP-hydrolyzing enzyme in cells, is a promising drug target for a wide range of conditions. Here we present seven co-crystal structures of PDE4 and bound… Expand
Identification and characterization of the human cytomegalovirus immediate-early region 2 gene that stimulates gene expression from an inducible promoter.
The human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) XbaI E cloned DNA fragment of approximately 20 kilobases can complement an adenovirus mutant (dl312) defective in the E1a viral gene product (D. J. Spector and M. J.… Expand
Multiple spliced and unspliced transcripts from human cytomegalovirus immediate-early region 2 and evidence for a common initiation site within immediate-early region 1.
Human cytomegalovirus immediate-early (IE) region 2 (0.732 to 0.740 map unit) begins 35 nucleotides downstream of IE region 1 (Stenberg et al., J. Virol. 49:190-199, 1984). A series of mRNAs that… Expand

ABSTRACT LpxC [UDP-3-O-(R-3-hydroxymyristoyl)-GlcNAc deacetylase] is a metalloamidase that catalyzes the first committed step in the biosynthesis of the lipid A component of lipopolysaccharide. A… Expand
Alternate promoter selection within a human cytomegalovirus immediate-early and early transcription unit (UL119-115) defines true late transcripts containing open reading frames for putative viral…
The human cytomegalovirus open reading frames (ORFs) UL119 through UL115 (UL119-115) are located downstream of the immediate-early 1 and 2 transcription units. The promoter upstream of UL119 is… Expand
Antimicrobial effects of novel siderophores linked to beta-lactam antibiotics.
As a strategy to increase the penetration of antibiotic drugs through the outer membrane of gram-negative pathogens, facilitated transport through siderophore receptors has been frequently exploited.… Expand

Structure and function of a cyanophage-encoded peptide deformylase
Bacteriophages encode auxiliary metabolic genes that support more efficient phage replication. For example, cyanophages carry several genes to maintain host photosynthesis throughout infection,… Expand
