6-Phosphofructo-2-kinase/fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase-3 (PFKFB3) is a master regulator of glycolysis by its ability to synthesize fructose-2,6-bisphosphate, a potent allosteric activator of 6-phosphofructo-1-kinase. Being a substrate of the E3 ubiquitin ligase anaphase-promoting complex-Cdh1 (APC(Cdh1)), PFKFB3 is targeted to proteasomal degradation in(More)
Recent advances in the field of brain energy metabolism strongly suggest that glutamate receptor-mediated neurotransmission is coupled with molecular signals that switch-on glucose utilization pathways to meet the high energetic requirements of neurons. Failure to adequately coordinate energy supply for neurotransmission ultimately results in a positive(More)
Sixteen nuclear microsatellite markers (SSR) were developed for Viola cheiranthifolia Humb. & Bonpl. (Violaceae), endemic to Tenerife Island (Canary Islands), and tested on the closely related Viola palmensis Web & Berthel., endemic to La Palma Island. All loci showed polymorphism and fifteen of them could be transferred to V. palmensis. They had an average(More)
