The SAMHD1 protein is an HIV-1 restriction factor that is targeted by the HIV-2 accessory protein Vpx in myeloid lineage cells. Mutations in the SAMHD1 gene cause Aicardi-Goutières syndrome, a genetic disease that mimics congenital viral infection. To determine the physiological function of the SAMHD1 protein, the SAMHD1 gene was cloned, recombinant protein(More)
We report here an unliganded receptor structure in the common gamma-chain (γ(c)) family of receptors and cytokines. The crystal structure of the unliganded form of the interleukin-7 alpha receptor (IL-7Rα) extracellular domain (ECD) at 2.15 Å resolution reveals a homodimer forming an "X" geometry looking down onto the cell surface with the C termini of the(More)
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) interact with a number of cytokines and growth factors thereby playing an essential role in the regulation of many physiological processes. These interactions are important for both normal signal transduction and the regulation of the tissue distribution of cytokines/growth factors. In the present study, we employed surface plasmon(More)
BACKGROUND In Escherichia coli, cytotoxic DNA methyl lesions on the N1 position of purines and N3 position of pyrimidines are primarily repaired by the 2-oxoglutarate (2-OG) iron(II) dependent dioxygenase, AlkB. AlkB repairs 1-methyladenine (1-meA) and 3-methylcytosine (3-meC) lesions, but it also repairs 1-methylguanine (1-meG) and 3-methylthymine (3-meT)(More)
Approximately half of all patients presenting to dermatologists exhibit signs and symptoms of psychiatric conditions that are either primary or secondary to cutaneous disease. Because patients typically resist psychiatric consult, dermatologists often are on the front line in evaluating and treating these patients. Accordingly, distinguishing the specific(More)
