Phytochromes are a family of related chromoproteins that regulate photomorphogenesis in plants. Ectopic overexpression of the phytochrome A in several plant species has pleiotropic effects, including substantial dwarfing, increased pigmentation, and delayed leaf senescence. We show here that the dwarf response is related to a reduction in active(More)
Conjugation of multiple ubiquitins serves as a committed step in the degradation of a variety of intracellular eukaryotic proteins by the 26S proteasome. Conjugates are formed via a three-enzyme cascade; the initial step requires ubiquitin-activating enzyme (E1), which couples ubiquitin activation to ATP hydrolysis. Previously, we showed that many higher(More)
The crystal structure of human ubiquitin has been solved by x-ray diffraction methods and refined by standard procedures to a conventional crystallographic R factor of 0.176 at 1.8-A resolution (Vijay-Kumar, S., Bugg, C.E., and Cook, W.J. (1987) J. Mol. Biol. 194, 525-538). Crystals of yeast and oat ubiquitin have been grown using human ubiquitin crystals(More)
program of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) aims to speed the process of transforming new discoveries into improvements in human health. Critical to achieving this outcome of improving human health is the engagement of community, broadly defi ned, across the research spectrum. Moreover, including community members who do not(More)
OBJECTIVE For children aged 1-5 years, the authors used the Delphi method to determine (1) the most important injury hazards in each area of the home; (2) the most important injury prevention behaviors; and (3) feasible and efficacious safety devices and behaviors to reduce injury risks. DESIGN The authors used a modified Delphi method to prioritize home(More)
