J-proteins and Hsp70 chaperones function together in diverse cellular processes. We identified a cytosolic J-protein, Jjj1, of Saccharomyces cerevisiae that is associated with 60S ribosomal particles. Unlike Zuo1, a 60S subunit-associated J-protein that is a component of the chaperone machinery that binds nascent polypeptide chains upon their exit from the(More)
In Phalaenopsis, lowering irradiance has been used to delay flower stalk development but the accompanying biochemical changes remain poorly understood. We cultured two commercial Phalaenopsis-type orchids, Phalaenopsis cv. Sogo Yukidian V3, and Doritaneopsis cv. Walnut Valley Halo ES09 under reduced irradiance by under-bench shading (approximately 15 % of(More)
The 26S proteasome is an ATP-dependent eukaryotic protease responsible for degrading many important cell regulators, especially those conjugated with multiple ubiquitins. Bound on both ends of the 20S core protease is a multisubunit regulatory particle that plays a crucial role in substrate selection by an as yet unknown mechanism(s). Here, we show that the(More)
BACKGROUND Seeds of Momordica charantia (bitter melon) produce high levels of eleostearic acid, an unusual conjugated fatty acid with industrial value. Deep sequencing of non-normalized and normalized cDNAs from developing bitter melon seeds was conducted to uncover key genes required for biotechnological transfer of conjugated fatty acid production to(More)
Spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE) has been extended to the non-destructive, in-line monitoring of biaxial tensile strain in strained silicon (epsiv-Si). SE data from 250nm - 500nm from three epsiv-Si samples were fitted using a new parametric model for semiconductors. By using the E1 peak shift in the fitted dielectric function spectra, the tensile strain in(More)
