The Lec35 mutation (previously designated PIR) of Chinese hamster ovary cells is a recessive mutation that affects the participation of mannose-P-dolichol (MPD) in dolichol-P-P-oligosaccharide biosynthesis in vivo, even though MPD and the respective MPD-dependent mannosyltransferases are present. The Lec35 phenotype can be partially corrected by disrupting(More)
The tumor-suppressive activity of FOXP3 has been observed in tumor initiation, but the underlying mechanism still remains largely unknown. Here, we identified a FOXP3-microRNA-146 (miR-146)-NF-κB axis in vitro and in vivo in prostate cancer cells. We observed that FOXP3 dramatically induced the expression of miR-146a/b, which contributed to transcriptional(More)
Cataract, a leading cause of blindness, occurs due to aggregation of crystallin proteins in eye lens. In this paper, the aggregation site in three major γ-crystallins of human eye lens has been identified unambiguously by using their primary sequences with the help of PASTA, Tango and AGGRESCAN. We have found that some hydrophobic residues in C-terminal(More)
Protein aggregation, due to the imbalance in the concentration of Cu2+ and Zn2+ ions is found to be allied with various physiological disorders. Copper is known to promote the oxidative damage of β/γ-crystallins in aged eye lens and causes their aggregation leading to cataract. Therefore, synthesis of a small-molecule ‘chelator’ for Cu2+ with complementary(More)
