Identification of a New Acute Phase Protein (*)
TLDR
It is shown that the SIP24/24P3 protein and mRNA increase dramatically in mouse serum and liver during the acute phase response induced by turpentine injection, and it is concluded that SIP20/20P3 is a new type 1 acute phase protein.
Strong dependence between functional domains in a dual-function snoRNA infers coupling of rRNA processing and modification events
TLDR
The results suggest that the snoRNA hairpins function in a coordinated manner and that their interactions with pre-rRNA could be coupled.
Specificity of RppH-dependent RNA degradation in Bacillus subtilis
TLDR
It is reported that purified B. subtilis RppH requires at least two unpaired nucleotides at the 5′ end of its RNA substrates and prefers three or more, and a parallel pathway for 5′-end–dependent RNA degradation in that species appears to involve an alternative phosphate-removing enzyme that is relatively insensitive to sequence variation at the first three positions.
Activities of human RRP6 and structure of the human RRP6 catalytic domain.
TLDR
Structural data show that the human active site is more exposed when compared to the yeast structure, and biochemical data suggest that this feature may play a role in the ability of human RRP6 to productively engage and degrade structured RNA substrates more effectively than the analogous budding yeast enzyme.
Uterocalin: A mouse acute phase protein expressed in the uterus around birth
TLDR
It is shown that SIP24/24p3 mRNA and protein are expressed in the uterus around parturition at levels higher than are found in the liver during the acute phase response (APR).
