Complete nucleotide sequence of a human c-onc gene: deduced amino acid sequence of the human c-fos protein.
The complete nucleotide sequence of the c-fos(human) gene, the human cellular homolog of the oncogene (v-fos) of Finkel-Biskis-Jinkins murine osteosarcoma virus, has been determined. The c-fos(human)Expand

Eukaryotic-like protein kinases in the prokaryotes and the myxobacterial kinome
Ser/Thr/Tyr kinases, which together comprise a major class of regulatory proteins in eukaryotes, were not believed to play an important role in prokaryotes until recently. However, our analysis ofExpand

De novo peptide sequencing by tandem MS using complementary CID and electron transfer dissociation
De novo sequencing of peptides using tandem MS is difficult due to missing fragment ions in the spectra commonly obtained after CID of peptide precursor ions. Complementing CID spectra with spectraExpand

In vitro reconstitution of the myxochelin biosynthetic machinery of Stigmatella aurantiaca Sg a15: Biochemical characterization of a reductive release mechanism from nonribosomal peptide synthetases
Microorganisms produce iron-chelating compounds to sequester the iron essential for growth from the environment. Many of these compounds are biosynthesized by nonribosomal peptide synthetases, someExpand

Alternative Shaker transcripts express either rapidly inactivating or noninactivating K+ channels.
Two members of the Shaker K+ channel family designated ShA2 and ShD2 were characterized in the Xenopus oocyte expression system. The predicted amino acid sequences of ShA2 and ShD2 differ only in theExpand

Complete nucleotide sequences and comparison of the structural genes of two 2-haloalkanoic acid dehalogenases from Pseudomonas sp. strain CBS3.
The nucleotide sequences of two DNA segments from Pseudomonas sp. strain CBS3 that code for two different haloalkanoic acid halidohydrolases were determined. Two open reading frames with codingExpand

3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (CoA) synthase is involved in biosynthesis of isovaleryl-CoA in the myxobacterium Myxococcus xanthus during fruiting body formation.
Isovaleryl-coenzyme A (IV-CoA) is the starting unit for some secondary metabolites and iso-odd fatty acids in several bacteria. According to textbook biochemistry, IV-CoA is derived from leucineExpand
