The sequence of events by which protein, RNA, and DNA emerged during early biological evolution is one of the most profound questions regarding the origin of life. The contemporary role of aminoacyl-adenylates as intermediates in both ribosomal and nonribosomal peptide synthesis suggests that they may have served as substrates for uncoded peptide synthesis(More)
The "RNA world" hypothesis makes two predictions that RNA should have been able both to catalyze RNA replication and to direct protein synthesis. The evolution RNA-catalyzed protein synthesis should be critical in the transition from the RNA world to the modem biological systems. Peptide bond formation is a fundamental step in modem protein biosynthesis.(More)
We report a case of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVD) in order to evaluate the course of an under-recognized form of cardiomyopathy with a vast array of clinical manifestations. The patient is a 49-year-old white woman transferred from an outside hospital due to dyspnea and persistent hypoxia. She had a pertinent family(More)
The bovine papillomavirus E5 protein is a 44-amino-acid membrane-associated protein that forms a stable complex with the endogenous platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) beta receptor in rodent and bovine fibroblasts, resulting in sustained receptor activation and cell transformation. We report here that high-level expression of the E5 protein caused a(More)
The detailed syntheses of the sulfhydryl-modified guanosine monophosphates 5'-deoxy-5'-thioguanosine-5'-monophosphorothioate (GSMP), O-[omega-sulfhydryl-tetra(ethylene glycol)]-O-(5'-guanosine) monophosphate (5'-HS-PEG4-GMP), and O-[omega-sulfhydryl-di(ethylene glycol)]-O-(5'-guanosine) monophosphate (5'-HS-PEG2-GMP) are reported. Transcription reactions(More)
BACKGROUND Donors with hepatitis C (HCV) viremia are rarely used for orthotopic heart transplantation (HT) owing to post-transplantation risks. New highly effective HCV antivirals may alter the landscape. METHODS An adult patient unsuitable for bridging mechanical support therapy accepted a heart transplant offer from a donor with HCV viremia. On daily(More)
To initiate DNA synthesis, the NS1 protein of minute virus of mice (MVM) first binds to a simple cognate recognition sequence in the viral origins, comprising two to three tandem copies of the tetranucleotide TGGT. However, this motif is also widely dispersed throughout the viral genome. Using an immunoselection procedure, we show that NS1 specifically(More)
