The molecular mechanisms underlying the initiation and control of the release of cytochrome c during mitochondrion-dependent apoptosis are thought to involve the phosphorylation of mitochondrial Bcl-2 and Bcl-x(L). Although the c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) has been proposed to mediate the phosphorylation of Bcl-2/Bcl-x(L) the mechanisms linking the(More)
Heat shock in Drosophila results in repression of most normal (non-heat shock) mRNA translation and the preferential translation of the heat shock mRNAs. The sequence elements that confer preferential translation have been localized to the 5'-untranslated region (5'-UTR) for Hsp22 and Hsp70 mRNAs (in Drosophila). Hsp90 mRNA is unique among the heat shock(More)
