DNaseI digestion studies (Brukner et al, EMBO J 14, 1812-1818 1995) and nucleosomebinding data (Satchwell et al, J. Mol. Biol. 191, 639-659 1986, Goodsell and Dickerson, Nucleic trinucleotides. A detailed comparison of the two models suggests that while both of them represent improvements with respect to dinucleotide based descriptions, the individual(More)
The eukaryotic cell division cycle is coordinated by cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), represented by a single major serine/threonine kinase in yeasts (Cdc2/CDC28) and a family of kinases (CDK1 to CDK8) in human cells. Previously, two cdc2 homologs, cdc2MsA and cdc2MsB, have been identified in alfalfa (Medicago sativa). By isolating cDNAs using a cdc2MsA(More)
RBP16 is a mitochondrial Y-box protein from the parasitic protozoan Trypanosoma brucei that binds guide RNAs and ribosomal RNAs. It is comprised of an N-terminal cold-shock domain and a C-terminal domain rich in glycine and arginine residues, resembling the RGG RNA-binding motif. Arginine residues found within RGG domains are frequently asymmetrically(More)
The WWW servers at http://www.icgeb.trieste.it/dna/ are dedicated to the analysis of user-submitted DNA sequences; plot.it creates parametric plots of 45 physicochemical, as well as statistical, parameters; bend.it calculates DNA curvature according to various methods. Both programs provide 1D as well as 2D plots that allow localisation of peculiar segments(More)
SBASE 7.0 is the seventh release of the SBASE protein domain library sequences that contains 237 937 annotated structural, functional, ligand-binding and topogenic segments of proteins, cross-referenced to all major sequence databases and sequence pattern collections. The entries are clustered into over 1811 groups and are provided with two WWW-based search(More)
Orthology is a key evolutionary concept in many areas of genomic research. It provides a framework for subjects as diverse as the evolution of genomes, gene functions, cellular networks and functional genome annotation. Although orthologous proteins usually perform equivalent functions in different species, establishing true orthologous relationships(More)
MOTIVATION Distance measures built on the notion of text compression have been used for the comparison and classification of entire genomes and mitochondrial genomes. The present study was undertaken in order to explore their utility in the classification of protein sequences. RESULTS We constructed compression-based distance measures (CBMs) using the(More)
Long-standing evidence indicates that human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) preferentially integrates into a subset of transcriptionally active genes of the host cell genome. However, the reason why the virus selects only certain genes among all transcriptionally active regions in a target cell remains largely unknown. Here we show that HIV-1(More)
The cytoplasmic tail of Notch ligands drives endocytosis, mediates association with proteins implicated in the organization of cell-cell junctions and, through regulated intra-membrane proteolysis, is released from the membrane as a signaling fragment. We survey these findings and discuss the role of Notch ligands intracellular region in bidirectional(More)
Protein methylation at arginine residues is a prevalent posttranslational modification in eukaryotic cells that has been implicated in processes from RNA-binding and transporting to protein sorting and transcription activation. Three main forms of methylarginine have been identified: N(G)-monomethylarginine (MMA), asymmetric N(G),N(G)-dimethylarginine(More)
