Available data suggest that unusual organelles called hydrogenosomes, that make ATP and hydrogen, and which are found in diverse anaerobic eukaryotes, were once mitochondria. The evolutionary origins of the enzymes used to make hydrogen, pyruvate:ferredoxin oxidoreductase (PFO) and hydrogenase, are unresolved, but it seems likely that both were present at(More)
NF-(kappa)B is an inducible transcription factor that activates many cellular genes involved in stress and immune response and whose DNA binding activity and cellular distribution are regulated by I(kappa)B inhibitor proteins. The interaction between NF-(kappa)B p50 and DNA was investigated by protein footprinting using chemical modification and partial(More)
Saccharomyces cerevisiae is by far the best-studied unicellular eukaryote. Although yeast cells are very similar to higher eukaryotes in many respects, there is striking evidence that S. cerevisiae is not a perfect model for a eukaryotic cell (cf. 1). Here we report that yeast proteins contain a significantly lower amount of cysteine residues compared to(More)
