Glycosphingolipid metabolism relies on selective recruitment of the pleckstrin homology (PH) domains of FAPP proteins to the trans-Golgi network. The mechanism involved is unclear but requires recognition of phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate (PI4P) within the Golgi membrane. We investigated the molecular basis of FAPP1-PH domain interactions with PI4P(More)
We report the (1)H, (13)C and (15)N backbone and side chain chemical shift assignments and secondary structure of the Escherichia coli protein BamE, a subunit of the BAM (Omp85) complex, the β-barrel assembly machinery present in all Gram-negative bacteria, mitochondria and chloroplasts and is essential for viability.
We report the (1)H, (13)C and (15)N backbone chemical shift assignments and secondary structure of the Escherichia coli protein BamC, a 32-kDa protein subunit that forms part of the BAM (Omp85) complex, the beta-barrel assembly machinery present in all Gram-negative bacteria and which is essential for viability.
Insertion of folded proteins into the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria is mediated by the essential β-barrel assembly machine (Bam). Here, we report the native structure and mechanism of a core component of this complex, BamE, and show that it is exclusively monomeric in its native environment of the periplasm, but is able to adopt a distinct(More)
Syntenin-1 is a PDZ domain-containing adaptor that controls trafficking of transmembrane proteins including those associated with tetraspanin-enriched microdomains. We describe the interaction of syntenin-1 with ubiquitin through a novel binding site spanning the C terminus of ubiquitin, centered on Arg(72), Leu(73), and Arg(74). A conserved LYPSL sequence(More)
As new pathogenic strains are emerging and threatening aquaculture development, myxosporeans (Myxozoa) are receiving much attention in recent years. Myxosporean taxonomy is traditionally based on morphology of the myxospore stage. Molecular data on Indian myxosporeans are rare. In this report, the 18S rRNA gene sequence of Myxobolus cuttacki infecting gill(More)
Sorting nexin 3 (SNX3) belongs to a sub-family of sorting nexins that primarily contain a single Phox homology domain capable of binding phosphoinositides and membranes. We report the complete (1)H, (13)C and (15)N resonance assignments of the full-length human SNX3 protein and identification of its secondary structure elements, revealing a canonical fold(More)
