The Krüppel-associated box A (KRAB-A) domain is an evolutionarily conserved transcriptional repressor domain present in approximately one-third of zinc finger proteins of the Cys2-His2 type. Using the yeast two-hybrid system, we report the isolation of a cDNA encoding a novel murine protein, KRAB-A interacting protein 1 (KRIP-1) that physically interacts(More)
Bacteria have aggressive acquisition processes for iron, an essential nutrient. Siderophores are small iron chelators that facilitate cellular iron transport. The siderophore enterobactin is a triscatechol derivative of a cyclic triserine lactone. Studies of the chemistry, regulation, synthesis, recognition, and transport of enterobactin make it perhaps the(More)
A marine bacterial strain, designated FR1311T, was isolated from a sea-water sample from Ganghwa Island, South Korea. Cells were Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, catalase- and oxidase-positive, motile, oval or rod-shaped and halophilic (optimum sea-salt concentration for growth of 5-6 %). Phylogenetic analysis of its 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed(More)
MPP+ is redox active in the presence of cytochrome P450 reductase and induces the formation of O2.- and HO(.). In this study, we report the redox cycling capability of MPP+ with additional enzymes and with UV photolysis detected through ESR techniques. The treatment of MPP+ with UV light resulted in the production of HO. trapped as a spin adduct. Two of the(More)
It is generally assumed that all mature rRNA molecules assembled into ribosomes within a single cell are identical. However, sequence analysis of Streptomyces coelicolor genome revealed that it harbors six copies of divergent rRNA operons that may express and constitute three and five different kinds of small subunit (SSU) and large subunit (LSU) rRNA(More)
Most species of bacteria employ siderophores to acquire iron. The chirality of the ferric siderophore complex plays an important role in cell recognition, uptake, and utilization. Corynebactin, isolated from Gram-positive bacteria, is structurally similar to enterobactin, a well known siderophore isolated from Gram-negative bacteria, but contains(More)
The nucleotide at position 791(G791) of E. coli 16S rRNA was previously identified as an invariant residue for ribosomal function. In order to characterize the functional role of G791, base substitutions were introduced at this position, and mutant ribosomes were analyzed with regard to their protein synthesis ability, via the use of a specialized ribosome(More)
Because the hydrolysis of ferric ion makes it very insoluble in aerobic, near neutral pH environments, most species of bacteria produce siderophores to acquire iron, an essential nutrient. The chirality of the ferric siderophore complex plays an important role in cell recognition, uptake, and utilization. Corynebactin, isolated from Gram-positive bacteria,(More)
The standardization of Long Term Evolution– Advanced (LTE–Advanced) is based on orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) and multiple–input multiple–output (MIMO) technologies. In OFDMA, inter–cell interference (ICI) is inevitable and causes performance degradation of user equipments (UE) in cell edge region. When the influence of ICI is(More)
Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) has developed into a popular scheme for wideband digital communications used in consumer applications such as digital broadcasting, wireless networking and broadband internet access. In the OFDM system, carrier frequency offset (CFO) causes intercarrier interference (ICI) which significantly degrades the(More)
