Using a novel algorithm for protein sequence/structure analysis, we propose a probable homology between the SWIB domain (the conserved domain of the 60 kda subunit of the SWIB complex involved in chromatin remodelling) and the p53-binding domain of the MDM2 oncoprotein. The homology suggests that the SWIB domain would adopt a structure similar to that of(More)
BACKGROUND Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome (SLOS) is an inborn error of cholesterol biosynthesis characterized by diminished cholesterol and increased 7-dehydrocholesterol (7-DHC) levels. 7-Dehydrocholesterol is highly reactive, giving rise to biologically active oxysterols. METHODS 7-DHC-derived oxysterols were measured in fibroblasts from SLOS patients and(More)
