The mechanisms involved in sensing oxidative signalling molecules, such as H2O2, in plant and animal cells are not completely understood. In the present study, we tested the postulate that oxidation of Met (methionine) to MetSO (Met sulfoxide) can couple oxidative signals to changes in protein phosphorylation. We demonstrate that when a Met residue(More)
VP39 is a bifunctional mRNA-modifying protein that acts as both an mRNA cap-specific 2'-O-methyltransferase and a processivity factor for VP55, the vaccinia poly(A) polymerase catalytic subunit. Although regions of the protein surface required for methyltransferase function are well defined, it has been unclear whether the protein polyadenylylation function(More)
