This paper addresses some of the problems encountered in propagating high-speed signals on lossy transmission lines encountered in highperformance computers. A technique is described for including frequency-dependent losses, such as skin effect and dielectric dispersion, in transmission line analyses. The disjoint group of available tools i brought(More)
The natural product lactacystin exerts its cellular antiproliferative effects through a mechanism involving acylation and inhibition of the proteasome, a cytosolic proteinase complex that is an essential component of the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway for intracellular protein degradation. In vitro, lactacystin does not react with the proteasome; rather, it(More)
Lactacystin is a Streptomyces metabolite that inhibits cell cycle progression and induces differentiation in a murine neuroblastoma cell line. The cellular target of lactacystin is the 20 S proteasome, also known as the multicatalytic proteinase complex, an essential component of the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway for intracellular protein degradation. In(More)
Interaction of heat shock transcription factor-1 (HSF-1) with the seventy kilodalton heat shock cognate protein (HSC70) was examined in NIH 3T3 cells. HSF-1 was found in the cytoplasm of non-stressed cells associated with HSC70 in large (Mr 400-500,000) complexes. After heat shock, HSF-1 became concentrated in the nucleus in smaller, more stable complexes(More)
We have developed an assay to continuously monitor the branched amino acid preferring peptidase (BrAAP) activity of the proteasome. This assay is based on the hydrolysis of the fluorogenic peptide, Abz-Gly-Pro-Ala-Leu-Ala-Nba (Abz is 2-aminobenzoyl and Nba is 4-nitrobenzylamide) which is cleaved exclusively at the Leu-Ala bond by the 20S proteasome with a(More)
What Is Innovation? It¿s not always about inventing something entirely new. Innovation occurs at the intersection of invention and insight. It¿s about the application of invention - the fusion of new developments and new approaches to solve problems.
