We used genome-wide expression analysis to explore how gene expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is remodeled in response to various changes in extracellular environment, including changes in temperature, oxidation, nutrients, pH, and osmolarity. The results demonstrate that more than half of the genome is involved in various responses to environmental(More)
Activation of protein-encoding genes involves recruitment of an RNA polymerase II holoenzyme to promoters. Since the Srb4 subunit of the holoenzyme is essential for expression of most class II genes and is a target of at least one transcriptional activator, we reasoned that suppressors of a temperature-sensitive mutation in Srb4 would identify other factors(More)
We have identified human ArhGAP9 as a novel MAP kinase docking protein that interacts with Erk2 and p38alpha through complementarily charged residues in the WW domain of ArhGAP9 and the CD domains of Erk2 and p38alpha. This interaction sequesters the MAP kinases in their inactive states through displacement of MAP kinase kinases targeting the same sites.(More)
There are individual and cultural differences in how memories of our emotions are cognitively represented. This article examines the cognitive representation of emotions in different cultures, as a result of emotional (in)consistency in different cultures. Using a continuous semantic priming task, we showed in two studies that individuals who were less(More)
INTRODUCTION Hyperfamiliarity, a phenomenon in which feelings of familiarity are evoked by novel stimuli, is well described in epilepsy and the lesioned brain. Abnormality of familiarity in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) have also been described in the literature, but more from a neuropsychological approach perspective.(More)
