In response to stress and nutrient starvation, the Saccharomyces cerevisiae transcription factor Msn2p accumulates in the nucleus and activates expression of a broad array of genes. Here, we analyze the role of the Tor (target of rapamycin) signaling pathway in mediating these responses. Inactivation of the Tor pathway component Tap42p using tap42(Ts)(More)
Cdc37 is a molecular chaperone required for folding of protein kinases. It functions in association with Hsp90, although little is known of its mechanism of action or where it fits into a folding pathway involving other Hsp90 cochaperones. Using a genetic approach with Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we show that CDC37 overexpression suppressed a defect in v-Src(More)
Hand rehabilitation often consists of repetitive exercises, which may result in reduced patient compliance and decreased results. The Mobile Music Touch (MMT) is proposed as an engaging form of hand rehabilitation. MMT is a lightweight, wireless haptic music instruction system consisting of gloves and a mobile Bluetooth-enabled computing device, such as a(More)
In this paper, the authors describe and discuss UrbanRemix, a platform consisting of mobile-device applications and web-based tools to facilitate collaborative field recording, sound exploration, and soundscape creation. Reflecting on its use at workshops, festivals and community events, they evaluate the project in terms of its ability to enable(More)
Cdc37 is a molecular chaperone that has a general function in the biogenesis of protein kinases. We identified mutations within the putative "protein kinase binding domain" of Cdc37 that alleviate the conditional growth defect of a strain containing a temperature-sensitive allele, tpk2(Ts), of the cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA). These dominant(More)
