The sterol regulatory element binding protein (SREBP) family of transcription activators are critical regulators of cholesterol and fatty acid homeostasis. We previously demonstrated that human SREBPs bind the CREB-binding protein (CBP)/p300 acetyltransferase KIX domain and recruit activator-recruited co-factor (ARC)/Mediator co-activator complexes through(More)
Previous experiments suggest a connection between the N-alpha-acetylation of proteins and sensitivity of cells to apoptotic signals. Here, we describe a biochemical assay to detect the acetylation status of proteins and demonstrate that protein N-alpha-acetylation is regulated by the availability of acetyl-CoA. Because the antiapoptotic protein Bcl-xL is(More)
A high-precision solution structure of the elastase inhibitor eglin c was determined by NMR and distance geometry calculations. A large set of 947 nuclear Overhauser (NOE) distance constraints was identified, 417 of which were quantified from two-dimensional NOE spectra at short mixing times. In addition, a large number of homonuclear 1H-1H and(More)
The fast Fourier transformation has been the gold standard for transforming data from time to frequency domain in many spectroscopic methods, including NMR. While reliable, it has as a drawback that it requires a grid of uniformly sampled data points. This needs very long measuring times for sampling in multidimensional experiments in all indirect(More)
We have developed a tool for computer-assisted assignments of protein NMR spectra from triple resonance data. The program is designed to resemble established manual assignment procedures as closely as possible. IBIS exports its results in XEASY format. Thus, using IBIS the operator has continuous visual and accounting control over the progress of the(More)
The Fourier transform has been the gold standard for transforming data from the time domain to the frequency domain in many spectroscopic methods, including NMR spectroscopy. While reliable, it has the drawback that it requires a grid of uniformely sampled data points, which is not efficient for decaying signals, and it also suffers from artifacts when(More)
Modern high-field NMR instruments provide unprecedented resolution. To make use of the resolving power in multidimensional NMR experiment standard linear sampling through the indirect dimensions to the maximum optimal evolution times (~1.2T (2)) is not practical because it would require extremely long measurement times. Thus, alternative(More)
Recognition of the proper start codon on mRNAs is essential for protein synthesis, which requires scanning and involves eukaryotic initiation factors (eIFs) eIF1, eIF1A, eIF2, and eIF5. The carboxyl terminal domain (CTD) of eIF5 stimulates 43S preinitiation complex (PIC) assembly; however, its precise role in scanning and start codon selection has remained(More)
Multi-dimensional NMR spectra have traditionally been processed with the fast Fourier transformation (FFT). The availability of high field instruments, the complexity of spectra of large proteins, the narrow signal dispersion of some unstructured proteins, and the time needed to record the necessary increments in the indirect dimensions to exploit the(More)
Sequence-specific 1H nuclear magnetic resonance assignments are presented for d-(GCATTAATGC)2. Using omega 1-scaled double quantum-filtered correlated spectroscopy, two-quantum spectroscopy, relayed coherence transfer spectroscopy and detailed analysis of the fine structure in these phase-sensitive spectra, the spin system of the bases and deoxyribose rings(More)
