Identification of Yeast Rho1p GTPase as a Regulatory Subunit of 1,3-β-Glucan Synthase
It appears that Rho1p is a regulatory subunit of β(1→3)glucan synthase, a major structural component of the yeast cell wall that catalyzes the synthesis of 1,3-β-linked glucan. Expand
Bni1p implicated in cytoskeletal control is a putative target of Rho1p small GTP binding protein in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The results suggest that Rho1p regulates cytoskeletal reorganization at least through Bni1p and Pkc1p. Expand
Identification of TRAF6, a Novel Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor-associated Factor Protein That Mediates Signaling from an Amino-terminal Domain of the CD40 Cytoplasmic Region*
Results suggest that TRAF6 could mediate the CD40 signal that is transduced by the amino-terminal domain (230-245) of theCD40 cytoplasmic region and appears to be independent of other known TRAF family proteins. Expand
The complete primary structure of human estrogen receptor beta (hER beta) and its heterodimerization with ER alpha in vivo and in vitro.
This study indicates that ER alpha and ER beta can interact in vivo, cross-signaling each other. Expand
Chitinase system of Bacillus circulans WL-12 and importance of chitinase A1 in chitin degradation.
It was concluded that chitinase A1 is the key enzyme in the chit inase system of this bacterium. Expand
The roles of the C-terminal domain and type III domains of chitinase A1 from Bacillus circulans WL-12 in chitin degradation.
The mature form of chitinase A1 from Bacillus circulans WL-12 comprises a C-terminal domain, two type III modules (domains), and a large N-terminal domain which contains the catalytic site of theExpand
Structure and Expression of the Ah Receptor Repressor Gene*
Both transient transfection analysis and gel mobility shift assay revealed that the AhRR gene is up-regulated by a p65/p50 heterodimer that binds to the NF-κB site when the cells has been exposed to 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate, and this inducible expression was further enhanced by cotreatment of 3-methylcholanthrene. Expand
Identification of glutamic acid 204 and aspartic acid 200 in chitinase A1 of Bacillus circulans WL-12 as essential residues for chitinase activity.
Kinetic parameters for 4-methylumbelliferyl-N,N',N"-triacetylchitotriose hydrolysis were determined and results indicate a lysozyme-type catalytic mechanism of the chitinase. Expand
Characterization and gene cloning of 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
1,3-beta-D-Glucan synthase of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was solubilized and purified up to 700-fold by product entrapment and disruption of each gene was not lethal, but disruption of both genes was lethal. Expand
Expression and characterization of the chitin-binding domain of chitinase A1 from Bacillus circulans WL-12.
Observations suggest that ChBD(ChiA1) recognizes a structure which is present in insoluble or crystalline chitin but not in chito-oligosaccharides or in soluble derivatives of chitIn, and exhibited binding activity over a wide range of pHs. Expand
