A series of 8 monochloroarenes have been tested for mutagenicity in the Salmonella/microsome assay. None of the compounds was detectably active in the absence of mammalian activation whereas, depending on structure, some of the compounds were mutagenic in its presence having responses higher than those reported for the parent compounds.
Up-frameshift (Upf) complex facilitates the degradation of aberrant mRNAs containing a premature termination codon (PTC) and its products in yeast. Here we report that Sse1, a member of the Hsp110 family, and Hsp70 play a crucial role in Upf-dependent degradation of the truncated FLAG-Pgk1-300 protein derived from PGK1 mRNA harboring a PTC at codon position(More)
