At the termination step of protein synthesis, hydrolysis of the peptidyl-tRNA is jointly catalysed at the ribosome by the termination codon and the polypeptide release factor (eRF1 in eukaryotes). eRF1 forms in vivo and in vitro a stable complex with release factor eRF3, an eRF1-dependent and ribosome-dependent GTPase. The role of the eRF1-eRF3 complex in(More)
The transcription factor GAGA, encoded by the gene Trl, controls expression of many Drosophila melanogaster genes. We have compiled the presently largest sample (120 sites) of published nucleotide sequences with experimentally confirmed binding to GAGA protein. Analysis of the sample has demonstrated that despite an apparent structural diversity of the GAGA(More)
Transcription Regulatory Regions Database (TRRD) is an informational resource containing an integrated description of the gene transcription regulation. An entry of the database corresponds to a gene and contains the data on localization and functions of the transcription regulatory regions as well as gene expression patterns. TRRD contains only(More)
Class-1 polypeptide chain release factors (RFs) trigger hydrolysis of peptidyl-tRNA at the ribosomal peptidyl transferase center mediated by one of the three termination codons. In eukaryotes, apart from catalyzing the translation termination reaction, eRF1 binds to and activates another factor, eRF3, which is a ribosome-dependent and eRF1-dependent GTPase.(More)
Transcription Regulatory Regions Database (TRRD) has been developed for accumulation of experimental information on the structure-function features of regulatory regions of eukaryotic genes. Each entry in TRRD corresponds to a particular gene and contains a description of structure-function features of its regulatory regions (transcription factor binding(More)
BACKGROUND Reliable transcription factor binding site (TFBS) prediction methods are essential for computer annotation of large amount of genome sequence data. However, current methods to predict TFBSs are hampered by the high false-positive rates that occur when only sequence conservation at the core binding-sites is considered. RESULTS To improve this(More)
The GR-TRRD section of the TRRD database contains the presently largest sample of published nucleotide sequences with experimentally confirmed binding to the glucocorticoid hormone receptor (GR). This sample comprises 160 glucocorticoid receptor binding sites (GRbs) from 77 vertebrate glucocorticoid-regulated genes. Analysis of this sample has demonstrated(More)
rSNP_Guide is a novel curated database system for analysis of transcription factor (TF) binding to target sequences in regulatory gene regions altered by mutations. It accumulates experimental data on naturally occurring site variants in regulatory gene regions and site-directed mutations. This database system also contains the web tools for SNP analysis,(More)
Glycerol-skinned skeletal muscle fibres retain the defined sarcomeric structure of the myofibrils. We show here that a small fraction of two enzymes important for energy metabolism, the cytosolic muscle isoform of creatine kinase (EC 2.7.3.2), MM-creatine kinase (MM-CK), and enolase (EC 4.2.1.11), remains bound to skinned fibres. CK is slowly exchangeable,(More)
The C to T substitution in position 311 n. p. of K-ras gene intron 2 in mice resistant to lung cancer (M. spretus) attenuates NF-Y transcription factor binding site in comparison with sensitive ICR mice (M. musculus). Appreciable differences between ICR and M. spretus in general pattern of binding of nuclear proteins to K-ras gene DNA within 248-332 n. p.(More)
