Inhibition of protein synthesis per se does not potentiate the stress-activated protein kinases (SAPKs; also known as cJun NH2-terminal kinases [JNKs]). The protein synthesis inhibitor anisomycin, however, is a potent activator of SAPKs/JNKs. The mechanism of this activation is unknown. We provide evidence that in order to activate SAPK/JNK1, anisomycin(More)
The ribotoxic stress response, which is conserved between prokaryotes and eukaryotes, is a cellular reaction to cytotoxic interference with the function of the 3'-end of the large (23 S/28 S) ribosomal RNA. The 3'-end of the large rRNA is directly involved in the three sequential steps of translational elongation: the aminoacyl-tRNA binding, the peptidyl(More)
Cytotoxic endoribonucleases (RNases) possess a potential for use in cancer therapy. However, the molecular determinants of RNase-induced cell death are not well understood. In this work, we identify such determinants of the cytotoxicity induced by onconase, an amphibian cytotoxic RNase. Onconase displayed a remarkable specificity for tRNA in vivo, leaving(More)
Upon transformation into Escherichia coli or Cos-1 monkey cells, heteroduplex DNA made of two sequences containing many nucleotide mismatches yields a wide array of different molecules, some with a patchwork structure. Thus, complex heteroduplexes can be processed to generate many genetic variants.
A series of 2-alpha-L-rhamnopyranosylnitro[1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a] pyridine C-nucleosides was synthesized from the condensation oa thioiminoether with nitro-2-pyridylhydrazines. Catalytic reduction afforded the corresponding amino derivative. A 1',2' unsaturated C-nucleoside was also obtained by two different routes. Selective oxidation gave the 3'- and(More)
A single VL30 element present in the RVL-3 cell line was transcriptionally induced by both epidermal growth factor (EGF) and the protein kinase C (pkC) activators 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) and sn-1,2-dioctanoylglycerol within 5 min of stimulation. Following TPA-induced depletion of protein kinase C activity, EGF stimulation of VL30(More)
Time Series Forecasting is an area being concerned by the researchers. Recently, many time series forecasting solutions have been given, but the forecasting accuracy of these solutions needs to be taken into consideration. In this paper, we propose an evolutionary ensemble-based model and experimented it on four sets of test data on exchange rates (USD,(More)
Three new steroid biglycosides, plancisides A-C (1-3), were isolated from the ethanolic extract of the starfish Acanthaster planci. The structures of 1-3 were determined by extensive NMR and ESI-MS techniques, as (24S)-28-O-[β-D-galactofuranosyl-(1-->5)-α-L-arabinofuranosyl]-24-methyl-5α-cholestane-3β, 4β, 6α, 8, 15α,16α, 28-heptol (1),(More)
