We have characterized the substrate specificity and mechanism of transport of the human multidrug resistance-associated protein 3 (MRP3). A murine fibroblast-like cell line generated from the kidneys of mice that lack Mdr1a/b and Mrp1 was retrovirally transduced with MRP3 cDNA. Stable clones overproducing MRP3 were resistant to the epipodophyllotoxins(More)
Genetic mechanisms(s) of gamma-ray resistance of the diploid and budding haploid cells of S. cerevisiae were investigated, with special reference to mitotic recombination, by examining 11 rad mutant strains. The radiosensitivity of the diploid was markedly enhanced in certain gamma-ray-sensitive rad mutants, whereas the sensitivity of the haploid was not so(More)
The kinetics of protein adsorption/desorption onto peptide microarrays was studied using real-time surface plasmon resonance (SPR) imaging. S protein binding interactions were examined using an array composed of five different peptides: N terminal and C terminal immobilized wild-type S peptide (S1 and S2), an alternate binding sequence derived by phage(More)
After UV-irradiation of G1 phase cells, most gene conversion and crossing-over took place in cells of incision-proficient strains without post-irradiation incubation. In contrast, incision-deficient cells markedly induced both of these recombinational events only after irradiated cells were incubated for several hours in liquid growth medium before(More)
After the photoaddition of mono- and bifunctional furocoumarins to G1 phase cells, most gene conversion and crossing-over occurred without post-irradiation incubation of these cells in incision-proficient strains. In contrast, incision-deficient cells showed marked induction of both recombinational events only after treated cells had been incubated for(More)
The effects of far (254 nm) and near (290-350 nm) ultraviolet (UV) light on mutations, intragenic and intergenic recombinations were compared in diploid strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. At equivalent survival levels there was not much difference in the induction of nonsense and missense mutations between far- and near-UV radiations. However, frameshift(More)
