We present a biochemical and crystallographic characterization of active site mutants of the yeast 20S proteasome with the aim to characterize substrate cleavage specificity, subunit intermediate processing, and maturation. beta1(Pre3), beta2(Pup1), and beta5(Pre2) are responsible for the postacidic, tryptic, and chymotryptic activity, respectively. The(More)
ATP sulfurylases (ATPSs) are ubiquitous enzymes that catalyse the primary step of intracellular sulfate activation: the reaction of inorganic sulfate with ATP to form adenosine-5'-phosphosulfate (APS) and pyrophosphate (PPi). With the crystal structure of ATPS from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we have solved the first structure of a member of the ATP(More)
Medical doctors and researchers in bio-medicine are increasingly confronted with complex patient data, posing new and difficult analysis challenges. These data are often comprising high-dimensional descriptions of patient conditions and measurements on the success of certain therapies. An important analysis question in such data is to compare and correlate(More)
The ubiquitous enzyme ATP sulfurylase (ATPS) catalyzes the primary step of intracellular sulfate activation, the formation of adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate (APS). It has been shown that the enzyme catalyzes the generation of APS from ATP and inorganic sulfate in vitro and in vivo, and that this reaction can be inhibited by a number of simple molecules. Here,(More)
The problem of collision detection between objects is fundamental in many different communities including CAD, robotics, computer graphics, and computational geometry. This article presents a fast collision detection technique for all types of rigid bodies, demonstrated using polygon soups. We present two algorithms for computing a discrete spherical(More)
Biomedical experts are increasingly confronted with what is often called Big Data, an important subclass of high-dimensional data. High-dimensional data analysis can be helpful in finding relationships between records and dimensions. However, due to data complexity, experts are decreasingly capable of dealing with increasingly complex data. Mapping higher(More)
In this paper we present a software architecture for the integration of a RESTful web service interface in OpenSG applications. The proposed architecture can be integrated into any OpenSG application with minimal changes to the sources. Extending a scene graph application with a web service interface offers many new possibilities. Without much effort it is(More)
