Mammalian Musashi1 (Msi1) is an RNA-binding protein that regulates the translation of target mRNAs, and participates in the maintenance of cell 'stemness' and tumorigenesis. Msi1 reportedly binds to the 3'-untranslated region of mRNA of Numb, which encodes Notch inhibitor, and impedes initiation of its translation by competing with eIF4G for PABP binding,(More)
For understanding the precise mechanisms of molecular recognition of proteins, three-dimensional structural analyses of the protein-protein complexes are essential. For this purpose, a new method to reveal complex structures was developed with the assistance of saturation transfer (SAT) and residual dipolar coupling (RDC) by heteronuclear NMR experiments,(More)
BACKGROUND Buruli ulcer (BU) caused by Mycobacterium ulcerans (M. ulcerans) has emerged as an important public health problem in several rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment are important in preventing disfiguring complications associated with late stages of the disease progression. Presently there is no simple and(More)
Colorless crystals of l-alanine hydrochloride monohydrate, C(3)H(8)NO(2) (+)·Cl(-)·H(2)O, were obtained from a powder sample that had been left standing in a refrigerator for a few years. The structure displays several inter-molecular hydrogen bonds: the hydroxyl O atom is involved in a single hydrogen bond to the chloride anion, while the ammonium group(More)
