Solution structure of P22 transcriptional antitermination N peptide–box B RNA complex
We have determined the solution structure of a 15-mer boxB RNA hairpin complexed with a 20-mer basic peptide of the N protein involved in bacteriophage P22 transcriptional antitermination. ComplexExpand

Deep penetration of an α-helix into a widened RNA major groove in the HIV-1 rev peptide–RNA aptamer complex
A combined NMR-molecular dynamics approach has been applied to determine the solution structure of a HIV-117-mer rev peptide bound to its 35-mer high affinity RNA aptamer binding site. ComplexExpand

Molecular recognition in the bovine immunodeficiency virus Tat peptide-TAR RNA complex.
BACKGROUND In lentiviruses such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and bovine immunodeficiency virus (BIV), the Tat (trans-activating) protein enhances transcription of the viral RNA by complexingExpand

RNA architecture dictates the conformations of a bound peptide.
BACKGROUND The biological function of several viral and bacteriophage proteins, and their arginine-rich subdomains, involves RNA-mediated interactions. It has been shown recently that bound peptidesExpand

Mechanism of γ-secretase cleavage activation: Is γ-secretase regulated through autoinhibition involving the presenilin-1 exon 9 loop?
Maturation of γ-secretase requires an endoproteolytic cleavage in presenilin-1 (PS1) within a peptide loop encoded by exon 9 of the corresponding gene. Deletion of the loop has been demonstrated toExpand

Sequence preference of 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-syn-diol epoxide-DNA binding in the mouse H-ras gene detected by UvrABC nucleases.
We have found that 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-syn-diol epoxide (syn-DMBADE)-modified DNA fragments are sensitive to UvrABC incision. The incisions occur mainly seven bases 5' and four bases 3' ofExpand

Sequence-dependent interactions of two forms of UvrC with DNA helix-stabilizing CC-1065-N3-adenine adducts.
The uvrA, uvrB, and uvrC genes of Escherichia coli control the initial steps of nucleotide excision repair. The uvrC gene product is involved in at least one of the dual incisions produced by theExpand
