We report the sequence, tissue distribution, and chromosome location of a novel gene, PDCD9 (programmed cell death 9). PDCD9 is the mammalian counterpart of the Gallus gallus pro-apoptotic protein p52. The human cDNA has an open reading frame of 1,314 nucleotides and was predicted to encode a protein of 438 amino acids with a calculated mass of 50 kDa. The protein sequences of chicken, mouse, and human PDCD9 are remarkably conserved. PDCD9 mRNA is expressed ubiquitously in adult tissues… Expand
The Structure and Specific Features of the cDNA Expression of the Human Gene MRPL37
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the RNA of the human MRPL37 gene is widely represented in the lymphoma populations of Raji B cells and MT4 T cells as well as in pancreas, liver, and lung embryonic fibroblasts WI-38 and LEH. Expand
A new face on apoptosis: death‐associated protein 3 and PDCD9 are mitochondrial ribosomal proteins
TLDR
The observations reported here implicate mitochondrial protein synthesis as a major component in cellular apoptotic signaling pathways. Expand
mtDNA controls expression of the Death Associated Protein 3.
TLDR
The results suggest that the mtDNA content plays a role in cell apoptosis by mediating the expression of DAP3, suggesting the existence of a post-transcriptional mechanism responsible for the depletion of the D AP3. Expand
BMRP is a Bcl‐2 binding protein that induces apoptosis
TLDR
Findings suggest that BMRP is a mitochondrial ribosomal protein involved in the regulation of cell death by apoptosis, probably affecting pathways mediated by Bcl‐2 and caspases. Expand
Cloning of the novel gene TM6SF1 reveals conservation of clusters of paralogous genes between human chromosomes 15q24→q26 and 19p13.3→p12
TLDR
A novel gene on chromosome 15, TM6SF1 is isolated and characterized, which encodes a 370 amino acid product with enhanced expression in spleen, testis and peripheral blood leukocytes and leads to a series of eleven genes in 19p13.3→p12 with close homology to genes in 15q24→ q26. Expand
Ribosomal Proteins and Human Diseases: Pathogenesis, Molecular Mechanisms, and Therapeutic Implications
TLDR
The recent advances in several forefronts of RP research are reviewed, including the understanding of their biological features and roles in regulating cellular functions, maintaining cell homeostasis, and their involvement in the pathogenesis of human diseases. Expand
Role of GTPase MTG1 in Mitochondrial Translation and heart Physiology
TLDR
The role of human MTG1, a conserved ribosome assembly GTPase, is examined, which controls mitochondrial translation by coupling mtLSU assembly with intersubunit bridge formation using the intrinsic GEF activity acquired by the mtSSU through mS27, a unique occurrence in translational systems. Expand
Mitochondrial ribosomes in cancer.
TLDR
The current knowledge regarding the dual function of mitoribosome components in protein synthesis and apoptosis and their association with cancer susceptibility and development is reviewed. Expand
Impaired mitochondrial protein synthesis in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
TLDR
Evidence provided in this study suggests for the first time that the mitochondrial translation defect(s) could be due to a decrease in the expression of one of the essential mitochondrial ribosomal proteins, MRPL11, in head and neck tumor biopsies. Expand
Mitochondrial protein synthesis: Figuring the fundamentals, complexities and complications, of mammalian mitochondrial translation
TLDR
This review integrates the current understanding of the molecular aspects of mitochondrial translation with recent advances in structural biology and identifies numerous key questions that will need to be answered to increase the knowledge of the Molecular mechanisms underlying mitochondrial protein synthesis.
