Direct cAMP Signaling through G-Protein-Coupled Receptors Mediates Growth Cone Attraction Induced by Pituitary Adenylate Cyclase-Activating Polypeptide
These results establish cAMP signaling as an independent pathway capable of mediating growth cone attraction induced by a physiologically relevant peptide acting through GPCRs. Expand
Evolution of Plant-Like Crystalline Storage Polysaccharide in the Protozoan Parasite Toxoplasma gondii Argues for a Red Alga Ancestry
A case is built for the separate evolution of semicrystalline storage polysaccharides upon acquisition of photosynthesis in eukaryotes as well as in both red algae and apicomplexan parasites. Expand
Functions of eIF3 downstream of 48S assembly impact AUG recognition and GCN4 translational control
eIF3b functions between 48S assembly and subunit joining to influence AUG recognition and reinitiation on GCN4 mRNA, and genetic evidence suggests that 40S–60S sub unit joining is not rate‐limiting in the prt1‐1 mutant. Expand
Muscle satellite cell-specific genes identified by genetic profiling of MyoD-deficient myogenic cell.
Several previously uncharacterized genes that represent putative MyoD target genes were identified, including Pw1, Dapk2, Sytl2, and NLRR1, and additional endothelial and hematopoietic markers were identified supporting a nonsomitic developmental origin of the satellite cell myogenic lineage. Expand
Muscle satellite cells adopt divergent fates
C cultured myofibers are used to model muscle regeneration and it is shown that satellite cells adopt divergent fates, suggesting that satellites either differentiate or switch from terminal myogenesis to maintain the satellite cell pool. Expand
Pax-7 up-regulation inhibits myogenesis and cell cycle progression in satellite cells: a potential mechanism for self-renewal.
Analysis of Pax-7 expression in activated satellite cells unexpectedly revealed substantial heterogeneity within individual clones, and data support the concept that satellite cell self-renewal may be a primary mechanism for replenishment of the satellite cell compartment during skeletal muscle regeneration. Expand
Rab GTPases and Myosin Motors in Organelle Motility
It is argued that Rabs are ideally suited to perform this role as they are exquisite organelle markers and the molecular switch property of Rabs may enable them to regulate the timing of the myosin association with the target organelle. Expand
The tor pathway: a target for cancer therapy
In addition to the role of rapamycin as an immune suppressant, emerging data indicate that genetic and metabolic changes accompanying malignant transformation might cause hypersensitivity to TOR inhibition. Expand
Developmentally regulated biosynthesis of carbohydrate and storage polysaccharide during differentiation and tissue cyst formation in Toxoplasma gondii.
How the genes and enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolisms are used as molecular and biochemical tools for the elucidation of molecular mechanisms controlling T. gondii stage interconversion and cyst formation is discussed. Expand
GPI-anchored uPAR requires Endo180 for rapid directional sensing during chemotaxis
It is demonstrated that Endo180 is a general promoter of random cell migration and has a more specific function in cell chemotaxis up a uPA gradient and is a crucial link between uPA–uPAR and setting of the internal cellular compass. Expand
