Small GTPases and Their Regulators Part G

Small GTPases play a key position in lots of elements of up to date mobile biology: regulate of telephone progress and differentiation; rules of cellphone adhesion and telephone stream; the association of the actin cytoskeleton; and the rules of intracellular vesicular shipping. This quantity plus its spouse Volumes 255 and 256 conceal all biochemical and organic assays at present in use for interpreting the function of small GTPases in those facets of phone biology on the molecular point.

Sigma Receptors: Chemistry, Cell Biology and Clinical Implications

Sigma receptors are promising drug improvement ambitions for a bunch of neurological, psychiatric, oncological, immunological, cardiovascular, ophthalmological, and gastrointestinal problems. they're structurally distinct proteins which are precise from classical G protein-coupled receptors, ionotropic receptors, or receptor tyrosine kinases.

The strains differ, however, in their content of a previously undescribed 5 x lo6 dalton plasmid, which appears to have been lost from one of the strains of A. nidulans. Roberts and Koths (1976), in the most thorough study published to date, showed that Agmenellum quadruplicatum (strain PR-6) harbours at least six CCC DNAs, which together comprise about 5 per cent of the total DNA. 5, 10,20, 24 and 65-80 x lo6) were determined by electron microscopy and agarose-gel electrophoresis. Neutral cesium-chloride gradient centrifugation showed a more heterogeneous band for pooled plasmids than for chromosomal DNA, suggesting that plasmids differ (slightly) in GC content from each other and from chromosomal DNA.

Nidulans enzyme initiates RNA synthesis efficiently at only about half of the sites at which it binds. More recently, S. S. Miller, F. Ausubel and L. Bogorad (in preparation) have found that A . nidulans and Fremyella diplosiphon RNA polymerases bind specifically to the PRpromoter borne by a restriction fragment of I DNA, and initiate I-repressor repressible transcription from this promoter, as does E. coli RNA polymerase. The RNA products appear identical in size and sequence, if not in relative amounts, to those of the homologous enzyme.

1972; Carr, 1973). This leaves us with a variant of the initial notion; obligate autotrophs cannot assimilate energy-yielding substrates while heterotrophs can. , 1972; Stanier, 1973; Beauclerk and Smith, 1978). , 1976a; Stanier and Cohen-Bazire, 1977). A teleologically satisfying explanation based on the cell’s need to restrict utilization of endogenously-generated glucose may be possible. In the light, negative controls on glucose-6phosphate dehydrogenase activity are sensible; they limit unnecessary oxidation of photosynthetically generated glucose and allow glycogen storage.
