Analysis of the lipid body proteome of the oleaginous alga Lobosphaera incisa
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Abstract Background Lobosphaera incisa (L. incisa) is an oleaginous microalga that stores triacylglycerol (TAG) rich in arachidonic acid in lipid bodies (LBs). This organelle is gaining attention in algal research, since ...
Ribosome-Associated Mba1 Escorts Cox2 from Insertion Machinery to Maturing Assembly Intermediates
The three conserved core subunits of the cytochrome c oxidase are encoded by mitochondria in close to all eukaryotes. The Cox2 subunit spans the inner membrane twice, exposing the N and C termini to the intermembrane ...
Manipulation of fungal development as source of novel secondary metabolites for biotechnology.
Fungal genomics revealed a large potential of yet-unexplored secondary metabolites, which are not produced during vegetative growth. The discovery of novel bioactive compounds is increasingly gaining importance. The high ...
Extraction and immunoblotting of proteins from embryos.
Chromosome condensation and decondensation during mitosis.
During eukaryotic cell division, nuclear chromatin undergoes marked changes with respect to shape and degree of compaction. Although already significantly compacted during interphase, upon entry into mitosis chromatin ...
Molecular determinants of snurportin 1 ligand affinity and structural response upon binding.
The transport of large biomolecules such as proteins and RNA across nuclear pore complexes is a field of strong interest and research. Although the basic mechanisms are fairly well understood, the details of the underlying ...
Novel Function of Distal-less as a Gap Gene during Spider Segmentation
Despite many aspects of the regulation of segmentation being conserved among arthropods, the evolution of novel gene functions has played an important role in the evolution of developmental regulation and the emergence of ...
Structural insights into the mechanism of the DEAH-box RNA helicase Prp43
The DEAH-box helicase Prp43 is a key player in pre-mRNA splicing as well as the maturation of rRNAs. The exact modus operandi of Prp43 and of all other spliceosomal DEAH-box RNA helicases is still elusive. Here, we report ...
