Characterization of androcam: A novel calcium-binding protein and a close relative of calmodulin from Drosophila melanogaster
The Androcam gene was originally isolated by Fyrberg et al. (1994), using reduced stringency cDNA library screening with a calmodulin (CaM) probe from our lab. The derived protein sequence of the new gene is 85% similar ...
Cloning and characterization of genes required for osmoregulation in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Salt stress induces multiple physiological responses in unicellular organisms. Responses include both immediate effects upon membrane permeability to select cytoplasmic solutes and changes in gene expression. This study ...
Hypertonic shock and the cell cycle: Identification of a stress-induced G2 delay in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Exposure of S. cerevisiae cells to an increase in external osmolarity induces a temporary growth arrest. Recovery from this stress is mediated by the accumulation of intracellular glycerol and the transcription of several ...
Derived amino acid sequence of shark (Squalus acanthias) liver pre-glutamine synthetase
The enzyme glutamine synthetase occurs as species- and as tissue-specific isozymes in elasmobranchs. In liver tissue, glutamine synthetase is mitochondrial where it functions to provide glutamine to carbamyl phosphate ...
The expression and regulation of the single calmodulin gene of Drosophila melanogaster
Calcium and calmodulin-based regulation of cell activity is one of the most widespread signaling mechanisms in eukaryotic organisms. Extensive experimentation has uncovered many diverse roles for calcium signals, many of ...
