  1. 1. Allosteric Regulation of mRNA Metabolism : -Mechanisms of Cap-Dependent Regulation of Poly(A)-specific Ribonuclease (PARN)

    Author : Per Nilsson; Anders Virtanen; Megerditch Kiledjian; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Cell and molecular biology; mRNA degradation; deadenylation; cap; poly A ; PARN; allosteric regulation; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Degradation of mRNA is a highly regulated step important for proper gene expression. Degradation of eukaryotic mRNA is initiated by shortening of the 3’ end located poly(A) tail. Poly(A)-specific ribonuclease (PARN) is an oligomeric enzyme that degrades the poly(A) tail with high processivity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Allosteric Regulation and Radical Transfer in Ribonucleotide Reductase

    Author : Karl-Magnus Larsson; Pär Nordlund; Derek Logan; Roger Kornberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; allosteric regulation; substrate specificity; ribonucleotide reductase; radical; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Abstract : The stability of biological life over time requires that the integrity of the genetic material of an organism, the genome, be maintained as it is passed on from one generation to the next. All known cellular life has DNA-based genomes, which are duplicated before each cell division in a process called replication. READ MORE

  3. 3. DNA precursor biosynthesis-allosteric regulation and medical applications

    Abstract : Ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) is a key enzyme for de novo dNTP biosynthesis. We have studied nucleotide-dependent oligomerization of the allosterically regulated mammalian RNR using a mass spectrometry–related technique called Gas-phase Electrophoretic Mobility Macromolecule Analysis (GEMMA).

  4. 4. Allosteric regulation of synaptic processes

    Author : Ranjita Dutta Roy; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Glutamatergic neurotransmission is of key importance for short-term and long-term plasticity in the hippocampus, a part of the medial temporal lobe which is responsible for processes of explicit semantic and spatial memory. Short-term plasticity is mainly regulated by the presynaptic neuron and long-term plasticity is to large parts regulated by the post-synaptic neuron. READ MORE

  5. 5. Quaternary structure and interaction approaches to allosteric regulation of class I ribonucleotide reductases

    Abstract : Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) chains in which our genetic blueprint is stored are built from four DNA precursors by DNA polymerases. The enzyme ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) provides the only de novo synthesis pathway of deoxyribonucleotides from ribonucleotides and is essential for nearly all organisms. READ MORE
