Metal-dependent gene regulation in the causative agent of Lyme disease.
Indianapolis, United States. In Front Cell Infect Microbiol, 2012
Bb encodes a ferritin-like Dps homolog called NapA (also called BicA), which can bind Fe or copper (Cu(2+)), and a manganese (Mn(2+)) transport protein, Borrelia metal transporter A (BmtA); both proteins are required for colonization of the tick vector, but BmtA is also required for the murine host.
Structural basis of abscisic acid signalling.
Tokyo, Japan. In Nature, 2010
Here we present the crystal structures of the ABA receptor PYL1 bound with (+)-ABA, and the complex formed by the further binding of (+)-ABA-bound PYL1 with the PP2C protein ABI1.
In vitro reconstitution of an abscisic acid signalling pathway.
Riverside, United States. In Nature, 2010
Here we show that by combining the recently identified ABA receptor PYR1 with the type 2C protein phosphatase (PP2C) ABI1, the serine/threonine protein kinase SnRK2.6/OST1 and the transcription factor ABF2/AREB1, we can reconstitute ABA-triggered phosphorylation of the transcription factor in vitro.
