Protein-protein interactions and multi-component complexes of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases.
Seoul, South Korea. In Top Curr Chem, 2013
The mammalian multi-tRNA synthetase complex (MSC) consists of eight different enzymes: EPRS, IRS, LRS, QRS, MRS, KRS, RRS, and DRS, and three auxiliary proteins: AIMP1/p43, AIMP2/p38, and AIMP/p18.
Respiratory manifestations of gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Birmingham, United States. In Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2013
The following commentaries on respiratory manifestations of GERD address evidence for a role of a vagally mediated bronchoconstriction reflex in the development of asthma; the direct effects of airway obstruction on lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressure and reflux episodes; the mechanisms by which reflux may play roles in chronic cough and airway stenosis; the limited efficacy of laparoscopic antireflux surgery (LARS) in improving GERD-related respiratory symptoms; the search for a marker for microaspiration and reflux-induced airway disease; and the potential of proton pump inhibitor (PPI) treatment for patients presenting with asthma and GERD.
Silent information regulator 3: the Goldilocks of the silencing complex.
Baltimore, United States. In Genes Dev, 2010
Specifically, the N-terminal bromo-adjacent homology (BAH) domain plays a now well-defined role in silencing, and a picture is emerging in which both termini of Sir3p bind two locations on the nucleosome: (1) the loss of ribosomal DNA silencing (LRS) surface in the nucleosome core, and (2) the N-terminal histone tails for effective silencing at telomeres.
IL-5 and IL-5 receptor in asthma.
Montréal, Canada. In Mem Inst Oswaldo Cruz, 1996
Finally, there are several animal, and more recently in vitro lung explant, models of allergen induced eosinophilia, late airway responses (LARS), and bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR)--all of which support a link between IL-5 and airway eosinophilia and bronc
