Protein cold adaptation: Role of physico-chemical parameters in adaptation of proteins to low temperatures.
Tehrān, Iran. In J Theor Biol, Nov 2015
During years 2007 and 2008, we published three papers (Jahandideh, 2007a, JTB, 246, 159-166; Jahandideh, 2007b, JTB, 248, 721-726; Jahandideh, 2008, JTB, 255, 113-118) investigating sequence and structural parameters in adaptation of proteins to low temperatures.
Elaborating polarity: PAR proteins and the cytoskeleton.
New York City, United States. In Development, 2011
Here, we review recent findings on the role of PAR proteins in cell polarity in C. elegans and Drosophila, and emphasize the links that exist between PAR networks and cytoskeletal proteins that both regulate PAR protein localization and act as downstream effectors to elaborate polarity within the cell.
Asymmetric cell divisions in the early embryo of the leech Helobdella robusta.
Berkeley, United States. In Prog Mol Subcell Biol, 2006
Finally, we propose a model in which the unequal second cleavage in Helobdella may be regulated by the polarized distribution of PAR protein homologs, convergent with the unequal first cleavage of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans (super-phylum Ecdysozoa).
