Plant Phospholipases D and C and Their Diverse Functions in Stress Responses.
Wuhan, China. In Prog Lipid Res, Feb 2016
PLDs and PLCs in plants occur in different forms: the calcium-dependent phospholipid binding domain-containing PLDs (C2-PLDs), the plekstrin homology and phox homology domain-containing PLDs (PX/PH-PLDs), phosphoinositide-specific PLC (PI-PLC), and non-specific PLC (NPC).
A sweet code for glycoprotein folding.
Buenos Aires, Argentina. In Febs Lett, Dec 2015
The control mechanism essentially involves four components, resident lectin-chaperones (calnexin and calreticulin) that recognize monoglucosylated polymannose protein-linked glycans, lectin-associated oxidoreductase acting on monoglucosylated glycoproteins (ERp57), a glucosyltransferase that creates monoglucosylated epitopes in protein-linked glycans (UGGT) and a glucosidase (GII) that removes the glucose units added by UGGT.
Bacillus thuringiensis membrane-damaging toxins acting on mammalian cells.
Pisa, Italy. In Fems Microbiol Lett, 2014
Similar to B. cereus, B. thuringiensis produces an array of virulence factors acting against mammalian cells, such as phosphatidylcholine- and phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C (PC-PLC and PI-PLC), hemolysins, in particular hemolysin BL (HBL), and various enterotoxins.
More images that yet fresh images Beget.
Southampton, United Kingdom. In Immunity, 2009
In this issue of Immunity, Dong et al. (2009) describe the protein crystal structure heterodimer of tapasin and ERp57, which helps visualize the function of these proteins in loading of peptide antigens onto MHC class I molecules as part of the peptide loading complex within the endoplasmic reticulum.
Crystal structure of squid rhodopsin.
Nagoya, Japan. In Nature, 2008
Invertebrate phototransduction uses an inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate signalling cascade in which photoactivated rhodopsin stimulates a G(q)-type G protein, that is, a class of G protein that stimulates membrane-bound phospholipase Cbeta.
