Comparative genomics of the dictyostelids.
San Diego, United States. In Methods Mol Biol, 2012
Most of the genes known to be involved in specific signal transduction pathways that mediate intercellular communication are present in each of the sequenced species but both P. pallidum and D. fasciculatum appear to be missing the gene responsible for synthesis of GABA, gadA, suggesting that release of the SDF-2 precursor AcbA is not regulated by GABA in these species as it is in D. discoideum.
Unconventional secretion of Pichia pastoris Acb1 is dependent on GRASP protein, peroxisomal functions, and autophagosome formation.
San Diego, United States. In J Cell Biol, 2010
We discovered, surprisingly, that the secretion, processing, and function of an AcbA-derived peptide, SDF-2, are conserved between the yeast Pichia pastoris and D. discoideum.
What you need to know about GB virus C.
Saint Louis, United States. In Curr Gastroenterol Rep, 2005
The mechanism of this effect is not yet clear, but GBV-C has been shown to inhibit HIV replication in vitro through increased synthesis and secretion of anti-HIV b-chemokines MIP-1a, MIP-1b, RANTES, SDF-1, and SDF-2 and downregulation of CCR5 receptor expression.
