Crystal structure of the superfamily 1 helicase from Tomato mosaic virus.
Tsukuba, Japan. In J Virol, 2012
On the basis of the structure, we constructed deletion mutants of the S666-to-Q1116 fragment and performed split-ubiquitin-based interaction assays in Saccharomyces cerevisiae with TOM1 and ARL8, host proteins that are essential for tomato mosaic virus RNA replication.
Arl8 and SKIP act together to link lysosomes to kinesin-1.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Dev Cell, 2012
Arl8 and SKIP are required for lysosomes to distribute away from the microtubule-organizing center. We identify two kinesin light chain binding motifs in SKIP that are required for lysosomes to accumulate kinesin-1 and redistribute to the cell periphery.
Identification and characterization of LASP2 gene in silico.
Narashino, Japan. In Int J Mol Med, 2003
Some part of the LASP2/ NEBL-TEM7L-ARL8-CACNB2 locus on 10p12 was paralogous to the LASP1-TEM7-CACNB1 locus on 17q12, while the other part of the LASP2/NEBL-TEM7L-ARL8-CACNB2 locus was paralogous to the NEB-ARL5-CACNB4 locus on 2q23.
Design and synthesis of amphipathic 3(10)-helical peptides and their interactions with phospholipid bilayers and ion channel formation.
Fukuoka, Japan. In J Biol Chem, 1994
In the present study, three peptides, H-(Ala-Arg-Leu)8-OH (ARL8), H-(Val-Arg-Leu)8-OH (VRL8), and H-(Leu-Arg-Leu)8-OH (LRL8) which were designed on the basis of the S4 segment and expected to form 3(10)-helix, were synthesized and examined with regard to conformational change by the interaction with membranes, membrane perturbation ability, ion channel formation, and antimicrobial activity.
