    A new, simple procedure is proposed which enables acquisition of two or more chemical shifts encoded in a common dimension simultaneously in quadrature. For n chemical shifts projected in a single dimension, the expected effect is obtained by interleaved acquisition and appropriate combination...

    Ubiquitin ligases are well suited to regulate molecular networks that operate on a post-translational timescale. The F-box family of proteins-which are the substrate-recognition components of the Skp1-Cul1-F-box-protein (SCF) ubiquitin ligase-are important players in many mammalian functions....

  • Identification of conjugation specificity determinants unmasks vestigial preference for ubiquitin within the NEDD8 E2. Huang, Danny T.; Min Zhuang; Ayrault, Olivier; Schulman, Brenda A. // Nature Structural & Molecular Biology;Mar2008, Vol. 15 Issue 3, p280 

    Ubiquitin-like proteins (UBLs) modify targets via related E1-E2-E3 cascades. How is UBL conjugation fidelity established? Here we report the basis for UBL selection by UBL conjugating enzyme 12 (Ubc12), which is specific for the neural precursor cell expressed, developmentally down-regulated...

  • Grabbing E2 by the tail. Van Demark, Andrew P; Hill, Christopher P // Nature Structural & Molecular Biology;Oct2004, Vol. 11 Issue 10, p908 

    Ubiquitin-like proteins, including NEDD8, regulate a wide range of cellular processes and are mobilized by parallel biochemical pathways. A recent crystal structure explains how the NEDD8-specific El enzyme specifically recruits its cognate E2 enzyme by binding to a flexible N-terminal extension.

  • UBXN7 docks on neddylated cullin complexes using its UIM motif and causes HIF1a accumulation.  // BMC Biology;2012, Vol. 10 Issue 1, p36 

    The article presents a study which aims at determine whether the interaction of UBXN7 protein with cullins was direct or mediated by its ubiquitylated targets bound to the UBA domain. It describes the methodology of the study and reveals that UBXN7 interaction with cullins relies on the UIM...

    This article discucces the concept of systems biology. Systems biology represents an analytical approach to the relationships among elements of a system, with the goal of understanding its emergent properties. Broadly speaking, a system may include just a few protein molecules that together...
