E.; Marshall, M. R.; Kuruvilla, H. G. // Journal of Comparative Physiology A: Neuroethology, Sensory, Neu;Oct2003, Vol. 189 Issue 10, p781 

    Extracellular nucleotides are ubiquitous signaling molecules. ATP signals through two receptor types: the ionotropic P2X receptors, and the metabotropic P2Y receptors. ATP acts as a chemorepellent in Tetrahymena thermophila, where it causes a distinct avoidance response. The intracellular...

  • Inorganic phosphate blocks binding of pre-mi RNA to Dicer-2 via its PAZ domain. Fukunaga, Ryuya; Colpan, Cansu; Han, Bo W; Zamore, Phillip D // EMBO Journal;2/18/2014, Vol. 33 Issue 4, p371 

    In Drosophila, Dicer-1 produces micro RNAs (mi RNAs) from pre-mi RNAs, whereas Dicer-2 generates small interfering RNAs from long double-stranded RNA (ds RNA), a process that requires ATP hydrolysis. We previously showed that inorganic phosphate inhibits Dicer-2 cleavage of pre-mi RNAs, but not...

  • Direct observation of the binding state of the kinesin head to the microtubule. Guydosh, Nicholas R.; Block, Steven M. // Nature;9/3/2009, Vol. 461 Issue 7260, p125 

    The dimeric motor protein kinesin-1 converts chemical energy from ATP hydrolysis into mechanical work used to transport cargo along microtubules. Cargo attached to the kinesin stalk moves processively in 8-nm increments as its twin motor domains (heads) carry out an asymmetric,...

  • Control of Nucleosome Positions by DNA Sequence and Remodeling Machines. Gavin Schnitzler // Cell Biochemistry & Biophysics;Jul2008, Vol. 51 Issue 2/3, p67 

    Abstract  Recent studies have shown that promoter nucleosomes frequently adopt specific positions, and indicate that these positions functionally regulate transcription factor binding. Other studies indicate that DNA sequence has a major role in establishing these nucleosome positions,...

  • Unexpectedly General Replaceability of ATP in ATP-Requiring Enzymes. Kinoshita, Yasunori; Nishigaki, Koichi // Journal of Biochemistry;1997, Vol. 122 Issue 1, p205 

    ATP-dependent enzymes were investigated as to the stringency of their ATP requirement. For all the enzymes examined except firefly luciferase (including hexokinase, polynucleo-tide kinase, T4 DNA ligase, and T4 RNA ligase) ATP could be replaced with dATP, contradicting previous data. Considering...

    Background: The ATP-binding cassette transporter ABCC6 gene is located on chromosome 16 between its two pseudogenes (ABCC6P1 and ABCC6P2). Previously, we have shown that ABCC6P1 is transcribed and affects ABCC6 at the transcriptional level. In this study we aimed to determine copy number...

    Creatine is a nonessential dietary component that, when supplemented in the diet, has shown physiological benefits in athletes, in animal-based models of disease and in patients with various muscle, neurological and neuromuscular disease. The clinical relevance of creatine supplementation is...

  • better together. Challem, Jack // Better Nutrition;May2010, Vol. 72 Issue 5, p16 

    The author discusses how coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid work together in related biochemical pathways to break down food molecules to create energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The benefits of these dietary supplements include improved mental function as...
