Bacterial Toxins: Methods and Protocols

The curiosity of investigators throughout a large spectrum of clinical dis- plines has been gradually prompted via the sector of bacterial toxin examine, a space that uses a wide number of organic, chemical, physicochemical, and medically orientated techniques. Researchers learning bacterial pollutants have to be familiar with these kind of disciplines to be able to paintings successfully within the box.


Quantity 322 of tools in Enzymology is devoted to apoptosis. significant subject matters coated comprise measuring apoptosis and apoptosis-induced endonucleases, measuring apoptosis in reduce organisms, proteases serious about apoptosis and their inhibitors, cellphone unfastened structures for tracking steps in apoptosis pathways, mitochondria and apoptosis, bCl-2 relations proteins, and learning receptors and sign transduction occasions implicated in cellphone survival and telephone loss of life.

Molecular Biology of Chromosome Function

Chromosomes have constitution, made up our minds via the interactions of proteins with DNA, and chromosomes have features, specifically, replication of DNA and transcription of messenger RNA. Chromosome constitution and serve as aren't separate issues, when you consider that chromosome association seasoned­ foundly impacts the job of the genome in replication and transcrip­ tion.

VI. SUBNUCLEAR TRAFFICKING OF STEROID RECEPTORS What is the fate of steroid receptors that emerge in the nucleus following passage through the NPC? In vivo footprinting analyses have established that steroid receptors can rapidly locate specific target sites within the genome 26 Donald B. DeFranco (Zaretand Yamamoto 1984, ReiketaI1991). How does this occur, and what is the mechanism by which steroid receptors traffic within the nucleus? , speckles or foci), and not randomly distributed. For example, Van Steensel and co-workers found that endogenous GRs in a variety of cultured cell types collected into 1,000-2,000 small nuclear speckles in hormone-treated cells (van Steensel et al 1995a).

J. BioI. Chern. 265: 20123-20130.

In support of this conclusion is the fact that newly synthesized RNA or RNA polymerase II did not co localize with GR speckles (van Steensel et al 1995a). In direct contrast to these results, different nuclear staining patterns of agonist-bound GR, as compared to antagonist-bound GR, were observed in living cells by Htun and co-workers, using a green fluorescent protein-GR fusion protein (Htun et aI1996). Since Htun and co-workers did not visualize sites of active transcription, it is not known what proportion of agonist-bound GRs visualized in their studies, if any, are actively involved in transcription.
