Chemokines : chemistry, biochemistry and biological function

Legler, Daniel F. ; Thelen, Marcus

In: Chimia : International journal for chemistry, 2016, vol. 70, no. 12, p. 856-859

The in vitro synthesis of correctly folded functional proteins remains challenging. Chemokines, which consist of only 70–100 amino acids, are accessible through solid- phase synthesis and easily fold into a thermally stable tertiary structure. From the time of their discovery in the late 1980s chemokines could therefore be synthesized using biochemical and chemical protocols for...

UDP-glucose : glycoprotein glucosyltransferase (UGGT1) promotes substrate solubility in the endoplasmic reticulum

Ferris, Sean P. ; Jaber, Nikita S. ; Molinari, Maurizio ; Arvan, Peter ; Kaufman, Randal J.

In: Molecular biology of the cell, 2013, vol. 24, no. 17, p. 2597-2608

Protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is error prone, and ER quality control (ERQC) processes ensure that only correctly folded proteins are exported from the ER. Glycoproteins can be retained in the ER by ERQC, and this retention contributes to multiple human diseases, termed ER storage diseases. UDP- glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase (UGGT1) acts as a central component of...

The motor activity of DNA2 functions as an ssDNA translocase to promote DNA end resection

Levikova, Maryna ; Pinto, Cosimo ; Cejka, Petr

In: Genes and Development, 2017, vol. 31, no. 5, p. 493-502

DNA2 nuclease–helicase functions in DNA replication and recombination. This requires the nuclease of DNA2, while, in contrast, the role of the helicase activity has been unclear. We now show that the motor activity of both recombinant yeast and human DNA2 promotes efficient degradation of long stretches of ssDNA, particularly in the presence of the replication protein A. This degradation is...

Physiological protein blocks direct the Mre11–Rad50–Xrs2 and Sae2 nuclease complex to initiate DNA end resection

Reginato, Giordano ; Cannavo, Elda ; Cejka, Petr

In: Genes and Development, 2017, vol. 31, no. 23-24, p. 2325-2330

DNA double-strand break repair by homologous recombination is initiated by DNA end resection, which is commenced by the Mre11–Rad50–Xrs2 complex and Sae2 in yeast. Here we report that the nonhomologous end joining factor Ku limits the exonuclease activity of Mre11 and promotes its endonuclease to cleave 5'-terminated DNA strands at break sites. Following initial endonucleolytic cleavage...
