Milk evolved as a means of providing for the postnatal needs of the developing
mammalian neonate. Any perception that milk is a simple, homogeneous fluid does
not adequately acknowledge the remarkable array of complex activities and
functionalities of its constituent components.
The Nobel Prize in Medicine 1968 for interpretation of the genetic code and its function in protein synthesis and in Chemistry 2009 for studies of the structure and function of the ribosome highlighted the ground-breaking experiment performed on May 15, 1961 by Nirenberg and Matthaei and their principal breakthrough on the creation of "cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) system". Since then the continuous technical advances have revitalized CFPS system as a simple and powerful technology platform for industrial and high-throughput protein production....
Stress protein responses have evolved in part as a mechanism to protect
cells from the toxic effects of environmental damaging agents. Oesophageal
squamous epithelial cells have evolved an atypical stress response that
results in the synthesis of a 53 kDa protein of undefined function named
squamous epithelial-induced stress protein of 53 kDa (SEP53).
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades play important roles in
mediating pathogen responses and reactive oxygen species signaling. In
plants, MAPKs are classified into four major groups (A–D). Previous stud-ies have mainly focused on groups A and B, but little is known about
The DevR response regulator mediates adaptation ofMycobacterium tuber-culosisto various signals that are likely to be encountered within the host
such as hypoxia, nitric oxide, carbon monoxide and ascorbic acid. DevR is
proposed as a promising target for developing drugs against dormant bac-teria.
More than 40 years ago, bone morphogenetic proteins
(BMPs) were recognized by their ability to induce ectopic
bone and cartilage formation, but it was not until the late
1980s that the proteins responsible for ‘bone formation by
autoinduction’ were isolated and sequenced.
InArabidopsis thaliana, the serine⁄threonine protein kinase oxidative signal-inducible 1 (OXI1), mediates oxidative stress signalling. Its activity is
required for full activation of the mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAP-Ks), MPK3 and MPK6, in response to oxidative stress.
The regulation of protein expression on the cell surface membrane is an
important component of the cellular response to extracellular signalling.
The translation of extracellular signalling into specific protein localization
often involves the post-translational modification of cargo proteins.
Eukaryotic cells respond to the accumulation of unfolded proteins in the
endoplasmic reticulum (ER). In this case, so-called unfolded protein
response (UPR) genes are induced. We determined the transcriptional
expression ofArabidopsis thaliana UPRgenes by fluid microarray analysis
of tunicamycin-treated plantlets. Two hundred and fifteen up-regulated
genes and 17 down-regulated ones were identified.
Soy proteins as plywood adhesives: formulation and characterization to develop and characterize formaldehyde free soybean wood adhesives with improved water resistance. Second order response surface regression models were used to determine the effects of soy protein isolate concentration, sodium chloride, and ph on adhesive performance.
Bacterial biofilms are regarded to be the primary aetiological factor in the initiation of
gingival inflammation and subsequent destruction of periodontal tissues (Offenbacher 1996)
and three major specific pathogens have been repeatedly identified as etiologic agents,
namely Aggregatibacter (Actinobacillus) actinomycetemcomitans (Aa), Porphyromonas gingivalis
(Pg) and Tannerella forsythia (Tf) (Socransky et al. 1998).
Several new aspects have been
highlighted: for example, a novel role for lipids as receptors which drive protein
sorting, the diversity of the sorting events that occur at the level of the Golgi
apparatus, and the cross talk between exocytosis and autophagy. Moreover, an
interesting example of how the knowledge of these pathways is exploited to generate
novel secretory routes to direct the synthesis of bio-molecules in “cell factories” is
“Epigenetics” as introduced by ConradWaddington in 1946, is defined as a set of interactions
between genes and the surrounding environment, which determines the phenotype or
physical traits in an organism, (Murrell et al., 2005;Waddington, 1942). Initial research focused
on genomic regions such as heterochromatin and euchromatin based on dense and relatively
loose DNA packing, since these were known to contain inactive and active genes respectively,
(Yasuhara et al., 2005).
