    Kinetic Characterization of the Shigella Type Three Secretion System ATPase Spa47 Using α-32P ATP
    Authors:  Heather B. Case and Nicholas E. Dickenson, date: 11/05/2018, view: 2358, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] ATPases represent a diverse class of enzymes that utilize ATP hydrolysis to support critical biological functions such as driving ion pumps, providing mechanical work, unfolding/folding proteins, and supporting otherwise thermodynamically unfavorable chemical reactions. We have recently shown that the Shigella protein Spa47 is an ATPase ...
    Measurement of RNA-induced PKR Activation in vitro
    Author:  Kobe C. Yuen, date: 03/20/2017, view: 5246, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Protein kinase R (PKR) is one of the key RNA-activated sensors for innate immunity. PKR is activated by pathogenic or aberrant RNAs such as short double-stranded RNAs or those with imperfect secondary structures, as well as a reduction in the amount and number of RNA modifications. Activation of PKR may be an underlying mechanism for the ...
