- Role of the yeast VAP homolog, Scs2p, in INO1 expression and phospholipid metabolismSatoshi Kagiwada
Department of Biological Science, Faculty of Science, Nara Women s University, Nara 630 8506
J Biochem 133:515-22. 2003..These results indicate that Scs2p can contribute to coordinated phospholipid metabolism including INO1 expression by regulating phosphatidylcholine synthesis through the CDP-choline pathway...
- The yeast VAP homolog Scs2p has a phosphoinositide-binding ability that is correlated with its activitySatoshi Kagiwada
Department of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science, Nara Women s University, Nara 630 8506, Japan
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 364:870-6. 2007..These results suggest the possibility that Scs2p activity is regulated by phosphoinositides to coordinate phospholipid biosynthesis in response to changes in phospholipid composition...
- Docosahexaenoic acid production and lipid-body formation in Schizochytrium limacinum SR21Eiko Morita
Graduate School of Humanities and Sciences, Nara Women s University, Nara, 630 8506, Japan
Mar Biotechnol (NY) 8:319-27. 2006..Electron micrographs prepared using a high-pressure freeze substitution technique revealed a fine structure of light- and dark-staining bands inside the lipid bodies in many stages of the cells...
- Human VAPA and the yeast VAP Scs2p with an altered proline distribution can phenocopy amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-associated VAPB(P56S)Shoko Nakamichi
Department of Biological Science and Environment, Graduate School of Humanities and Sciences, Nara Women s University, Nara 630 8506, Japan
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 404:605-9. 2011..This suggests that the appropriate distribution of three conserved prolines, not the existence of a particular proline, confers VAPA and Scs2p resistance to the Pro-56 mutation and, therefore, is critical for VAP activities...
