    Genome Biol 8:R144. 2007
    ..Many of these could be ordered by clustering into functional groups. The dataset allows one to search and retrieve movies on a gene-by-gene and phenotype-by-phenotype basis...

    Peter A Thomason
    Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
    Dev Biol 292:358-70. 2006
    ..Uniquely for a histidine kinase, DhkK is located in the nuclear envelope. Entry into culmination requires the DhkK response regulator domain, which appears to directly regulate cyclic AMP signaling...

    Satoshi Sawai
    Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey 08544, USA
    Nature 433:323-6. 2005
    ..A theoretical model suggests that autoregulation of cell excitability mediated by protein kinase A acts to optimize the number of signalling centres...

    Mol Microbiol 65:508-20. 2007
    ..We propose that the hydrophobic effect normally promotes burial of Ile(104) and hence cAR1 inactivation, while polar substitution of Ile(104) mitigates this effect, resulting in activation...
