  1. ncbi request reprint Regulated degradation of a class V myosin receptor directs movement of the yeast vacuole
    Fusheng Tang
    Department of Biochemistry, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa 52242, USA
    Nature 422:87-92. 2003
    ..Thus the regulated disruption of this transport complex places the vacuole in its proper location. This may be a general mechanism whereby organelles are deposited at their terminal destination...
  2. pmc Identification of an organelle-specific myosin V receptor
    Kuniko Ishikawa
    Dept of Biochemistry, The University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA
    J Cell Biol 160:887-97. 2003
    ..Organelle-specific receptors such as Vac17p provide a mechanism whereby a single type of myosin V can move diverse cargoes to distinct destinations at different times...
  3. pmc The Vac14p-Fig4p complex acts independently of Vac7p and couples PI3,5P2 synthesis and turnover
    Jason E Duex
    Department of Biochemistry, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA
    J Cell Biol 172:693-704. 2006
    ..These findings suggest that the dynamic changes in PI3,5P2 are controlled through a tight coupling of synthesis and turnover...
  4. ncbi request reprint A life-span extending form of autophagy employs the vacuole-vacuole fusion machinery
    Fusheng Tang
    Department of Biology, University of Arkansas, Little Rock, Arkansas 72204 1099, USA
    Autophagy 4:874-86. 2008
    ..Pending future biochemical studies, the concept of secretophagy may provide a mechanism for autophagy in life-span extension...
  5. doi request reprint An age-dependent feedback control model of calcium dynamics in yeast cells
    Fusheng Tang
    Department of Biology, FH 406, University of Arkansas at Little Rock, 2801 S University Ave, Little Rock, AR 72204 1099, USA
    J Math Biol 60:849-79. 2010
    ..1 microM while a very small fraction (1%) of aged wild type cells (>50 generations) can tolerate a high cytosolic calcium concentration of 0.5 microM...
  6. ncbi request reprint Vac8p, an armadillo repeat protein, coordinates vacuole inheritance with multiple vacuolar processes
    Fusheng Tang
    Department of Biochemistry, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA
    Traffic 7:1368-77. 2006
    ..These findings suggest that a major role of Vac8p is to spatially separate multiple functions thereby enabling vacuole inheritance to occur concurrently with other vacuolar processes...
  7. doi request reprint Osh6 overexpression extends the lifespan of yeast by increasing vacuole fusion
    Senetibeb Gebre
    Department of Biology, University of Arkansas, Little Rock, AR, USA
    Cell Cycle 11:2176-88. 2012
    ..Since active TORC1 stimulates vacuole scission and CR downregulates TORC1, Osh6 may link these two pathways by adjusting vacuolar membrane organization to extend lifespan...
  8. pmc A structural approach for finding functional modules from large biological networks
    Mutlu Mete
    Department of Applied Science, University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Little Rock, Arkansas, USA
    BMC Bioinformatics 9:S19. 2008
    ..Unfortunately, existing computer-based clustering methods developed to find those modules are either not so accurate or too slow...
  9. pmc Identification of longevity genes with systems biology approaches
    Yuanyou Tan
    Department of Biology, University of Arkansas, Little Rock, AR, USA
    Adv Appl Bioinform Chem 2:49-56. 2009
    ..A combination of hypothesis from data-mining, in silico experimentation from simulations, and wet laboratory validation will make the systematic identification of all longevity genes possible...
