EMBO J. 1998;17:2926-37 pubmed..Significantly, these data suggest that the DEAH-box proteins act directly on RNA substrates within the spliceosome. ..
- Lutz M, Ellis S, Martin N. Proteasome mutants, pre4-2 and ump1-2, suppress the essential function but not the mitochondrial RNase P function of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene RPM2. Genetics. 2000;154:1013-23 pubmed..In an RPM2 wild-type background, pre4-2 and ump1-2 strains fail to grow at restrictive temperatures on nonfermentable carbon sources. These data link proteasome activity with Rpm2p and mitochondrial function. ..
- Miller R, Cheng S, Rose M. Bim1p/Yeb1p mediates the Kar9p-dependent cortical attachment of cytoplasmic microtubules. Mol Biol Cell. 2000;11:2949-59 pubmed..These experiments demonstrate that the interaction of cytoplasmic microtubules with the Kar9p cortical attachment site requires the microtubule-binding protein Bim1p. ..

Mol Cell Biol. 2001;21:209-23 pubmed..The finding that hUpf3p-X is a shuttling protein provides additional indication that NMD has both nuclear and cytoplasmic components...
- Nigavekar S, Tan Y, Cannon J. Glc8 is a glucose-repressible activator of Glc7 protein phosphatase-1. Arch Biochem Biophys. 2002;404:71-9 pubmed..In addition, extracellular glucose repressed the induction of Glc7 activity. These results are consistent with glucose repression of Glc8 expression and favor the role of Glc8 as a major Glc7 activator. ..
- Edmonson A, Mayfield D, Vervoort V, DuPont B, Argyropoulos G. Characterization of a human import component of the mitochondrial outer membrane, TOMM70A. Cell Commun Adhes. 2002;9:15-27 pubmed..TOMM70A could play a significant role in the import of nuclear-encoded mitochondrial proteins with internal targeting sites such as ADP/ATP carriers and the uncoupling proteins. ..
- Pregueiro A, Price Lloyd N, Bell Pedersen D, Heintzen C, Loros J, Dunlap J. Assignment of an essential role for the Neurospora frequency gene in circadian entrainment to temperature cycles. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2005;102:2210-5 pubmed publisher..Examination of several other phase markers as well as results of additional experimental tests indicate that the FLO is, at best, a slave oscillator to the TTFL, which underlies circadian rhythm generation in Neurospora...
