- Liu Y, Xu L, Opalka N, Kappler J, Shu H, Zhang G. Crystal structure of sTALL-1 reveals a virus-like assembly of TNF family ligands. Cell. 2002;108:383-94 pubmed..Finally, we found the virus-like cluster of sTALL-1 exists in physiological condition. We propose that this virus-like assembly of sTALL-1 is the functional unit for TALL-1 in vivo. ..
- Slavov D, Gardiner K. Phylogenetic comparison of the pre-mRNA adenosine deaminase ADAR2 genes and transcripts: conservation and diversity in editing site sequence and alternative splicing patterns. Gene. 2002;299:83-94 pubmed..Patterns and levels of editing and alternative splicing vary among organisms, and include novel N-terminal exons and splicing events. ..
- Lyman M, Demmin G, Banfield B. The attenuated pseudorabies virus strain Bartha fails to package the tegument proteins Us3 and VP22. J Virol. 2003;77:1403-14 pubmed..Furthermore, our data suggest that one or more of the gI, gE, Us9, or Us2 genes influences the localization of the Us3 protein in infected cells, and this effect may be important for the proper incorporation of Us3 into virions. ..

DNA Cell Biol. 2003;22:329-38 pubmed publisher..These data suggest that ALDH1A1 may contribute to corneal cellular defense against oxidative damage by metabolizing toxic aldehydes produced during UV-induced lipid peroxidation...
- Matsunaga M, Jaehning J. A mutation in the yeast mitochondrial core RNA polymerase, Rpo41, confers defects in both specificity factor interaction and promoter utilization. J Biol Chem. 2004;279:2012-9 pubmed..The fact that mutation of Rpo41 results in selective transcription defects indicates that the core RNAP, like T7RNAP, plays an important role in promoter utilization. ..
