regulatory proteins

regulatory proteins

1. proteins which regulate the contraction of muscle by controlling the interaction of myosin and actin. Calcium is an essential component of this reaction. The two proteins are troponin and tropomyosin.
2. special proteins that bind to specific regulatory sequences of DNA and act to switch genes on and off and thereby regulate the transcription of genes.

Additionally studies demonstrated that it can design and create CPABs that can penetrate the nucleus of cancer cells, which contains multiple regulatory proteins which are essential to cancer growth and so represents a rich repository of important targets for CPABs.
Articles pertaining to recent advances and new ideas in virology discuss such topics as phage tailulike bacteriocins; viruses in soil ecosystems; making sense of multifunctional proteins: HIV-1 accessory and regulatory proteins and connections to transcription; and uncovering the bridges and blockades to evolutionary convergence along the road to predicting Chikungunya virus evolution.
In this study, we aimed to compare the effects of SevoPoC and DRIPC on the expression of the three calcium regulatory proteins in an isolated rat heart model.

Specifically, we plan to (1) identify regulatory proteins involved in the degradation of HOXA9 by performing a FACS-based positive selection screen with a focused CRISPR/Cas9 library as perturbation tool, (2) validate candidate proteins involved in the control of HOXA9 stability, and (3) characterize hits suitable for pharmacologic targeting.
They found that certain types of glucose transporters (GLUT and SGLT) as well as their regulatory proteins were present in a higher number in type 2 diabetic rats.
Because c-Myc up-regulation can increase the cell proliferation rate (Schmidt 1999), we examined whether BPA could regulate the expression of other oncogenic cell-cycle regulatory proteins such as cyclin D1, cyclin E, and E2F1 in these cells under the same conditions.
Recent key observations demonstrate that some phenotypic transcription factors with co- regulatory proteins are retained on loci that are important for cell fate decisions (Rando and Verstrepen 2007; Ali et al.
