  • Correcting an instance of synthetic lethality with a pro-survival sequence. [Journal Article]
    Biochim Biophys Acta Mol Cell Res. 2020 Sep; 1867(9):118734.Zhou DR, Miller KA, … Greenwood MT
  • A human cDNA encoding the LIM domain containing 194 amino acid cysteine and glycine rich protein 3 (CSRP3) was identified as a BAX suppressor in yeast and a pro-survival sequence that abrogated copper mediated regulated cell death (RCD). Yeast lacks a CSRP3 orthologue but it has four LIM sequences, namely RGA1, RGA2, LRG1 and PXL1. These are known regulators of stress responses yet their roles in…
  • Direct Measurement of the Visible to UV Photodissociation Processes for the PhotoCORM TryptoCORM. [Journal Article]
    Chemistry. 2020 Apr 10 [Online ahead of print]Dessent CEH, Cercola R, … Fairlamb IJS
  • PhotoCORMs are light-triggered compounds that release CO for medical applications. Here, we apply laser spectroscopy in the gas phase to TryptoCORM, a known photoCORM that has been shown to destroy Escherichia coli upon visible-light activation. Our experiments allow us to map TryptoCORM's photochemistry across a wide wavelength range by using novel laser-interfaced mass spectrometry (LIMS). LIMS…

  • Recursive patterns in online echo chambers. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2019 12 27; 9(1):20118.Brugnoli E, Cinelli M, … Scala A
  • Despite their entertainment oriented purpose, social media changed the way users access information, debate, and form their opinions. Recent studies, indeed, showed that users online tend to promote their favored narratives and thus to form polarized groups around a common system of beliefs. Confirmation bias helps to account for users' decisions about whether to spread content, thus creating inf…
  • A prospective compound screening contest identified broader inhibitors for Sirtuin 1. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2019 12 20; 9(1):19585.Chiba S, Ohue M, … Sekijima M
  • Potential inhibitors of a target biomolecule, NAD-dependent deacetylase Sirtuin 1, were identified by a contest-based approach, in which participants were asked to propose a prioritized list of 400 compounds from a designated compound library containing 2.5 million compounds using in silico methods and scoring.

  • LYAR potentiates rRNA synthesis by recruiting BRD2/4 and the MYST-type acetyltransferase KAT7 to rDNA. [Journal Article]
    Nucleic Acids Res. 2019 11 04; 47(19):10357-10372.Izumikawa K, Ishikawa H, … Takahashi N
  • Activation of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) synthesis is pivotal during cell growth and proliferation, but its aberrant upregulation may promote tumorigenesis. Here, we demonstrate that the candidate oncoprotein, LYAR, enhances ribosomal DNA (rDNA) transcription. Our data reveal that LYAR binds the histone-associated protein BRD2 without involvement of acetyl-lysine-binding bromodomains and recruits BRD2 …
