Encapsidation Of Yeast Killer Double-Stranded Ribonucleic Acids: Dependence Of M On L, Keith A. Bostian, Joyce A. Sturgeon, Donald J. Tipper Jul 1980

Encapsidation Of Yeast Killer Double-Stranded Ribonucleic Acids: Dependence Of M On L, Keith A. Bostian, Joyce A. Sturgeon, Donald J. Tipper

Microbiology and Physiological Systems Publications and Presentations

Virus-like particles containing either L or M double-stranded ribonucleic acid (dsRNA) were isolated from a killer toxin-producing strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (K+ R+). At least 95% of M- and 87% of L-dsRNA were recovered in virus-like particle-containing fractions. The major capsid polypeptides (ScV-P1) of both L and M virus-like particles were shown to be identical, and 95% of the cellular ScV-P1 was found in the virus-like particle-containing fractions. Since L-dsRNA encodes ScV-P1, provision of this protein for encapsidation of M-dsRNA defines at least one functional relationship between these dsRNA genomes and associates the L-dsRNA with the killer character. If encapsidation ...


Nonenzymatic Glycosylation Of Erythrocyte Membrane Proteins. Relevance To Diabetes, J A. Miller, Ellen M. Gravallese, H F. Bunn Apr 1980

Nonenzymatic Glycosylation Of Erythrocyte Membrane Proteins. Relevance To Diabetes, J A. Miller, Ellen M. Gravallese, H F. Bunn

Rheumatology Publications and Presentations

Nonenzymatic glycosylation of proteins of the erythrocyte membrane was determined by incubating erythrocyte ghosts with [3H]borohydride. The incorporation of tritium into protein provides a reliable assay of ketoamine linkages. The membrane proteins from 18 patients with diabetes incorporated twice as much radioactivity as membrane proteins from normal erythrocytes. After acid hydrolysis, amino acid analysis showed that the majority of radioactivity was localized to glucosyllysine. Autoradiograms showed that all of the major proteins of the erythrocyte membrane, separated by electrophoresis on sodium dodecyl sulfate gels, contained ketoamine linkages. No protein bands in either normal or diabetic erythrocytes showed significant preferential ...
