It was shown that the lack of fungitoxicity of some classes of square planar compounds can be altered by adding substituents that make the potential toxicant non-planar and/or dipolar. Corrections were made of errors in a number of published papers. Calculations were made to approximate the sizes and shapes of the perforations in the fungal wall

Copper(II) biscomplexes of 3-bromo-6-chloro-8- quinolinol and 6-bromo-3-chloro-8-quinolinol were prepared, the long axes ofwhich were 16.8 A and 17.6 A respectively. The long axes of the pores in the walls of the test fungi were determined: A niger (15.0 A), A. oryzae (16.8 A), M verrucaria (17.4 A), T viride (15.0 A). M circinelloides (not determined), and T mentagrophytes (11 .4 A). When the long axis of the copper(II) complex was was shorter or equal to that of the pore, there was fungitoxicity. When the long axis of the complex was longer than ...

Lon protease, also known as protease La, is one of the simplest ATP-dependent proteases that plays vital roles in maintaining cellular functions by selectively eliminating misfolded, damaged and certain short-lived regulatory proteins. Although Lon is a homo-oligomer, each subunit of Lon contains both an ATPase and a protease active site. This relatively simple architecture compared to other hetero-oligomeric ATP-dependent proteases such as the proteasome makes Lon a useful paradigm for studying the mechanism of ATP-dependent proteolysis. In this article, we survey some recent developments in the mechanistic characterization of Lon with an emphasis on the utilization of pre-steady-state enzyme kinetic ...

The replication of damaged DNA is a promutagenic process that can lead to disease development. This report evaluates the dynamics of nucleotide incorporation opposite an abasic site, a commonly formed DNA lesion, by using two fluorescent nucleotide analogues, 2-aminopurine deoxyribose triphosphate (2-APTP) and 5-phenylindole deoxyribose triphosphate (5-PhITP). In both cases, the kinetics of incorporation were compared by using a 32 P-radiolabel extension assay versus a fluorescence-quenching assay. Although 2-APTP is efficiently incorporated opposite a templating nucleobase (thymine), the kinetics for incorporation opposite an abasic site are significantly slower. The lower catalytic efficiency hinders its use as a probe to study ...
