These "molecular ... are really linked to one another." The ribosome has two subunits, each made up of RNA and ...

DNA Software, Inc. Awarded $2.5 M in NIH Funding to Develop Pioneering Nucleic Acid-based Technologies

... ribosomes of many pathogenic bacteria are still unknown. Thus, the ribosome represents an important target for structural prediction and future drug ... structure accuracy. With this NIH project, DNA Software is modeling ribosome structure and function and aims to predict the 3D structures of complete ...

PTC Therapeutics Receives $2.6 Million in Government Grants

... Nonsense mutations create a premature stop signal in the mRNA causing the ribosome to terminate translation before a full-length protein is generated. This ... to be truncated and non-functioning. Ataluren is designed to allow the ribosome to continue translation of the mRNA, overriding the premature stop signal ...

Researchers outline structure of largest nonvirus particle ever crystallized

... vaults offer a human-friendly nanocontainer, like a molecular-level C-5A transport jet, with a cargo hold large enough to encompass a whole ribosome with its hundreds of proteins and nucleic acids, or enough drugs to control a cell," Eisenberg said. The construction of the draft atomic model ...

Use of the DCode System to Detect the Food-Borne Bacterial Pathogen Listeria monocytogenes

... more than one gene coding for 16S rRNA to increase the rate of ribosome production in the cell. Normally the genes have the same sequence ... have different sequences that, when transcribed, yield a ribosome with a slightly altered structure. ...

New Mammalian Expression Vectors Employ Stable, High-Level Fluorescence Humanized Renilla GFP Reporter

... stop codons are followed by the coding region of an internal ribosome entry site (IRES) for reentry of the ribosome and protein production of the downstream hrGFP gene. In these ...

Determination of the Chloramphenicol residues in milk and milk products using LC/MS/MS

... medicine because of its broad range of activity and its low cost. Chloramphenicol is primarily bacteriostatic. CAP binds to the 50S subunit of the ribosome and inhibits bacterial protein synthesis. It has a wide spectrum of activity against gram-positive and gram-negative cocci and bacilli, including ...

TransMessenger Transfection Reagent Handbook

... a relevant DNA template or added post-transcriptionally using a poly-A polymerase. An IRES is a specific sequence which helps the ribosome to access the mRNA, thereby enhancing translation. However in some cell types, RNA species containing an IRES will not be ...

Mammalian and Bacterial Expression in One Vector

... distinguishing feature of the pDual vector is the tandemly arranged bacterial Shine-Dalgarno 1 and mammalian Kozak 2 consensus sequence. Each ribosome binding site is positioned at its optimal distance from the initiation codon of the target gene, which ensures efficient translation of mRNA ...

High-Titer Retroviral Vectors for Gene Delivery

... (ORF) for the neomycin-resistance (neo) gene is positioned downstream of the MCS, using the encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) internal ribosome entry site (IRES). Expression of neo from the second ORF in a dicistronic message is advantageous in that G418-selection (i.e., selection ...

Versatile Vectors for Ponasterone A- Inducible Control of Gene Expression in Mammalian Cells

... both receptors are expressed from a single mRNA transcribed from the CMV promoter. We accomplished this by placing the internal ribosome entry site (IRES) from encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) upstream of the second (RXR) open reading frame (ORF), which ...
