Biochem/physiol Actions

Myristic acid is commonly added via a covalent linkage to the N-terminal glycine of many eukaryotic and viral proteins, a process called myristoylation. Myristoylation enables proteins to bind to cell membranes and facilitates protein-protein interactions. Myristolyation of proteins affect many cellular functions and thus has implications in health and disease .
Myristic acid is a straight-chain 14-carbon fatty acid. Diets rich in myristic acid, along with lauric and palmitic acids, are associated with increased serum levels of low densisity lipoprotein cholesterol.

Hi-C and chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) have been combined to identify long-range chromatin interactions genome-wide at reduced cost and enhanced resolution, but extracting information from the resulting datasets has been challenging. Here we describe a computational method, MAPS, Model-based Analysis of

Xylella fastidiosa, like related Xanthomonas species, employs an Rpf cell-cell communication system consisting of a diffusible signal factor (DSF) synthase, RpfF, and a DSF sensor, RpfC, to coordinate expression of virulence genes. While phenotypes of a ΔrpfF strain in Xanthomonas

The marine bacterium Vibrio fischeri regulates its bioluminescence through a quorum sensing mechanism: the bacterium releases diffusible small molecules (autoinducers) that accumulate in the environment as the population density increases. This accumulation of autoinducer (AI) eventually activates transcriptional regulators for

Pro-inflammatory cytokines secreted by adipose tissue macrophages (ATMs) contribute to chronic low-grade inflammation and obesity-induced insulin resistance. Recent studies have shown that adipose tissue hypoxia promotes an inflammatory phenotype in ATMs. However, our understanding of how hypoxia modulates the response
