Resumen

La PPCDC es un enzima esencial, clave en la síntesis del Coenzima A. Hemos demostrado que en S. cerevisiae, en contra de lo comúnmente establecido –una flavoproteína homotrimérica-, este enzima existe como un heterotrímero. Uno de los componentes es necesariamente Ykl088w, asociado a combinaciones de Hal3 y/o Vhs3. Sorprendentemente, estas dos últimas proteínas eran conocidas como subunidades reguladoras de una proteína fosfatasa, por lo que este trabajo establece su carácter de proteínas multifuncionales o moonlighting.

REFERENCIA DEL GRUPO Y/O INVESTIGADOR
El Grupo de Biología Molecular de Levaduras se estableció en la UAB a principios de 1990. Su investigación se ha centrado principalmente en el estudio de la respuesta a estrés mediante procesos de fosfo-desfosforilación, con especial énfasis en las Ser/Thr proteína fosfatasas, habiendo descubierto y caracterizado numerosas fosfatasas de diversos organismos. Su modelo de estudio preferente es la levadura Saccharomyces cerevisiae, cuyo genoma contribuyeron a secuenciar por completo.

Inactivation of Capicua in adult mice causes T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma

01-12-2017

CIC (also known as Capicua) is a transcriptional repressor negatively regulated by RAS/MAPK signaling. Whereas the functions of Cic have been well characterized in Drosophila, little is known about its...

Physical proximity of chromatin to nuclear pores prevents harmful R loop accumulation contributing to maintain genome stability

01-11-2017

During transcription, the mRNA may hybridize with DNA, forming an R loop, which can be physiological or pathological, constituting in this case a source of genomic instability. To understand the...

CTCF orchestrates the germinal centre transcriptional program and prevents premature plasma cell differentiation

01-09-2017

In germinal centres (GC) mature B cells undergo intense proliferation and immunoglobulin gene modification before they differentiate into memory B cells or long-lived plasma cells (PC). GC B-cell-to-PC transition involves...

Catalytic Cycle of the N-Acetylglucosaminidase NagZ from Pseudomonas aeruginosa

01-08-2017

The N-acetylglucosaminidase NagZ of Pseudomonas aeruginosa catalyzes the first cytoplasmic step in recycling of muropeptides, cell-wall-derived natural products. This reaction regulates gene expression for the β-lactam resistance enzyme, β-lactamase. The...

Programmed mitophagy is essential for the glycolytic switch during cell differentiation

01-05-2017

Retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) are the sole projecting neurons of the retina and their axons form the optic nerve. Here, we show that embryogenesis-associated mouse RGC differentiation depends on mitophagy...
