Biochem/physiol Actions

Golgicide A is a potent, highly specific, reversible inhibitor of the cis-Golgi ArfGEF GBF1. Arf proteins are members of the Ras superfamily of small guanosine triphosphatases (GTPases) that mediate vesicular transport. Golgicide A binds within an interfacial cleft formed between Arf1 and the GBF1 Sec7 domain. Golgicide A is a unique and powerful tool for further elucidating the mechanisms underlying assembly and transport within the Golgi, comparable to the use of dynasore for studying the dynamics of dynamin-mediated clathrin coat formation.

The ubiquity of nonparental hybrid phenotypes, such as hybrid vigor and hybrid inferiority, has interested biologists for over a century and is of considerable agricultural importance. Although examples of both phenomena have been subject to intense investigation, no general model...

Cyclic nucleotides, including cyclic AMP (cAMP), cyclic GMP (cGMP) and cyclic ADP-ribose, have been extensively studied as second messengers of intracellular events initiated by activation of GPCRs. cAMP modifies cell function in all eukaryotic cells, principally through the activation of cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), but also through cAMP-gated ion channels and guanine nucleotide exchange factors directly activated by cAMP.
