RGS (regulator of G-protein signalling) proteins stimulate the intrinsic GTPase activity of the a subunits of heterotrimeric G-proteins, and thereby negatively regulate G-protein-coupled receptor signalling. RGS14 has been shown previously to stimulate the GTPase activities of Ga(o) and Ga(i) subunits...

The properties and sources of all known class-I, class-II and class-III restriction endonucleases (ENases) and DNA modification methyltransferases (MTases) are listed and newly subclassified according to their sequence specificity. In addition, the enzymes are distinguished in a novel manner according...

The role of certain amino acids in the interactions of ligands with their cognate nuclear receptors is usually achieved by the resolution of the crystal structure of the receptor complexed with the ligand. As a complementary functional approach, site-directed mutagenesis...

Current next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms adopt two types of sequencing mechanisms: by synthesis or by ligation. The former is employed by 454 and Solexa systems, while the latter by SOLiD system. Although the pros and cons for each sequencing mechanism...
