An affinity pull-down approach to identify the plant cyclic nucleotide interactome
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractCyclic nucleotides (CNs) are intracellular second messengers that play an important role in mediating physiological responses to environmental and developmental signals, in species ranging from bacteria to humans. In response to these signals, CNs are synthesized by nucleotidyl cyclases and then act by binding to and altering the activity of downstream target proteins known as cyclic nucleotide-binding proteins (CNBPs). A number of CNBPs have been identified across kingdoms including transcription factors, protein kinases, phosphodiesterases, and channels, all of which harbor conserved CN-binding domains. In plants however, few CNBPs have been identified as homology searches fail to return plant sequences with significant matches to known CNBPs. Recently, affinity pull-down techniques have been successfully used to identify CNBPs in animals and have provided new insights into CN signaling. The application of these techniques to plants has not yet been extensively explored and offers an alternative approach toward the unbiased discovery of novel CNBP candidates in plants. Here, an affinity pull-down technique for the identification of the plant CN interactome is presented. In summary, the method involves an extraction of plant proteins which is incubated with a CN-bait, followed by a series of increasingly stringent elutions that eliminates proteins in a sequential manner according to their affinity to the bait. The eluted and bait-bound proteins are separated by one-dimensional gel electrophoresis, excised, and digested with trypsin after which the resultant peptides are identified by mass spectrometry - techniques that are commonplace in proteomics experiments. The discovery of plant CNBPs promises to provide valuable insight into the mechanism of CN signal transduction in plants. © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2013.

Cyclic hygrothermal aging of aircraft lightning protections: Phenomenological overviewLubineau, Gilles; El Yagoubi, Jalal; Saghir, Shahid; Selvakumaran, Lakshmi; Askari, Abe H. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), 2012-04-23)The recent transition to full composite fuselages is a major breakthrough in aeronautical design. To ensure satisfactory lightning protection, the electrical properties of the primary composite structure need to be improved and a design solution lies on bonding a metallic fishnet to the fuselage. An important issue is the prediction of the aging behavior of this top layer when exposed to severe aging conditions representative of flight environment. Multiple aging mechanisms affect this top layer made of thermoset resin and metallic fishnet with complex geometry and a first modeling strategy is a necessary starting point to better understand its evolution. This paper describes the overall phenomenology and the different mechanisms that can be expected in such a structure.
Cyclic Communication and the Inseparability of MIMO Multi-way Relay ChannelsChaaban, Anas; Sezgin, Aydin (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-10-27)The K-user MIMO multi-way relay channel (Ychannel) consisting of K users with M antennas each and a common relay node with N antennas is studied in this paper. Each user wants to exchange messages with all the other users via the relay. A transmission strategy is proposed for this channel. The proposed strategy is based on two steps: channel diagonalization and cyclic communication. The channel diagonalization is applied by using zero-forcing beam-forming. After channel diagonalization, the channel is decomposed into parallel sub-channels. Cyclic communication is then applied, where signal-space alignment for network-coding is used over each sub-channel. The proposed strategy achieves the optimal DoF region of the channel if N M. To prove this, a new degrees-of-freedom outer bound is derived. As a by-product, we conclude that the MIMO Y-channel is not separable, i.e., independent coding on separate sub-channels is not enough, and one has to code jointly over several sub-channels.
Synthesis and characterization of an iron complex bearing a cyclic tetra-N-heterocyclic carbene ligand: An artifical heme analogue?Anneser, Markus R.; Haslinger, Stefan; Pöthig, Alexander; Cokoja, Mirza; Basset, Jean-Marie; Kühn, Fritz (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015-04-20)An iron(II) complex with a cyclic tetradentate ligand containing four N-heterocyclic carbenes was synthesized and characterized by means of NMR and IR spectroscopies, as well as by single-crystal X-ray structure analysis. The iron center exhibits an octahedral coordination geometry with two acetonitrile ligands in axial positions, showing structural analogies with porphyrine-ligated iron complexes. The acetonitrile ligands can readily be substituted by other ligands, for instance, dimethyl sulfoxide, carbon monoxide, and nitric oxide. Cyclic voltammetry was used to examine the electronic properties of the synthesized compounds. © 2015 American Chemical Society.
