Aestivation: Molecular and Physiological Aspects

Quite a few animal species reside in environments characterised by means of a seasonal relief within the availability of water, which regularly yet now not continuously happens while temperatures are maximum. for lots of such animals, survival in the course of the hardest season calls for spending lengthy sessions of time in a slightly inactive country often called aestivation.

Biology of Inorganic Nitrogen and Sulfur

Nitrogen and sulfur compounds are always synthetized, degraded and switched over into other kinds in nature. there are lots of similarities within the precept difficulties and simple mechanisms of the biology of inorganic nitrogen and sulfur. Many information are usually not but understood and for that reason are the topic of lively research across the world.

Chen et ai. (1993) have reported that there is a casein kinase II phosphorylation site proximal to the dileucine motif of MPR 300 (Ser 156; at position 2492) that is part of the sorting signal. , 1990). It was proposed that phosphorylation of both sites occurs in or shortly after the receptor exits the TGN (Meresse and Hoflack, 1993). , 1993). These data suggest that phosphorylation of the MPR 300 cytoplasmic domain is an early event, facilitating the restricted localization of AP-l adaptor molecules and the proper interaction with components required for efficient lysosomal enzyme sorting (see Section 5).

INTRODUCTION Lysosomes are the major intracellular site for the degradation of a variety of macromolecules, including proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, and lipids, that are internalized from the extracellular space by endocytosis, delivered by fusion with phagosomes, or derived from the biosynthetic pathway.
