Comparison of non-heme liver iron and iron metabolism protein levels in superoxide dismutase 1 knock-out mice versus superoxide dismutase 1 wild-type mice
Iron is an important micronutrient that is necessary for multiple cellular functions. However, iron levels must be tightly regulated in order to prevent iron-deficiency and iron-toxicity. There are many proteins involved ...
Importance of CCW12 gene expression in zinc deficient Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Pathogenic fungi have a major impact on human health. There is a lack of good therapies and some pathogenic fungi are resistant to the existing treatments. One possible target for treatment is covalently bonded cell wall ...
The Biochemical Characterization of a Translational Repressor
Iron regulatory proteins (IRP) are crucial post-transcriptional regulators of iron metabolism. They influence the synthesis of proteins involved in iron uptake, storage and use by binding to their mRNAs. IRP1 stands out ...
