1 Poulter, Charles Dale; Davis, Darrell R.15N labeled e. coli tRNAMet, tRNAGlu, tRNATyr, and tRNAPhe. Double resonance and two dimensional NMR of H-N1 units in pseudouridineThe N1 imino units in Escherichia coli tRNAfMet, tRNAGlu, tRNAPhe, and tRNATyr were studied by 1H-15N NMR using three different techniques to suppress signals of protons not attached to 15N.

2 Blumenthal, Donald K.C subunits binding to the protein kinase A RI alpha dimer induce a large conformational change.We present structural data on the RI alpha isoform of the cAMP-dependent protein kinase A that reveal, for the first time, a large scale conformational change within the RI alpha homodimer upon catalytic subunit binding. This result infers that the inhibition of catalytic subunit activity is not the...Protein Kinase; cAMP2004-04-30
3 Hendee, Shonn P.; Faour, Fouad A.; Christensen, Douglas A.; Patrick, Baharah; Durney, Carl H.; Blumenthal, Donald K.Effects of weak extremely low frequency magnetic fields on calcium/calmodulin interactions.Mechanisms by which weak electromagnetic fields may affect biological systems are of current interest because of their potential health effects. Lednev has proposed an ion parametric resonance hypothesis (Lednev, 1991, Bioelectromagnetics, 12:71-75), which predicts that when the ac, frequency of a c...Electromagnetic Fields; Calcium-binding Proteins; Lednev's Theory1996-06

11 Blumenthal, Donald K.; Trewhella, JillConformationally dynamic C helix of the RIalpha subunit of protein kinase A mediates isoform-specific domain reorganization upon C subunit binding.Different isoforms of the full-length protein kinase A (PKA) regulatory subunit homodimer (R2) and the catalytic (C) subunit-bound holoenzyme (R2C2) have very different global structures despite similar molecular weights and domain organization within their primary sequences. To date, it has been th...Protein Isoforms; Global Structures; cAMP2005-10-21
12 Blumenthal, Donald K.Phosphorylation of cardiac troponin by guanosine 3':5'-monophosphate-dependent protein kinase.Homogeneous cGMP-dependent protein kinase catalyzes the rapid incorporation of phosphate, specifically into the inhibitory subunit of purified cardiac troponin with a maximal incorporation of 1 mol of phosphate/mol of troponin. When troponin was incubated in the presence of both cGMP- and cAMP-depen...Protein Kinases1978-01-25
