Systematic screens for human disease genes, from yeast to human and back

, : Systematic screens for human disease genes, from yeast to human and back. Molecular Biosystems 4(1): 18-29

Systematic screens for human disease genes have emerged in recent years, due to the wealth of information provided by genome sequences and large scale datasets. Here we review how integration of genomic data in yeast and human is helping to elucidate the genetic basis of mitochondrial diseases. The identification of nearly all yeast mitochondrial proteins and many of their functional interactions provides insight into the role of mitochondria in cellular processes. This information enables prioritization of the candidate genes underlying mitochondrial disorders. In an iterative fashion, the link between predicted human candidate genes and their disease phenotypes can be experimentally tested back in yeast.

Binary and conventional 2D QSAR have been derived for a set of carbonic anhydrase II (CA II) inhibitors. An overall predictive accuracy of 94% was obtained by binary QSAR and of 84% by 2D QSAR model. For both models, preferred molecular descriptor...

We report a solid-state (25)Mg NMR spectroscopic study of two magnesium-containing organic compounds: monopyridinated aqua(magnesium) phthalocyanine (MgPc.H(2)O.Py) and chlorophyll a (Chla). Each of these compounds contains a Mg(II) ion coordinati...

Effect of sodium salicylate (SA) and its analogues on lysosomal cysteine proteinases, cathepsins B and H, was investigated. Using a sensitive fluorometric assay, SA was shown to activate cathepsin B but not cathepsin H in the presence of cysteine....
