An NIH Special Interest Group.

Date:         Tue, 29 Jun 2004 14:00:00 -0400
From: Robert Weisberg 
Subject:      Lambda Lunch Update

Lambda Lunch Update, 6/29/04:


7/6, Bldg 6B, Rm 4B429, 4:00 PM:  A.J. Carpousis (Toulouse) "RhlB, an
Escherichia coli DEAD-box protein, facilitates mRNA degradation in vivo"
(Bob Weisberg)

7/8*:  Brian Paul (Wisconsin) "DksA: A Critical Component of rRNA Promoter
Regulation" (Sankar Adhya)
google search for 'DksA "Brian Paul"'
Brian Paul, who is studying with Dr. Richard Gourse, has been awarded the 2003 William H. Peterson Predoctoral Fellowship in Bacteriology. Brian entered the PhD program after spending four years at the National Cancer Institute in the laboratory of Dr. Sankar Adhya. In the Gourse lab, he is studying the effect of the DksA protein in regulation of ribosomal RNA expression in Escherichia coli. Brian has purified an active form of DksA and has evidence that the protein works directly on RNAP-rRNA promoter complexes in vitro. He is also studying the effect of dksA mutants in vivo.
7/15*: Yeong-Jae Seok (Seoul National University) "New regulations involving glucose-specific enzyme II of the Escherichia coli PTS" (Alan Peterkofsky) 7/22*: Review of Microbial Stress Conference 7/29*: Harvey Rubin (Univ. Penn.) "Starting to understand the molecular mechanism of the stringent response in Mycobacterium tuberculosis" (Mike Cashel) 8/19*: David Grainger (Bob Martin) *Regular lambda lunch at 11:00 AM in Bldg 37, Rm 6107/6041.
