Identification of Escherichia coli ygaQ and rpmG as novel mitomycin C resistance factors implicated in DNA repair (2015)
Journal Article
Bolt, E. L., Jenkins, T., Russo, V. M., Ahmed, S., Cavey, J., & Cass, S. (2015). Identification of Escherichia coli ygaQ and rpmG as novel mitomycin C resistance factors implicated in DNA repair. Bioscience Reports, doi:10.1042/BSR20150249. ISSN 0144-8463

Using the ASKA (A Complete Set of E. coli K-12 ORF Archive) library for genome-wide screening of E. coli proteins we identified that expression of ygaQ and rpmG promotemitomycin C resistance (MMCR). YgaQ mediated MMCR was independent of homolog... Read More

Defective recognition of LC3B by mutant SQSTM1/p62 implicates impairment of autophagy as a pathogenic mechanism in ALS-FTLD
Journal Article
Goode, A., Butler, K., Long, J., Cavey, J., Scott, D., Shaw, B., …Layfield, R. (2016). Defective recognition of LC3B by mutant SQSTM1/p62 implicates impairment of autophagy as a pathogenic mechanism in ALS-FTLD. Autophagy, ISSN 1554-8627

Growing evidence implicates impairment of autophagy as a candidate pathogenic mechanism in the spectrum of neurodegenerative disorders which includes amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (ALS-FTLD). SQSTM1, which encode... Read More
