26923072 DLC1 binding to nNOS-calmodulin complex does not affect the electron transport from the reductase to the oxygenase domain.
26652654 NMR-derived secondary chemical shifts and relaxation properties show that the Chica LC8 binding domain is essentially disordered with a dynamically restricted segment in one linker between motifs.
26226419 Studies indicate that dynein light chain LC8 has been termed an intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) dimerization 'hub' protein.
26157129 DLC1 binding motif in L is involved in cytoskeleton localization and reorganization, primary transcription regulation by DLC1, and regulation of cellular DLC1 gene expression.
25741013 Authors demonstrate that the interaction between ebola virus VP35 and dynein LC8 is direct and of high affinity and that binding stabilizes the VP35 N-terminal oligomerization domain and enhances viral RNA synthesis.
25568209 Overall, this study demonstrates the novel interaction between HIV-1 integrase and cellular DYNLL1 proteins and suggests the requirement of this virus-cell interaction for proper uncoating and efficient reverse transcription of HIV-1.
25568209 Knockdown of DYNLL1 by shRNA leads to reduced levels of particulate CA in HIV-1-infected cells, suggesting that DYNLL1 plays an important role in CA uncoating
25568209 Knockdown of dynein light chain 1 (DYNLL1) by shRNA inhibits HIV-1 replication in C8166T cells
25272277 The dynein light intermediate chain has a Ras-like fold with insertions that distinguish it from Ras and other previously described G proteins.
23589491 Dynein forms distinct complexes requiring specific recruiters and activators to promote orderly progression through mitosis.
