Isolation and characterisation of the mating-type (MAT) locus from Rhynchosporium secalis
The mating-type (MAT) genes from Rhynchosporium secalis were isolated using PCR-based methods. Characterisation of the MAT idiomorphs suggests that R. secalis is closely related to the discomycetes Pyrenopeziza brassicae ...
Insecticide resistance: from science to practice.
Interactions between bacteria and plant-parasitic nematodes : now and then
Based on genome-to-genome analyses of gene sequences obtained from plant-parasitic, root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.), it seems likely that certain genes have been derived from bacteria by horizontal gene transfer. ...
CCR2: Characterization of the antagonist binding site from a combined receptor modeling/mutagenesis approach
We describe here a classical molecular modeling exercise that was carried out to provide a basis for the design of novel antagonist ligands of the CCR2 receptor. Using a theoretical model of the CCR2 receptor, docking ...
Whole-Genome Analysis of 60 G Protein-Coupled Receptors in Caenorhabditis elegans by Gene Knockout with RNAi
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest family of genes in animal genomes and represent more than 2% of genes in humans and C. elegans. These evolutionarily conserved seven-transmembrane proteins transduce a ...
Antioxidant and free radical scavenging activity of isoflavone metabolites
1. Soy isoflavones have been extensively studied because of their possible health-promoting effects. Genistein and daidzein, the major isoflavone aglycones, have received most attention; however, they undergo extensive ...
The disintegrin-like metalloproteinase ADAM 10 is involved in coinstitutive cleavage of CX3CL1 (fractalkine) and regulates CX3CL1-mediated cell-cell adhesion
The CX3C chemokine fractalkine (CX3CL1) exists as a membrane-expressed protein promoting cell-cell adhesion and as a soluble molecule inducing chemotaxis. Transmembrane CX3CL1 is converted into its soluble form by defined ...
An investigation into alleged 'hauntings'
In cases of alleged hauntings, a large number of seemingly trustworthy witnesses consistently report experiencing unusual phenomena (e.g. apparitions, sudden changes in temperature, a strong sense of presence) in certain ...
