Phosphorylation of Pak1 by the p35/Cdk5 Kinase Affects Neuronal Morphology
The small GTPase Rac and its effectors, the Pak1 and p35/Cdk5 kinases, have been assigned important roles in regulating cytoskeletal dynamics in neurons. Our previous work revealed that the neuronal p35/Cdk5 kinase associates ...
Dramatic developmental changes in larval knockdown response enhance genetic sexing based on DDT resistance in Anopheles stephensi (Diptera: Culicidae)
Genetic sexing systems based on a conditional lethal require good discrimination between the different phenotypes. DDT resistance in the early instars of Anopheles stephensi Liston is not a good candidate when based on ...
Food, Social Policy and the Environment : Towards a New Model
Food policy is high on the public policy agenda, but still suffers from a lack of overview and integration. The paper reviews examples of policy limitations where tighter and more explicit links could usefully be made ...
Interactions between transgenic plants, the diamondback moth and natural enemies
(The Regional Institute Ltd, NSW, Australia, 2001-11-26)
From hospital admission to discharge : An exploratory study to evaluate seamless care
Aim. To evaluate the effect of pharmaceutical care from admission, through a hospital stay and following discharge. Design. The study design was descriptive, using qualitative methods to compare intensive pharmaceutical ...
Mapping the energy surface of transmembrane helix-helix interactions
Transmembrane helices are no longer believed to be just hydrophobic segments that exist solely to anchor proteins to a lipid bilayer, but rather they appear to have the capacity to specify function and structure. Specific ...
Immunological quantification of the nematode parasitic bacterium Pasteuria penetrans in soil
Currently, the abundance of Pasteuria penetrans in soils, an unculturable bacterial parasite of root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp,). is estimated by the percentage of nematode juveniles infected with bacteria and the ...
Site-specific examination of secondary structure and orientation determination in membrane proteins: The peptidic C-13=O-18 group as a novel infrared probe
Detailed site-specific information can be exceptionally useful in structural studies of macromolecules in general and proteins in particular. Stich information is usually obtained from spectroscopic studies using a label/probe ...
The interaction between the gelatin-binding domain of fibronectin and the attachment of Pasteuria penetrans endospores to nematode cuticle
Pasteuria Penetrans is a Gram-positive endospore-producing bacterium that is a parasite of root-knot nematodes. Attachment of endospores to the cuticle of the nematode is the first stage in the infection process. Western ...
