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 ...
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 ...
