Identification of maize genes associated with host plant resistance or susceptibility to Aspergillus flavus infection and aflatoxin accumulation.
(Public Library of Science, 5/14/2012)
BACKGROUND: Aspergillus flavus infection and aflatoxin contamination of maize pose negative impacts in agriculture and health. Commercial maize hybrids are generally susceptible to this fungus. Significant levels of host ...
Comparative genome analyses reveal distinct structure in the saltwater crocodile MHC.
(Public Library of Science, 12/11/2014)
The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is a dynamic genome region with an essential role in the adaptive immunity of vertebrates, especially antigen presentation. The MHC is generally divided into subregions (classes ...
Comparison of four ChIP-Seq analytical algorithms using rice endosperm H3K27 trimethylation profiling data.
(Public Library of Science, 9/30/2011)
Chromatin immunoprecipitation coupled with high throughput DNA Sequencing (ChIP-Seq) has emerged as a powerful tool for genome wide profiling of the binding sites of proteins associated with DNA such as histones and ...
Magnitude of the freshwater turtle exports from the US: long term trends and early effects of newly implemented harvest management regimes.
(Public Library of Science, 1/27/2014)
Unregulated commercial harvest remains a major threat for turtles across the globe. Due to continuing demand from Asian markets, a significant number of turtles are exported from the United States of America (US). Beginning ...
Quantitative field testing Heterodera glycines from metagenomic DNA samples isolated directly from soil under agronomic production.
(Public Library of Science, 2/24/2014)
A quantitative PCR procedure targeting the Heterodera glycines ortholog of the Caenorhabditis elegans uncoordinated-78 gene was developed. The procedure estimated the quantity of H. glycines from metagenomic DNA samples ...
Global analysis of lysine acetylation suggests the involvement of protein acetylation in diverse biological processes in rice (Oryza sativa).
(Public Library of Science, 2/20/2014)
Lysine acetylation is a reversible, dynamic protein modification regulated by lysine acetyltransferases and deacetylases. Recent advances in high-throughput proteomics have greatly contributed to the success of global ...
Transcriptome-Based Differentiation of Closely-Related Miscanthus Lines

Proteome and membrane fatty acid analyses on Oligotropha carboxidovorans OM5 grown under chemolithoautotrophic and heterotrophic conditions.
(Public Library of Science, 2/28/2011)
Oligotropha carboxidovorans OM5 T. (DSM 1227, ATCC 49405) is a chemolithoautotrophic bacterium able to utilize CO and H(2) to derive energy for fixation of CO(2). Thus, it is capable of growth using syngas, which is a ...
Population and demographic structure of Ixodes scapularis Say in the eastern United States.
(Public Library of Science, 7/15/2014)
INTRODUCTION: The most significant vector of tick-borne pathogens in the United States is Ixodes scapularis Say (the blacklegged tick). Previous studies have identified significant genetic, behavioral and morphological ...
Quantitative field testing Rotylenchulus reniformis DNA from metagenomic samples isolated directly from soil.
(Public Library of Science, 12/16/2011)
A quantitative PCR procedure targeting the ?-tubulin gene determined the number of Rotylenchulus reniformis Linford & Oliveira 1940 in metagenomic DNA samples isolated from soil. Of note, this outcome was in the presence ...
