    • Adventures in the enormous: a 1.8 million clone BAC library for the 21.7 Gb genome of loblolly pine. 

      Magbanua, Zenaida V.; Ozkan, Seval; Bartlett, Benjamin D.; Chouvarine, Philippe; Saski, Christopher A.; Liston, Aaron; Cronn, Richard C.; Nelson, C. Dana; Peterson, Daniel G. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Plant and Soil SciencesCollege of Agriculture and Life SciencesMississippi Genome Exploration Laboratory, 1/21/2011)
      Loblolly pine (LP; Pinus taeda L.) is the most economically important tree in the U.S. and a cornerstone species in southeastern forests. However, genomics research on LP and other conifers has lagged behind studies on ...
    • Bcl-2 promoter sequence G-quadruplex interactions with three planar and non-planar cationic porphyrins: TMPyP4, TMPyP3, and TMPyP2. 

      Le, Vu H.; Nagesh, Narayana; Lewis, Edwin A. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of ChemistryCollege of Arts and Sciences, 8/20/2013)
      The interactions of three related cationic porphyrins, TMPyP4, TMPyP3 and TMPyP2, with a WT 39-mer Bcl-2 promoter sequence G-quadruplex were studied using Circular Dichroism, ESI mass spectrometry, Isothermal Titration ...
    • Identification of maize genes associated with host plant resistance or susceptibility to Aspergillus flavus infection and aflatoxin accumulation. 

      Kelley, Rowena Y.; Williams, W. Paul; Mylroie, J. Erik; Boykin, Deborah L.; Harper, Jonathan W.; Windham, Gary L.; Ankala, Arunkanth; Shan, Xueyan (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant PathologyDepartment of Computer Sciences and EngineeringCollege of Agriculture and Life SciencesJames Worth Bagley College of EngineeringCorn Host Plant Resistance Research UnitAgricultural Research Service, 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 ...
    • Quantitative field testing Heterodera glycines from metagenomic DNA samples isolated directly from soil under agronomic production. 

      Li, Yan; Lawrence, Gary W.; Lu, Shien; Balbalian, Clarissa; Klink, Vincent P. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant PathologyDepartment of Biological SciencesCollege of Agriculture and Life SciencesCollege of Arts and Sciences, 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 ...
    • Quantitative field testing Rotylenchulus reniformis DNA from metagenomic samples isolated directly from soil. 

      Showmaker, Kurt; Lawrence, Gary W.; Lu, Shien; Balbalian, Clarissa; Klink, Vincent P. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant PathologyDepartment of Biological SciencesCollege of Agriculture and Life SciencesCollege of Arts and SciencesBost Extension Center, 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 ...
    • RNA-seq based transcriptional map of bovine respiratory disease pathogen "Histophilus somni 2336". 

      Kumar, Ranjit; Lawrence, Mark L.; Watt, James; Cooksey, Amanda M.; Burgess, Shane C.; Nanduri, Bindu (Public Library of ScienceCollege of Veterinary Medicine, 1/20/2012)
      Genome structural annotation, i.e., identification and demarcation of the boundaries for all the functional elements in a genome (e.g., genes, non-coding RNAs, proteins and regulatory elements), is a prerequisite for systems ...
    • The site specific demethylation in the 5'-regulatory area of NMDA receptor 2B subunit gene associated with CIE-induced up-regulation of transcription. 

      Qiang, Mei; Denny, Ashley; Chen, Jiguo; Ticku, Maharaj K.; Yan, Bo; Henderson, George (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesCollege of Arts and Sciences, 1/20/2010)
      BACKGROUND: The NMDA receptor represents a particularly important site of ethanol action in the CNS. We recently reported that NMDA receptor 2B (NR2B) gene expression was persistently up-regulated following chronic ...
