Impact of single amino acid mutations in the rhomboid protease Pcp1p on Pcp1p catalytic activity, cellular respiration, mitochondrial morphology, and mitochondrial DNA maintenance
Pcp1p is a rhomboid protease in the inner mitochondrial membrane of S. cerevisiae that processes Mgm1p, a protein required for mitochondrial fusion. In this study, five previously generated pcp1 mutant strains were analyzed ...
Bt Cotton Meta-analysis Data
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 ...
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 ...
Adventures in the enormous: a 1.8 million clone BAC library for the 21.7 Gb genome of loblolly pine.
(Public Library of Science, 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 ...
Cross-Ontology multi-level association rule mining in the Gene Ontology.
(Public Library of Science, 10/12/2012)
The Gene Ontology (GO) has become the internationally accepted standard for representing function, process, and location aspects of gene products. The wealth of GO annotation data provides a valuable source of implicit ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
