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 ...
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 ...

(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 ...
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 ...
Methylseleninic acid sensitizes Notch3-activated OVCA429 ovarian cancer cells to carboplatin.
(Public Library of Science, 7/10/2014)
Ovarian cancer, the deadliest of gynecologic cancers, is usually not diagnosed until advanced stages. Although carboplatin has been popular for treating ovarian cancer for decades, patients eventually develop resistance ...
