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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
