A standard nomenclature for gene designation in the Rosaceae
The plant family Rosaceae is comprised of a highly diverse group of plants, with a wide range of ornamental and agricultural uses throughout the world. Comparative genomic analyses between rosaceous species are increasingly ...
Cell cycle genes are activated earlier than respiratory genes during release of grapevine buds from endodormancy
(Taylor & Francis, 2017)
Single-bud cuttings of Vitis vinifera L exposed to forced growing conditions were used to investigate the involvement of phytohormones, abscisic acid (ABA), auxin (Aux) and cytokinin (CK) in the release of buds from the ...
Molecular characterization of the niaD and pyrG genes from Penicillium camemberti, and their use as transformation markers
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2009)
Genetic manipulation of the filamentous fungus Penicillium camemberti has been limited by a lack of suitable genetics tools for this fungus. In particular, there is no available homologous transformation system. In this ...
Characterization of a rotavirus rearranged gene 11 by gene reassortment
The effect of replacement of gene 11 of rotavirus SA-11 by a gene carrying a head to tail duplication obtained from a swine rotavirus strain was studied. The swine rotavirus strain with a duplicated gene (CC86) exhibits ...
The relation between hairpin formation by mitochondrial WANCY tRNAs and the occurrence of the light strand replication origin in Lepidosauria
Mitochondrial light strand DNA replication is initiated at light strand replication origins (OLs), short stem-loop hairpins formed by the heavy strand DNA. OL-like secondary structures are also formed by heavy strand DNA ...
Subcellular localization of PAL genes in Citrus limon
Plant defense against pathogens involves mechanisms that include the expression of several genes, which could be located in any of the three compartments that contain genomes in plant cells: nuclei, mitochondria and ...
Analysis of polymorphisms in the mitochondrial ND5 gene in Pantaneira and Creole breeds of sheep.
(African Journal of Biotechnology v. 14, n. 5, pp. 438-441, 2015, 2015)
Polymorphisms in mitochondrial genes encoding complex i subunits are maternal factors of voluntary alcohol consumption in the rat
OBJECTIVE: Alcohol is detoxified in the liver by oxidizing enzymes that require nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) such that, in the rat, the availability of NAD contributes to control voluntary ethanol intake. The ...
A gene family encoding heterogeneous histone H1 proteins in Trypanosoma cruzi
A gene family encoding a set of histone H1 proteins in Trypanosoma cruzi is described. The sequence of 3 genomic and 4 cDNA clones revealed the presence of several motifs characteristic of histone H1 although heterogeneity ...
pic gene of enteroaggregative Escherichia coli and its association with diarrhea in Peruvian children
(Taylor & Francis, 2016)
Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) causes acute and persistent diarrhea among children, HIV-infected patients, and travelers to developing countries. We have searched for 18 genes-encoding virulence factors associated ...
