Purification and characterization of an anaerobically induced alanine aminotransferase from barley rootsDownload
Alanine aminotransferase (AlaAT, EC 188.8.131.52) is an enzyme that is induced under anaerobic conditions in cereal roots. In barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) roots, there are a number of isoforms of AlaAT. We have identified the anaerobically induced isoform and have purified it to homogeneity. The...
Differential exudation of polypeptides by roots of aluminum-resistant and aluminum-sensitive cultivars of Triticum aestivum L. in response to aluminum stressDownload
Cultivars of Triticum aestivum differing in resistance to Al were grown under aseptic conditions in the presence and absence of Al and polypeptides present in root exudates were collected, concentrated, and analyzed by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Upon exposure to...
Ectopic expression of human and feline CD9 in a Human B cell line confers ß1 integrin-dependent motility on fibronectin and laminin substrates and enhanced tyrosine phosphorylationDownload
Few molecules have been shown to confer cell motility. Although the motility-arresting properties of anti-CD9 monoclonal antibody (mAb) suggest the transmembrane 4 superfamily (TM4SF) member CD9 can induce a motorgenic signal, gene transfection studies have failed to confirm this hypothesis. We...
After hormonal ablation, 90% of the secretory epithelial cells of the prostate undergo apoptosis, and the remaining cells are reorganized as the tissue is remodeled. Using differential display RT-PCR of total RNA extracted from the rat ventral prostate before and 4 days after castration, we have...
The ability to modify RNA secondary structure is crucial for numerous cellular processes. We have characterized two RNA helicase genes, crhB and crhC, which are differentially expressed in the cyanobacterium Anabaena sp. strain PCC 7120. crhC transcription is limited specifically to cold shock...
Homology in comparative, molecular, and evolutionary developmental biology: The radiation of a conceptDownload
The present paper analyzes the use and understanding of the homology concept across different biological disciplines. It is argued that in its history, the homology concept underwent a sort of adaptive radiation. Once it migrated from comparative anatomy into new biological fields, the homology...
Crystallization and preliminary diffraction studies of TraF, a component of the Escherichia coli type IV secretory systemDownload
TraF, a component of the Escherichia coli type IV secretory system, has been crystallized and preliminary X-ray diffraction data have been collected. TraF is a 26 kDa protein encoded by the E. coli F plasmid and is required for conjugative plasmid transfer and the formation of sex pili. The...
