Morbillivirus and Pilot Whale Deaths, Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
Sequence analysis of a 426-bp conserved fragment of the morbillivirus phosphoprotein gene indicates that the virus is more closely related to dolphin morbillvirus than to pilot whale morBillivirus.
Noxiustoxin, a short-chain toxin from the Mexican scorpion Centruroides noxius, induces transmitter release by blocking K+ permeability
TLDR
It is shown that NTX increases 3H-GABA release from perfused mouse brain synaptosomes and suggests that the releasing effect of NTX is mediated by a decrease in K+ permeability, which strongly suggests that external Ca2+ is needed only in order to couple this stimulus with the release process.
KINETICS OF BRAIN GLUTAMATE DECARBOXYLASE. INTERACTIONS WITH GLUTAMATE, PYRIDOXAL 5‐PHOSPHATE AND GLUTAMATE‐PYRIDOXAL 5‐PHOSPHATE SCHIFF BASE 1
TLDR
Computer simulations of this model reproduced all the observed features of the enzyme behavior and showed that the free pyridoxal phosphate‐dependent activity can be abolished when either all substrate or all cofactor are in the form of Schiff base.
Genetic assessment, illegal trafficking and management of the Mediterranean spur-thighed tortoise in Southern Spain and Northern Africa
TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that Spanish populations were founded from North Africa, the consequence of multiple introductions or exchanges in genetic material as a result of trans-oceanic dispersal, and provide insight into the local movement and trade of individuals that has occurred around the Mediterranean basin.
Synthetic peptides corresponding to the sequence of noxiustoxin indicate that the active site of this K+ channel blocker is located on its amino-terminal portion
TLDR
Results indicate that the toxic active site of Noxiustoxin is possibly located in or near the N-terminal amino acid portion of the molecule.
