Comparison of SSR and SNP Markers in Estimation of Genetic Diversity and Population Structure of Indian Rice Varieties
Simple sequence repeat (SSR) and Single Nucleotide Polymorphic (SNP), the two most robust markers for identifying rice varieties were compared for assessment of genetic diversity and populationExpand

Eye suppression, a novel function of teashirt, requires Wingless signaling.
teashirt (tsh) encodes a Drosophila zinc-finger protein. Misexpression of tsh has been shown to induce ectopic eye formation in the antenna. We report that tsh can suppress eye development. ThisExpand

Crystal structure of lactoperoxidase at 2.4 A resolution.
Lactoperoxidase (LPO) is a member of the mammalian peroxidase superfamily. It catalyzes the oxidation of thiocyanate and halides. Freshly isolated and purified samples of caprine LPO were saturatedExpand

Bacteriophage tailspike proteins as molecular probes for sensitive and selective bacterial detection.
We report the use of genetically engineered tailspike proteins (TSPs) from the P22 bacteriophage for the sensitive and selective detection of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium. High yields ofExpand

Lactoperoxidase: structural insights into the function,ligand binding and inhibition.
Lactoperoxidase (LPO) is a member of a large group of mammalian heme peroxidases that include myeloperoxidase (MPO), eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) and thyroid peroxidase (TPO). The LPO is found inExpand

Specific detection of Campylobacter jejuni using the bacteriophage NCTC 12673 receptor binding protein as a probe.
Campylobacter jejuni is found in the intestines of poultry, cattle, swine, wild birds and pet animals and is the major cause of foodborne gastroenteritis in developed countries. We report the use ofExpand

Inhaled Microparticles Containing Clofazimine Are Efficacious in Treatment of Experimental Tuberculosis in Mice
ABSTRACT Inhalable clofazimine-containing dry powder microparticles (CFM-DPI) and native clofazimine (CFM) were evaluated for activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis in human monocyte-derivedExpand
