An unusually compact ribosomal DNA repeat in the protozoan Giardia lamblia.
The ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes of the protozoan parasite Giardia lamblia have been analyzed with respect to size, composition and copy number. They are found to be remarkable in several respects.Expand

Cloning and characterization of a human Mac-2-binding protein, a new member of the superfamily defined by the macrophage scavenger receptor cysteine-rich domain.
We have purified and sequenced a secreted glycoprotein from both the human breast carcinoma cell line, SK-BR-3, and human breast milk. The native protein binds specifically to a humanExpand

IL-17RD (Sef or IL-17RLM) interacts with IL-17 receptor and mediates IL-17 signaling
Interleukin-17 (IL-17 or IL-17A) production is a hallmark of TH17 cells, a new unique lineage of CD4+ T lymphocytes contributing to the pathogenesis of multiple autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.Expand

Cadmium accumulation is enhanced by ammonium compared to nitrate in two hyperaccumulators, without affecting speciation
Highlight Supply of NH4 + compared with NO3 − increased plant Cd uptake, translocation and accumulation in Carpobrotus rossii and Solanum nigrum. Cd-S was the dominant Cd species, with Cd beingExpand

Mutational analysis of the PRP4 protein of Saccharomyces cerevisiae suggests domain structure and snRNP interactions.
The PRP4 protein of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is an essential part of the U4/U6 snRNP, a component of the mRNA splicing apparatus. As an approach to the determination of structure-functionExpand

Ammonium-based fertilizers enhance Cd accumulation in Carpobrotus rossii grown in two soils differing in pH.
Nitrogen fertilization has been shown to improve Cd uptake by plants but there is little information on the effect of N form. This study examined the effects of N form on Cd bioavailability andExpand

Central Region of the Human Splicing Factor Hprp3p Interacts with Hprp4p* 210
Human splicing factors Hprp3p and Hprp4p are associated with the U4/U6 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein particle, which is essential for the assembly of an active spliceosome. Currently, little isExpand

Expression of soluble and fully functional ricin A chain in Escherichia coli is temperature-sensitive.
Linkage of ricin A chain (RA) to a cell surface binding antibody or other ligand can result in a potent cytotoxic agent. We expressed the primary sequence for RA in Escherichia coli to facilitateExpand

Down-regulation of IL-8 expression in human airway epithelial cells through helper-dependent adenoviral-mediated RNA interference
ABSTRACTInterleukin (IL)-8 is a potent neutrophil chemotactic factor and a crucial mediator in neutrophil-dependent inflammation. Various cell types produce IL-8, either in response to externalExpand
