The telomere repeat lengths of BL cell lines were quantified by measuring terminal restriction fragment (TRF). Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-positive Namalwa, Raji, and EB-3 cell lines have long telomeres, i.e. TRFs 10-19 kbp, whereas the Daudi cell line, producing a transformation-defective EBV mutant, has TRFs approximately 2.2 kbp. EBV-negative BJAB and DG75(More)
The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model coupled with an Urban Canopy Model (UCM) was used for studying urban environmental issues. Because land use data employed in the WRF model do not agree with the current situation around Guangzhou, China, the performance of WRF/UCM with new land-use data extracted from Remote Sensing (RS) data was evaluated in(More)
Telomere is the specialized structure of chromosome end. Telomeric DNA is essential for stabilization of linear double-stranded DNA molecules. Human telomeric DNA comprises the tandem repeat (AATGGG)n. Telomeres of normal somatic cells shorten progressively on every cell division, and telomere length is considered to determine cellular proliferative(More)
An ATP-independent DNA topoisomerase has been isolated from chloroplasts of cauliflower leaves (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis) through DEAE-cellulose, AF-blue Toyopearl, and hydroxyapatite column chromatography. The sedimentation coefficient and Stokes radius of this enzyme are 3.6S and 3.6 nm, respectively, and the molecular weight of native enzyme is(More)
