DNA preparations from about hundred randomly selected clones containing mouse DNA fragments were screened for the existence of sequences complementary to long double-stranded regions of pre-mRNA able to snap back after melting (dsRNA-B). Many clones containing such sequences were found. The cloned sequences can be subdivided into three groups: (1) those(More)
A novel thermophilic spore-forming strain, Ga(T), was isolated from the Garga hot spring located in the northern part of the Transbaikal region (Russia). Strain Ga(T) was found to be an aerobic, Gram-positive, rod-shaped, thermophilic (optimum growth temperature is 60-65 degrees C), chemo-organotrophic bacterium that grows on various sugars, carboxylic(More)
Disulfide-rich peptide toxins found in the secretions of venomous organisms such as snakes, spiders, scorpions, leeches, and marine snails are highly efficient and effective tools for novel therapeutic drug development. Venom peptide toxins have been used extensively to characterize ion channels in the nervous system and platelet aggregation in haemostatic(More)
Cryptococcus neoformans is a pathogen that is common in immunosuppressed patients. It can be treated with amphotericin B and fluconazole, but the mortality rate remains 15 to 30%. Thus, novel and more effective anticryptococcal therapies are needed. The troponoids are based on natural products isolated from western red cedar, and have a broad range of(More)
