To reveal the processes involved in the early stages of symbiosis between soybean plants and root nodule bacteria, we conducted a proteomic analysis of the response to bacterial inoculation in the roots of supernodulating (En-b0-1) and non-nodulating (En1282) varieties, and their parental normal-nodulating variety (Enrei). A total of 56 proteins were(More)
Eugenol is an aromatic component of clove oil that has therapeutic potential as an antifungal drug, although its mode of action and precise cellular target(s) remain ambiguous. To address this knowledge gap, a chemical-genetic profile analysis of eugenol was done using ∼4700 haploid Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene deletion mutants to reveal 21 deletion(More)
The antifungal mode of action of thymol was investigated by a chemical-genetic profile analysis. Growth of each of ~4700 haploid Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene deletion mutants was monitored on medium with a subinhibitory concentration (50 μg/ml) of thymol and compared to growth on non-thymol control medium. This analysis revealed that, of the 76 deletion(More)
Recent reports of a link between human- and primate-specific genetic factors and human/primate-specific characteristics and diseases necessitate genome-wide identification of those factors. We have previously reported core promoter short tandem repeats (STRs) of extreme length (≥6-repeats) that have expanded exceptionally in primates vs. non-primates, and(More)
Over the last several decades, there have been a large number of studies done on the all aspects of legumes and bacteria which participate in nitrogen-fixing symbiosis. The analysis of legume-bacteria interaction is not just a matter of numerical complexity in terms of variants of gene products that can arise from a single gene. Bacteria regulate their(More)
Proteomics techniques were used to identify the underlying mechanism of the early stage of symbiosis between the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) and bacteria. Proteins from roots of common beans inoculated with bacteria were separated using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and identified using mass spectrometry. From 483 protein spots,(More)
