Complexes of different electrophoretic mobility containing the stem-loop binding protein, a 45 kDa protein, bound to the stem-loop at the 3' end of histone mRNA, are present in both nuclear and cytoplasmic extracts from mammalian cells. We have determined the effect of changes in the loop, in the stem and in the flanking sequences on the affinity of the(More)
Enolase (2-phospho-D-glycerate hydrolase, EC has been identified as an anaerobic stress protein in Echinochloa oryzoides based on the homology of its internal amino acid sequence with those of enolases from other organisms, by immunological reactivity, and induction of catalytic activity during anaerobic stress. Enolase activity was induced 5-fold(More)
Mammalian histone mRNAs end in a highly conserved stem-loop structure, with a six-base stem and a four-base loop. We have examined the effect of mutating the stem-loop on the expression of the histone mRNA in vivo by introducing the mutated histone genes into CHO cells by stable transfection. Point mutations have been introduced into the loop sequence and(More)
The stem-loop structure at the 3' end of replication-dependent histone mRNA is required for efficient pre-mRNA processing, localization of histone mRNA to the polyribosomes, and regulation of histone mRNA degradation. A protein, the stem-loop binding protein (SLBP), binds the 3' end of histone mRNA and is thought to mediate some or all of these processes. A(More)
Using a degenerate PCR based approach, a fragment of the novel G protein-coupled receptor, VTR 15-20, was identified from the rat ventral tegmentum. Hybridization screening and RACE PCR were employed to isolate the full length clone. The cDNA encodes a protein of 305 amino acids which shares homology to several orphan as well as known G protein-coupled(More)
This article documents the addition of 229 microsatellite marker loci to the Molecular Ecology Resources Database. Loci were developed for the following species: Acacia auriculiformis × Acacia mangium hybrid, Alabama argillacea, Anoplopoma fimbria, Aplochiton zebra, Brevicoryne brassicae, Bruguiera gymnorhiza, Bucorvus leadbeateri, Delphacodes detecta,(More)
As highly productive perennial grasses are evaluated as bioenergy feedstocks, a major consideration is biomass yield stability. Two experiments were conducted to examine some aspects of yield stability for two biofuel species: switchgrass (Panicum vigratum L.) and Miscanthus x giganteus (Mxg). Biomass yields of these species were evaluated under various(More)
