Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia hordei, is an important disease afflicting barley (Hordeum vulgare) in many production regions of the world. The leaf rust resistance gene Rph15 was identified in an accession of wild barley (Hordeum vulgare subsp. spontaneum) and is one of the most broadly effective resistance genes known. Using amplified fragment length(More)
A full-length cDNA clone defining the new myrosinase gene family MC in Brassica napus was isolated and sequenced. Southern hybridization showed that the MC family probably consists of 3 or 4 genes in B. napus. MC genes are expressed in the developing seed, but not in the vegetative tissues investigated. In situ hybridizations to developing seeds showed that(More)
Myrosinase isoenzymes are known to be encoded by two different families of genes denoted MA and MB. Nucleotide sequence analysis of a Brassica napus genomic clone containing a gene for myrosinase revealed it to be a pseudogene of the MA family. The gene spans more than 5 kb and contains at least 12 exons. The exon sequence of the gene is highly similar to(More)
A full-length cDNA clone (MB3) and three partial clones (MA1, MB1 and MB2) which encode myrosinase (thioglucoside glucohydrolase, EC 3.2.3.1) were isolated from a Sinapis alba (white mustard) cDNA library. Nucleotide sequence analysis of these clones revealed that they are encoded by a gene family. Southern blot analysis with gene-specific probes showed(More)
Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) possesses a large and highly repetitive genome of 5.1 Gb that has hindered the development of a complete sequence. In 2012, the International Barley Sequencing Consortium released a resource integrating whole-genome shotgun sequences with a physical and genetic framework. However, because only 6278 bacterial artificial chromosome(More)
There are several reports on the association between pubalgia and intra-articular hip disorders. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcome in athletes who underwent tenotomy due to long-standing groin pain. A secondary purpose was evaluating the frequency of femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI) and its impact on the long-term outcome.(More)
The incidence and possible pathogenic mechanisms in the development of small intestinal mucosal lesions in experimental septic shock were investigated in cats. Mucosal lesions were found in 50% of the animals following a standardized bacteremia, and 15% had pronounced mucosal damage. The development of these lesions was not correlated with intestinal(More)
Myrosinase-binding proteins (MBPs) were purified from seeds of Brassica napus L. (oilseed rape). The proteins were characterized with respect to amino-acid composition, peptide sequence and isoelectric points. Gel electrophoresis and Western blotting of protein extracts from mature seeds showed the existence of at least ten proteins reacting with a(More)
Two different experimental models for inducing septic shock have been characterized. In one, septic shock was induced by intraperitoneal injection of live Escherichia coli bacteria. This resulted in a dose-dependent mortality. Those animals surviving the first 24 h are considered as permanent survivors. In the other models, septic shock and peritonitis was(More)
