The non-specific lipid transfer proteins (nsLTPs) are characterized by a compact structure with a central hydrophobic cavity very suitable for binding hydrophobic ligands, such as lipids. The nsLTPs are encoded by large gene families in all land plant lineages, but seem to be absent from green algae. The nsLTPs are classified to different types based on(More)
Sammanfattning Abstract: During the water-to-land transition, that occurred approximately 450 MYA, novel habitats were revealed to the emerging plants. This terrestrial habitat was a harsh environment compared to the aquatic, with shifting substrate content, irregular supply of water, damaging UV-radiation and rapid fluctuating temperatures. Non-specific(More)
With anion-exchange chromatography, the gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla)-containing proteins of rat dentin were separated into four closely related fractions (gamma 1-gamma 4). Edman degradation of gamma 2 gave two NH2-terminal sequences with a minor sequence beginning five residues shorter than the major one. Gel electrophoresis of gamma 2 yielded one(More)
Sex-linked barring is a fascinating plumage pattern in chickens recently shown to be associated with two non-coding and two missense mutations affecting the ARF transcript at the CDKN2A tumor suppressor locus. It however remained a mystery whether all four mutations are indeed causative and how they contribute to the barring phenotype. Here, we show that(More)
