The nucleotide sequences of the first internal transcribed spacer (ITS-1), 5.8S gene and second internal transcribed spacer (ITS-2) of ribosomal DNA have been determined for Cylicocyclus nassatus, C. ashworthi and C. insignis. Pairwise comparisons revealed sequence differences between the taxa ranging from 3.8 to 6.2% for the ITS-2 and 2.2-2.7% for the(More)
We used an expressed sequence tag approach to analyze genes expressed by the infective larvae of the rodent filarial parasite Litomosoides sigmodontis. One hundred fifty two new genes were identified, including several proposed as vaccine candidates in studies with human filarial parasites. Our findings have important implications for the use of L.(More)
Three nucleotide data sets, one nuclear (ITS-2) and two mitochondrial (COI and l-rRNA), have been investigated in order to determine relationships among species of Strongylinae and Cyathostominae, intestinal parasites of the horse. The data exhibited a strong mutational bias towards A and T and in the COI gene, silent sites appeared to saturate rapidly(More)
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae MUM2 gene is essential for meiotic, but not mitotic, DNA replication and thus sporulation. Genetic interactions between MUM2 and a component of the origin recognition complex and polymerase alpha-primase suggest that MUM2 influences the function of the DNA replication machinery. Early meiotic gene expression is induced to a much(More)
The gamma1-isoform of protein phosphatase-1 expressed in Escherichia coli (PP1gamma) and the native PP1 catalytic subunit (PP1C) isolated from skeletal muscle dephosphorylated Ser-14 of glycogen phosphorylase at comparable rates. In contrast, PP1gamma dephosphorylated several tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins at similar rates to authentic protein tyrosine(More)
SIR — The papers by Malte Meinshausen and colleagues (‘Greenhouse-gas emission targets for limiting global warming to 2 °C’ Nature 458, 1158–1162; 2009) and by Myles Allen and colleagues (‘Warming caused by cumulative carbon emissions towards the trillionth tonne’ Nature 458, 1163–1166; 2009) suggest that society could limit global warming below the widely(More)
