In 2000, transgenes were detected in local maize varieties (landraces) in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico [Quist, D. & Chapela, I. H. (2001) Nature 414, 541-543]. This region is part of the Mesoamerican center of origin for maize (Zea mays L.), and the genetic diversity that is maintained in open-pollinated landraces is recognized as an important genetic(More)

Heat shock proteins are evolutionarily highly conserved polypeptides that are produced under a variety of stress conditions to preserve cellular functions. A major antigen of tubercle bacilli of 65 kilodaltons is a heat shock protein that has significant sequence similarity and cross-reactivity with antigens of various other microbes. Monoclonal antibodies(More)
Molecular mimicry between viral antigens and host proteins was often suggested to be involved in induction of autoimmune diseases. In type 1 diabetes where pancreatic beta cells are destroyed by autoimmune phenomena, a linear sequence homology between a major autoantigen, glutamate decarboxylase (GAD), and the 2C protein of coxsackie B4 was identified.
