Isolation, cDNA cloning, and overexpression of a 33-kD cell surface glycoprotein that binds to the globular "heads" of C1q
This work describes the functional characterization, cDNA cloning, and expression of a novel cell surface protein. This protein designated gC1q-R, was first isolated from Raji cells and was found toExpand

Overexpressing AtPAP15 Enhances Phosphorus Efficiency in Soybean1[W][OA]
Low phosphorus (P) availability is a major constraint to crop growth and production, including soybean (Glycine max), on a global scale. However, 50% to 80% of the total P in agricultural soilsExpand

Assessment of genetic, antigenic and pathotypic criteria for the characterization of IBDV strains
The aim of this work was the selection and comparison of representative infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) strains. Nine strains of IBDV, isolated at different times and from different geographicExpand

Distribution and diversity of phytate-mineralizing bacteria
Phytate, the most abundant organic phosphorus compound in soil, dominates the biotic phosphorus input from terrestrial runoffs into aquatic systems. Microbial mineralization of phytate by phytases isExpand

Secretion of beta-propeller phytase from tobacco and Arabidopsis roots enhances phosphorus utilization
Abstract A large proportion of soil phosphorus (P) exists as organic compounds, of which phytic acid (IHP) is the dominant form. To generate transgenic plants capable of utilizing exogenous IHP,Expand

Molecular and Biochemical Characterization of AtPAP15, a Purple Acid Phosphatase with Phytase Activity, in Arabidopsis1[W][OA]
Purple acid phosphatase (PAP) catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphate monoesters and anhydrides to release phosphate within an acidic pH range. Among the 29 PAP-like proteins in ArabidopsisExpand

Hydrolysis of precipitated phytate by three distinct families of phytases
While genetically modified plants that secrete histidine acid phosphatases (HAPs), β-propeller phytases (BPPs) and purple acid phosphatases (PAPs) have been shown to assimilate soluble phytate,Expand
