HtrA2/Omi, a mitochondrial trypsin-like serine protease, is pivotal in regulating apoptotic cell death; however, the underlying mechanism of HtrA2/Omi-mediated apoptosis remains to be elucidated. Using the pGEX bacterial expression system, we investigated the expression patterns of various forms of HtrA2/Omi. Full-length mouse HtrA2/Omi (mHtrA2/Omi) was(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is the most common neurodegenerative movement disorder and is characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons and the formation of eosinophilic intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies known as Lewy bodies. Although alpha-synuclein is known to be a pivotal factor implicated in the pathogenesis of PD, its function remains to be(More)
The neuronal phosphoprotein alpha-synuclein has been increasingly implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD) and other neurodegenerative diseases; however, the exact function of alpha-synuclein still remains illusive. Suitable antibodies (Abs) specific for the gene of interest are indispensable for studying biological and immunological(More)
The internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions including the 3'-end of 18S rRNA gene, 5.8S rRNA gene and the 5'-end of the 28S rRNA gene of Rhizopus spp. were amplified by PCR and analyzed by DNASIS program. Length polymorphism of these region ranged from 564 bp in R. oryzae to 789bp in R. stolonifer. The length and sequence of 5.8S was very conserved with(More)
Sequencing of the Moraxella sp. CK-1 autolysin (cell wall hydrolases) gene showed the presence of an open reading frame which encodes a polypeptide of 273 amino acids with a molecular mass of 33,316 Da. A presumed ribosomal binding site, a possible –10 and –35 region, and rho-dependent terminators were found. The C-terminal region of the mature protein(More)
