Genome sequence of an industrial microorganism Streptomyces avermitilis: Deducing the ability of producing secondary metabolites
Streptomyces avermitilis is a soil bacterium that carries out not only a complex morphological differentiation but also the production of secondary metabolites, one of which, avermectin, isExpand

Cortical organization by the septin cytoskeleton is essential for structural and mechanical integrity of mammalian spermatozoa.
Septins are polymerizing GTP binding proteins required for cortical organization during cytokinesis and other cellular processes. A mammalian septin gene Sept4 is expressed mainly in postmitoticExpand

The use of genomic in situ hybridization (GISH) to show transmission of recombinant chromosomes by a partially fertile bigeneric hybrid, Gasteria lutzii ×Aloe aristata (Aloaceae), to its progeny
Abstract.Genomic in situ hybridization (GISH) was used to study somatic chromosomes of parental and progeny plants (all 2n=2x=14) of the bigeneric hybrid between Gasteria lutzii and Aloe aristataExpand

Development of a novel PCR-RFLP assay for improved detection and typing of bovine papillomaviruses.
A polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) assay was developed to detect and type bovine papillomaviruses (BPVs) from tumors in cattle. Two degenerate primer setsExpand

A simple and useful coma scale for patients with neurologic emergencies: the Emergency Coma Scale.
OBJECTIVES The Emergency Coma Scale (ECS) was developed in Japan in 2003. We planned a multicenter study to evaluate the utility of the ECS by comparison of the ECS and the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS).Expand
