Gene rearrangements in gekkonid mitochondrial genomes with shuffling, loss, and reassignment of tRNA genes
Seven new mitogenomic sequences from Gekkonidae are determined using a high-throughput sequencing method and raise new questions as to how missing tRNAs are supplied and if the reassigned tRNA gene is fully functional. Expand
Molecular cloning and sequence analysis of the cyanobacterial gene for the large subunit of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase.
The gene for the LS of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase from a cyanobacterium, Anacystis nidulans 6301, has been cloned in pBR322 and subjected to sequence analysis, finding the protein is thus a conserved protein. Expand
Differential localizations and functions of rice nucleotide pyrophosphatase/phosphodiesterase isozymes 1 and 3
The results showed that NPP1 cannot be delivered to the plastid by the N-terminal region, including the ER signal sequence and the proprotein processing site, and that the peptide region, from 308 to 478 amino acid residues, is probably important for the transport of NPP 1 into plastids in rice cells.

Molecular Phylogeny and Evolution of Sex-Chromosomal Genes and SINE Sequences in the Family Mustelidae
In the ZFY final introns of Mustela erminea and Meles anakuma, insertions of carnivore-specific Sines were found, which indicates that the two homologous SINEs evolved in the mustelid genome and that they were inserted to the Zfy final intron lineage-independently after species radiation of Mustelidae.

Cloning and characterization of a plasmid DNA from anacystis nidulans 6301.
A plasmid DNA of Anacystis nidulans 6301 was isolated by CsCl-EtBr centrifugation and its cleavage map was constructed. Expand
