The effect of deleting both catalase genes and of increased oxygen as well as paraquat (a pro-oxidant) on the replicative life span of yeast mother cells has been investigated to test the so-called oxygen theory of aging. This is well established in higher organisms, but has not been extensively tested in the unicellular yeast model system. Life span(More)
GC clusters constitute the major repetitive elements in the mitochondrial (mt) genome of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Many of these clusters are optional and thus contribute much to the polymorphism of yeast mtDNAs. We have made a systematic search for polymorphic sites by comparing mtDNA sequences of various yeast strains. Most of the 26 di- or(More)
The complex structure of the multigene family at the Mla locus conferring powdery mildew resistance in barley was studied by making diallel crosses between several near-isogenic lines carrying different Mla alleles. The mode of inheritance of the Mla alleles investigated was determined to be dominant for Mla1, Mla6, Mla7 and Mla13 and semidominant for Mla3,(More)
Snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina) ribonuclease was isolated from pancreatic tissue. Turtle ribonuclease binds much more weakly to the affinity chromatography matrix used than mammalian ribonucleases. The amino acid sequence was determined from overlapping peptides obtained from three different digests. The N-terminal amino acid sequence of the protein(More)
The cDNA of mouse pancreatic mRNA has been cloned. After the library was screened with a rat ribonuclease cDNA probe, the positive clones were isolated and sequenced. There were no differences from the previously determined protein sequence. The mRNA codes for a preribonuclease of 149 amino acid residues including a signal peptide of 25 amino acids. The 3'(More)
To identify the mildew resistance locus Mla in barley with molecular markers, closely linked genomic RFLP clones were selected with the help of near-isogenic lines having the ‘Pallas’ and ‘Siri’ background. Out of 22 polymorphic clones 3 were located around the Mla locus on chromosome 5 with a distance of 5.1 + 2.9 cM (MWG 1H068), 4.2±1.7 cM (MWG 1H060) and(More)
The glaucocystophyte Cyanophora paradoxa contains cyanelles, plastids with prokaroytic features such as a peptidoglycan wall and a central proteinaceous inclusion body. While this central body includes the majority of the enzyme ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxgenase Rubisco), the presence of a carbon-concentrating mechanism (CCM) in C. paradoxa has(More)
The amino-acid sequence of pancreatic ribonuclease from the chromosomal species of Spalax ehrenbergi with karyotype 2n = 60 was determined. From the comparison of the sequence with other mammalian sequences we found that Spalax diverged from the myomorph rodent branch before the divergence of the Muridae and the Cricetidae. All myomorph rodent sequences(More)
