The Saccharomyces cerevisiae RPS0 A and B genes encode proteins essential for maturation of the 40S ribosomal subunit precursors. We have isolated a homologue of the RPS0 gene from Candida tropicalis, which we named CtRPS0. The C. tropicalis RPS0 encodes a protein of 261 amino acid residues with a predicted molecular weight of 28.65 kDa and an isoelectric(More)
OBJECTIVES ERT application to Fabry's disease patients needs sensitive assay method of the missing enzyme (α-d-galactosidase A) to achieve early diagnosis. DESIGN AND METHODS A new fluorimetric assay method of α-d-galactosidase A was developed, using whole blood (WB) from 30 healthy individuals, 7 hemizygous males and 7 heterozygous females with Fabry's(More)
A single pair of primers, deduced from the intron nucleotide sequence of the Candida albicans CaYST1 gene, was used in PCR analysis performed with both genomic DNA and whole cells of clinical isolates of Candida species and other microorganisms. All the clinical C. albicans isolates generated the expected 310 bp amplicon; other Candida species as well as(More)
