To study the phylogenetics of sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) and its relatives we sequenced four loci on cytoplasmic genomes (two chloroplast and two mitochondrial) and analyzed mitochondrial RFLPs generated using probes for COXI, COXII, COXIII, Cob, 18S+5S, 26S, ATPase 6, ATPase 9, and ATPase α (D'Hont et al. 1993). Approximately 650 bp of DNA in the(More)
Polymorphisms in genomic fingerprints generated by arbitrarily primed PCR (AP-PCR) can distinguish between strains of almost any organism. We applied the technique to the mouse (Mus musculus). The characteristic differences in the AP-PCR genomic fingerprints between strains will be of value in strain identification and verification. Using one primer, we(More)
Intergenic tRNA spacers from strains of streptococcal groups A, B, and G were amplified by using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) at low stringency with consensus tRNA gene primers. Cloning and sequencing showed that many of the homologous intergenic spacers differed in length between species. The sequences of the tRNA genes that flank these polymorphic(More)
Ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (ATM) is needed for the initiation of the double-strand break (DSB) repair by homologous recombination (HR). ATM triggers DSB end resection by stimulating the nucleolytic activity of CtIP and MRE11 to generate 3'-ssDNA overhangs, followed by RPA loading and RAD51 nucleofilament formation. Here we show for the first time that(More)
Published methods of linear actuation via string transmission are discussed. A novel twisting string actuator design named Mini Twist is introduced. The design and components of the Mini Twist are thoroughly explained, and a theoretical model for its transmission method is discussed. The experimental setup is defined. Experimental data regarding the(More)
Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme catalysed metabolism of xenobiotics such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are known to occur in polychaetes. Yet specific polychaete CYP enzymes have so far not been identified. Here, we report two partial CYP cDNA sequences, both of 453 bp, characterised from Nereis virens. These are the first CYP sequences reported(More)
