Rice is a model genome for cereal research, providing important information about genome structure and evolution. Retrotransposons are common components of grass genomes, showing activity at transcription, translation and integration levels. Their abundance and ability to transpose make them good potential markers. In this study, we used 2 multilocus(More)
This paper presents some requirements for a new ontology-based authoring environment. By analyzing some systems that use ontologies for several tasks, we identified some features and purposes and showed how they can contribute to help define a new authoring environment based on ontologies to represent information before a document is published. The systems(More)
Studies of the gross morphology and microstructure of teeth have provided a great deal of information about the function and evolution of mammals. Among the structural features studied, the dentinoenamel junction has received relatively little attention. In the present work, we used ground sections to perform a comparative analysis of the structure of the(More)
Allergens from castor beans (CB-1A) were fractionated by ion-exchange chromatography both on CM- and SP-Sephadex, employing pH gradient. SP-Sephadex showed better results and fractionated the allergens into 7 components, eluted in a narrow pH range (5.0 - 6.6). An attempt to isolate the major acidic fraction of the group involved successive chromatographic(More)
CB-1A chemical characterization comprised the determination of nitrogen (Kjeldhal: 15.5%: amino acid composition: 17.5%), total (6.8%) and reducing (1.6%) carbohydrates, amino acid composition (Lys4, His1, Arg11, Asp3, Thr1, Ser7, Glu16, Pro2, Gly5, Ala3, Cys6, Val3, Met1, Ile3, Leu4, Tyr1, Phe1; 82 residues). Its behaviour under several TCA concentrations,(More)
