The neprilysin (NEP) family of zinc metalloendopeptidases: Genomics and function
Knowledge of the complete genomes of Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila melanogaster allows the full complement of NEP‐like activities to be analysed in a single organism, and reveals the power of functional genomics. Expand
Comparative genomics of the eukaryotes.
The fly has orthologs to 177 of the 289 human disease genes examined and provides the foundation for rapid analysis of some of the basic processes involved in human disease. Expand
The code within the codons.
It is shown that each of the three codon bases has a general correlation with a different, predictable amino acid property, depending on position within the codon, and the apparently systematic nature of these relationships has profound implications for the origin of the genetic code. Expand
Inland capture fisheries
Inland fisheries are less heavily exploited in South and Central America, and in the North and South temperate zones inland fisheries are mostly oriented to recreation rather than food production, and the future of inland fisheries varies between continents. Expand
Inland capture fishery statistics of Southeast Asia: current status and information needs
Inland capture fisheries in Southeast Asia are characterised by great diversity in the range of gears used, types of environments in which they are used and the socially and culturally complexExpand

Mouse knockout experiments, and comparative work with invertebrate homologues, suggest that the two domains of angiotensin converting enzyme have clearly distinct roles. Expand
Blood-free selective medium for isolation of Campylobacter jejuni from feces
A blood-free selective agar which contains charcoal, ferrous sulfate, sodium pyruvate, casein hydrolysates, cefazolin, and sodium deoxycholate was compared with Preston medium for isolation of Campylobacter jejuni from human feces, and isolation rates were similar on both media, but CCD agar was less selective.

A study of thermophilic campylobacters in a river system.
Serotypes of C. jejuni commonly isolated from enteritis in man were frequently found in river water tested during this study, and Surface water run-off from adjacent farmland following heavy rainfall increased the counts of campylobacters in the river system. Expand
Cloning and Expression of an Evolutionary Conserved Single-domain Angiotensin Converting Enzyme from Drosophila melanogaster(*)
An apparent single-domain (67 kDa) insect angiotensin converting enzyme (AnCE) in embryos of Drosophila melanogaster is identified and the cloning and expression of a Drosophile AnCE cDNA is reported which codes for a single- domain 615-amino acid protein with a predicted 17-AMino acid signal peptide and regions with high levels of homology to both the N- and C-domains of mammalian somatic ACE.
