Serine hydrolases represent one of the largest and most diverse families of enzymes in higher eukaryotes, comprising numerous proteases, lipases, esterases, and amidases. The activities of many serine hydrolases are tightly regulated by posttranslational mechanisms, limiting the suitability of standard genomics and proteomics methods for the functional(More)
BACKGROUND The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers amyloid β (Aβ)-42, total-tau (T-tau), and phosphorylated-tau (P-tau) demonstrate good diagnostic accuracy for Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, there are large variations in biomarker measurements between studies, and between and within laboratories. The Alzheimer's Association has initiated a global(More)
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease (AD) are increasingly used in clinical settings, research and drug trials. However, their broad-scale use on different technology platforms is hampered by the lack of standardization at the level of sample handling, determination of concentrations of analytes and the absence of well-defined(More)
The legumes most often used in temperate pastures such as Trifolium subterraneum have relatively high external P requirements for maximum growth. We investigated root traits associated with P acquisition in current and novel pasture legumes, as well as temperate grasses which have lower P requirements. Thirteen legume species, two pasture grasses, and three(More)
Proteins coimmunoprecipitating with protein kinase C (PKC) epsilon in fibroblasts were identified through matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI TOF m/s). This method identified myosin IIA in PKC epsilon immunoprecipitates, as well as known PKC epsilon binding proteins, actin, beta'Cop and cytokeratin. Myosin is(More)
This work aimed to quantify the critical external requirement for phosphorus (P) (i.e. extractable-P concentration required for 90 % of maximum yield) for a number of temperate legume species and understand differences in dry matter allocation, P distribution and P acquisition efficiency among these species. Shoot and root growth of five legume and one(More)
Trifolium subterraneum L. is the predominant annual pasture legume in southern Australia. Cultivars with improved phosphorus (P) foraging ability would improve the P-use efficiency of agricultural systems. We therefore investigated variation in root traits related to P-uptake among six cultivars. Micro-swards were grown at six levels of P in field soil with(More)
A program that simulates random genetic drift, random mating, recombination, natural selection, and mutation process was developed to study the influence of these processes on the evolutionary dynamics of haplotype frequencies in populations. The program can track nine sites, each including up to 15 alleles. The program application was illustrated by the(More)
