Expression of the maize alcohol dehydrogenase 1 (Adh1) gene is transcriptionally regulated under conditions of anaerobic stress. DNA sequences required for the expression of Adh1 have been identified by a functional analysis of in vitro constructed hybrid genes consisting of the Adh1 promoter fused to the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase coding region.

Effective discharge planning can contribute significantly to preventing homelessness. As part of a larger continuum of care, this process can help people reach goals of stable housing, recovery, and increased quality of life in the community. Discharge planning identifies and organizes services a person with mental illness, substance abuse, and other(More)
Cognitive impairments can increase significantly a person's level of risk for becoming or remaining homeless. Five topics are explored that address these impairments in preventing homelessness: (1) the nature and estimated prevalence of cognitive impairments among people who are homeless, especially those with vulnerabilities like mental illness or(More)
We analyzed the extent, reproducibility, and developmental control of genomic rearrangements in the somatic macronucleus of the ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila. To exclude differences caused by genetic polymorphisms, we constructed whole-genome homozygotes, and we compared the homozygous progeny derived from single macronuclear differentiation events. This(More)
Transient-expression analysis has shown anaerobic regulation of the alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh1) promoter in a chimeric construct. Chimeric plasmids containing the promoter for the Adh1 gene of maize (Zea mays L.) linked to the coding sequence of the chloramphenicol acetyl transferase (cat) gene were introduced into maize protoplasts using electroporation.(More)
