Electroporation is a valuable tool for nucleic acid delivery because it can be used for a wide variety of cell types. Many scientists are shifting toward the use of cell types that are more relevant to in vivo applications, including primary cells, which are considered difficult to transfect. The ability to electroporate these cell types with nucleic acid(More)
Bark lectins from the elderberry plants belonging to the genus Sambucus specifically bind to Neu5Acalpha2,6Gal/GalNAc sequence and have long been used for the analysis of sialoglycoconjugates that play important roles in many biological phenomena. However, molecular basis of such a unique carbohydrate binding specificity has not been understood. To answer(More)
We examined chlL ~rxC) gene evolution using several approaches. Sequences from the chloroplast genome of the fern Polystichum acrostichoides and from the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. 7002 were determined and found to be highly conserved. A complete physical map of the fern chloroplast genome and partial maps of other vascular plant taxa show that chlL(More)
