A novel human cDNA homologous to the murine ecotropic retroviral receptor was cloned from a cDNA library derived from a human T-cell line. The human cDNA is highly homologous to the murine counterpart (87.6% amino acid identity), and its sequence predicts a protein with 629 amino acids (approximately 68 kDa), which is 7 amino acids more than the murine(More)
Five isolates of Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) from Lilium sp. (lily), which were isolated from specimens in Japan, Korea and Taiwan, were unable to support satellite RNA (satRNA) accumulation. In order to map the CMV sequences that are involved in satRNA support, HL-CMV (Japanese lily isolate), Y-CMV (ordinary strain) and Y-satellite RNA (Y-sat) were used as(More)
The murine cationic amino acid transporter is also the receptor for murine ecotropic leukemia retrovirus (MuLV-E). Recently, we have cloned a human gene (H13) homologous to the murine ecotropic retroviral receptor (ERR). Although the human homolog is very similar to murine ERR in sequence (87.6% amino acid identity) and structure (14 transmembrane-spanning(More)
Tobamovirus resistance in Capsicum plants, which is mediated by L genes (L 1 , L 2 , L 3 or L 4 ), is known to be temperature sensitive. However, the L 1a gene, a newly identified tobamovirus resistance gene that is mapped to the L locus, confers temperature-insensitive resistance against the tobamovirus P0 pathotype. To identify the viral elicitor that(More)
Cysteinyl leukotrienes (cysLTs), leukotriene C4 (LTC4), LTD4, and LTE4 are proinflammatory lipid mediators with pathobiologic function in asthma. LTE4, the stable cysLT, is a weak agonist for the type 1 and type 2 cysLT receptors (CysLTRs), which constrict airway smooth muscle, but elicits airflow obstruction and pulmonary inflammation in patients with(More)
To facilitate marker-assisted breeding and genetic analyses of pepper (Capsicum annuum), we developed non-redundant 2- or 3-base simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers from enriched C. annuum genomic libraries and from C. annuum cDNA sequences in public databases. The SSR-enriched libraries were constructed using combinations of three restriction enzymes(More)
We have identified a tobamovirus, isolated from pepper (Capsicum annuum cv. Tosajishi), as a Japanese isolate of Tobacco mild green mosaic virus (TMGMV-J). A cDNA clone of TMGMV-J from which infectious RNA transcripts can be synthesized in vitro was constructed. The RNA transcript was infectious to several plant species tested here including C. annuum cv.(More)
The receptor for gp70 envelope glycoprotein of murine ecotropic leukemia virus is essential for virus entry into the host cell and has been recently demonstrated to function as a cationic amino acid transporter. In the experiments reported herein, we compared the gene expression of the murine ecotropic retroviral receptor (ERR) and its human homolog (H13)(More)
Soybean 'Harosoy' is resistant to Cucumber mosaic virus soybean strain C (CMV-SC) and susceptible to CMV-S strain D (CMV-SD). Using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and Northern hybridization, we characterized the Harosoy resistance and found that CMV-SC did not spread systemically but was restricted to the inoculated leaves in Harosoy. Harosoy resistance(More)
A 54-year-old man had a 65-mm infrapapillary, circular, and laterally spreading tubular adenoma in the distal second and proximal third parts of the duodenum. The papilla was 15 mm from the proximal margin of the tumor. Because the patient requested organ-preserving laparoscopic surgery, we conducted laparoscopy-assisted pancreas-sparing duodenectomy(More)
