BRD2 (RING3) is a probable major susceptibility gene for common juvenile myoclonic epilepsy.
Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is a common form of generalized epilepsy that starts in adolescence. A major JME susceptibility locus (EJM1) was mapped to chromosomal region 6p21 in threeExpand

Inhabitancy of active Nitrosopumilus-like ammonia-oxidizing archaea and Nitrospira nitrite-oxidizing bacteria in the sponge Theonella swinhoei
Nitrification directly contributes to the ammonia removal in sponges, and it plays an indispensable role in sponge-mediated nitrogen cycle. Previous studies have demonstrated genomic evidences ofExpand

Expression and processing of Vibrio anguillarum zinc-metalloprotease in Escherichia coli
The extracellular zinc-metalloprotease of Vibrio anguillarum is a secreted virulence factor. It is synthesized from the empA gene as a 611-residue preproprotease and processed to the active matureExpand

Expression of FGF2 in the limb blastema of two Salamandridae correlates with their regenerative capability
Limb regenerative potential in urodeles seems to vary among different species. We observed that Triturus vulgaris meridionalis regenerate their limbs significantly faster than T. carnifex, where aExpand
