FOR THE second time, the International Society of Sugar Cane Technologists (ISSCT) pathology and molecular biology workshops were jointly held, from 23–27 June 2008 in Cali, Colombia. The meeting was hosted by CENICAÑA and organised by Jorge I. Victoria and Jershon López-Gerena. The response of participants was positive with 44 delegates representing 15(More)
Dictyostelium discoideum makes multiple developmentally regulated lysosomal cysteine proteinases. One of these, a lysosomal enzyme called proteinase I, contains a cluster of GlcNAc-alpha-1-P-Ser residues. We call this phosphoglycosylation. To study its function, a cDNA library from vegetative cells was screened, and two novel cysteine proteinase clones were(More)
Boids are primitive snakes from a basal lineage that is widely distributed in Neotropical region. Many of these species are both morphologically and biogeographically divergent, and the relationship among some species remains uncertain even with evolutionary and phylogenetic studies being proposed for the group. For a better understanding of the(More)
Many Dictyostelium lysosomal enzymes contain mannose-6-phosphate (Man-6-P) in their N-linked oligosaccharide chains. We have now characterized a new group of lysosomal proteins that contain N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate (GlcNAc-1-P) linked to serine residues. GlcNAc-1-P-containing proteins, which include papain-like cysteine proteinases, cofractionate(More)
