SURE (sugar responsive) is a cis element in plant sugar signaling. The SURE element was reported first for potato, in which it confers sugar responsiveness to the patatin promoter. A SURE binding transcription factor has not been isolated. We have isolated a transcription factor cDNA from barley and purified the corresponding protein. The transcription(More)
Sugar signalling cascades are important components of regulatory networks in cells. Compared with the situation in bacteria, yeast and animals, participants of the sugar signalling pathways in plants are poorly understood. Several genes involved in starch synthesis are known to be sugar inducible, although the signal transduction pathways remain(More)
Starch branching enzyme (SBE) activity in the cassava storage root exhibited a diurnal fluctuation, dictated by a transcriptional oscillation of the corresponding SBE genes. The peak of SBE activity coincided with the onset of sucrose accumulation in the storage, and we conclude that the oscillatory mechanism keeps the starch synthetic apparatus in the(More)
This study quantified the cell surface β-adrenoreceptor density and ligand binding affinity in the ventricular tissue of seven teleost species; skipjack tuna (Katsowonus pelamis), yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares), Pacific mackerel (Scomber japonicus), mahimahi (dolphin fish; Coryphaena hippurus), sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka), rainbow trout(More)
Purpose. The aim of this article was to study the possibility of assessing the structural features affecting tablet tensile strength to obtain information on the dominating bond types, i.e. interparticulate attractions, in tablets. Methods. The features of the internal tablet structure considered to be important for tablet tensile strength were assessed(More)
Analysis of the carboxymethylated subunit of human cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) by matrix-assisted laser desorption time-of-flight mass spectrometry indicated a protonated molecular mass of 86949 +/- 149 Da, compared with 83547.0 Da calculated from the sequence. Treatment with N-glycanase caused a reduction in mass of 3571 +/- 219 Da, but(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the courses in endodontics and to assess the treatment quality in the student clinics in two dental schools, in Malmö, Sweden and Paris, France. A further aim was to improve the curriculum development in Paris 5 and Malmö by testing student exchange programmes. The comparison was based on the guidelines for undergraduate(More)
The aim of this randomized, double-blind, cross-over pilot study was to evaluate the effect on plaque formation and patient experience of rinsing after periodontal surgery using chlorhexidine solution with or without alcohol. Twenty patients refrained from tooth brushing after surgery and used two mouth rinses.Ten patients used alcohol-based (AB) 0.1% and(More)
