The molecular mechanisms of plant recognition, colonization, and nutrient exchange between diazotrophic endophytes and plants are scarcely known. Herbaspirillum seropedicae is an endophytic bacterium capable of colonizing intercellular spaces of grasses such as rice and sugar cane. The genome of H. seropedicae strain SmR1 was sequenced and annotated by The(More)
The role of nitric oxide (NO) as a major regulator of plant physiological functions has become increasingly evident. To further improve our understanding of its role, within the last few years plant biologists have begun to embrace the exciting opportunity of investigating protein S-nitrosylation, a major reversible NO-dependent post-translational(More)
Mycoplasma synoviae is a Gram positive bacteria lacking of cell wall that affects chickens and turkeys causing infection in the upper respiratory tract and in some cases arthritis, with economical impact to broiler breeders. Treatment and prevention of avian synovitis depend on knowledge of the infectious process. Secreted or surface-exposed proteins play a(More)
AtMYB30 is well known as a transcription factor involved in cell death processes during the hypersensitive response against biotic stress in Arabidopsis thaliana. Despite the relevant function played by R2R3-MYB transcription factors in the regulation of plant gene expression, limited information exists about how these proteins interact with their DNA(More)
Serine/threonine protein phosphatases have been described in many pathogenic bacteria as essential enzymes involved in phosphorylation-dependent signal transduction pathways and frequently associated with the virulence of these organisms. An inspection of Mycoplasma synoviae genome revealed the presence of a gene (prpC) encoding a putative protein(More)

Protein tyrosine phosphatase B (PtpB) is one of the virulence factors secreted into the host cell by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. PtpB attenuates host immune defenses by interfering with signal transduction pathways in macrophages and, therefore, it is considered a promising target for the development of novel anti-tuberculosis drugs. Here we report the(More)
Preconditioning induced by N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) has been used as a therapeutic tool against later neuronal insults. NMDA preconditioning affords neuroprotection against convulsions and cellular damage induced by the NMDA receptor agonist, quinolinic acid (QA) with time-window dependence. This study aimed to evaluate the molecular alterations promoted(More)
Protein secondary structure prediction (PSSP) is one of the main tasks in computational biology. During the last few decades, much effort has been made towards solving this problem, with various approaches, mainly artificial neural networks (ANN). Generally, in order to predict the protein secondary structure, the ANN training process is performed using(More)
