BACKGROUND Long Interspersed Nuclear Elements (LINEs) are the most abundant retrotransposons in humans. About 79% of human genes are estimated to contain at least one segment of LINE per transcription unit. Recent studies have shown that LINE elements can affect protein sequences, splicing patterns and expression of human genes. DESCRIPTION We have(More)
Most Saccharomyces spp. cannot degrade or ferment dextrin, which is the second most abundant carbohydrate in wort for commercial beer production. Dextrin-degrading brewer’s bottom and top yeasts expressing the glucoamylase gene (GAM1) from Debaryomyces occidentalis were developed to produce low-carbohydrate (calorie) beers. GAM1 was constitutively expressed(More)
To produce an alcoholic beverage containing anthocyanins that can act as antioxidants and have anticarcinogenic activities and antihypertensive effects. High starch-assimilating sake yeast strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae co-expressing the glucoamylase and α-amylase genes from Debaryomyces occidentalis using the double rDNA-integration system was(More)
