Characterization of the xylose-transporting properties of yeast hexose transporters and their influence on xylose utilization.
For an economically feasible production of ethanol from plant biomass by microbial cells, the fermentation of xylose is important. As xylose uptake might be a limiting step for xylose fermentation byExpand

The retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator, RPGR, interacts with the delta subunit of rod cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase.
Recently, the retinitis pigmentosa 3 (RP3) gene has been cloned and named retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator (RPGR). The amino-terminal half of RPGR is homologous to regulator of chromosomeExpand

Characterization of the factor VIII defect in 147 patients with sporadic hemophilia A: family studies indicate a mutation type-dependent sex ratio of mutation frequencies.
The clinical manifestation of hemophilia A is caused by a wide range of different mutations. In this study the factor VIII genes of 147 severe hemophilia A patients--all exclusively from sporadicExpand

HIV-1 nucleic acids localize to the spermatogonia and their progeny. A study by polymerase chain reaction in situ hybridization.
The purpose of this study was to determine the histological distribution of in situ polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-amplified HIV-1 nucleic acids in the male genital tract to elucidate the mechanismExpand

RNA1 Encodes a GTPase-activating Protein Specific for Gsp1p, the Ran/TC4 Homologue of Saccharomyces cerevisiae(*)
Ran/TC4 is a ras-related GTP-binding protein predominantly located in the nucleus. Ran/TC4 is essential for nuclear transport and is involved in mitotic control. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae a geneExpand

Characterizing the genetic basis of innate immune response in TLR4-activated human monocytes.
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play a key role in innate immunity. Apart from their function in host defense, dysregulation in TLR signalling can confer risk to autoimmune diseases, septic shock orExpand

Mapping of digested and undigested random amplified microsatellite polymorphisms in barley.
The broad use of microsatellites as a tool for constructing linkage maps in plants has been limited by the need for sequence data to detect the underlying simple sequence repeats. Therefore, randomExpand

An improved technique for the in situ detection of DNA after polymerase chain reaction amplification.
In situ detection of polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-amplified DNA in cell and tissue preparations previously required 5 to 7 primer pairs designed to generate a long (greater than 1,000 base pair)Expand

De Novo Mutations in CHAMP1 Cause Intellectual Disability with Severe Speech Impairment.
CHAMP1 encodes a protein with a function in kinetochore-microtubule attachment and in the regulation of chromosome segregation, both of which are known to be important for neurodevelopment. By trioExpand
