SELECTIVE REDUCTION OF DISULFIDES BY TRIS(2-CARBOXYETHYL) PHOSPHINE
Tris(2-carboxyethyl) phosphine (TCEP) reduces disulfides rapidly and completely in water at pH 4.5. It preferentially reduces more strained disulfides, in accordance with the usual mechanismExpand
Transcriptome analysis illuminates the nature of the intracellular interaction in a vertebrate-algal symbiosis
TLDR
Transcriptional changes in salamander cells suggest an innate immune response to the alga, with potential attenuation of NF-κB, and metabolic alterations indicative of modulation of insulin sensitivity. Expand
Global transcriptome analysis of the aphelid Paraphelidium tribonemae supports the phagotrophic origin of fungi
TLDR
The first full life-cycle transcriptome data of an aphelid species, which multi-gene phylogenomic analyses place as the closest relative of fungi, is presented and it is suggested that fungi evolved through the loss of phagotrophy from Aphelid-like ancestors. Expand
Comparative Genomics of a Bacterivorous Green Alga Reveals Evolutionary Causalities and Consequences of Phago-Mixotrophic Mode of Nutrition
TLDR
The results suggest that early, ancestral host eukaryotes that gave rise to phototrophs had the capacity to assimilate building block molecules from inorganic substances (i.e., prototrophy) and may at least partially explain the apparent lack of instances of permanent incorporation of photosynthetic endosymbionts in later-divergent, auxotrophic eukARYotic lineages, such as metazoans and ciliates.

Gene-based predictive models of trophic modes suggest Asgard archaea are not phagocytotic
TLDR
Gene-based predictive models of trophic modes reveal the Asgard archaea are not phagocytotic, and suggest instead that the origin of phagcytosis required an ancestral archaeal input of cytoskeleton components, a suite of bacterial proteins centred around calcium signalling, and a certain degree of innovation.

SUBTLE AND PROFOUND SENSORY ATTRIBUTES OF MEDICINAL PLANTS AMONG THE KENYAH LEPPO' KE OF EAST KALIMANTAN, BORNEO
The Kenyah Leppo' Ke of Borneo rely heavily on plants grown and gathered for healing a wide range of ailments. This study explores sensory selec­ tion critma of medidnal plants in regard to culturalExpand
Hydrolase Activity in Transgenic Peanut
Abstract Fungal diseases of peanut are responsible for increased production costs and yield losses of up to 50% for peanut producers in the U.S. Few cultivars with disease resistance have been deve...
Complete mitochondrial genomes of prasinophyte algae Pyramimonas parkeae and Cymbomonas tetramitiformis
TLDR
Comparisons of genome structure and gene order between these species and to those of other prasinophytes revealed that the mitochondrial genomes of P. parkeae and C. tetramitiformis are more similar to each other than to other pratinophytes, consistent with other molecular inferences of the close relationship between these two species.

Thermodynamics of tetraalkyl- and bis- tetraalkylammonium bromides: II. Heat capacities of solid state from 273 to 373 K☆
Abstract The solid phase heat capacities of a number of hydrocarbon containing salts have been determined in the temperature range 273 to 373 K using a differential scanning calorimeter. The saltsExpand
