A large family of bacterial activator proteins.
At least nine different bacterial proteins belong to the LysR family. The gene sequence for one of these proteins is presented here. Six others (Escherichia coli LysR, IlvY, CysB; SalmonellaExpand

Domain Architecture of Pyruvate Carboxylase, a Biotin-Dependent Multifunctional Enzyme
Biotin-dependent multifunctional enzymes carry out metabolically important carboxyl group transfer reactions and are potential targets for the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes. These enzymesExpand

opaque-2 modifiers increase gamma-zein synthesis and alter its spatial distribution in maize endosperm.
Through the action of opaque-2 modifier genes, the soft, floury endosperm of opaque-2 mutants is converted to a vitreous phenotype. This change in endosperm texture is associated with a twofold toExpand

Preliminary studies on the cryopreservation of gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) embryos
Abstract Vitrification could provide a promising tool for the cryopreservation of fish embryos. In order to achieve successful cryopreservation, several parameters should be taken into account in theExpand

The biotin enzyme family: conserved structural motifs and domain rearrangements.
The biotin carboxylase family is comprised of a group of enzymes that utilize a covalently bound prosthetic group, biotin, as a cofactor. These enzymes, which include acetyl-CoA carboxylase, pyruvateExpand

New Methods for Extraction and Quantitation of Zeins Reveal a High Content of gamma-Zein in Modified opaque-2 Maize.
We have developed methods for quantitative extraction and analysis of zeins from maize (Zea mays L.) flour. Extraction involved solubilization of total endosperm proteins in an alkaline bufferExpand

Molecular Responses to Abscisic Acid and Stress Are Conserved between Moss and Cereals.
Promoter elements from the wheat Em gene have been characterized. These elements are inducible by abscisic acid (ABA) and by osmotic stress. In this study, we demonstrated that the same promoterExpand

Yield Response of Indeterminate Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) to Simulated Insect Defoliation
Yield response to insect defoliation is primarily a function of light interception. A series of leaf removal experiments were conducted on an indeterminate chipping variety of Irish potato, SolanumExpand

Evaluation of gilthead sea bream, Sparus aurata, sperm quality after cryopreservation in 5 ml macrotubes.
Cryopreservation produces several types of damage in spermatozoa, leading to fertility impairment. The reduction arises both from a lower viability post-thaw and from sublethal dysfunctions in someExpand
