ROSO: optimizing oligonucleotide probes for microarrays
UNLABELLED ROSO is software to design optimal oligonucleotide probe sets for microarrays. Expand
A long-term evolutionary pressure on the amount of noncoding DNA.
A significant part of eukaryotic noncoding DNA is viewed as the passive result of mutational processes, such as the proliferation of mobile elements. However, sequences lacking an immediate utilityExpand
Different Levels of Transcriptional Regulation Due to Trophic Constraints in the Reduced Genome of Buchnera aphidicola APS
ABSTRACT Symbiotic associations involving intracellular microorganisms and animals are widespread, especially for species feeding on poor or unbalanced diets. Buchnera aphidicola, the obligateExpand
Adaptation in a spider mite population after long‐term evolution on a single host plant
Evolution in a single environment is expected to erode genetic variability, thereby precluding adaptation to novel environments. To test this, a large population of spider mites kept on cucumber forExpand
Conservation of the links between gene transcription and chromosomal organization in the highly reduced genome of Buchnera aphidicola
BackgroundGenomic studies on bacteria have clearly shown the existence of chromosomal organization as regards, for example, to gene localization, order and orientation. Moreover, transcriptomicExpand
Codon usage bias and tRNA over-expression in Buchnera aphidicola after aromatic amino acid nutritional stress on its host Acyrthosiphon pisum
Codon usage bias and relative abundances of tRNA isoacceptors were analysed in the obligate intracellular symbiotic bacterium, Buchnera aphidicola from the aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum, using aExpand
Multimodal dynamic response of the Buchnera aphidicola pLeu plasmid to variations in leucine demand of its host, the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum
Aphids, important agricultural pests, can grow and reproduce thanks to their intimate symbiosis with the γ‐proteobacterium Buchnera aphidicola that furnishes them with essential amino acids lackingExpand
Normal rat uterine stromal cells in continuous culture: characterization and progestin regulation of growth.
Stromal cells were isolated from rat uterus by sequential enzymatic digestion and density fractionation on Percoll gradient and subcultured by trypsinization. Two stable subcultures, named UII andExpand
Prolactin up-regulates prostaglandin E2 production through increased expression of pancreatic-type phospholipase A2 (type I) and prostaglandin GH synthase 2 in uterine cells
Uterine stromal cells produce and release PGE2, both processes being regulated by hormonal factors. In this study, we examined the effect of PRL on the PGE2 production and release measured byExpand
Phospholipase A2 inhibitors regulate the proliferation of normal uterine cells.
The effects of inhibitors of phospholipase A2, cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenase and cytochrome P450 activity on the proliferation of normal rat uterine stromal cells (UIII) were studied. At non-cytotoxicExpand
