On the control of oocyte meiotic maturation and ovulation in Caenorhabditis elegans.
Prior to fertilization, oocytes undergo meiotic maturation (cell cycle progression) and ovulation (expulsion from the ovary). To begin the study of these processes in Caenorhabditis elegans, we have… Expand
Soma-germ cell interactions in Caenorhabditis elegans: multiple events of hermaphrodite germline development require the somatic sheath and spermathecal lineages.
Germ cells complete multiple events to form functional oocytes and sperm. In the Caenorhabditis elegans hermaphrodite, germ cells develop in proximity to the somatic gonad sheath and spermathecal… Expand
Draft Genome of the Filarial Nematode Parasite Brugia malayi
Parasitic nematodes that cause elephantiasis and river blindness threaten hundreds of millions of people in the developing world. We have sequenced the ∼90 megabase (Mb) genome of the human filarial… Expand
A transcriptomic analysis of the phylum Nematoda
The phylum Nematoda occupies a huge range of ecological niches, from free-living microbivores to human parasites. We analyzed the genomic biology of the phylum using 265,494 expressed-sequence tag… Expand
The conduction of electricity through concrete
Synopsis This paper examines the relationship between mix proportions, electrical properties of the constituents of concrete and the over-all electrical resistivity for concrete. The mechanisms for… Expand
The draft genome of the parasitic nematode Trichinella spiralis
Genome evolution studies for the phylum Nematoda have been limited by focusing on comparisons involving Caenorhabditis elegans. We report a draft genome sequence of Trichinella spiralis, a food-borne… Expand
Horizontally transferred genes in plant-parasitic nematodes: a high-throughput genomic approach
BackgroundPublished accounts of horizontally acquired genes in plant-parasitic nematodes have not been the result of a specific search for gene transfer per se, but rather have emerged from… Expand

BackgroundPlant parasitic nematodes are major pathogens of most crops. Molecular characterization of these species as well as the development of new techniques for control can benefit from genomic… Expand
Defining the role of phosphomethylethanolamine N-methyltransferase from Caenorhabditis elegans in phosphocholine biosynthesis by biochemical and kinetic analysis.
In plants and Plasmodium falciparum, the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine requires the conversion of phosphoethanolamine to phosphocholine by phosphoethanolamine methyltransferase (PEAMT). This… Expand
Phosphoethanolamine N-methyltransferase (PMT-1) catalyses the first reaction of a new pathway for phosphocholine biosynthesis in Caenorhabditis elegans.

The development of nematicides targeting parasitic nematodes of animals and plants requires the identification of biochemical targets not found in host organisms. Recent studies suggest that… Expand
