An overview of the last advances in probiotic and prebiotic field
The present review summarizes guidelines reported on the literature in regard to clinician or therapeutic trials of probiotic and prebiotic. Expand
Mapping the proteome of poplar and application to the discovery of drought‐stress responsive proteins
The function of up‐ and down‐regulated proteins is discussed with respect to the physiological response of the plants and compared with transcriptomic data. Expand
Identification of Features Regulating OST1 Kinase Activity and OST1 Function in Guard Cells1[W]
Successful purification of OST1 produced in Escherichia coli is reported, and site-directed mutagenesis and serial deletions reveal that serine (Ser)-175 in the activation loop and the SnRK2-specific box are critical for the activity of recombinant O ST1 kinase. Expand
Crystal structure of grape dihydroflavonol 4-reductase, a key enzyme in flavonoid biosynthesis.
The results demonstrate that position 133 cannot be solely responsible for the recognition of the B-ring hydroxylation pattern of dihydroflavonols. Expand
Mpe1, a Zinc Knuckle Protein, Is an Essential Component of Yeast Cleavage and Polyadenylation Factor Required for the Cleavage and Polyadenylation of mRNA
Results show that Mpe1p plays a crucial role in 3′ end formation probably by promoting the specific link between the CFI/CPF complex and pre-mRNA. Expand
Polyglycylation of tubulin: a posttranslational modification in axonemal microtubules.
A posttranslational modification was detected in the carboxyl-terminal region of axonemal tubulin from Paramecium, present in one of the most stable microtubular systems, may influence microtubule stability or axoneme function, or both. Expand
Fast screening of highly glycosylated plant sphingolipids by tandem mass spectrometry.
The structural characterization of Glycosyl-Inositol-Phospho-Ceramides (GIPCs), which are the main sphingolipids of plant tissues, is a critical step towards the understanding of their physiologicalExpand
Axonemal tubulin polyglycylation probed with two monoclonal antibodies: widespread evolutionary distribution, appearance during spermatozoan maturation and possible function in motility.
Two monoclonal antibodies, AXO 49 and TAP 952, are found to recognize differently tubulin polyglycylation, the most recently identified posttranslational modification discovered in Paramecium axonemal tubulin, and show that tubulinPolyglycylated tubulin is widely distributed in organisms ranging from ciliated protozoa to mammals.

Domain organization and structure–function relationship of the HET‐s prion protein of Podospora anserina
A domain structure–function relationship is established for Het‐s amyloid formation, prion propagation and incompatibility activity and a C‐terminal deletion in HET‐s prevents amyloids aggregation in vitro and prion propagate in vivo, and abolishes the incompatibility function. Expand
Pti1p and Ref2p found in association with the mRNA 3′ end formation complex direct snoRNA maturation
It is shown that two newly identified proteins, Pti1p and Ref2p, although they were found associated with the pre‐mRNA 3′ end processing complex, are essential for yeast snoRNA3′ end maturation and evidence that Pti 1p probably acts by uncoupling cleavage and polyadenylation, and functions in coordination with the Nrd1p‐dependent pathway for 3′end formation of non‐polyadenylated transcripts.
