Molecular Structure of a Functional Drosophila Centromere
Centromeres play a critical role in chromosome inheritance but are among the most difficult genomic components to analyze in multicellular eukaryotes. Here, we present a highly detailed molecularExpand

Sequence analysis of a functional Drosophila centromere.
Centromeres are the site for kinetochore formation and spindle attachment and are embedded in heterochromatin in most eukaryotes. The repeat-rich nature of heterochromatin has hindered obtaining aExpand

Evolutionary relationships among proteins in the phytohemagglutinin-arcelin-α-amylase inhibitor family of the common bean and its relatives
The common bean, Phaseolus vulgaris, contains a family of defense proteins that comprises phytohemagglutinin (PHA), arcelin, and α-amylase inhibitor (αAI). Here we report eight new derived amino acidExpand

Location of the active site of the bean alpha-amylase inhibitor and involvement of a Trp, Arg, Tyr triad.
Seeds of the common bean contain three homologous proteins: phytohaemagglutinin E, phytohaemagglutinin L and the lectin-like protein alpha-amylase inhibitor (alpha AI). Whereas the active site ofExpand
