The fundamental repeating unit of eukaryotic chromatin is the nucleosome. Besides being involved in packaging DNA, nucleosome organization plays an important role in transcriptional regulation and cellular identity. Currently, there is much debate about the major determinants of the nucleosome architecture of a genome and its significance with little being(More)
Deciphering the multitude of epigenomic and genomic factors that influence the mutation rate is an area of great interest in modern biology. Recently, chromatin has been shown to play a part in this process. To elucidate this relationship further, we integrated our own ultra-deep sequenced human nucleosomal DNA data set with a host of published human(More)
The phospholipid (PL) requirement in fish is revealed by enhanced performance when larvae are provided PL-enriched diets. To elucidate the molecular mechanism underlying PL requirement in Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar, were fed a minimal PL diet and tissue samples from major lipid metabolic sites were dissected from fry and parr. In silico analysis and(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic joint disease characterized by pain and stiffness. Recently, there has been great interest in the use of plant-derived compounds and supplements in managing the symptoms of OA. Arthrocen is a plant-based supplement consisting of avocado and soy unsaponifiable extracts in a 1 : 2 ratio. In an effort to unravel the potential(More)
