Nitrite reductase catalyzes the reduction of nitrite to nitric oxide, the first step in denitrification to produce a gaseous product. We have cloned the gene nirK, which encodes the copper-type nitrite reductase from a denitrifying variant of Rhodobacter sphaeroides, strain 2.4.3. The deduced open reading frame has significant identity with other(More)
The homeobox transcription factor orthodenticle homolog 2 (otx2) is supposed as an organizer that orchestrates a transcription factor network during photoreceptor development. However, its regulation in the process remains unclear. In this study, we have identified a zebrafish limb bud and heart-like gene (lbh-like), which is expressed initially at 30 hours(More)
During denitrification, the production and consumption of nitric oxide (NO), an obligatory and freely diffusible intermediate, must be tightly regulated in order to prevent accumulation of this highly reactive nitrogen oxide. Sequencing upstream of norCB, the structural genes for NO reductase, in the denitrifying bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides 2.4.3, we(More)
This study was purposed to characterize the genomic distribution of the binding sites for AML1-ETO fusion protein on chromosome 2, 9 and 19, and to further gain insights into the characteristics of transcriptional regulation by AML1-ETO in acute myeloid leukemia so as to provide theoretical basis for the development of targeted therapy and optimization for(More)
This study was purposed to investigate the effect of AML1-ETO fusion protein resulted from hematopoietic transcription factor (AML1) and acute myeloid leukemia M(2b)(AML-M(2b)) on transcription activity of nucleobindin 2 (nucb2) promoter, and to explore the role of AML1-ETO in molecular pathogenesis of AML-M(2b). The real-time RT-PCR was used to study the(More)
