Mutations at the rug5 (rugosus5) locus have been used to elucidate the role of the major soluble isoform of starch synthase II (SSII) in amylopectin synthesis in the developing pea embryo. The SSII gene maps to the rug5 locus, and the gene in one of three rug5 mutant lines has been shown to carry a base pair substitution that introduces a stop codon into(More)
Through chemical contamination of natural environments, microbial communities are exposed to many different types of chemical stressors; however, research on whole-genome responses to this contaminant stress is limited. This study examined the transcriptome response of a common soil bacterium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, to the common environmental contaminant(More)
The subcellular location of activity and protein of ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (AGPase) in developing tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) fruit was determined following a report that the enzyme might be present inside and outside the plastids in this organ. Plastids prepared from crude homogenates of columella and pericarp, the starch-accumulating tissues(More)
Carbetimer (Polima TM, NED-137, carboxyimamedate) is a synthetic low molecular weight imide/ amide derivative of a precursor copolymer of ethylene and maleic anahydride [1]. Preclinical in vivo screening has demonstrated activity in several tumor models including Lewis Lung carcinoma, B16 melanoma, and Madison 109 Lung carcinoma [1]. Antitumor activity has(More)
OBJECTIVE To model the benefit of an innovative measure to manage patients with diabetes and a foot ulcer, or at high risk of ulceration, using a soft-heel casting, which can be applied by a podiatrist or other trained staff member and used in the hospital or community setting. METHOD An audit of the patient outcomes associated with the casting at NHS(More)
