ID elements comprise a rodent SINE (short interspersed DNA repetitive element) family that has amplified by retroposition of a few master genes. In order to understand the important factors of SINE amplification, we investigated the transcription of rat ID elements. Three different size classes of ID transcripts, BC1, BC2 and T3, have been detected in(More)
The fusion molecule (i.e. aptazyme) of aptamer and hammerhead ribozyme was developed as in situ sensor. Previously, the hammerhead ribozyme conjugated with aptamer through its stem II module showed a significant blank signal by self-cleavage. To reduce or remove its self-cleavage activity in the absence of target molecule, rational designs were attempted by(More)
Mitochondrial forms of uracil DNA glycosylase and UV endonuclease have been purified and characterized from the mouse plasmacytoma cell line, MPC-11. As in other cell types, the mitochondrial uracil DNA glycosylase has properties very similar to those of the nuclear enzyme, although in this case the mitochondrial activity was also distinguishable by extreme(More)
Treatment of DNA containing AP sites with either T4 UV endonuclease or with E. coli endonuclease III followed by a human class II AP endonuclease releases a putative beta-elimination product. This result suggests that both the T4 endonuclease and E. coli endonuclease III class I AP endonucleases catalyze phosphodiester bond cleavage via a lyase- rather than(More)
Surface display using spores of Bacillus subtilis is widely used to anchor antigens and enzymes of different sources. One open question is whether anchored proteins are able to form disulfide bonds. To answer this important question, we anchored the Escherichia coli alkaline phosphatase PhoA on the spore surface using two different surface proteins, CotB(More)
