We characterized a gene encoding an YchF-related protein, TcYchF, potentially associated with the protein translation machinery of Trypanosoma cruzi. YchF belongs to the translation factor-related (TRAFAC) class of P-loop NTPases. The coding region of the gene is 1185bp long and encodes a 44.3kDa protein. BlastX searches showed TcYchF to be very similar(More)
We quantified fetal rat extrapancreatic insulin-gene expression by measuring mRNA in the yolk sac and placenta. Yolk sac makes a significant contribution to the total fetal insulin stores. The placenta contains a much smaller amount of insulin mRNA. Yolk sac insulin mRNA is barely detectable at 16 days gestation but increases markedly to a maximum at 21(More)
