An irregularly shaped, low-echoic mass measuring 21 × 18 mm was identified by ultrasound in S6. On computed tomography, the tumor appeared to be(More)
We isolated cDNA clones for novel protein kinases by expression cloning from Lotus japonicus. The LNZ001, one of the isolated clones, encodes a protein of 547 amino acids with a predicted molecular weight of 63,349. Since the protein contains 12 highly conserved subdomains specific to Ser/Thr protein kinases, we designated it PKL01. When homology searches(More)
