This article reviews studies of the molecular biology of the avian metallothionein (MT) genes. Analysis of cloned genes and/or cDNAs from chicken, turkey, pheasant and quail suggests that each of these species possesses a very simple MT gene family. The MT from these birds is a cysteine-rich protein of 63 amino acids that shares extensive structural(More)
Fertilization results in the tyrosine phosphorylation of several egg proteins within minutes of sperm-egg binding, although the identity of the kinase(s) involved and the mechanism of regulation is not known. In the present study, we have used site-directed antibodies based on the predicted amino acid sequence of a sea urchin egg transcript that shares(More)
Fertilization results in the activation of protein tyrosine kinases within minutes of sperm-egg binding, although the role of the kinase(s) involved is not clear. In the present study, we have treated sea urchin eggs with genistein, as well as other protein tyrosine kinase inhibitors, and have characterized the subsequent effect on fertilization and egg(More)
sures, and post-September 11 America is no exception. The New York Bill of Rights Defense Campaign (NYBORDC) is leading the grassroots movement to reject the government's claim that we must sacrifice our liberty in the name of national security. The statewide campaign is a coalition e ffort led by the NYCLU to place cities and towns all over the state on(More)
