Nucleocytoplasmic lectins.
This review summarizes studies on lectins that have been documented to be in the cytoplasm and nucleus of cells. Of these intracellular lectins, the most extensively studied are members of theExpand

Dynamics of galectin-3 in the nucleus and cytoplasm.
This review summarizes selected studies on galectin-3 (Gal3) as an example of the dynamic behavior of a carbohydrate-binding protein in the cytoplasm and nucleus of cells. Within the 15-memberExpand

What Are They Thinking? Automated Analysis of Student Writing about Acid–Base Chemistry in Introductory Biology
Students’ writing can provide better insight into their thinking than can multiple-choice questions. However, resource constraints often prevent faculty from using writing assessments in largeExpand

SR proteins and galectins: what's in a name?
Although members of the serine (S)- and arginine (R)-rich splicing factor family (SR proteins) were initially purified on the basis of their splicing activity in the nucleus, there is recentExpand

Examining the Impact of Question Surface Features on Students’ Answers to Constructed-Response Questions on Photosynthesis
One challenge in science education assessment is that students often focus on question surface features rather than the underlying scientific principles. The authors investigated how studentExpand

A mechanism for incorporation of galectin-3 into the spliceosome through its association with U1 snRNP.
Previously, we showed that galectin-1 and galectin-3 are redundant pre-mRNA splicing factors associated with the spliceosome throughout the splicing pathway. Here we present evidence for theExpand

Examination of the role of galectins in pre-mRNA splicing.
Several lines of evidence have been accumulated to indicate that galectin-1 and galectin-3 are two of the many proteins involved in nuclear splicing of pre-mRNA. First, nuclear extracts, capable ofExpand

Harnessing Technology to Improve Formative Assessment of Student Conceptions in STEM: Forging a National Network
Concept inventories, consisting of multiple-choice questions designed around common student misconceptions, are designed to reveal student thinking. However, students often have complex,Expand

Inhibition of Cell-Free Splicing by Saccharides That Bind Galectins and SR Proteins
The carbohydrate-binding proteins galectin-1 and galectin-3 are found in the nucleus of cells. Using a cell-free assay, depletion and reconstitution experiments have documented that these twoExpand

Beyond multiple choice exams: Using computerized lexical analysis to understand students' conceptual reasoning in STEM disciplines
Constructed response questions - in which students must use their own language in order to explain a phenomenon - create more meaningful opportunities for instructors to identify their students'Expand
