Mouse major urinary proteins (MUPs) are encoded by a family of about 35 to 40 highly conserved genes. In the preceding paper (K. Shahan, M. Gilmartin, and E. Derman, Mol. Cell. Biol. 7:1938-1946, 1987), we presented the sequences of the most abundant MUP mRNAs in the liver (MUP I, II, and III) and in the lachrymal (MUP IV) and submaxillary (MUP V) glands.(More)
The mouse major urinary proteins (MUPs) are encoded by a gene family of about 35 to 40 members. MUPs are synthesized in at least six secretory tissues under a variety of developmental and endocrine controls, but the identities of the individual genes expressed in each tissue have not previously been established. In this article, we present the nucleotide(More)
The major urinary proteins (MUPs) in mice are coded for by a gene family which consists of ca. 30 members. The number of MUP genes that are expressed is not known. Previous studies have shown that MUP mRNAs are present in several secretory tissues in addition to the liver, in which they were originally identified. In this paper we show, through restriction(More)
Some dynamic aspects of leaf elongation in rice were studied. Under both well watered and water-deficient conditions, leaf elongation rates were 15 to 30% greater during the day than during the night. Night temperatures below 27 C limited the rate of elongation at night but when night temperatures exceeded 27 C, night elongation rates exceeded rates during(More)
The MUP1.5b gene was previously found to be expressed specifically in the submaxillary gland and at high levels when introduced into mice as a transgene including 4.7 kb of 5'-flanking DNA and 0.3 kb of 3'-flanking DNA. To localize regulatory elements responsible for this tissue-specific pattern of expression, we tested the expression of three additional(More)
Mouse major urinary proteins (MUPs) are encoded by a family of ca. 35 genes that are expressed in a tissue-specific manner in several secretory organs; in the liver, in the submaxillary, sublingual, parotid and lachrymal glands, and in the skin sebaceous glands. In this paper we describe the isolation of a Mup gene, Mup-1.5a, which is expressed(More)
To date, two classes of mouse major urinary protein (MUP)-encoding genes have been described, the expressed genes and the intervening-sequence-containing pseudogenes. The data presented in this paper define a third class, the silent Mup genes, which are potentially functional but appear not to be expressed under normal circumstances. We describe a MUP(More)
Epileptic detection techniques rely heavily on the Electroencephalography (EEG) as representative signal carrying valuable information pertaining to the current brain state. For these techniques to be efficient and reliable, a set of discriminant, epileptic-related features has first to be obtained. Furthermore, depending on the classifier model used, a(More)
