In this study we have isolated the follicle-stimulating hormone beta subunit gene from the Chinook salmon (csFSHbeta). This gene encodes for a protein that is highly similar to those isolated from other salmonids and shares all of the structural constraints seen in mammalian gonadotropins, including twelve conserved cysteines and a putative N-linked(More)
Autosomal recessive ataxias are a clinically diverse group of syndromes that in some cases are caused by mutations in genes with roles in the DNA damage response, transcriptional regulation or mitochondrial function. One of these ataxias, known as Autosomal Recessive Cerebellar Ataxia Type-2 (ARCA-2, also known as SCAR9/COQ10D4; OMIM: #612016), arises due(More)
We have examined characteristics of the binding of eukaryotic cells to chlamydial elementary body (EB)-specific proteins. A wide variety of eukaryotic cell lines bound to representatives of both Chlamydia trachomatis lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) and trachoma biovars and a C. psittaci strain meningopneumonitis (Mn) suggesting the presence of a common host(More)
