Determination and physiological roles of the glycosylphosphatidylinositol lipid remodelling pathway in yeast
In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)‐anchored proteins play important roles in cell wall biogenesis/assembly and the formation of lipid microdomains. The lipidExpand

Epstein-Barr virus replicative gene transcription during de novo infection of human thymocytes: simultaneous early expression of BZLF-1 and its repressor RAZ.
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is known to infect B cells and epithelial cells. We and others have shown that EBV can also infect a subset of thymocytes. Infection of thymocytes was accompanied by theExpand

Deletion analysis of the enolase gene (enoA) promoter from the filamentous fungus Aspergillus oryzae
Abstract. The enolase gene (enoA) is one of the most strongly expressed genes in Aspergillus oryzae. To elucidate the transcription regulatory element for this strong expression and the process ofExpand

Polyhydroxybutyrate production from carbon dioxide by cyanobacteria
Genetic characterization and enhancement of polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) accumulation in cyanobacteria were investigated for efficient PHB production from CO2. The genome DNAs in the PHB-accumulatingExpand
