Interferon-α-dependent Activation of Tyk2 Requires Phosphorylation of Positive Regulatory Tyrosines by Another Kinase*
Tyk2 and JAK1, members of the Janus kinase (JAK) family of protein tyrosine kinases, are required for interferon-α/β binding and signaling. Both enzymes are associated with the interferon-α/βExpand

A protein tyrosine kinase in the interferon alpha/beta signaling pathway.
The mutant human cell line 11.1 is unresponsive to interferon alpha. Here we describe the genetic complementation of this mutant and the identification and cloning of the wild-type gene that correctsExpand

Identification of highly transformable wheat genotypes for mass production of fertile transgenic plants.
The efficiency of wheat biolistic transformation systems strongly depends on the bombardment parameters, the condition of the donor plant, and the plant genotype chosen for the transformationExpand

Distinct Domains of the Protein Tyrosine Kinase tyk2 Required for Binding of Interferon-/ and for Signal Transduction *
tyk2 belongs to the JAK family of nonreceptor protein tyrosine kinases recently found implicated in signaling through a large number of cytokine receptors. These proteins are characterized by a largeExpand

Genetic variability for leaf growth rate and duration under water deficit in sunflower: analysis of responses at cell, organ, and plant level.
Plants under water deficit reduce leaf growth, thereby reducing transpiration rate at the expense of reduced photosynthesis. The objective of this work was to analyse the response of leaf growth toExpand

A method for drought tolerance screening in sunflower
One difficulty in obtaining drought-tolerant varieties is the unequivocal evaluation of plant response to soil-water deficits. A method is proposed that allows reproducible soil-water deficitExpand

Recycled Paper Products as Substitutes for Gelling Agent in Screwworm (Diptera: Calliphoridae) Larval Diet
Abstract Absorbent recycled paper products were tested and compared with a sodium polyacrylate gelling agent, Aquatain, for solidifying larval diets of the screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivoraxExpand

Transgenic wheat plants: a powerful breeding source
Plant breeders are always interested in new genetic resources. In the past, the sources have been limited to existing germplasm. Genetic engineering now provides the opportunity for almost unlimitedExpand

Biomass Allocation Patterns Are Linked to Genotypic Differences in Whole-Plant Transpiration Efficiency in Sunflower
Increased transpiration efficiency (the ratio of biomass to water transpired, TE) could lead to increased drought tolerance under some water deficit scenarios. Intrinsic (i.e., leaf-level) TE isExpand
