Previous studies have demonstrated that efficient splicing of the primary transcript of the yeast MER2 gene requires the MER1 protein, which is produced only in meiotic cells. A genetic selection was devised to recover second-site mutations that bypass the requirement for MER1 in MER2 RNA-splicing. This selection identified a mutation in SNR19, the gene for(More)
In many land plants, the stomatal pore opens during the day and closes during the night. Thus, periods of darkness could be effective in decreasing pathogen penetration into leaves through stomata, the primary sites for infection by many pathogens. Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato (Pst) DC3000 produces coronatine (COR) and opens stomata, raising an(More)
Human integrase interactor 1 (INI1/SMARCB1/SNF5) is a chromatin-remodeling molecule that binds to HIV-1 integrase and enhances proviral DNA integration. INI1 is also known as a tumor suppressor gene and has been found to be mutated in several aggressive tumors such as rhabdoid and lymphoid tumors. To study the function of simian INI1, we screened and cloned(More)
