- Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
- 17 October 2006
Phylogenetic relationships among the four major lineages of land plants (liverworts, mosses, hornworts, and vascular plants) remain vigorously contested; their resolution is essential to our… Expand
A NONFLOWERING LAND PLANT PHYLOGENY INFERRED FROM NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCES OF SEVEN CHLOROPLAST, MITOCHONDRIAL, AND NUCLEAR GENES
Nucleotide sequences of seven chloroplast (atpB and rbcL, SSU and LSU rDNAs), mitochondrial (atp1, LSU rDNA), and nuclear (18S rDNA) genes from 192 land plants and their algal relatives were analyzed… Expand
Client and program factors associated with dropout from court mandated drug treatment.
To examine why court mandated offenders dropout of drug treatment and to compare their characteristics, treatment experiences, perceptions, and outcomes with treatment completers, we analyzed… Expand
The Mitochondrial Genomes of the Early Land Plants Treubia lacunosa and Anomodon rugelii: Dynamic and Conservative Evolution
Early land plant mitochondrial genomes captured important changes of mitochondrial genome evolution when plants colonized land. The chondromes of seed plants show several derived characteristics,… Expand
Multiple Shh signaling centers participate in fungiform papilla and taste bud formation and maintenance.
- H. Liu, A. Ermilov, +4 authors Charalotte M Mistretta
- Biology, Medicine
- Developmental biology
- 1 October 2013
The adult fungiform taste papilla is a complex of specialized cell types residing in the stratified squamous tongue epithelium. This unique sensory organ includes taste buds, papilla epithelium and… Expand
The Complete Mitochondrial Genome Sequence of the Hornwort Megacerosaenigmaticus Shows a Mixed Mode of Conservative Yet Dynamic Evolution in Early Land Plant Mitochondrial Genomes
Land plants possess some of the most unusual mitochondrial genomes among eukaryotes. However, in early land plants these genomes resemble those of green and red algae or early eukaryotes. The… Expand
The Mitochondrial Genome of the Lycophyte Huperzia squarrosa: The Most Archaic Form in Vascular Plants
Mitochondrial genomes have maintained some bacterial features despite their residence within eukaryotic cells for approximately two billion years. One of these features is the frequent presence of… Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the hornwort Phaeoceros laevis: retention of many ancient pseudogenes and conservative evolution of mitochondrial genomes in hornworts
Plants have large and complex mitochondrial genomes in comparison to other eukaryotes. In bryophytes, the mitochondrial genomes exhibit a mixed mode of conservative and dynamic evolution. Here, we… Expand
Is arginine charged in a membrane?
- Libo Li, I. Vorobyov, Alexander D. MacKerell, T. Allen
- Medicine, Chemistry
- Biophysical journal
- 15 January 2008
"Charged" amino acids play countless important roles in protein structure and function. Yet when these side chains come into contact with membranes we do not fully understand their behavior. This is… Expand
The role of membrane thickness in charged protein-lipid interactions.
Charged amino acids are known to be important in controlling the actions of integral and peripheral membrane proteins and cell disrupting peptides. Atomistic molecular dynamics studies have shed much… Expand
