Ferredoxin and ferredoxin-NADP+ oxidoreductase (FNR) were purified from leaves, roots, and red and green pericarp of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum, cv VFNT and cv Momotaro). Four different ferredoxins were identified on the basis of N-terminal amino acid sequence and charge. Ferredoxins I and II were the most prevalent forms in leaves and green(More)
During sulfur-limited growth, the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7942 loses most of its photosynthetic pigments and develops an increased capacity to acquire sulfate. Sulfur deprivation also triggers the synthesis of several soluble polypeptides. We have isolated a prominent polypeptide of 33 kDa that accumulates specifically under(More)
Axonal ultrastructural changes induced by three Vinca alkaloids, vincristine, vinblastine, and desacetyl vinblastine amide, were studied in vitro at concentrations of 0.01, 0.05, and 0.1 mM in the cat vagus nerve. Disruption of microtubules, appearance of paracrystalline structures, and increase in neurofilaments were induced by all three agents at 0.1 mM.(More)
Sulfur-starved cells of Anacystis nidulans have an increased capacity to take up sulfate. The apparent Vmax for sulfate uptake increased at least 10-fold after 24 h of sulfur deprivation, whereas the K1/2 remained unchanged at approximately 1.35 microM. The initial rate of sulfate uptake increased between 2 and 6 h after transfer of the cells to sulfur-free(More)
Using the cysA locus of Salmonella typhimurium as a heterologous probe, we have cloned a region of the Anacystis nidulans R2 (Synechococcus PCC 7942) genome involved in sulfate assimilation. The 8.3-kilobase-pair region encodes at least five transcripts that cannot be detected unless the cells are deprived of sulfur. One of the genes in this region has been(More)
Testicular tissue from mature male Sprague-Dawley rats was maintained in culture at 33 degrees C or 37 degrees C. Detergent-extracted proteins were separated by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) followed by staining or fluorography. Unilateral surgical cryptorchidism was performed as an in vivo model for testicular exposure to abdominal temperature.(More)
Tablets devices for student use present several advantages over laptops and desktops including portability, touch-screen features and numerous applications. However, the magnitude of apps available also presents a challenge for secondary science educators who struggle to select content-appropriate applications that support the development of science(More)
