In Xenopus laevis, three nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK) monomers have been described (NDPK X1, X2 and X3) (Ouatas et al., 1997). In eucaryotes, this kinase is known as a hetero- or homohexamer. Here, we examine the distribution of the enzyme and its different subunit mRNAs during oogenesis and early embryogenesis of Xenopus laevis, respectively by(More)
A NanoSIMS ion microprobe was used to map the submicron-scale distributions of carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, silicon, and oxygen in organic microfossils and laminae in a thin section of the approximately 0.85 billion year old Bitter Springs Formation of Australia. The data provide clues about the original chemistry of the microfossils, the silicification(More)
To investigate the molecular mechanisms regulating c-myc RNA stability during late amphibian oogenesis, a heterologous system was used in which synthetic Xenopus laevis c-myc transcripts, progressively deleted from their 3' end, were injected into the cytoplasm of two different host axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) cells: stage VI oocytes and(More)
The speciation of uranium was studied in the mill tailings of the Gunnar uranium mine (Saskatchewan, Canada), which operated in the 1950s and 1960s. The nature, quantification, and spatial distribution of uranium-bearing phases were investigated by chemical and mineralogical analyses, fission track mapping, electron microscopy, and X-ray absorption near(More)
