A total of 74 actinomycete isolates were cultivated from two marine sponges, Geodia barretti and Phakellia ventilabrum collected at the same spot at the bottom of the Trondheim fjord (Norway). Phylogenetic analyses of sponge-associated actinomycetes based on the 16S rRNA gene sequences demonstrated the presence of species belonging to the genera(More)
The reduced representation bisulfite sequencing (RRBS) method has been developed for the high-throughput analysis of DNA methylation based on the sequencing of genomic libraries treated with sodium bisulfite by next-generation approaches. In contrast to whole-genome sequencing, the RRBS approach elaborates specific endonucleases to prepare libraries in(More)
Protein phosphorylation plays central regulatory roles in DNA damage repair and signaling. Protein kinases of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase-related kinase family ATM, ATR, and DNA-PKcs mediate phosphorylation of hundreds of substrates after DNA damage and thereby orchestrate the cellular response to DNA damage. Protein phosphorylation can be studied(More)
Signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs) are latent, cytoplasmic transcription factors. Janus kinases (JAKs) and activated CDC42-associated kinase-1 (ACK1/TNK2) catalyse the phosphorylation of STAT1 and the expression of its target genes. Here we demonstrate that catalytically active ACK1 promotes the phosphorylation and nuclear(More)
AIM To develop a reduced representation bisulfite sequencing (RRBS) approach for rapid and affordable genome-wide DNA methylation analysis. METHODS We have selected restriction endonuclease XmaI to produce RRBS library fragments. After digestion and partial fill-in DNA fragments were ligated to barcoded adapters, bisulfite converted, size-selected, and(More)
