Treatment and main clinical and histopathologic features of this very unusual location of tuberculosis are discussed.
Plant subtilisin-like serine proteases or subtilases constitute a large expanded gene subfamily in potato. We identified 82 potato subtilases encoded by 74 genes. All subtilases present a characteristic S08 domain, and the majority of them have an association protein domain, an inhibition_I9 domain and a signal peptide that consists of a signal sequence for… (More)
The 70 kilodalton heat shock proteins (Hsp70) are highly conserved molecular chaperones which have a crucial role in the stress response of the cell. In mammals, the Hsp70 proteins are encoded by a cluster of three genes: HSPA1A, HSPA1B and HSPA1L. In bovines, this cluster is located on chromosome 23 downstream of the major histocompatibility complex… (More)
