The DNA sequences of the alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) genes of four very closely related species of Drosophila show that the rates of nucleotide change vary greatly in different functional domains of this gene. A phylogeny of these species based on the Adh sequence data is consistent with that based on polytene chromosome banding patterns.
Schwann cells develop from multipotent neural crest stem cells and are important for neuronal survival, maintenance of axonal integrity, and myelination. We used transgenic mice expressing green fluorescent protein in a tissue-specific manner to isolate viable, pure populations of neural crest stem cells and developing Schwann cells, which are not readily(More)
Botryotinia fuckeliana, the causal agent of grey mould, was biolistically transformed to hygromycin B resistance using a plasmid (pOHT) containing a bacterial hygromycin phosphotransferase gene fused to regulatory sequences from Aspergillus nidulans. Multiple copies of the plasmid, precipitated onto tungsten particles, were delivered into the conidia by a(More)
