N-acetylated alpha-linked acidic dipeptidase (NAALADase) hydrolyzes acidic peptides, such as the abundant neuropeptide N-acetyl-alpha-L-aspartyl-L-glutamate (NAAG), thereby generating glutamate. Previous cDNA cloning efforts have identified a candidate rat brain NAALADase partial cDNA, and Northern analyses have identified a family of related RNA species(More)
Given the importance of nitrogen for plant growth and the environmental costs of intense fertilization, an understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the root adaptation to nitrogen fluctuations is a primary goal for the development of biotechnological tools for sustainable agriculture. This research aimed to identify the molecular factors(More)
In this article, we are concerned with the role of colors in reading written texts. It has been argued that colored overlays applied above written texts positively influence both reading fluency and reading speed. These effects would be particularly evident for those individuals affected by the so called Meares-Irlen syndrome, i.e., who experience eyestrain(More)
