Defects in mitochondrial ribosomal proteins (MRPs) cause various diseases in humans. Because of the essential role of MRPs in synthesizing the essential subunits of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) complexes, identifying all of the protein components involved in the mitochondrial translational machinery is critical. Initially, we identified 79 MRPs;(More)
This study investigated the reactive oxygen species (ROS) tolerance mechanism of a paraquat-resistant Pisum sativum line (R3-1) compared with the wild type (WT). Physiological and biochemical analyses showed significant differences in the phenotypes, such as delayed leaf and floral development, superior branching, and greater biomass and yields in the R3-1(More)
In plants, the oxygen generated by photosynthesis can be excited to form reactive oxygen species (ROS) under excessive sunlight. Excess ROS including singlet oxygen (1O2) inhibit the growth, development and photosynthesis of plants. To isolate ROS-resistant crop plants, we used paraquat (PQ), a generator of O2 ·− as a source of screening and mutagen, and(More)
The apparent dielectric constant, ε, of the hydrophobic pyrene binding sites in erythroid spectrin and human serum albumin (HSA) were estimated using the linear relationship [Turro, N.J., Kuo, P.L., Somasundaran, P. and Wong, K. (1986). J. Phys. Chem. 90, 288–291] between the ratio of the first (373 nm) and the third (384 nm) vibronic peak intensities(More)
Mammalian mitochondrial initiation factor 3 (IF3(mt)) has a central region with homology to bacterial IF3. This homology region is preceded by an N-terminal extension and followed by a C-terminal extension. The role of these extensions on the binding of IF3(mt) to mitochondrial small ribosomal subunits (28S) was studied using derivatives in which the(More)
Speech recognition and speaker identification are important for authentication and verification in security purpose, but they are difficult to achieve. Speaker identification methods can be divided into text-independent and text-dependent. This paper presents a technique of text-dependent speaker identification using MFCC-domain support vector machine(More)
