Null mutations of the Caenorhabditis elegans unc-22 gene cause a pronounced body surface twitch associated with impaired movement and disruption of muscle structure. Partial sequence analysis of unc-22 has previously revealed that its encoded polypeptide, named twitchin, consists of a single protein kinase domain and multiple copies of both an(More)
Ectopic recombination in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been investigated by examining the effects of mutations known to alter allelic recombination frequencies. A haploid yeast strain disomic for chromosome III was constructed in which allelic recombination can be monitored using leu2 heteroalleles on chromosome III and ectopic recombination can be(More)
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae LYS2 gene, which encodes alpha-aminoadipate reductase, an essential enzyme in the yeast lysine biosynthetic pathway, has been sequenced. A large open reading frame (ORF) has been identified which can specify a 1392-amino acid protein with a deduced Mr of 155,344. A DNA database search using the translated LYS2 ORF as a probe has(More)
People can have experiences through video calls that are otherwise inaccessible. For example, someone who cannot leave the home may wish to experience visiting the zoo. We present TeleTourist, a system that uses video calls with strangers to share experiences for people with mobility restrictions. We designed TeleTourist to enhance immersion and(More)
