We recently isolated and characterized a novel member of the winged helix (formerly HNF-3/Forkhead) transcriptional regulatory family, termed Genesis. Genesis was found to be a transcriptional repressor expressed almost exclusively in embryonic stem cells or embryonal carcinoma cells. This expression rapidly declined when these cells were stimulated to(More)
All animal cells utilize a specialized set of cytoskeletal proteins to determine their overall shape and the organization of their intracellular compartments and organelles. During embryonic development, the dynamic nature of the actin cytoskeleton is critical for virtually all morphogenic events requiring changes in cell shape, migration, adhesion, and(More)
Embryonic neurons were cultured from transgenic Drosophila melanogaster expressing a highly specific pseudosubstrate inhibitor of protein kinase C (PKC). Flies homozygous for this transgene, which is under the control of the yeast UAS promoter, were crossed to flies homozygous for the yeast heat shock inducible transcription factor GAL 4. Following heat(More)
Transgenic Drosophila strains expressing an inhibitory peptide of Ca2+/calmodulin dependent protein kinase II (CaM kinase), or a constitutively activated CaM kinase, show altered neuronal process morphology compared to wild type in scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of cultured mature neurons from embryonic neuroblasts. We observed significantly enhanced(More)
Bacteria belonging to the family Acidimicrobiaceae are frequently encountered in heavy metal-contaminated acidic environments. However, their phylogenetic and metabolic diversity is poorly resolved. We present draft genome sequences of two novel and phylogenetically distinct Acidimicrobiaceae members assembled from an acid mine drainage biofilm metagenome.
