Phylogenetic analysis of Theileria sp. from sika deer, Cervus nippon, in Japan.
The 18S rRNA genes of Theileria species detected in sika deer, Cervus nippon centralis in Yamaguchi and Cervus nippon yesoensis in Hokkaido, were analyzed. The percent identities of the nucleotideExpand

Cloning and chromosome assignment to 1q32 of a human cDNA (RAB7L1) encoding a small GTP-binding protein, a member of the RAS superfamily.
A full-length cDNA homologous to RAB7, a member of the RAB-related GTP-binding protein subfamily, was isolated from a human placenta cDNA library. This cDNA, designated RAB7L1, has an open readingExpand

Cloning, expression, and mapping of UBE2I, a novel gene encoding a human homologue of yeast ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes which are critical for regulating the cell cycle.
From a human fetal-brain cDNA library we isolated a novel gene sharing significant homology with two yeast genes, UBC9 and hus5, which encode ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme 9 (UBC9). In yeast thisExpand

Isolation and mapping of karyopherin alpha 3 (KPNA3), a human gene that is highly homologous to genes encoding Xenopus importin, yeast SRP1 and human RCH1.
From a human fetal-brain cDNA library, we isolated and characterized a novel gene (KPNA3) encoding a protein highly homologous to certain nuclear transport proteins of Xenopus and human. The completeExpand
