Vitamin B12 deficiency is common in elderly persons, yet its role in dementia and psychiatric illness is unclear. The authors examined the relationship between vitamin B12 serum levels and cognitive and neuropsychiatric symptoms in dementia. Community-dwelling elderly subjects (N=643) meeting NINCDS-ADRDA criteria for probable or possible Alzheimer disease(More)
In the conventional model of the Rho-dependent transcription termination, the terminator Rho binds to the rut (Rho utilization) site and translocates along the nascent RNA prior to making possible interactions with the elongating RNA polymerase (RNAP). Even though the interaction between Rho and isolated RNAs was studied in great detail, the same has never(More)
The highly conserved Nus factors of bacteria were discovered as essential host proteins for the growth of temperate phage λ in Escherichia coli. Later, their essentiality and functions in transcription, translation, and, more recently, in DNA repair have been elucidated. Close involvement of these factors in various gene networks and circuits is also(More)
The bacterial transcription terminator, Rho, terminates transcription at half of the operons. According to the classical model derived from in vitro assays on a few terminators, Rho is recruited to the transcription elongation complex (EC) by recognizing specific sites (rut) on the nascent RNA. Here, we explored the mode of in vivo recruitment process of(More)
This study was carried out to determine if a new antibiotic combination comprising of gentamycin, tylosin and linco-spectin (GTLS) in extender is suitable for improvement in fertility of liquid buffalo bull semen through artificial insemination (AI). Two consecutive ejaculates per week (4 weeks) were collected from three Nili-Ravi buffalo bulls of known(More)
NusA is an essential protein that binds to RNA polymerase and also to the nascent RNA and influences transcription by inducing pausing and facilitating the process of transcription termination/antitermination. Its participation in Rho-dependent transcription termination has been perceived, but the molecular nature of this involvement is not known. We(More)
