Tudor domain-containing proteins (Tudor proteins), which recognize and bind to methyl-arginine ⁄ lysine residues, play important roles in diverse epigenetics, gene expression and the regulation of various small RNAs. Using the complete set of 23 Tudor proteins from Drosophila, together with the available functional information, we propose a putative link(More)
The origin of eukaryotic ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes (E2s) can be traced back to the Guillardia theta nucleomorph about 2500 million years ago (Mya). E2s are largely vertically inherited over eukaryotic evolution [Lespinet, O., Wolf, Y.I., Koonin, E.V., Aravind, L., 2002. The role of lineage-specific gene family expansion in the evolution of eukaryotes.(More)
The gms gene of Chinese cabbage (Brassica campestris ssp. chinensis) conferring a recessivegenic male sterility was mapped with AFLPmarkers. Four markers were found to betightly linked to the gene with a distanceof <1 cM using a mapping population of327 individuals. The AFLPs were cloned andsequenced. Sequence derived primers yieldedclearly distinguishable(More)
Using a complete set of RING domains from Drosophila melanogaster, all the solved RING domains and cocrystal structures of RING-containing ubiquitin-ligases (RING-E3) and ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (E2) pairs, we analyzed RING domains structures from their primary to quarternary structures. The results showed that: i) putative orthologs of RING domains(More)
Genome-wide comparisons across 10 species from algae Guillardia theta to mammal human indicated that Caenorhabditis elegans and Caenorhabditis briggsae were highly enriched for glycine-rich secreted peptides (GRSPs) (110 GRSPs in C. elegans and 93 in C. briggsae) in this study. Chromosomal mapping showed that most GRSPs were clustered on the two nematode(More)
