Genomic organization of 251 kDa acetyl-CoA carboxylase genes in Arabidopsis: tandem gene duplication has made two differentially expressed isozymes.
Acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACCase) catalyzes the carboxylation of acetyl-CoA, forming malonyl-CoA a key intermediate in the biosynthesis of fatty acids and a variety of secondary metabolites. Based uponExpand

Polyanionic stretch‐deleted histone chaperone cia1/Asf1p is functional both in vivo and in vitro
Background: CIA, an interactor of the CCG1 histone acetyltransferase subunit of TFIID, was identified as a human histone chaperone. The Saccharomyces cerevisiae orthologue ASF1, when it wasExpand

Association between adult-onset Still's disease and interleukin-18 gene polymorphisms
Recently, we reported that serum concentration of IL-18 is strikingly high in patients with adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD). The aim of the present study was to screen for genetic polymorphisms inExpand
