Two genes encoding histone H4 (H4.1 and H4.2) from Penicillium funiculosum have been cloned and characterised. Structurally, the histone H4.1 gene is divergently linked to the histone H3 gene and the two genes are separated by approximately 800 bp. The transcription of the histone H4.1 and H4.2 genes in P. funiculosum appears to be distinctively regulated.(More)
Evidence for shellfish toxin illness in British Columbia (BC) on the west coast of Canada can be traced back to 1793. For over two hundred years, domestically acquired bivalve shellfish toxin illnesses in BC were solely ascribed to paralytic shellfish poisonings caused by algal blooms of Alexandrium. This changed in 2011, when BC experienced its first(More)
We present the first long-term optical and in-frared study of the optical counterpart to the source RX J0812.4–3114, an X-ray pulsar with a Be type companion. During the period covered by the observations the profile of some Balmer lines changed from absorption to emission and back again to absorption. Contemporaneously, the in-frared magnitudes varied by(More)
Coherent 65 mHz pulsations in the X-ray Ñux of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) transient source RX J0052.1[7319 have been detected by us in an analysis of ROSAT data. We report on the pulsations we detected in ROSAT HRI data and simultaneous detection of these pulses in hard X-rays using BATSE data. The BATSE data show an outburst of the source lasting 60(More)
The observed characteristics of the nebulosity surrounding the SMC High Mass X-ray Binary XTE J0111.2-7317 are examined in the context of three possible nebular types: SNR, bowshock and HII region. Observational evidence is presented which appears to support the interpretation that the nebulosity surrounding XTE J0111.2-7317 is an HII region. The source(More)
We report optical and IR observations of the ASCA X-ray pulsar system AX J0051-733. The relationship between the X-ray source and possible optical counterparts is discussed. Long term optical data from over 7 years are presented which reveal both a 1.4d modulation and an unusually rapid change in this possible binary period. Various models are discussed.
We report observations which confirm the identities of the optical counterpart to the transient sources RX J0544.1-7100 and RX J0520.5-6932. The counterparts are suggested to be a B-type stars. Optical data from the observations carried out at ESO and SAAO, together with results from the OGLE data base, are presented. In addition, X-ray data from the RXTE(More)
