The origin of man: a chromosomal pictorial legacy.
Man, gorilla, and chimpanzee likely shared an ancestor in whom the fine genetic organization of chromosomes was similar to that of present man. A comparative analysis of high-resolution chromosomesExpand

Identification and Functional Characterization of Three Chicken Cathelicidins with Potent Antimicrobial Activity*
Cathelicidins comprise a family of antimicrobial peptides sharing a highly conserved cathelin domain. Here we report that the entire chicken genome encodes three cathelicidins, namely fowlicidin-1 toExpand

Fowlicidin‐3 is an α‐helical cationic host defense peptide with potent antibacterial and lipopolysaccharide‐neutralizing activities
Cathelicidins are an important family of cationic host defense peptides in vertebrates with both antimicrobial and immunomodulatory activities. Fowlicidin‐1 and fowlicidin‐2 are two newly identifiedExpand

Characterization and inhibition of norovirus proteases of genogroups I and II using a fluorescence resonance energy transfer assay
Abstract Noroviruses are the major cause of food- or water-borne gastroenteritis outbreaks in humans. The norovirus protease that cleaves a large viral polyprotein to nonstructural proteins isExpand

Active transport of biotin in Escherichia coli K-12.
The transport of [(14)C]biotin into cells of a biotin prototroph, Escherichia coli K-12 strain Y10-1, was investigated. The vitamin taken up by the cells in this strain existed primarily in the freeExpand

Structure–activity relationships of fowlicidin‐1, a cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide in chicken
Cationic antimicrobial peptides are naturally occurring antibiotics that are actively being explored as a new class of anti‐infective agents. We recently identified three cathelicidin antimicrobialExpand

Biotinyl 5'-adenylate: corepressor role in the regulation of the biotin genes of Escherichia coli K-12.
A DNA filter-binding technique was used to study the interaction of the biotin repressor and operator site. From a biotin saturation curve, the concentration for half-maximal binding (K0.5) wasExpand
