Protein-DNA interactions in the proximal region of an Arabidopsis H4 histone gene promoter were analyzed by DMS in vivo footprinting combined with LMPCR amplification. Interactions were identified over six particular sequence motifs, five of which were previously shown to bind proteins in maize histone H3 and H4 promoters and are commonly found in the(More)
Protein-DNA interactions in the promoter regions of two maize histone genes have been analyzed by DNase I and DMS in vivo footprinting combined with LMPCR amplification. Both promoters present a bimodular structure characterized by a proximal cell division-specific set of interactions and a distal region which displays constitutive footprints but(More)
A fast and quantitative method was developed to detect transgenic "Maximizer" maize "event 176" (Novartis) and "Roundup Ready" soybean (Monsanto) in food by real-time quantitative PCR. The use of the ABI Prism 7700 sequence detection system allowed the determination of the amplified product accumulation through a fluorogenic probe (TaqMan). Fluorescent dyes(More)
Modern lager brewing yeasts used in beer production are hybrid strains consisting of at least two different genomes. To obtain information on the identity of the parental strains that gave rise to industrial lager yeasts, we used two-dimensional (2-D) gel electrophoresis and analysed the proteomes of different Saccharomyces species isolated from breweries.(More)
In order to study meiotic segregation of chromosome length polymorphism in yeast, we analysed the progeny of a cross involving two laboratory strains FL100trp and YNN295. Analysis of the parental strains led us to detect an important length polymorphism of chromosomes I and III in FL100trp. A reciprocal translocation involving 80 kb of the left arm of(More)
We have studied the meiotic segregation of a chromosome length polymorphism (CLP) in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The neopolymorphism frequently observed within the smallest chromosomes (I, VI, III and IX) is not completely understood. We focused on the analysis of the structure of chromosome I in 88 segregants from a cross between YNN295 and(More)
A fast, sensitive, and target contaminant-modulable method was developed to detect viable bacteria, molds, and yeasts after heat treatment. By reverse transcriptase PCR with elongation factor gene (EF-Tu or EF-1 alpha)-specific primers, the detection level was 10 cells ml of milk-1. The simplicity and rapidity (4 h) of the procedure suggests that this(More)
