Photobodies in Light Signaling1
Recent developments related to photobodies are summarized and the potential functions of Photobodies in relation to light-dependent protein degradation and gene expression are discussed. Expand
Photoactivated phytochromes interact with HEMERA and promote its accumulation to establish photomorphogenesis in Arabidopsis.
It is shown that phytochromes directly interact with HMR to promote HMR protein accumulation in the light and mediates the formation of photobodies and the degradation of PIFs to establish photomorphogenesis. Expand
Catalytic-Site Mutations in the MYST Family Histone Acetyltransferase Esa1
It is proposed that the essential function of Esa1 may be to bind acetyl-CoA or lysine substrates and positively regulate the activities of NuA 4 and Piccolo NuA4, and it is shown that the double-point mutant of esa1 is lethal, demonstrating the importance of EsA1 catalytic activity for resistance to genotoxic stress.

Analysis of a diverse assemblage of diazotrophic bacteria from Spartina alterniflora using DGGE and clone library screening.
Phylogenetic analyses showed that DGGE gel band sequencing recovered nifH sequences that were frequently sampled in the GC-Library, as well as sequences that was infrequently sampled, and provided a species composition assessment that was robust, efficient, and relatively inexpensive to obtain.

Bioids : X. Identification of formose sugars, presumable prebiotic metabolites, using capillary gas chromatography/gas chromatography—mas spectrometry of n-butoxime trifluoroacetates on OV-225
Abstract Most monosaccharides, including 3-uloses and branched-chain species formed by the autocatalytic condenstation of formaldehyde, have been separated by capillary gas chromatography (GC) andExpand
Barcoding of Central European Cryptops centipedes reveals large interspecific distances with ghost lineages and new species records from Germany and Austria (Chilopoda, Scolopendromorpha)
Clear barc coding gaps are present in lineages represented by >10 specimens, highlighting the usefulness of the barcoding method for evaluating species diversity in centipedes. Expand
Millipede and centipede (Myriapoda: Diplopoda, Chilopoda) assemblages in secondary succession: variance and abundance in Western German beech and coniferous forests as compared to fallow ground
Although no clear trend in individual-count development over time occurred in most species detected, Julus scandinavius (Latzel, 1884) significantly increased in numbers with ageing of the deciduous (beech) forests, and may be a suitable bioindicator ofDeciduous-forest succession. Expand
First results of the German Barcode of Life (GBOL) – Myriapoda project: Cryptic lineages in German Stenotaenia linearis (Koch, 1835) (Chilopoda, Geophilomorpha)
The strongly different Stenotaenia linearis lineages within Germany, independent of geography, are a strong hint for the presence of additional, cryptic StenOTAenia species in Germany. Expand
Critical reflections on German Red Lists of endangered myriapod species (Chilopoda, Diplopoda) (with species list for Germany)
In the last few years great efforts have been made to assess these two groups, resulting in Red Lists of German Myriapoda, however, difficulties were encountered in strictly applying the Red List classification criteria to myriapods. Expand
The subgenus Monotarsobius in the Iberian Peninsula with a description of a new pseudo-cryptic species from Northern Spain revealed by an integrative revision of Lithobius crassipes L. Koch, 1862
Both morphological and molecular data indicate that specimens from the Navarre and Gipuzkoa provinces, northern Spain, represent a distinct pseudo-cryptic species, only differing in some minor characters from L. crassipes. Expand
