Isolation and characterization of human fast skeletal beta troponin T cDNA: comparative sequence analysis of isoforms and insight into the evolution of members of a multigene family.
TLDR
Comparative sequence analysis reveals that the human beta TnTf shares a high level of sequence similarity in the coding region with other vertebrate TNTf and considerably reduced similarity with slow skeletal and cardiac TnS cDNAs.
Variation in poly‐β‐hydroxybutyrate synthesis in rhizobia reflects strain differentiation and temperature regulation
TLDR
Screening of 45 strains of rhizobia, isolated from nodules of legumes inhabiting different ecological regimes, showed a wide range of variation in the PHB content; this variation is strain‐ specific and may be used as a taxonomic character for strain differentiation.
Suitability of rhizobia-inoculated wild legumes Argyrolobium flaccidum, Astragalus graveolens, Indigofera gangetica and Lespedeza stenocarpa in providing a vegetational cover in an unreclaimed
TLDR
Evidence is given that novel, suitable wild legume-Rhizobium associations are useful in providing a vegetational cover in degraded lands, and that the ecological restoration of limestone-mined sites are possible to some extent by artificial reconstruction.
Identification and mutagenesis of a highly conserved domain in troponin T responsible for troponin I binding: potential role for coiled coil interaction.
TLDR
Results indicate that the evolutionarily conserved HR motifs may play a role in TnT-TnI dimerization, presumably through the formation of alpha-helical coiled coils.
Interaction of deletion mutants of troponins I and T: COOH-terminal truncation of troponin T abolishes troponin I binding and reduces Ca2+ sensitivity of the reconstituted regulatory system.
TLDR
The results support the view that the COOH-terminal segment of TnT is necessary for binding to TnI and TnC and Ca2+ sensitivity in the thin filament, whereas its NH2-terminus strongly binds to Tm.
Impacts of Plastic Pollution on Ecosystem Services, Sustainable Development Goals, and Need to Focus on Circular Economy and Policy Interventions
Plastic pollution is ubiquitous in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Plastic waste exposed to the environment creates problems and is of significant concern for all life forms. Plastic production
