A nomenclature for restriction enzymes, DNA methyltransferases, homing endonucleases and their genes.
A nomenclature is described for restriction endonucleases, DNA methyltransferases, homing endonucleases and related genes and gene products. It provides explicit categories for the many different
Structure of the influenza virus A H5N1 nucleoprotein: implications for RNA binding, oligomerization, and vaccine design
The study of H5N1 NP provides insight into the oligomerization interface and the RNA‐binding groove, which are attractive drug targets, and it identifies the epitopes that might be used for universal vaccine development.
Interaction between trichosanthin, a ribosome-inactivating protein, and the ribosomal stalk protein P2 by chemical shift perturbation and mutagenesis analyses
It is proposed that interaction with acidic ribosomal stalk proteins help TCS to locate its RNA substrate through forming charge–charge interactions to the conserved DDD motif at the C-terminal tail of P2.
The C-terminal fragment of the ribosomal P protein complexed to trichosanthin reveals the interaction between the ribosome-inactivating protein and the ribosome
The 2.2 Å crystal structure of trichosanthin complexed to the peptide SDDDMGFGLFD, which corresponds to the conserved C-terminal elongation factor binding domain of the ribosomal P protein, is presented, indicating that a similar interaction may also occur with other RIPs.
Identification of herbal medicinal materials using DNA barcodes
Reviewing efforts in the identification of herbal medicinal materials using the standard DNA barcodes and other DNA sequence‐based markers finds that efforts to identify herbal medicinal species and their adulterants are satisfactory.
The Influenza A Virus NS1 Protein Interacts with the Nucleoprotein of Viral Ribonucleoprotein Complexes
It is demonstrated that the NS1 protein interacts specifically with NP and not the polymerase subunits, and the region of NS1 that binds NP was mapped to the RNA-binding domain.
Authentication and quantitative analysis on the chemical profile of cassia bark (cortex cinnamomi) by high-pressure liquid chromatography.
It is suggested that five characteristic peaks by HPLC are suitable for distinguishing genuine cassia bark from the adulterants and could be applied in the quality control of this commodity.
Congruence of Molecular, Morphological, and Biochemical Profiles in Rutaceae: a Cladistic Analysis of the Subfamilies Rutoideae and Toddalioideae
The inferred phylogeny lends support to merging these two subfamilies established by Engler based on different fruit types and shows that members of Euodia sensu lato should be placed in three different genera: Tetradium, EUodia, and Melicope.
Isolation and chromosomal mapping of human glycogen synthase kinase-3 alpha and -3 beta encoding genes.
To analyse the organisation of these two genes, a YAC library was screened by polymerase chain reaction, using primers specific for human GSK-3 alpha and G SK-3 beta cDNA.
