Crystal structures of an intein from the split dnaE gene of Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 reveal the catalytic model without the penultimate histidine and the mechanism of zinc ion inhibition of protein
The first naturally occurring split intein was found in the dnaE gene of Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 and belongs to a subclass of inteins without a penultimate histidine residue. We describe twoExpand

A genetic variant c.553G > T in the apolipoprotein A5 gene is associated with an increased risk of coronary artery disease and altered triglyceride levels in a Chinese population.
Elevation in plasma triglycerides (TG) has been widely accepted as a coronary artery disease (CAD) risk predictor. Recently, a new apolipoprotein playing an important role in TG metabolism namedExpand
