BACKGROUND Several studies have shown that genomes can be studied via a multifractal formalism. Recently, we used a multifractal approach to study the genetic information content of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome. Here we investigate the possibility that the human genome shows a similar behavior to that observed in the nematode. RESULTS We report here(More)
The Caenorhabditis elegans genome has several regular and irregular characteristics in its nucleotide composition; these are observed within and between chromosomes. To study these particularities, we carried out a multifractal analysis, which requires a large number of exponents to characterize scaling properties. We looked for a relationship between the(More)
Involvement of calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaM kinase II) in regulation of GnRH release was tested by determining the effect of CaM kinase II antagonists (KN-62 or KN-93) on GnRH release from rat or cattle infundibular (stalk median eminence) explants. Preincubation of male rat infundibular explants for 30 min with KN-62 (0.5, 1, 5 or 10(More)
Environment-dependent genomic features have been defined for different metagenomes, whose genes and their associated processes are related to specific environments. Identification of ORFs and their functional categories are the most common methods for association between functional and environmental features. However, this analysis based on finding ORFs(More)
