We have developed a novel DNA microarray-based approach for identification of the sequence-specificity of single-stranded nucleic-acid-binding proteins (SNABPs). For verification, we have shown that the major cold shock protein (CspB) from Bacillus subtilis binds with high affinity to pyrimidine-rich sequences, with a binding preference for the consensus(More)
Electrophysiological recordings were made from Fischer rats engineered to express the human presenilin 1 gene carrying the M146V mutation. Extracellular recordings of field excitatory post-synaptic potential (EPSPs) were made to investigate EPSP properties, paired pulse responses, posttetanic potentiation, and long-term potentiation in the stratum radiatum(More)
The membrane-bound glycoprotein, amyloid precursor protein (APP), plays a central role in Alzheimer's disease (AD). The present paper investigates the neuritogenic-neurotoxic properties of this protein and relates them to possible aetiopathological mechanisms in AD. Marked differences in neuritic differentiation were detected when comparing untransfected(More)
Different ChIP-Seq protocols may have a significant impact on the final outcome in terms of quality, number and distribution of called peaks. Sample DNA undergoes a long procedure before the final sequencing step, and damaged DNA can result in excessive mismatches in the alignment with reference genome. In this letter, we present the effect of well-defined(More)
