Recently, a group of diplomonads has been found to use a genetic code in which TAA and TAG encode glutamine rather than termination. To survey the distribution of this characteristic in diplomonads, we sought to identify TAA and TAG codons at positions where glutamine is expected in genes for alpha-tubulin, elongation factor-1 alpha, and the gamma subunit(More)
of polysaccharides are synthesized in plastids by similar enzymes using ADP-glucose as a substrate. The storage polysaccharide is usually defined as a mix of two distinct Alain Bulé on § , Paul Colonna § , and Jack Preiss fractions: amylopectin and amylose. Amylopectin is by *Laboratoire de Chimie Biologique far the major compound. It is of very high(More)
Organ-specific antibodies are found in patients with autoimmune disease and their symptom-free relatives many years before clinical onset. Organ-specific cardiac antibodies can be found in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and their relatives, which supports the idea that DCM is an autoimmune disease. We did non-invasive cardiological assessment(More)
