Both IgM and IgG anti-DNA antibodies are the products of clonally selective B cell stimulation in (NZB x NZW)F1 mice
Disease activity in systemic lupus erythematosus is closely associated with the appearance of immunoglobulin (Ig)G antibody to native DNA in both humans and mice. Like normal antibody responses, theExpand

Genetic Evidence for Function of the bHLH-PAS Protein Gce/Met As a Juvenile Hormone Receptor
Juvenile hormones (JHs) play a major role in controlling development and reproduction in insects and other arthropods. Synthetic JH-mimicking compounds such as methoprene are employed as potentExpand

Transient transcriptional events in human skeletal muscle at the outset of concentric resistance exercise training.
We sought to ascertain the time course of transcriptional events that occur in human skeletal muscle at the outset of resistance exercise (RE) training in RE naive individuals and determine whetherExpand

Ligand binding by recombinant domains from insect ecdysone receptors.
The ligand binding domains (LBDs) from the EcR and USP proteins of four insect pests (Lucilia cuprina, Myzus persicae, Bemisia tabaci, Helicoverpa armigera) were purified as recombinant heterodimers.Expand

Stimulation of thrombopoiesis in mice by human recombinant interleukin 6.
To date, testing of various cytokines for the stimulation of blood cell production has not demonstrated a consistent effect on peripheral platelet levels. In this report, we provide evidence thatExpand

LcUSP, an ultraspiracle gene from the sheep blowfly, Lucilia cuprina: cDNA cloning, developmental expression of RNA and confirmation of function.
A DNA sequence corresponding to most of the DNA-binding domain of a Lucilia cuprina ultraspiracle protein (LcUSP) was amplified by PCR from genomic DNA and cloned. This cloned fragment was used toExpand

Pristionchus pacificus, a nematode with only three juvenile stages, displays major heterochronic changes relative to Caenorhabditis elegans
The nematode Pristionchus pacificus (Diplogastridae) has been described as a satellite organism for a functional comparative approach to the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans because genetic,Expand

B-chromosome systems in the greater glider, Petauroides volans (Marsupialia: Pseudocheiridae). II. Investigation of B-chromosome DNA sequences isolated by micromanipulation and PCR.
B chromosomes, despite their common occurrence throughout the animal and plant kingdoms, have not been investigated extensively at the molecular level. While the majority of B chromosomes occurringExpand

Mutation in the structural gene for seryl-transfer ribonucleic acid synthetase of Escherichia coli which affects formation of its gene product at high temperature.
The rate of formation of seryl-transfer ribonucleic acid (tRNA) synthetase activity was temperature dependent in a temperature-sensitive mutant of Escherichia coli (K28) with an altered seryl-tRNAExpand
