Genetic organization of Drosophila bithorax complex
The Drosophila bithorax complex is subdivided into three major genes: Ultrabithorax+, abdominal-A+ and Abdominal-B+. Each of these genes plays its principal part in a particular anatomical domain ofExpand

The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of the crustacean Artemia franciscana
The complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence of the brine shrimp Artemia franciscana has been determined. It extends the present knowledge of mitochondrial genomes to the crustacean class andExpand

Genomic organization and developmental pattern of expression of the engrailed gene from the brine shrimp Artemia.
We report the isolation and characterization of an engrailed gene in the crustacean Artemia franciscana. The Artemia gene spans a genomic region of 15 kilobases and the coding sequence is interruptedExpand

Mitochondrial DNA remains intact during Drosophila aging, but the levels of mitochondrial transcripts are significantly reduced.
It has been suggested that mutations accumulated in mitochondrial DNA during the aging process may be causally related to the decreased physiological response of the senescent organisms. We haveExpand

Speciation in the Artemia genus: Mitochondrial DNA analysis of bisexual and parthenogenetic brine shrimps
From the cloned mitochondrial DNAs (mtDNAs) isolated from two bisexual species, one Mediterranean, Artemia salina, and one American, Artemia franciscana, and two parthenogenetic (diploid andExpand

Autophosphorylating protein kinase activity in titin-like arthropod projectin.
The function of the high molecular weight structural proteins from muscle, namely vertebrate titin, arthropod projectin and nematode twitchin, remains to be established. Using a simple method for theExpand

Differential muscle-type expression of the Drosophila troponin T gene. A 3-base pair microexon is involved in visceral and adult hypodermic muscle specification.
The complete genomic organization of the Drosophila troponin T (TnT) gene shows many interesting features, including the presence of a microexon of only 3 nucleotides conserved among Drosophilidae.Expand

A conserved heptamer motif for ribosomal RNA transcription termination in animal mitochondria.
A search of sequence data bases for a tridecamer transcription termination signal, previously described in human mtDNA as being responsible for the accumulation of mitochondrial ribosomal RNAsExpand

Troponin-T is a calcium-binding protein in insect muscle: in vivo phosphorylation, muscle-specific isoforms and developmental profile in Drosophila melanogaster
Two sets of muscle polypeptides showing calcium-binding capacity and intense labelling in vivo with 32P were purified and characterized from Drosophila melanogaster adult extracts. The polypeptidesExpand
