The cell envelope structure of the lipopolysaccharide-lacking gram-negative bacterium Sphingomonas paucimobilis.
From the cell envelope preparation of Sphingomonas paucimobilis two membrane fractions with different densities were separated by sucrose density gradient ultracentrifugation. The high-densityExpand
Molecular evidence of sorbitol dehydrogenase in tomato, a non-Rosaceae plant.
The enzyme NAD-dependent sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH) is well characterized in the Rosaceae family of fruit trees, which synthesizes sorbitol as a translocatable photosynthate. Expressed sequenceExpand
Expression analysis of the auxin efflux carrier family in tomato fruit development
Auxin transport network, which is important in the integration of plant developmental signals, depends on differential expression of the auxin efflux carrier PIN gene family. We cloned three tomatoExpand
Lactacystin, a novel microbial metabolite, induces neuritogenesis of neuroblastoma cells.
Chronological observations of feather pulp lesions in chickens inoculated with Marek's disease virus.
Observations of the feather pulp from chickens inoculated with Marek's disease (MD) virus revealed diverse lesions similar to those in the peripheral nerves of chickens infected with MD. TheseExpand
Effect of 50 kilobase-plasmid, pKDSC50, of Salmonella choleraesuis RF-1 strain on pig septicemia.
Salmonella choleraesuis strains with and without 50-kilobase plasmid (pKDSC50) were intravenously inoculated into Yorkshire pigs. By the inoculation of 7.2 x 10(5) - 3.5 x 10(7) cells, RF-1 strainExpand
Chronological observations of Marek's disease-associated feather-pulp lesions in field chickens.
Fourteen test groups consisting of a total of 541 field chickens in six rearing farms, all of which were vaccinated with turkey herpesvirus at one day old, were investigated for chronological changesExpand
Reduction of Plant-Specific Arabinogalactan-Type O-Glycosylation by Treating Tobacco Plants with Ferrous Chelator 2,2′-Dipyridyl
Plant specific O-glycosylation of proteins includes the attachment of arabinogalactan to hydroxyproline (Hyp) residues. These Hyp residues are generated from peptidyl proline residues by the actionExpand
Effects of Low Temperature and Abscisic Acid on the Expression of the Sorbitol-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase Gene in Apple Leaves
Sorbitol-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (S6PDH) is known to be a key enzyme in the biosynthesis of sorbitol, an early product of photosynthesis, common to fruit trees of the Rosaceae family. Effects ofExpand
Analysis of telomere lengths in apple and cherry trees
Telomeres are specialized nucleoprotein structures located at the ends of linear eukaryotic chromosomes. Because telomeres shorten with successive cell divisions in normal human somatic cellsExpand
