A 45-kDa membrane polypeptide that is associated with activity of the particulate methane monooxygenase (pMMO) has been purified from three methanotrophic bacteria, and the N-terminal amino acid sequence was found to be identical in 17 of 20 positions for all three polypeptides and identical in 14 of 20 positions for the N terminus of AmoB, the 43-kDa(More)
The nucleotide sequence of the DNA genome of Cydia pomonella granulovirus (CpGV) was determined and analysed. The genome is composed of 123500 bp and has a G+C content of 45.2%. It contains 143 ORFs of 150 nucleotides or more that show minimal overlap. One-hundred-and-eighteen (82.5%) of these putative genes are homologous to genes previously identified in(More)
We have investigated the action of ciguatoxin (CTX) in the mouse following i.p. administration. CTX (0.5 mouse units) induced a rapid (10-20 min) decrease in body temperature that persisted for several hours. This corresponded closely with a neuroexcitatory action of ciguatoxin on c-fos mRNA in the brain. We identified the neuronal pathways activated by CTX(More)
We have investigated the action of domoic acid in the mouse brain following systemic exposure. Domoic acid increased c-fos mRNA within 15 min and its translational product (c-Fos) within 1 h. c-Fos immunoreactivity was most prominent in the hippocampal formation, lateral septal nucleus, olfactory bulb, area postrema and the nucleus of the solitary tract.
