We have obtained and characterized a genomic clone of SEC14, a Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene whose product is required for export of yeast secretory proteins from the Golgi complex. Gene disruption experiments indicated that SEC14 is an essential gene for yeast vegetative growth. Nucleotide sequence analysis revealed the presence of an intron within the(More)
Spatial learning ability was quantitated in young and aged Long-Evans rats, and molecular markers were assessed in the striatum and hippocampal formation using immunocytochemical, immunoblotting, and in situ hybridization histochemical procedures. The mRNA for beta-amyloid precursor protein (beta APP), most likely the transcript encoding the 695-amino acid(More)
Messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules encoding proteins related to the presynaptic cholinergic and neurotrophin systems were quantitated in the hippocampus and basal forebrain of Long-Evans rats with spatial learning ability assessed in the Morris water maze. The reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction showed that the mRNAs for the low-affinity(More)
Human growth hormone (hGH), a 191 residue protein containing two disulfide bonds, was fused to the carboxyl-terminal domain of the gene III protein, a minor coat protein exposed at one end of the filamentous phage M13. The gene fusion was cloned into a plasmid containing origins of replication for Escherichia coli and filamentous phage and was packaged into(More)
Transgenic mice carrying heterologous genes directed by a 670-bp segment of the regulatory sequence from the human transferrin (TF) gene demonstrated high expression in brain. Mice carrying the chimeric 0.67kbTF-CAT gene expressed TF-CAT in neurons and glial cells of the nucleus basalis, the cerebrum, corpus callosum, cerebellum, and hippocampus. In brains(More)
African-American Vernacular English (AAVE) is systematic, rooted in history, and important as an identity marker and expressive resource for its speakers. In these respects, it resembles other vernacular or nonstandard varieties, like Cockney or Appalachian English. But like them, AAVE can trigger discrimination in the workplace, housing market, and(More)
