Transcription factors play vital roles in stress signal transduction and gene expression modulation. The sequence analysis shows that MdCBF1 from Malus domestica Borkh. cv. Fuji contained an AP2 core domain of 56 amino acids. By comparison of deduced amino acid sequences of CBF related proteins, we deduced that MdCBF1 is a CBF transcription factor gene(More)
Glutamine synthetase (GS) in nodule cytosol plays a major role in the assimilation of the ammonium produced by biological nitrogen fixation. To characterize the GS protein family in Glycine max root nodules, the catalytical properties of 2 GS1 isoenzymes (GS1β1 and GS1γ1) were compared in this study. Although, GmGS1β1 and GmGS1γ1 have very similar kinetic(More)
Ebola virus (EBOV) harbors an RNA genome encapsidated by nucleoprotein (NP) along with other viral proteins to form a nucleocapsid complex. Previous Cryo-eletron tomography and biochemical studies have shown the helical structure of EBOV nucleocapsid at nanometer resolution and the first 450 amino-acid of NP (NPΔ451–739) alone is capable of forming a(More)
