Complementary DNA clones for the boar preproacrosin have been isolated from a randomly primed testis cDNA library in lambda gt10 and from an oligo(dT)-primed testis cDNA in lambda gt11. The nucleotide sequence of the 1418-bp cDNA insert includes a 46-bp 5'-untranslated region, an open reading frame of 1248 bp corresponding to 416 amino acids (45.59 kDa) and(More)
The primary structure of mouse preproacrosin was deduced by nucleotide sequencing of cDNA clones isolated from a mouse testis cDNA library. The largest cDNA, with 1373 bp, consists of a 11-bp 5'untranslated sequence, a 1254-bp open reading frame terminated by a TGA triplet and a 105-bp 3' untranslated end, including one potential polyadenylation signal.

During spermatogenesis, the nucleoproteins undergo several dramatic changes as the germinal cells differentiate to produce the mature sperm. With nuclear elongation and condensation, the histones are replaced by basic spermatidal transition proteins, which are themselves subsequently replaced by protamines. We have isolated cDNA clones for one of the(More)
Forty human clinical Mycobacterium avium-M. intracellulare complex strains isolated in Greece were characterized to the species level by PCR with three sets of primers specific for one or both species. M. avium predominated in both human immunodeficiency virus-positive and -negative patients, but the frequency of M. intracellulare isolation appeared to be(More)
The expression of a H1 gene (H1.1) was studied in several human tissues. Northern blot analysis revealed that this gene is expressed in testis and thymus, but not in other human tissues like liver, spleen, lung, brain, thyroid gland and skin fibroblasts. Furthermore in situ hybridization on tissue sections revealed a cell type specific expression of histone(More)
