A bush, not a tree: The extraordinary diversity of cold‐water basal foraminiferans extends to warm‐water environments
TLDR
This work uses a series of targeted DNA-based surveys and focused morphological searches to document the diversity of allogromiid foraminiferans at selected locations along the U.S. eastern seaboard, revealing the presence of many new allogomiid taxa and documented striking differences in the allogRomiid assemblages between the three locations.
Molecular cloning and expression of hipA, a gene of Escherichia coli K-12 that affects frequency of persistence after inhibition of murein synthesis
TLDR
Information and the recovery of only one orientation of hipA+ when the cloning site is close to a strong promoter suggest that a high level of expression of the gene is not tolerated by E. coli.
Drosophila Ninjurin A Induces Nonapoptotic Cell Death
TLDR
In vivo studies identify a new role for the Ninjurin family in inducing nonapoptotic cell death in Drosophila and generate a null mutant of NijA, which displayed no detectable phenotype.
Molecular evolution of foraminiferal tubulins
Foraminiferans are known to be highly divergent in several normally conserved genes. Although the best-understood example of this phenomenon is the ribosomal small subunit (Pawlowski, 2000; Habura et
Feasibility of re-using PETE soda bottles to exclude oxygen during storage of low moisture foods
Many consumers are beginning to store grain on their own creating a need for easy disinfestation methods that can be accomplished in the home. Oxygen deprivation has proven to be an effective method
Hidden diversity of allogromiid foraminiferans in low-latitude environments
Foraminiferal species distribution and richness is usually judged by examining tests (Sen Gupta, 1999). It has long been known that some groups of foraminiferans, particularly the allogromiid taxa,
