Galacturonosyltransferases (GalATs) are required for the synthesis of pectin, a family of complex polysaccharides present in the cell walls of all land plants. We report the identification of a pectin GalAT (GAUT1) using peptide sequences obtained from Arabidopsis thaliana proteins partially purified for homogalacturonan (HG) alpha-1,4-GalAT activity.(More)
We investigated controls on stream sediment denitrification in nine headwater streams in the Kalamazoo River Watershed, Michigan, USA. Factors influencing denitrification were determined by using experimental assays based on the chloramphenicol-amended acetylene inhibition technique. Using a coring technique, we found that sediment denitrification was(More)
Protein expression from human embryonic kidney cells (HEK 293) is an important tool for structural and clinical studies. It is previously shown that microRNAs (small, noncoding RNAs) are effective means for improved protein expression from these cells, and by conducting a high-throughput screening of the human microRNA library, several microRNAs are(More)
