We describe cDNA clones for a cell surface proteoglycan that bears both heparan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate and that links the cytoskeleton to the interstitial matrix. The cDNA encodes a unique core protein of 32,868 D that contains several structural features consistent with its role as a glycosamino-glycan-containing matrix anchor. The sequence shows(More)
Parrotfishes are an ecologically and commercially important teleost group whose grazing contributes to maintaining coral-dominated states on hermatypic reefs. However, overfishing has skewed sex ratios of Atlantic parrotfishes because fishing has disproportionate impacts on larger individuals, and males are generally larger than females. Whether protection(More)
Epidemiological studies of Clostridium difficile diarrhoeal disease have been hindered by the lack of a typing scheme for this organism. A typing method based on the incorporation of sulphur-35-labelled methionine into cellular proteins and their separation by sodium dodecylsulphate/polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis showed clear pattern differences between(More)
