Although PCR technology has obvious limitations, the potentially high degree of sensitivity and specificity explains why it has been the first choice of most analytical laboratories interested in detection of genetically modified (GM) organisms (GMOs) and derived materials. Because the products that laboratories receive for analysis are often processed and(More)
We report the development of an oligonucleotide microarray for the simultaneous detection of six important cereal food plant species from the Poaceae based on the chloroplast trnL intron sequence. We used universal primers to amplify the trnL intron from wheat, rye, barley, oat, rice, and maize, followed by a cyclic labeling of oligonucleotides probes and(More)
CIN85 has been demonstrated to interact with a number of proteins involved in endocytosis and intracellular sorting. However, the exact functional role of CIN85 in endocytosis remains unclear. We have investigated whether CIN85 plays a role in EGF-induced EGF receptor (EGFR) internalization, as previously suggested, or whether CIN85 is rather involved in(More)
We report the development of a duplex real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) for the simultaneous detection and quantification of wheat- and barley-derived DNA. We used a single primer pair to amplify the single-copy gene PKABA1 from wheat and barley, using minor-groove-binding probes to distinguish between the two cereals. The assay was fully specific,(More)
The ribosomal DNA region of the myxomycete Fuligo septica was investigated and found to contain 12 group I introns (four in the small subunit and eight in the large subunit ribosomal RNAs). We have performed molecular and phylogenetic analyses to provide insight into intron structure and function, intron-host biology, and intron origin and evolution. The(More)
Group I introns are relatively common within nuclear ribosomal DNA of eukaryotic microorganisms, especially in myxomycetes. Introns at position S516 in the small subunit ribosomal RNA gene are particularly common, but have a sporadic occurrence in myxomycetes. Fuligo septica, Badhamia gracilis, and Physarum flavicomum, all members of the family Physaraceae,(More)
Pin bones represent a major problem for processing and quality of fish products. Development of methods of removal requires better knowledge of the pin bones’ attachment to the muscle and structures involved in the breakdown during loosening. In this study, pin bones from cod and salmon were dissected from fish fillets after slaughter or storage on ice for(More)
Matrix metalloproteinases have important functions for tissue turnover in fish, with relevance both for the fish industry and molecular and cellular research on embryology, inflammation and tissue repair. These metalloproteinases have been studied in different fish types, subjected to both aquaculture and experimental conditions. This review highlights(More)
Primary muscle cell model systems from farm animals are widely used to acquire knowledge about muscle development, muscle pathologies, overweight issues and tissue regeneration. The morphological properties of a bovine primary muscle cell model system, in addition to cell proliferation and differentiation features, were characterized using(More)
The oncoprotein ErbB3 is overexpressed in several human cancers, for example in pancreatic adenocarcinoma and in ovarian cancers, and ErbB3-containing heterodimers have been demonstrated to be potent signaling units in carcinogenesis. This especially applies to ErbB2-ErbB3 and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-ErbB3 heterodimers providing(More)
