Biomass Gasifier "Tars": Their Nature, Formation, and Conversion
The main purpose of this review is to update the information on gasification tar, the most cumbersome and problematic parameter in any gasification commercialization effort. The work aims to presentExpand
WDR5 Associates with Histone H3 Methylated at K4 and Is Essential for H3 K4 Methylation and Vertebrate Development
Histone H3 lysine 4 (K4) methylation has been linked to the transcriptional activation in a variety of eukaryotic species. Here we show that a common component of MLL1, MLL2, and hSet1 H3 K4Expand
Regulation of MLL1 H3K4 methyltransferase activity by its core components
Histone H3 Lys4 (H3K4) methylation is a prevalent mark associated with transcription activation. A common feature of several H3K4 methyltransferase complexes is the presence of three structuralExpand
A PHD finger of NURF couples histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation with chromatin remodelling
Lysine methylation of histones is recognized as an important component of an epigenetic indexing system demarcating transcriptionally active and inactive chromatin domains. Trimethylation of histoneExpand
Physical Association and Coordinate Function of the H3 K4 Methyltransferase MLL1 and the H4 K16 Acetyltransferase MOF
A stable complex containing MLL1 and MOF has been immunoaffinity purified from a human cell line that stably expresses an epitope-tagged WDR5 subunit. Stable interactions between MLL1 and MOF wereExpand
MLL targets SET domain methyltransferase activity to Hox gene promoters.
MLL, the human homolog of Drosophila trithorax, maintains Hox gene expression in mammalian embryos and is rearranged in human leukemias resulting in Hox gene deregulation. How MLL or MLL fusionExpand
RAD6-Mediated Transcription-Coupled H2B Ubiquitylation Directly Stimulates H3K4 Methylation in Human Cells
H2B ubiquitylation has been implicated in active transcription but is not well understood in mammalian cells. Beyond earlier identification of hBRE1 as the E3 ligase for H2B ubiquitylation in humanExpand
Menin associates with a trithorax family histone methyltransferase complex and with the hoxc8 locus.
The cellular function of the menin tumor suppressor protein, product of the MEN1 gene mutated in familial multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1, has not been defined. We now show that menin isExpand
Molecular characterization of the pyrolysis of biomass
Application de la spectrometrie de masse a faisceau a l'etude des mecanismes moleculaires de la pyrolyse du bois et de ses principaux constituants (cellulose, lignine et hemicellulose)
The behavior of inorganic material in biomass-fired power boilers: Field and laboratory experiences
This paper highlights some of the major findings of the Alkali Deposits Investigation, a collaborative effort to understand the causes of unmanageable ash deposits in biomass-fired electric powerExpand
