The forespore line of gene expression in Bacillus subtilis.
Endospore formation by Bacillus subtilis involves three differentiating cell types, the predivisional cell, the mother cell, and the forespore. Here we report the program of gene expression in theExpand

Regulatory loop between redox sensing of the NADH/NAD(+) ratio by Rex (YdiH) and oxidation of NADH by NADH dehydrogenase Ndh in Bacillus subtilis.
NADH dehydrogenase is a key component of the respiratory chain. It catalyzes the oxidation of NADH by transferring electrons to ubiquinone and establishes a proton motive force across the cellExpand

spoIVH (ykvV), a requisite cortex formation gene, is expressed in both sporulating compartments of Bacillus subtilis.
It is well known that the ykvU-ykvV operon is under the regulation of the sigma(E)-associated RNA polymerase (Esigma(E)). In our study, we observed that ykvV is transcribed together with the upstreamExpand

Ex vivo large-scale generation of human red blood cells from cord blood CD34+ cells by co-culturing with macrophages
We generated red blood cells (RBC) from cord blood (CB) CD34+ cells using a four-phase culture system. We first cultured CB CD34+ cells on telomerase gene-transduced human stromal cells in serum-freeExpand

Solid-solution reactions in As(V) sorption by schwertmannite.
Sorption behavior of As(V) by synthesized schwertmannite was examined under pH 3.3 as a function of As(V) concentration in the initial solution and interpreted in term of solid-solution reactions.Expand
