A Thermostable Laccase from Streptomyces lavendulae REN-7: Purification, Characterization, Nucleotide Sequence, and Expression
TLDR
This polyphenoloxidase found in the cell extract of Streptomyces lavendulae REN-7 is a thermostable laccase that retained its original activity after 20 min of incubation at even 70°C.
Azaphilones, furanoisophthalides, and amino acids from the extracts of Monascus pilosus-fermented rice (red-mold rice) and their chemopreventive effects.
TLDR
Among the compounds tested, seven compounds on TPA-induced inflammation, and six compounds on EBV-EA activation, exhibited potent inhibitory effects.
Cell-Autonomous and -Nonautonomous Functions of LAR in R7 Photoreceptor Axon Targeting
TLDR
It is shown that the LAR receptor tyrosine phosphatase is required in the eye for correct targeting of R7 axons, which suggests that LAR can act both as a receptor in R7, and as a ligand provided by R8.
Expression of glucose transporter‐1 in human gastric carcinoma
TLDR
The objective of the current study was to examine the expression and distribution of Glut1 and its relation to clinicopathologic parameters in patients with gastric carcinoma.
Genetic mapping with SNP markers in Drosophila
TLDR
This work reports the identification of 7,223 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and 1,392 insertions/deletions (InDels) in common laboratory strains of Drosophila and establishes PCR product–length polymorphism (PLP) or restriction fragment-length polymorphic assays for 215 of these markers.
No associations of p73 G4C14-to-A4T14 at exon 2 and p53 Arg72Pro polymorphisms with the risk of digestive tract cancers in Japanese.
TLDR
A case-control study was conducted to examine the possible association between digestive tract cancers and p73 G4C14-to-A4T14 at exon 2 and p53 Arg72Pro polymorphisms in Japanese and no significant differences in the genotype frequencies were observed.
The Transmembrane Protein Golden Goal Regulates R8 Photoreceptor Axon-Axon and Axon-Target Interactions
TLDR
It is shown here that the transmembrane protein Golden goal (Gogo), which is dynamically expressed in all R neurons and localizes predominantly to growth cones, is required in two distinct steps of R8 photoreceptor axon pathfinding: Gogo regulates axon-axon interactions and ax on-target interactions in R8PhotoreceptorAxons.
Micropruina glycogenica gen. nov., sp. nov., a new Gram-positive glycogen-accumulating bacterium isolated from activated sludge.
TLDR
A new Gram-positive non-spore-forming bacterium was isolated from an activated sludge reactor showing enhanced biological phosphorus removal activity and it is proposed that a new genus and species, Micropruina glycogenica, should be created for the new isolate.
Deficient 17β-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Type 2 Expression in Endometriosis: Failure to Metabolize 17β-Estradiol
TLDR
It follows that the product of the aromatase reaction, namely estrone, that is weakly estrogenic can be converted to the potent estrogen, 17β-estradiol, in endometriotic tissues.
Anti-inflammatory activities of the triterpene acids from the resin of Boswellia carteri.
TLDR
Upon evaluation of 17 compounds, 1-14 and 16-18, and compound 15, semi-synthesized from 14 by acetylation, for their inhibitory activity against 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced inflammation in mice, all of the compounds exhibited marked anti-inflammatory activity with a 50% inhibitory dose (ID(50) of 0.05-0.49 mg/ear.
