ABSTRACT Transgenic soybean (Glycine max) plants expressing Soybean mosaic virus (SMV) helper component-protease (HC-Pro) showed altered vegetative and reproductive phenotypes and responses to SMV infection. When inoculated with SMV, transgenic plants expressing the lowest level of HC-Pro mRNA and those transformed with the vector alone initially showed(More)
Beta-1,3-glucanase is one of the pathogenesis-related (PR) proteins involved in plant defense responses. A peach beta-1,3-glucanase gene, designated PpGns1, has been isolated and characterized. The deduced amino acid sequence of the product of PpGns indicates that it is a basic isoform (pI 9.8), and contains a putative signal peptide of 38 amino acids but(More)
To determine if proteins RNase III and rho, both of which can determine the 3' ends of RNA molecules, can complement each other, double mutants defective in these two factors were constructed. In all cases (four rho mutations tested) the double mutants were viable at lower temperatures, but were unable to grow at higher temperatures at which both of the(More)
Ricin, a phyto-toxin from the seeds of Ricinus communis, preferentially inhibits synthesis of myeloma protein by MOPC-315 cells as compared to the synthesis of general proteins. In contrast, cycloheximide inhibited equally both myeloma protein synthesis as well as general protein synthesis. These results suggest that proteins synthesized near or on cell(More)
The present paper points out lack of evidence to support the presently prevailing concept that E. coli mRNA turnover, in the gene expression process, cannot take place without mRNase(s). The present paper draws attention to possible physicochemical factors involved in the degradation, and advances a notion of non-enzymatic spontaneous degradation of E. coli(More)
