The Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is a national user facility with massive-scale DNA sequencing and analysis capabilities dedicated to advancing genomics for bioenergy and environmental applications. Beyond generating tens of trillions of DNA bases annually, the Institute develops and maintains data management systems and(More)
MycoCosm is a fungal genomics portal (http://jgi.doe.gov/fungi), developed by the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute to support integration, analysis and dissemination of fungal genome sequences and other 'omics' data by providing interactive web-based tools. MycoCosm also promotes and facilitates user community participation through the(More)
The Genomes OnLine Database (GOLD, http://www.genomesonline.org/) is a comprehensive resource for centralized monitoring of genome and metagenome projects worldwide. Both complete and ongoing projects, along with their associated metadata, can be accessed in GOLD through precomputed tables and a search page. As of September 2011, GOLD, now on version 4.0,(More)
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI), a national user facility, serves the diverse scientific community by providing integrated high-throughput sequencing and computational analysis to enable system-based scientific approaches in support of DOE missions related to clean energy generation and environmental characterization. The(More)
Dynamics of indices characterizing the process of adaptation of operators to complicated conditions of vital activity was studied with psychophysiological monitoring. This technique is based on the complex analysis of subjective and objective estimations of the current psychoemotional state and physiological and biochemical indices. We analyzed the data(More)
Glutamate receptors mediate excitatory neurotransmission in the brain and are important in the formation of memory and in some neurodegenerative disorders. A complementary DNA clone that encoded a 33-kilodalton protein (GR33) was obtained by screening a library with an antibody generated against glutamate binding proteins. The sequence of GR33 is identical(More)
Polyclonal antibodies raised against rat syntaxin-1B and an affinity-purified fraction have been used to study the functional role of this protein in transmitter release from Aplysia neurons. In a ganglionic protein extract, this fraction recognized a 37,000 molecular weight protein which therefore might be the Aplysia homologue of rat brain syntaxin-1B.(More)
Changes in gene expression within the hippocampus induced by denervation after electrolytic fimbria-fornix lesion in rat were compared to morphological and biochemical alterations. Fimbria-fornix lesion results in degeneration of hippocampal cholinergic terminals as evidenced by a sustained (2 days to 1 month) decrease in cholineacetyltransferase (ChAT)(More)
Repetitive activation of excitatory synapses in the hippocampus produces a persistent enhancement of synaptic efficiency known as long-term potentiation (LTP). In anesthetized and in freely moving rats, the induction of LTP in the perforant path led to a transient increase in the amount of messenger RNA (mRNA) coding for a presynaptic glutamate receptor(More)
mRNA, Western analysis and immunohistochemistry were used to study the expression of the small heat shock protein (HSP) 27 in the rat septum and hippocampus following fimbria-fornix lesions, a model of neurodegeneration and regeneration. (HSP) 27 mRNA level was increased 2.5-fold in the medial septum 3 days after lesion and this increase persisted for 10(More)
