A two-membrane system, or envelope, surrounds plastids. Because of the integration of chloroplast metabolism within the plant cell, the envelope is the site of many specific transport activities. However, only a few proteins involved in the processes of transport across the chloroplast envelope have been identified already at the molecular level. To(More)
X chromosome inactivation in both mouse and human requires the presence of a cis acting locus, the X inactivation centre. This locus is thought to be involved in the initiation and spreading of the inactivation signal in early development. In order to increase our understanding of the mouse X inactivation centre, a 94 kb region immediately distal to the(More)
DNA barcoding should provide rapid, accurate and automatable species identifications by using a standardized DNA region as a tag. Based on sequences available in GenBank and sequences produced for this study, we evaluated the resolution power of the whole chloroplast trn L (UAA) intron (254-767 bp) and of a shorter fragment of this intron (the P6 loop,(More)
Three novel human sequences showing striking homology to the recently described bovine Ca2+/calmodulin kinase II-dependent epithelial chloride channel bCaCC have been identified in an expressed sequence tags database. Full-length clones were isolated using a 5' RACE approach. The encoded predicted proteins display 65% overall homology to bCaCC. Tissue(More)
Analysis of the huge volumes of data generated by large scale sequencing projects clearly requires the construction of new sophisticated computer systems. These systems should be able to handle the biological data as well as the results of the analysis of this data. They should also help the user to choose the most appropriate method for a simple task and(More)
PepLine is a fully automated software which maps MS/MS fragmentation spectra of trypsic peptides to genomic DNA sequences. The approach is based on Peptide Sequence Tags (PSTs) obtained from partial interpretation of QTOF MS/MS spectra (first module). PSTs are then mapped on the six-frame translations of genomic sequences (second module) giving hits. Hits(More)
of eukaryotic genomes centered on the relations between genomic sequences and their chromosomal localization [8]. In their early stages of development, ColiGene and MultiMap integrated a few sequence analysis methods. But, little by little, we found useful to provide access to the methods associated with a peculiar knowledge base to the other. Moreover, it(More)
