Three strains of Salmonella enterica serovar Infantis isolated from healthy broiler chickens from 2012 to 2013 have been sequenced. Comparison of these and previously published S Infantis genome sequences of broiler origin in 1996 and 2004 will provide new insight into the genome evolution and recent spread of S Infantis in poultry.
Between 1998 and 2000, 64 breeding birds of Barn Owl in Hungary were checked for plumage coloration. No relationship between the colour morphs of partners were found. Thus, coloration does not influence pairing. Zwischen 1998 und 2000 wurde die Gefiederfärbung von 64 Brutpaaren der Schleiereule aus ganz Ungarn untersucht. Zwischen den Gefiederfärbungen der(More)
The comparative genomic analysis of a large number of orthologous promoter regions of the chordate and plant genes from the DoOP databases shows thousands of conserved motifs. Most of these motifs differ from any known transcription factor binding site (TFBS). To identify common conserved motifs, we need a specific tool to be able to search amongst them.(More)
Activation of the lipid-regulated nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma) modifies the immunophenotype of monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DCs). However it has not been analyzed in a systematic manner how lipid metabolism and immune regulation are connected at the transcriptional level via this receptor. Here we(More)
Mangalicas are fatty type local/rare pig breeds with an increasing presence in the niche pork market in Hungary and in other countries. To explore their genetic resources, we have analysed data from next-generation sequencing of an individual male from each of three Mangalica breeds along with a local male Duroc pig. Structural variations, such as SNPs,(More)
Many articles have been published on the uncertainty analysis of high temperature gas kinetic systems that are based on detailed reaction mechanisms. In all these articles a temperature independent relative uncertainty of the rate coefficient is assumed, although the chemical kinetics databases suggest temperature dependent uncertainty factors for most of(More)
Prokaryotic repressor-operator systems provide exemplars for the sequence-specific interactions between DNA and protein. The crucial atomic contacts of the two macromolecules are attained in a compact, geometrically defined structure of the DNA-protein complex. The pitch of the DNA interface seems an especially sensitive part of this architecture because(More)
Rhizobial surface polysaccharides, including capsular polysaccharides (KPS), are involved in symbiotic infection. The rkp-3 locus of Sinorhizobium meliloti 41 is responsible for the production of pseudaminic acid, one of the components of the KR5 antigen, a strain-specific KPS. We have extended the sequence determination and genetic dissection of the rkp-3(More)
Wheat is the leading source of vegetable protein in the human diet, and metabolites are crucial for both plant development and human nutrition. The recent advances in metabolomics provided an opportunity to perform an untargeted metabolite analysis in this important crop. Wheat was characterised at the metabolite level during cold acclimation and transition(More)
