A synthetic gene encoding the Schizophyllum commune xylanase XynA was constructed by a novel PCR-based procedure. Three long oligonucleotides were synthesized and used in combination with flanking PCR primers to generate a 607 base pair gene which contained 31 unique locations for restriction enzyme cleavage. The amino acid sequence was tailored for(More)
Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) is involved in key cellular processes such as DNA replication and repair, gene transcription, cell proliferation and apoptosis. The role of PARP-1 in prostate cancer development and progression is not fully understood. The present study investigated the function of PARP-1 in prostate growth and tumorigenesis in vivo.(More)
The study used critical discourse analysis (CDA) to elucidate normative structures of ethical behavior in university research administration which may be useful for knowledge transference to future studies of research integrity. Research administration appears to support integrity in the research environment through four very strong normative domains: (1)(More)
