In tomato, nine independent EMS-induced mutants representing recessive mutations at three different loci (gib-1, gib-2, and gib-3) were isolated. Six of these have an almost absolute gibberellin requirement for seed germination and elongation growth. In addition, the leaves are darker green, smaller, and changed in structure as compared to wild type. The(More)
Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) immediate-early 63 protein (IE63) is abundantly expressed during both acute infection in vitro and latent infection in human ganglia. Using the yeast two-hybrid system, we found that VZV IE63 interacts with human antisilencing function 1 protein (ASF1). ASF1 is a nucleosome assembly factor which is a member of the H3/H4 family(More)
Variation within a 523 nucleotide region proximal to the 5′ terminus of seven rubella virus strains has been anlysed. Compared to the Therien strain twenty sites of nucleotide variation have been identified, three of which are in the 5′ untranslated region. Individual strains have between three and nine nucleotide differences, only three of which result in(More)
