The 2,160,837-base pair genome sequence of an isolate of Streptococcus pneumoniae, a Gram-positive pathogen that causes pneumonia, bacteremia, meningitis, and otitis media, contains 2236 predicted coding regions; of these, 1440 (64%) were assigned a biological role. Approximately 5% of the genome is composed of insertion sequences that may contribute to(More)

We previously showed that superoxide production after retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axotomy is an early step in signaling apoptosis. To better understand the source of superoxide, we compared the production of superoxide with different substrates in mitochondria isolated from rat cerebral cells and the RGC-like RGC-5 line in the presence of specific(More)

Background:Previously, using gene-knockdown techniques together with genome expression array analysis, we showed the gene protein Kinase C (PKC)-zeta (PRKCZ) to mediate the malignant phenotype of human prostate cancer. However, according to NCBI, the gene has undergone several major iterations. Therefore, to understand the relationship between its structure(More)
